How are you wired for HDMI? Are you using both outputs of the OPPO (HDMI 1 output and HDMI 2 output) with HDMI 1 to the Display and HDMI 2 to the MRX? In that case do you also have HDMI running...

The 10x players accept 1080p streams. These come in as 1080p/60 (at one of several different bit rates). The 10xD players (the Darbee models) can upscale that to 4K/60 output as YCbCr 4:2:0 color...

^ Are you playing a Blu-ray movie? The Home Menu on the player will still be 1080p, since it is 1080p/60 and the 103 can not output 4K/60.

Set 4K Output AUTO and play a Blu-ray movie and you...
