I posted the below in the 850C thread, but there was little or not help there.
First my components: 850C, DirecTV, PS3(my former blu-ray player, still my game console), a shinny new Oppo UDP-203, and an aging but okay Onkyo SR705(it has HDMI 1.4 so Dolby TrueHD). New MediaBridge HDMI cables everywhere.
The Oppo has two outs, a main for video that goes directly to the TV on HDMI 1, and an audio only to the SR705. My cable box (DirecTV) goes directly to the 705. The output from 705 goes to the 850C on HDMI 3. All receiver assignments checked and double checked.
Okay figure this out.
I have the cable box running and a 4k Blu-ray in the Oppo. I go to HDMI 3 on TV and have the receiver set to Cab/Sat, no problem. I switch receiver to DVD and I hear the sound track from the Oppo as I should. As soon as I switch the 850C to HDMI 1 I get the picture as I should but the sound goes away! If I pull the HDMI cable from the 850C, HDMI 3 that is from receiver I get sound back. If both HDMI cables are installed, 1 and 3. I cannot get sound from the Oppo. I worked on it for three hours checking assignments and cables and nothing I could do would fix it.
Everything works great except when I want to hear the sound track from the Oppo I have pull a cable from the TV that should have no effect. I can have the cable box and the PS3 powered down and still no sound from the Oppo until I pull the main video output of the Onkyo that goes into HDMI 3 on the TV.
