Thanks again Bob. Trying to eliminate things to work on. I am using the unbalanced six analog outs on the Oppo to a five channel amp and HDMI Out audio on Oppo is turned off. The Monitor has no speakers, amps, or tuner, strictly a video monitor--so, settings on the monitor as well as the HDMI cable connecting it to the Oppo can be ruled out as the problem or is that a bad assumption. The amp and RCA cables (Blue Jean) can also be ruled out, correct. All that is left are the Oppo and its settings, I have had no problems with the Oppo and will assume it is fine, that leaves the Oppo settings, which I assume is what you are referencing need to be optimized, nothing is set to "auto", and, of course the Dish DVR and its settings which are precious few. Guess I will go back to pulling my hair out, again, precious few. Really do appreciate your help.
