I must say how impressed I am with the Oppo. My first impression was the first class packaging, and, the cool carrying bag/cover. The Oppo itself is absolutely gorgeous. The operation and user interface is second to none. The performance had me watching all the blu-rays I could get my hands on today!
I have a question though...
My Lexicon is non-HDMI. I have a single HDMI cable ran to my projector. I am using the HDMI 1 out of the Oppo directly to my projector. I would still like to keep the PS3 in my system for my sons as they use it for gaming. I connected the PS3 HDMI out to the HDMI in on the back of the Oppo with the intention to use the Oppo as a switcher; toggling between the Oppo and the PS3 to my projector via my single HDMI cable. Is this OK?
The connection seemed to work perfectly as the PS3 home screen appeared. However, when my son put in a PS3 game disc, the projector went to a blank screen with a "no video signal" notation. It also froze-up the Oppo causing me to have to power off/on to un-freeze the Oppo.
Out of curiosity I then tried the Netflix interface on the PS3, again feeding the HDMI input on the rear of the Oppo, and it worked perfectly. I had perfect video and audio with no blank screens and no locking-up of the Oppo.
Why am I unable to play a PS3 game disc, but, able to use the PS3 netflix interface? Is there a video setting I need to change, or, is playing a game in this configuration not possible?
Thanks for any help. I searched this thread, but, was unable to find an answer.
