Just as an alternate suggestion, be aware that the Denon has picture control adjustments which are input specific. So for example what you can do is calibrate your TV for your "reference" input as a baseline (assume that would be your oppo) and disable the additional video processing for that input in the receiver, and then make adjustments relative to that baseline for the uverse input. This would allow you to have different picture calibration settings for the two inputs with one HDMI connection to the TV.

This might be an alternative for some users, but the picture controls on the Denon are nowhere near as comprehensive as those on the display itself.

Bat pig/AustinJerry,

Thanks for the input, but could you answer the question? If you don't know, no problem. I appreciated that you answered already.

What question is unanswered? Is the way you are proposing the only way to accomplish your objective? Yes, as far as I know. Are there any differences between Monitor1 and Monitor2? Already answered, no difference that I am aware of.

The manual only mentions that ARC is supported on MONITOR1 but not MONITOR2. I see no other difference.

It does sound like you could select either of those at the TV and get what you want. There is a note on p.190 of the manual indicating that the AVR will try to negotiate a common resolution supported by both devices that are connected. As long as the input at the TV that is NOT selected reports the same capabilities as the one that is in use or deactivates completely it should be fine.

Oops, I was looking at the 5200 manual. Details about the two outputs on the 4520 are on p.130 of its manual. Seems like the same applies but you might want to test it at a dealer if possible, or see if you can work something out where you can bring home a floor model to try before you commit.
