OK, here's another issue with my 8801 (or maybe my Oppo?). When I set my Oppo 105 to Split A/V, so that HDMI 1 out goes to one input (HDMI 3 on the 8801, which defaults to the BluRay button on the remote) and and HDMI 2 out goes to HDMI 6 (AUX 2 on the remote), I don't get any audio when I select the assigned BluRay input. Is there some way to have both HDMI inputs active at the same time? How else would one get both image and sound using the Split option? I get an image and sound only when I use AUX 2, but then I think I'm not getting the optimized video image since uses the Oppo's HMDI 2 output). I can only get an image with the BluRay input if I use the DUAL video setting on the Oppo, but then the 8801 turns DSD audio from SACDs to PCM! Help!!! (Most of the time I use the analog 7 ch-in for SACDs, but I'd like the option of DSD on occasion.)
Obviously, I hope someone who has both an Oppo 105 (or any Oppo model that allows Split/Dual HDMI outputs) and a Marantz 8801 replies!
