If this is answered somewhere in here I'd appreciate a link.
I suggest you have a look at wmcclain's Unofficial OPPO BDP-103 Frequently Asked Questions

Please excuse me if this has been answered before.
I wish to use a HDMI splitter coming from my Dish hopper, with one hdmi going directly to my TV and the second HDMI to the 'HDMI IN' on the 103D.
I see a number of options for splitters. Some powered, some just simple cable adapters with male HDMI in and two female HDMI connections out.
When watching regular TV--news, etc.-- I would like to bypass the Oppo. When watching HBO movies, sports, etc. I would like to be able to use the 103D's 4K conversion and Darbee to my new 4K OLED.

First, is this possible?
If so, what type of splitter should I use??

Thanks,
Tom

Get an active switcher that has a power supply and external remote. A cable splitter may induce HDCP and other errors, so they will likely not work reliably for a device that will have HDCP enabled for premium content.

I have a question and not sure how to set my player. I have a few 4K mastered blu ray movies. They are using expanded color. On the case it says *Expanded color requires xvYCC compatible TV and Blu Ray player" Does that mean I should set the 103D to 30 or 36 bit deep color?

No, those are separate issues:

  • Mastered in 4k is just a standard Blu-ray, has been happening for years
  • xvYCC is a Sony feature, a temporary stopgap before the new color space on UHD discs; OPPO doesn't support it
  • Deep color means interpolating from 8 bits to a wider value; it depends on what the display likes and is probably of limited use

Or if the hopper has component, use that.
