I have HDMI1 connected directly to an input on the TV and HDMI2 going to my Denon AVP-A1HDCI. As part of my testing procedure, I end up using both outputs from the player and don't recall any handshaking issues at all so far. I've got the player set to output 1080p, 24Hz is set to off, and deep color is off.
Do/did you have the player connected directly to the TV or do you have an AVR between them? If so, what model of AVR?
My suggestion is that if the features of the OPPO were what you were looking for, you should consider giving another sample of the player a try. If you still have problems, post your exact settings here and or contact OPPO support for assistance.
What model Mitsubishi TV are you using? Unless it's their very first DLP RPTV, I don't recall any of their sets having HDMI inputs and having a native resolution of 1080i. As I wrote above, I was using a 65" Mits DLP and now an 82" Mits DLP and the picture definitely isn't gritty or grainy. The picture quality is excellent.
I have the Pioneer Elite VSX-30 1.4. And I was going through that...from player to AV receiver then to TV, all HDMI. The 93 would go to black or freeze a screen shot. I would have to reboot the 93 or put into HDMI 2 to see a picture again. The last time it froze the screen and none of the solutions worked, even changing the DVD I still have the others screen shot.
Both the player and the TV have CES turned off. I did not try going direct to the TV because I didn't to loose the sound system, I guess I could have use HDMI 2 for sound but after talking to the same fellow at Tech support with not really solution other than download the latest firmware, which we did... I gave up.
I had no problems with my 2 other Blu-ray Sony players and this TV.
It was getting more complicated that it needed to be for me to have faith in this player. I packed it up and sent it back to Amazon disappointed.
Not sure what player I will buy since I will be selling my Sony ES BDP-S2000ES Blu-ray player, which has a gorgeous picture, but not 3D.
Having to call Oppo twice in the first 1/2 hour of setup was not a good sign to me, I could understand it had it been a cheapo Samsung but not the Oppo. It could have been the TV Mits 82828 but the 2 were not going to be happy with each other.
