Would I have the same issues if I used an HDMI from the Oppo into the AVR versus analog? I'm guessing probably not because the AVR would be doing automatic switching? Can I guess that the extra settings needed to be done on the Oppo are a result of the limitations of the analog inputs into the AVR and not being able to change the sound field on them via the AVR?
Am I expecting too much from the audio analog connections, something they were not meant to do?
Lastly, does anyone have both HDMI and analong connected as inputs to the AVR? Is there any benefit to this at all? I would assume that even if done this way, it would still involve manual changes to the Oppo via the menu depending what output you wanted. Would everything be automatic again if I just used HDMI to the the AVR?
