I replaced my non-HDMI TV with a Panasonic 3D TV. From a PS3, I used HDMI directly to the TV and an optical cable to the 2807. I don't used HDMI on the 2807.

I was thinking of replacing the PS3 with a Blu ray player (like Oppo BDP-103) with dual HDMI output. If I configure the Oppo HDMI as Split A/V where HDMI 1 goes to the TV for video, and HDMI 2 goes to HDMI input on the Denon 2807 for audio (having a dummy video stream), do I still need to connect an HDMI cable from the 2807 HDMI out to the TV in order to get sound? Currently, I only use component connection from 2807 to TV for Menu Setup.

I want to use HDMI audio so I can get lossless High Definition audio from the blu ray.

I don't like to use analog connections from the Oppo to the ext. in of the 2807 if it disables Audyssey.

I really like the Denon 2807, and I don't intend to replace it soon.

Generally no, as you're not passing any video to the TV from the AVR; however, in some instances the HDMI connection to the TV is required to complete the HDMI handshake and allow audio to play from the AVR. If this occurs, you can generally resolve it by connecting an HDMI switch/splitter or HDMI Detective to the AVR's HDMI monitor output (although may need to pass video through it to the TV one time so the TV's EDID information is passed to the splitter/switch or HDMI Detective).

Just remember you need to set your Oppo to send lossless multichannel PCM to the AVR-2807 because the receiver does not decode TrueHD and DTS-MA. The 2807 uses HDMI 1.2 so you cannot bitstream TrueHD and DTS-MA. I have that receiver at my father's house. A little short on HDMI inputs with only 2 but otherwise a solid and powerful receiver.

the remote is funky too but once you figure it out you're okay.

Thanks jdsmoothie and afrogt for your reply.

My Panasonic TV and this receiver have this HDMI issue that freezes this receiver so connecting an HDMI from the 2807 to the TV might be problematic. Others have also reported this issue on this thread.

Should I consider using the Oppo BDP-103 7.1 analog outputs to the ext. in of the 2807. Would I get better sound even without Audyssey.

Or should I consider the Oppo BDP-105D instead and use the 7.1 analog output for its audiophile Sable DAC. Would the Oppo BDP-105D be overkill for this receiver.

Using the EXT IN inputs, you disable Audyssey and would be using the DAC in the respective Oppo model. As most Oppo owners likely prefer using HDMI (for Audyssey), you would be better served upgrading to a more current AVR rather than going from the Oppo 103D --> 105D.
