The screen says test tone "on" (or off, when I toggle), but there is no sound. I checked with OPPO support and was told that I either must have a headphone connected to the headphone output (I don't) or I am using a digital output connection.
I am running the Oppo direct to amp (5.0) via dedicated stereo RCA outputs (plus center and surround outputs). Relevant settings are SACD multichannel, Secondary Audio off, HDMI audio off, coax/optical Bitstream (but nothing connected), SACD PCM, Speaker configuration: Front Left & Right: Large, 0 trim; Center and rears: small 0 trim; Subwoofer off; Down Mix: 5.1; Crossover 110hz; Stereo Signal: Down-mixed stereo. I am feeding the dedicated stereo outputs to a subwoofer, using the subwoofer crossover to feed the main front speakers. My only digital output connection is HDMI 1 to the TV. As suggested by Oppo, I upgraded Firmware to BDP10X-77-0827.
What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any help.
The highlighted setting above is your problem. Selecting Stereo Signal DOWN-MIXED STEREO means the Dedicated Stereo Analog L/R output pairs (both the RCA and the XLR pair) operate independently of the Speaker Configuration controls that adjust the multi-channel Analog outputs.
That includes Volume Trims and the Test Tones.
Instead, set Stereo Signal FRONT LEFT/RIGHT
. Wire your choice of the Dedicated L/R pairs and also the remaining speaker connections from the multi-channel set. The Dedicated L/R pair will now respond to all the Speaker Configuration settings (including Crossover) which normally affect the Left Front / Right Front pair from the multi-channel Analog set.
Also note that in a 5.1 speaker configuration your pair of Surround speakers should be connected to the SIDE Surround outputs of the player, regardless of how far back you have them physically located. If you have them connected to the REAR Surround outputs and are trying to get Test Tones to play when you select the Side speakers in Speaker Configuration, then of course that won't work either.
Once you've corrected the above, to get a test tone to play:
1) Remove any disc and make sure you are not playing content from an Internet app or media file (attached or over the network). Also make sure the Input setting of the player is set to Blu-ray Player -- i.e., that Home Menu is showing when you are not doing anything.
2) Go into Setup > Audio Processing > Speaker Configuration, scroll around to Test Tones and turn them ON. Then scroll to each speaker in turn to select the Test Tone for that speaker. Only speakers that are enabled will have a Test tone.
