I use both outputs. Split A/V mode allows you to send video out of HDMI 1 directly to your projector/monitor and send audio out of HDMI 2 to your receiver/processor.
That way, you avoid your receiver doing anything to the video signal along the way. Sometimes, even pass-thru mode can impact your video signal.
Worth noting, however, that HDMI 1 uses a Marvell QDEO video processor. HDMI 2 does not. So if you don't want the Oppo to do any video processing either, you can consider using HDMI2. However, you wont be able to (I don't believe) upscale to 4k on HDMI2.
it will all come down to personal preference. You'll need to experiment.
I have a 25' Redmere HDMI going from my Oppo directly to my projector.
