Reset my Oppo as suggested...turned off...disconnected power for a minute or two. Turned back on and re-entered settings. Turned off for more than 10 seconds and then turned on my Oppo.
Put in an SACD and it displays as playing 5.1 but the AVR is only receiving stereo.
STOP and EJECT disc...put it back in and it plays MCH. Played first disc for a couple of minutes and ejected this and tried a different disc immediately after it and it played in MCH.
Bit weird this but there is obviously a quite simple work around.
Flagged this to Oppo.
They asked for details of my AVR (Denon AVR 3808) and suggested I try using HDMI 1 direct to AVR. Tried that and the problem persists.
Of course, I did a little more testing on this (with HDMI 1 direct to receiver).
If I insert SACD it plays in stereo. Eject disc and then put it back in and it plays in MCH.
If I turn on the player, play flac in stereo from either attached storage (eSATA) or from NAS then insert SACD it plays in MCH.
If I turn on the Oppo and play a ripped movie from attached storage then insert SACD it plays in MCH. This movie was played from USB HDD and is an old HD DVD that I've ripped to a Bluray format. Sound track is MCH PCM.
If I turn on the Oppo and play an m2ts file form my NAS, then insert SACD it only plays in stereo. This is a movie ripped form BD and sound track is DTS MA.
Got me flummoxed but Oppo is on the case.
