Not enough 4k ports on TV, any solution?

hi.. getting SKY Q installed today. my TV is a Panasonic 58dx750b which I believe of the 4 HDMI's only 2 can show 4k content.

In the 4K ports I have PS4 pro and a Panasonic HTE80 soundbox which works with my TV remote via ARC.

What do I do here about the SKY Q box?

HDMI switcher box. You can get 4k ones that automatically switch when signal is coming from device.

Does HDR come through them tho?
Does the Panasonic HTE80 not have an input?

I thought you wanted to know if HDR came through the switch boxes?

sorry, didn't realise the age of the soundbar thing. Does it connect to the tv via optical out of bluetooth. Seems a waste to send a signal to a soundbase via hdmi.

Have you tried connecting the Sky Q box to HDMI 3 or 4? HDMI 1 and 2 may just be the only HDMI inputs that work with 4K HDR but the others should output 4K without HDR too. As Sky Q doesn’t have HDR, it’d be fine on the HDMI 3 or 4 inputs.

*Edit*
Nevermind. Apparently Sky Q uses HDCP 2.2 and that’s the issue here as only two of your HDMI ports are HDCP 2.2 compatible. You’re going to need a hdmi switch box or try outputting audio via optical cable from the tv to the soundbase. I’d go with the optical cable option personally.

The optical cable is an option but I assume that would mean a seperate remote for the sound bar? I like the fact via ARC the soundbar goes on and off with the telly remote.
Wait I thought all HDMI ports support 4k
