The Oppo to the Rotel works fine with the analog inputs but I want to use HDMI for audio to have the Rotel do all the processing. I've tried 3 different HDMI cables and reversed direction on one - all without success. Two of the cables were HDMI v1.3b and one was 1.1. I also tried a Toshiba HD-XA2 and had the same results as the Oppo.
Also, I've read the B&W FAQs for setup, again without success. The Oppo and Toshiba had hdmi audio selected and secondary audio was set to off.
The set-top box works fine, but I have it connected with HDMI for video only, audio is via coax. The equipment path for blu-ray is Oppo 83 to RSP-1570 to Panasonic TH-PF9UK 1080 display. I've read the Rotel manual multiple times, searched extensively on the Internet forums, and am familiar with Rotel processors through 12 year ownership of the RSP-1066.
I remember reading that someone had a similar problem but they never posted their solution and now I can't remember which forum I was in at the time.
Any ideas? Thanks very much!
Did you upgrade Rotel to newest firmwares?
It has like 4 or so different sections that need to be updated.
From video, to audio, to main firmware etc.
Do a Google search for Rotel firmware and you will find link that lets you choose your model and shows all the different firmwares.
You can even pass 3d with newest video firmware...
Note: Windows 64 bit versions don't seem to play nice with some of the update programs.
Unless they have been updated like for the two-1572.
