I have pulled this off for my clients by using a multizone receiver and automation. The receiver must have a dedicated Zone 2 hdmi output. It will then handshake separately between the tv and pj. I then use automation such as Control4 to make switching between the two simple, and to drop the motorized screen, etc.

A cheaper way would be to use this:
AC-DA12-AUHD-GEN2: 18Gbps 1x2 w/ scaler & audio - AVPro Edge
It can split your avr hdmi out. Output one will pass full 4k hdr while output 2 handshakes independently with your pj and scales to 1080p sdr. It has edid management to ensure functionality. Good luck.

That's awesome. What receiver was it?

I've done this with a Marantz SR7009 and a Marantz AV7702. I know that the newer Marantz SR6xxx series and Denon X3xxx series (and up) have the same capability. They basically have built in hdmi matrixing. The key is that it must have a "main" out and "zone2" out. If there is a "main out" and "monitor" out only it will not work for you.
