    Hi all. I'd like to connect my MBP to my display via Displayport to get reliable 4K @ 60Hz video and I'd like to get digital audio from my receiver through HDMI (using Apple's AV USB-C adapter).

    While I would like to only transfer audio to the receiver, HDMI transmits both audio and video. In my case, however, the HDMI-out from the receiver will come back to the same display as the Displayport connection.

    What I want to avoid is the MBP thinking it's running 2 displays (through both DP and HDMI). Any advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    I suspect the monitor would either switch to one input and stay on its on, or require you to select one input.
