Sorry I'm just very familiar with it :-)
I'll try switching my Classe over to the HDMI 2 tonight to see if that fixes the 2 minute handshake.
Yes, the QDEO video processor will have benefits for all forms of video output on HDMI 1.
And yes, do try HDMI 2 and let Oppo know your results.
If you find you are having problems getting an HDMI connection, try temporarily changing the output resolution of the 93. Use the Resolution button on the remote along with Up/Down arrow to select a resolution (visible in the front panel display) and then press Enter to make that change happen.
For example, if a 1080p connection doesn't seem to be happening, try temporarily changing to 1080i, then back to 1080p once the 1080i connection establishes. An output resolution change will cause the HDMI handshake to start over and may get you past whatever temporary glitch is getting in your way.
Also, for folks using Source Direct or who have 1080p/24 Auto or ON set, be aware that multiple handshakes are *NORMAL* as the disc content changes between 1080i/60 and 1080p/24. For example as you move between menus, warning screens, and the movie itself.
So for example as a disc starts up, you may see several sets of flashes -- indicating several new HDMI handshakes -- as the disc loads its playback program, previews, and menus. Some discs take a while to load that stuff before real video begins and so it may look like the player is stuck trying to establish the initial connection when in fact it is just the disc going through all its initial rigmarole prior to real playback commencing.
Then, when you select Play from the disc's menus, you may get additional HDMI handshakes as the disc does its FBI warning screens and the like and then finally transitions to the start of the real movie playback.
Now, HDMI 1 *IS* taking longer than it should to do each individual handshake in the 1108 firmware, and that's being addressed, but the NUMBER of new handshakes between loading the disc and finally getting the movie to play is something that's driven by the content coming off the disc.
