I'd recommend you keep it simple and continue to use HDMI audio. Of course you can hook up the Analog as well and compare for yourself -- both are live at the same time. Just make sure you adjust...

I would think the Monoprice unit should work. There's nothing unusual about the rear IR input on the 103. Check that you have it plugged in properly and fully.

OPPO sells an IR sensor as well:

ARC never sets speakers LARGE on its own. In the Targets window of the ARC setup application you can force ARC to treat speakers as Full Range, which means no Crossover processing.
