Silly question: if someone planned to use the Oppo 103 as a switcher/decoder for TiVo and ATV3 via HDMI inputs, with the Oppo connected on one HDMI output to a video display chain and the other HDMI output feeding into a Trinnov equipped R-972 acting as an specialized RC audio processor (Split A/V), can the Oppo be safely left as 'Always On', or is it only advisable to turn on/off in suspected HDMI handshake sequence (TV-R972-Denon 4311 as an 'amp' on Ext. In-Oppo)?
The room correction audio processor in this context would be non-ARC compatible.
There's a reason...we have a Harmony remote with macros, but I have one person in the HH who tends to sometimes do things manually that I'd have to retrain. I'm 99% sure I know what the answer will be, but double checking.
