Bummer. I wasn't sure how the EDID stuff works. I guess I will look into the switches some more. I hardly play games, so I have a feeling I may get the urge to ditch the PS3 in favour of the Oppo 93. My goal is to use HD audio either via multi-channel analog inputs or HDMI. I already have the issue that I can't get 7.1 HD audio over HDMI to play on my Marantz SR 9600 receiver, and so the PS3 is an obstacle that way, but, for 3D movies, be they 5.1/6.1 or 7.1 I figured I could just send HD audio over HDMI and do DPL IIx to get 7.1 if I really wanted 7.1. If the title is 7.1, I suppose I have to allow it to be down-mixed to 5.1 in the PS3 either by way of setup in the S550 or hopefully chosing a 5.1 soundtrack.
If I have an Oppo 93, I can send HDMI 3D video to the Panasonic TV AND multi-channel HDMI audio to my HDMI 1.1 Marantz SR 9600 receiver without issues? The Marantz SR9600 is only HDMI 1.1 but it works for 5.1 LPCM. In using the Oppo 93 I can always rely on the multi-channel analog audio outputs unless the DAC's in the Oppo are greatly inferior to the good one's in the SR 9600, which I doubt. I have been using the DAC's and multi-channel output of my Sony S550, and though I am sure they aren't the best, they don't seem bad. I am sure the DAC's of the Oppo 93 are at least as good or better than the one's in the Sony S550 anyways. One issue would be if I want to perform DPL IIx on a 5.1 signal from a BD. I could try to send 5.1 audio over HDMI from the Oppo 93 to the SR 9600 and do DPL IIx there, or, I wonder if the Oppo 93 can do DPL IIx on a 5.1 HD signal. I know the Marantz can, as I have already tried. I know performing DPL IIx on an HD signal sounds "un-HD" but it's still something I want to be able to do, so at least I can try it and see what it's like.
So I guess if I want to keep using what I've got, I'd need to find a 3D compatible switch AND 3D compatible splitter, or a Matrix switch that allows simutaneous output (although I'll only be using video on one and audio on the other)...and some sort of EDID spoofing. Maybe I should just sell my Sony S550 AND PS3 and put the money towards the Oppo 93 ...
