It's not over pricing or price gouging, it's just supply and demand. Most of these titles are no longer being produced, and a lot of people want them. That equals 'high' prices. 
Yes, that should definitely work, call oppo.
yes as i said you won't find all the 'modern' stuff in 5.1 hi def, the link above was just a place to get 5.1 files so you can test your setup with them. search amazon for SACD or DVD audio discs, and you'll see whats available.

no, i haven't had any such problem with my vsx53 + w7000 projector via a 25ft HDMI cable. what brand/type cable are you using? I got this one after reading many reviews:   http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EZTUMU/ref=pe_175190_21431760_M3T1_ST1_dp_1
