To simplify things, what happens if you leave the Oppo off? Does everything work perfectly? What about NOT using ARC?
I googled your DSP and saw this: "Rotel doesn't specify if the RSP-1582 supports full 18.2 Gbps HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 but we're guessing it doesn't since the silicon is just now becoming available meaning we probably won't see such products surface till the end of 2015 the earliest." Any chance your Oppo's video output is set to Auto? When firing up the Oppo before your Rotel, it might be detecting that your shiny new TV is capable of more than what your DSP can handle. Try temporarily forcing the Oppo to output 1080p only and see what happens. Also connect the Oppo to the Rotel, not to the TV... your TV and Oppo supports newer video formats than what your Rotel can handle (like [email protected]
I had a similar issue to yours, but my issue was the old TV. My Oppo would see my shiny new Marantz and output a signal my old TV could not handle -- so, sound but no picture. Once I "dumbed down" the Oppo, it worked perfectly.
Sorry, I completely overlooked your message.
Here are my answers to your questions.
- I am using ARC but turning on TV does not turn on Rotel processor for me. I am not sure if I need to change the setting on the TV or the Rotel. And yes, I do turn things manually. I was going to use macro in a Logitech remote but since I have been having this handshake issue, it sounded like a bad idea. My usual manual sequence is to put in a disc in Oppo and then turn on Rotel and then the TV. But that's most of the time a hit or miss.
More hit than miss though.
- I did not understand your question of leaving Oppo turned off. Then I would not have a source to get video or audio from, right?
- Here are my Oppo video settings:
Dolby Vision: Auto
Output Resolution: Source Direct
Custom Resolution: UHD Auto
Someone suggested I need to have HDMI CEC: on in Device Setup. So that's also on.
- I changed the Custom Resolution to 1080P in my Oppo. That also changed the HDR to Custom from Auto. With this setting, I turned on my devices or units in a different sequences and the issue exists; video but no audio.
Then I tried switching Custom Resolution to UHD Auto from 1080P and I get this message from Oppo, "The connected HDMI device does not support 4kx2k input signal". What the heck does that mean when Rotel has a 4k pass through? Is this because I am using a non Certified High Speed HDMI (AQ Carbon) or is that because Rotel does not have the necessary HDR hardware needed?
To confirm, I switched AQ HDMI to Oppo supplied certified HDMI and tried switching Custom Resolution to UHD Auto from 1080P and I do no get the same message. When I switch the cable back to AQ Carbon from Oppo cable again and repeat the same action, this time I do not get the message. So may be it was a one time glitch? I don't know.
Anyways, I don't know if this tells you anything, but I feel lost again.
