Initially I had output resolution as such:
1080p = Auto
180p24 = Auto
I assumed BD movies would default to 1080p24 when capable.
When I select "Display" button, the parameters are listed (frame rate 23.97Hz, etc.,...), however don't see actual resolution setting value (1080p)? Or am I missing it? Or does it assume the display is outputting 1080p?
Now I've re-set video output resolution as such:
1080p = (ON)
1080p24 = (ON)
What's shown on the Oppo's on-screen display is the stats of the content being read off the disc -- not what's being sent out on the HDMI cable.
The correct Oppo output settings for you to use are:
Resolution = 1080p (not Auto or Source Direct)
1080p/24 = Auto (not ON)
3D Mode = Auto (not ON)
HDMI Color Space = best to use an explicit choice rather than Auto, you'll need to experiment. Start with YCbCr 4:4:4
HDMI Deep Color = you'll need to experiment. Start with 36 bit
The "ON" settings force /24 or 3D output (when that's what's actually in the content) even if the display says it can't accept that during the HDMI handshake. It's for oddball displays that don't do the handshake correctly. AUTO for those two polls the display and will only send /24 or 3D if that is in the content *AND* the display says it can accept that.
It's also best to make an explicit choice for HDMI Audio (LPCM or Bitstream) rather than using Auto. Start with LPCM. If you use LPCM, then you can also leave Secondary Audio ON. If you use Bitstream, turn Secondary Audio OFF except when you decide you want to play a Blu-ray disc feature (usually a Picture-in-Picture Commentary track) that requires it.
To see what's actually getting to your display you need to look for some sort of Info display on the TV itself.
Note that if your video is going through an AVR on the way to the display, the capabilities and settings of the AVR also play a role in what gets to the TV.
