ahduck,

^ I can confirm the first half of your find: Front Panel Stop button is not functioning while on Top Menu. Good catch!

I checked that with Pacific Rim, UHD, which is another Warner title.

Which firmware are you running?

Are you cabled single or dual HDMI?

Are you set to Energy Efficient or Network Standby?

Do you have Ethernet, or Wifi enabled, or neither?

Switch to LPCM output and see if the 103 decodes it into LPCM 5.1 as you'd expect. The TrueHD on that disc is 96kHz and your AVR may not accept that as Bitstream, but should as LPCM.

For SACD using DSD direct to the DACs, be aware that Volume control is not available in the 103 or 103D. It IS available when doing that in the 105.

Try setting either Custom > 1080p Auto or Custom > UHD auto. Some discs load 720p previews over the Internet and your display may not like that.

Two players do this for SD-DVD upscaling through your current Lumagen setup? I don't think it's the players.
