I have just purchased my Oppo 203 and from prior browsing on this thread, I know that this has been mentioned before but I have not seen any solution or recent discussion.
When I use the Analogue out with RCA leads for Stereo listening of CD's to make full use of the Oppo's DAC I get audio drop-outs during playback, which I see is caused by the HDMI handshaking going on in background (in fact if I turn on the TV during playback it is very bad until the TV is sync'd and I see the Oppo screen). I have already purchased the HDMI CEC blocking adapter (one on the Oppo HDMI to TV and one on TV to AVR) as Sony Bravia does not have any way to turn off CEC. But unless the TV is on, this still happens. I also tried using Pure Audio to blank the TV screen - is this the only way?
Does anyone know if Oppo are working on a solution or is this just accepted - I paid extra for the Oppo DAC and would like to use it as such?
