I've had a similar experience with the HFPA Symphonica from George Michael and others, but never one in MC. Has anyone else had this happen?
I finally had a chance to listen to a stereo HFPA disc. I'm having the same issue as you only worse. When I switch audio it does go to PLIIx for both DTS and TrueHD. But I can get it to stereo by toggling the stereo/direct button. The issue I'm having is that when I switched audio modes through the 103 I lost audio several times. I powered off the 103 and still no audio with the HFPA disc (Stones Grrrr!). I had to change inputs on my Denon 4311 to get audio back. I just tried switching audio and I lost audio again. It took a number of input changes with the 4311 and powering off the 103 to get audio back.
This is crazy! I firmly believe it is an issue with this particular HFPA disc. I have a number of other Blu-ray audio discs and I've had no issues like this when switching audio modes with the 103. I might email Oppo to see if other 103/105 owners have reported the same issue.
I was just reading the Grrr! thread and others were having issues with audio on that disc. What corrected the issue is changing the HDMI Audio setting from Bitstream to LPCM in the menu of the 103. Once I did that I can switch audio formats without losing audio. It seems this is an issue with this HFPA disc. I prefer Bitstream so the audio codec will show on the display of the 4311. But when listening to Grrr! I'll switch it to LPCM.
