Not necessary. Only power off any/all devices using wired and wireless networking.

If your TV already does a good job with native resolutions, then no need to pass through the OPPO. On the other hand it you are getting a messy image, then the 103D might help.

If you like the Darbee processing then that is yet another reason to pass through the 103D.
Either way, whether you're sending the native signal thru the Oppo or bypassing it, and going direct to your tv, you'll still be hit with the annyoing 2-3 second hdmi handshake. For this, I chose not to output native video from my fios dvr. I don't know about you, but I prefer snappy/quick channel changes, and I constantly flip channels at night. If you don't switch often between 720p, 1080i, or 480i broadcasts while watching network tv, then sending native video thru your Oppo or bypassing it direct to your tv is a choice only you can decide. Pick what looks best to you. My tv does a great job at upscaling/deinterlacing, and I don't have the Darbee version Oppo player, so I chose to bypass my 105, and send 1080i video direct to my tv. The only reason I need to turn on my Oppo player is either for playing audio or popping in a shiny disk to watch a flick. I like Netflix, but use my tv's smarthub Flix app to watch movies.

Is cinavia enforced on either of the two HDMI inputs on the 103d? Let's say I have my ISO capable BDP-93 plugged into the front HDMI input on the 103d and load an ISO infected with cinavia. Will the 103d detect the cinavia watermark and mute the audio? Sorry if this has been answered already; I tried searching and found someone asking a similar question last year but I don't think it was ever answered.

edit: question #2 : Does the netflix app play content at the original framerate?

Please excuse this newbie's question, but does my 103D have to be on in order to take advantage of a the HDMI input? In other words, is there a pass through capability like on my receiver?

Thanks Bill. It makes sense now that I think about it...the Darbee circuitry needs power in order to work. Back to bed for me.

I finally got a 4K TV to test everything out with routing components with my old AVC with basic HDMI. I ended up eliminating three components in the process and get a much better image all around. This might be helpful for others who want new capabilities like 3D and ARC without buying a new AVR.

So, a little convoluted, but here is what I did...

1) I use split AV on the 103D. First, I connect the 103D directly to the TV via HDMI out 1. I connect the AVR via HDMI 2. But I also connect the HDMI out from the AVR into the rear HDMI in of the 103D.

2) I connect my Dish Network STB and my AppleTV to the HDMI inputs of the AVR -- as well as an old VCR with analog inputs that get output as digital by the AVR

3) Because I ran out of inputs on my AVR I needed to route another component, an HD DVD player, to the front HDMI input on the 103D.

So, I was able to eliminate the ROKU box that I was only really using for NetFlix - using the 103D now. I can use the ARC from my TV to route audio to my AVR -- so one HDMI cable to the TV. I can use Darbee processing as well as 4K upscaling for all inputs.

I was able to program activities with with my Harmony ONE remote. I still need to tweak a few things after rerouting everything.

I'm still having trouble with my Toshiba HD A30 HD-DVD player to work properly. I get audio -- but a green screen on the video. I'll have to play with that some more. I may have to try my other, XA2 player, to see if that works better.
