My brain hurts.
I have the same problem with DVDs. The only way it will hold my spot and resume is if I hit stop when it is playing. If I pause and then turn off or switch to another input, it restarts the DVD.
I have a 2.1 set up. I asked and was told to hook the sub woofer to the multichannel rca out and use the dedicated fl/fr outputs, not the multichannel outputs, with stereo downmix (speakers set to small and subwoofer on). Works perfectly. My understanding, and I could be wrong, is the FL/FR downmix setting is for sending the surround information to an amp or other processor for decoding. For this to work you would need to connect to the FL/FR multichannel outputs, not the dedicated outputs.
Question: Have you personally noticed any harshness in the high end? I find this particularly noticeable with rock music (cymbals, snare drum etc) And if so, did it improve with time? Has anyone else experienced this with the Oppo 105? I'm beginning to wonder if I have a faulty unit.
My question to Oppo:
The STEREO AUDIO OUT terminals automatically down-mix the multi-channel audio source into the stereo signals. However, STEREO AUDIO OUT will NOT be affected by the “Down mix” modes and other speaker settings in the Audio Processing of Setup Menu (described on page 70).
I'm using RCA connectors to left and right self powered speakers and a self powered sub woofer (no amplifier or preamp.) Do I use the dedicated stereo outputs for the speakers and the sub woofer out in the 7.1 outs or do I use all 7.1 outs? Do I use downmix stereo or downmix FT/LT?
You will want to connect to the dedicated stereo outputs and the Subwoofer output.
Under Audio Processing set Speaker Configuration to Down-mixed Stereo.
Under Speaker Configuration change speakers to SMALL and Subwoofer to ON.
Your player will not give you full band to the main speakers while giving you redirected bass and LFE to your subwoofer.
