Thanks for any insights...
Yes, pretty easy to do. I had a LG 970 player with two HDMI out ports; One to the TV and one to the receiver. It worked fine and I didn’t have any lip sync issues. The main issue I had with it is that I had to switch the TV over to another HDMI port to watch it each time. I finally upgraded my receiver and now it just runs through without having to switch my input back and forth.

Haven't had any real issues with syncing, thankfully it's one of my only devices that doesn't have problems.

A splitter can also work, but you'd need to research one that doesn't downscale video/audio to the lowest device, but you're better off with a player with two HDMI outputs.
