Thanks for your help regarding the Harmony 900. Here is my scenario:
Right now, I have both HDMI outputs of the Oppo 105 connected to the 8801. HDMI 1 out of the 105 goes to the Blu-ray input which I use to watch movies (taking advantage of Audyssey). HDMI 2 goes to the DVD input, but with 7.1 Analog inputs selected for Audio, which I use to listen to DVD-A's and SACD's, taking advantage of the DACs in the Oppo.
This necessitates having the Oppo 105 in DUAL HDMI mode, which diminishes both picture and sound quality (albeit slightly), and is causing handshake issues.
Several members here have suggested just using one input on the 8801 (in other words, everything going in to the Blu-ray input), and getting a Harmony remote so I can program it to "Watch a movie", selecting the Blu-ray input with HDMI audio, and "Listen to BDP", telling it to select Blu-ray input, 7.1 Analog audio, and put it in Pure Direct mode.
I purchased a Harmony 900, and so far so good. The only problem is, I can't figure out how to tell it to change the Audio Input from HDMI to Analog. Member RichB sent me those codes, and suggested I send them to Logitech:
INPUT MODE:AUTO 16 01 15
INPUT MODE:HDMI 16 01 16
INPUT MODE:DIGITAL 16 01 17
INPUT MODE:ANALOG 16 01 18
I've done so this morning, and I'll keep everyone posted as to what they say. In the meantime, if anyone has another suggestion, I'd love to hear it.
