My Tivo and Directv go thru the 103D. I use a Harmony One to turn everything off and on.
The 103D is easy, once everything boots, you have the Harmony send the command to make the Oppo choose input back or front. It takes about 14 seconds on my program, but my wife is used to that. Volume is still controlled by the AVR and she uses the Harmony for everything. Basically once the 103D turns on and is told an input, you dont have to tell it anything else.
Ditto - using Cablevison into 103D out to receiver - you can set the 103D to "last Input" and will stay @ HDMI rear.
