Background: on my previous cable box I had HDMI going to my TV and Toslink to my Integra 80.3. I also have a Yamaha sound bar connect to my TV via Toslink for regular TV to keep heat loads down. With the TiVo mini it only has HDMI out so I first just used ARC to feed audio to the 80.3 when wanting surround with the TiVo mini DVR. Going in and out of menus was a pain so I hooked the TiVo to the 103 which has HDMI1 to the TV and HDMI2 to the 80.3. Since then, I get popping when restarting after pause.
What could the issue be? When I first got the 103 I used the HDMI in back as now with no issues- just changed it as I did not have a Harmony remote then and did not like the extra steps.
In the OPPO, set Split A/V.
In the OPPO, try setting both HDMI Audio LPCM and HDMI Audio Bitstream output (not AUTO) and see if either of those makes a difference.
If you still have (currently unused) HDMI from the Integra to your TV, try temporarily unplugging that HDMI cable and see if it makes a difference. There are things we can look at to fix this if that's the culprit.
Unless you have some requirement to use dual HDMI cabling out of the OPPO (e.g., you want to get 3D to your TV but the Integra won't pass that), simplify your cabling: Cable HDMI 1 out of the OPPO to the Integra and HDMI from the Integra to the TV. Leave HDMI 2 out from the OPPO uncabled. See if that makes a difference.
I'm assuming that you do not ALSO have HDMI from the Integra coming into the other HDMI Input of the OPPO. If you DO have that, then temporarily unplug that and see if that makes a difference.
At this point we are just collecting information. The two most common reasons for pops is that (1) the AVR is not properly muting the digital audio input while it figures out if what's coming in is in fact a well formed digital audio stream -- part of the handshake process, and (2) you have some ground voltage passing between your collection of equipment which means that when the AVR unmutes its Analog audio outputs the signal jumps up to that voltage causing the audible transient.
Isolating (2) is a nuisance, so let's try working on (1) first.
