Reporting the problem to OPPO Digital customer service is another option.
The lip synch issue appears to be on the bpd105 side. I could not do a direct feed test as my plasma planel is the panasonic pro without speakers. Oppo should correct this within the next 2-3weeks.What a service they offer, absolutely amazing.. maybee epvision should listen a bit
The only main advantage of using an OPPO BDP-103/105 as a HDMI switching device is if the HDMI tuner offers a native source direct mode. Since the PHD-VRX does not offer a native source direct mode and instead it sends 1080P to the OPPO HDMI input, this means the OPPO player video processor will not upscale the signal to 1080P since the signal is already 1080P. Now if you owned a Quad HD display then the OPPO BDP-103/105 would upscale the 1080P signal from the PHD-VRX to Quad HD. If or when a future firmware update to the PHD-VRX offers native source direct feature then you could feed a 480i,720P, or 1080i signal from the PHD-VRX into the reference quality OPPO video processors to offer an excellent 1080P upscale picture quality to your plasma.
My panel is 1366*768p so all depending on the native signal and the performace of my panel it becomes a bit tricky..
Pana usually prefers 720p and will upconvert to 768p
if the native signal is 720p, then stting the phd at 720p works, oppo cleans up the signal and improves the colors (yes I can confirm this) and the oppo is set at 720p
if the native signal is 1080i then the phd downconverts it to 720p, this is where I would rather have a direct feed to oppo at 1080i and let the bdp bring it down to 720p
The dry answer I got from epvision is the source direct at 1080i is not possible as it is a hardware limitation.. and I am not buying this for a second
