EDITED: Had to correct the initial recovery procedure here.
1) Power on the player
2) Once the player has finished booting up (you are now on your Cable TV Input), press Tray Button on the Front Panel to open the tray.
3) Remove any disc that might be in the Tray.
4) Now press Tray Button on the Front Panel to close the tray.
5) Wait a moment for the player to check and determine there is not actually a disc in the tray.
6) Press Play button on the Front Panel.
This will get you into Setup menu. Then, using the buttons on Front Panel you can navigate to Setup > Device Setup > Power On Input and change that to Blu-ray player. Power cycle the player and you'll be back to normal Blu-ray player functionality.
Within Setup (using the Front Panel buttons), you can also adjust your Network settings so that the OPPO iOS or Android MediaControl app can access the player. Once you do that, you can then do all of the normal Remote functions via the app.
If you like to tinker, you can also send commands to the player via the Serial Port on the back panel, including Input selection.
NOTE: Blu-ray Player is the only Input choice which can be commanded directly within the Setup menu.
As for your existing remote, be sure to try new batteries, taking care that both are inserted the correct way around. Even if you just changed batteries, the ones you just used could be faulty.
Sometimes the player can't see the remote if the room is flooded with IR light. This might happen, for example, if you have a 3D display that is using IR emitters to sync its active, goofy 3D glasses.
It is also possible that you accidentally changed the setting either in the Remote or in the player as to which of the 3 command sets from the Remote is in use. To fix this, power up the player. Open the Tray using the Front Panel button. While the Tray is still open, press and hold the Enter button on the Remote for a few seconds. The player will switch itself to whichever command set is selected by the switch in the battery compartment of the Remote.
NOTE: If your Remote is truly dead, OPPO can sell you a replacement for just a few bucks.
