^ Thank you both especially Bob for the very detailed explanation. That makes perfect sense. I had completely misunderstood how 4:3/16:9 are handled on DVDs.

I wasn't going to use Source Direct for the time being anyways but I am planning to add a separate video processor in the near future mainly for calibration so that was my concern.

The AVR HDMI out to TV HDMI in should allow you to see the on screen menu. You will find that by toggling through your TV inputs, not your AVR inputs.
The above configuration is what I tried last time, the dual HDMI Split A/V recommended by Oppo. Everything worked, it just seems a bit confusing due to changing inputs on at least two devices to get where I need for tv or BD playback. I now have it like this again and will stick with it.

You're correct, the single HDMI to AVR did not work for 3D. My Pioneer AVR is great for surround sound and music but apparently pre-3D. At least I see no mention of 3D in the manual.

I previously had an AVR OUT to tv HDMI IN but still could not get the AVR on screen display when selecting that input on the tv; said 'not available'. Don't know why that is, but I don't currently need to make any AVR on screen adjustments. The PQ and sound is excellent. Using a new Sony 65W850A LED and very happy with it. Thanks to you, and the many experienced users on the forum for helping out the less technically enthusiastic among us.

Hopefully just a one time thing..
Sometimes a 'fly' (particle of long dust) can infiltrate the inside disc tray and land on the disc.
...Happened to me once or twice.

Or that.

QUESTION: Between the 103 and 103D, which one did Oppo sell the most units?

...I know, it's a tough question, but someone had to asked.

I don't understand this thinking. If you do a TV calibration, wouldn't you want it to go through exactly the same video device chain and settings that you will eventually WATCH through? Why would you do your calibration through a device chain and with device settings that eliminated everything you will actually be using when you actually do watch something?

My 103 HDMI-1 output goes through my Yamaha RX-V867 AVR (which supports 3D, so there's no concern), with all video processing in the 867 turned off. HDMI-1 output from the 867 goes to my Panny 65VT50, and HDMI-2 output from the 867 goes to my Sony 34XBR960 (which is another reason I route video from the 103 through the AVR, to support video delivery to two HDTVs). So all video processing is handled within the 103, and none is done by the AVR.

Also, my cable TV DVR HDMI output is sent through the rear HDMI input of the 103. This is another reason I want to use HDMI-1 output from the 103, because I want to be able to utilize the video cleanup/processing capability (and upconversion to 1080p) of the 103 for dealing with 720p/1080i HDTV input from cable. When playing 1080p BluRay discs or streaming 1080p Netflix, there's near-nothing that will happen using HDMI-1 output from the 103, and "near zero" is close enough to Source Direct for 1080p for me. But using the HDMI-1 output path for external cable HDMI input enhances HDTV substantially.

Anyway, when I had both of my TV's calibrated, I specifically had the signal generator's HDMI output go into the front HDMI input of the 103, leaving everything else in place: HDMI-1 out of the 103 into the AVR, HDMI-1 out of the AVR to the HDTVs. In other words I specifically wanted the calibration of the TVs to be done using exactly the same multi-device and signal path chain that would occur when normally watching HDTV or BD discs or Netflix streaming, as when the calibration signal generator was the source device. That allowed the calibration of each HDTV with the signal generator as the source to be such that all of the identical equipment and device settings would still be identical when true source was used... all flowing through the 103 and with HDMI-1 output.

Seems pointless to me to do a calibration through a different device/settings arrangement than what you will actually be watching true content through.
