With such setting no matter what is connected to OPPO shouldn't cause problems.
Do you know people who have experienced similar problems. You wrote " Some people have installed HDMI switchers between the player and TV so they don't have to disconnect the HDMI cable to listen to SACD's '
So there is no other option for me than to buy a good switch???
This has been thoroughly discussed in times past. There are some TVs and related HT products which can be permanently damaged if fed DSD over HDMI. So Oppo has chosen the approach that they will not allow you to risk that. The hardware apparently does not allow a "fail-safe" if DSD is selected and HDMI-audio is on, it will send DSD. So this is an "idiot-proofing" function.
The BDP-93 does not have this limitation. Switching the TV to another input may be a work-around, you can still observe DSD vs PCM on the front panel of the player.
