I have a non 3D receiver (Onkyo SR674) and an Infocus IN72 projector (should get my new Epson 5020 next month), so cabled the Oppo HDMI out directly to the projector and then took my receiver HDMI out to the Oppo back HDMI in port. This way I can still watch my movies from my PC media player and legacy UK DVD player through the receiver. I also needed the Oppo for its 7.1 RCA out as the Onkyo SR674 needs that to drive my 7.1 speakers and will not do it correctly if using digital optic out of the Blu-ray. Longer term my plan was to have the receiver connected to one of the two HDMI ports on the projector and put the Oppo on the second HDMI using the Epson.
My question would be, is this the right solution and a supported one at that? I am far from being an expert in this area and the fact that you can set-up speakers/picture on the receiver and the Oppo and also do picture adjustment on the projector makes my head hurt…. So I may have got this connectivity logic all messed up!
I would also be very interested in any links or pointers to being able to rip Blu-ray (2D and 3D) for play back on the Oppo. I am old school DVD so I have that sorted but seems like Blu-ray changes everything lol. When I rip my DVD’s to my media server I do it at full quality and want the same from the Blu-ray, not interested in compressing or anything like that which I thought was the ISO type of rip but not sure how to use that with the Oppo or if I should even try.
Thanks for any help!
