Question about HDMI-CEC control on a BDP-103:
My HTPC is plugged into my receiver (a Pioneer) on an HDMI input port. My BDP-103 is also plugged into my receiver on a second HDMI input port. The receiver output is then plugged into my TV (a Pioneer) via HDMI. Pretty standard configuration. So far so good.
My problem is that if I want to use the HTPC I have to power down the OPPO. If I don't, the receiver will constantly try to switch back to HDMI input for the OPPO, even if it's not playing anything. To me, this is unusual behavior and I have never seen this problem with three other BD players I have used prior to the 103. What's this all about? I want HDMI-CEC control, but I have never had this problem. I do want the 103 to wake up the TV when I power up or insert a new disc, but why does it have to continously broadcast a command that it's on and everybody should get configured to use it? It's sort of like the loud guy at the end of the bar that you can tolerate for a while but who won't ever shut up when you want to ignore him.
This is my first OPPO. Do they all do this? I know I can put the 103 in limited CEC mode but I still want it to send out a power-up command when I turn it on or insert a disc.
