Basically every time I cold-start my system. I was HDMI handshake issues with the .21 FW on Linker and 6/6/2017 FW on the Oppo. With that combination I was unable to get HDMI sync on the first attempt of starting up my equipment.
Startup procedure is the following: RS600 -> x4200 -> Oppo -> HTPC
If I leave the AVR input on Oppo, I get the Oppo menu (4k60) no problems. When I start an UHD movie, I get nothing ... no sound ... no video. Sometimes I'll get to see the custom 'disc loading' screen, but afterward I just get a black screen. Interestingly enough, my projector will detect a 4k signal, but the screen remains black and audio is non existant. The fix was to reseat all the HDMI inputs between the Oppo and AVR... so reseat connection on Oppo, both connections on Linker (in/out), and reseat connect on AVR. That fixes the issue.
So all of the above happened with FW .21 and Oppo FW 6/6/17 (the FW before that latest available).
I thought that my issues were related to not having the latest FW. So I updated the FW to .23 and the latest 6/26/17 Oppo FW.
With the new FWs, I power up the components in the same order and, again, the Oppo menu is displayed and my RS600 reports a 4k60 signal (which is no problem with my Celerity cable). ALSO, the Oppo is set to Auto everything in settings.
Sync times are a little longer than I'm used to, but I was encouraged when I could get the video to show up every time. But no audio. My old tricks of flipping over to the HTPC AVR input and back to the Oppo didn't work.
In fact, this all happened when I had a friend drop in and tried to demo the system. No audio on the Oppo, but when I flip to HTPC everything works perfectly.
Before I flipped back to the Oppo input on the AVR, I restarted the Oppo (again, that would have fixed the no-audio issue in the past), but alas -- my embarrassing demo continued as I could not get audio when trying to play Fifth Element UHD. I did not try other movies or go any further with troubleshooting because, as I said, I had company.
I never got audio to work with the latest FW combos because I had guests to entertain. I'm guessing if I reseat all the connection (again) audio might work. However, I'm exhausted from troubleshooting this component and just want it to work at this point.
SO what have you got in terms of a fix because I'm going on 6 months with this product and it STILL does not work as advertised -- bug free. I have the same hardware equipment as
, I just want this product to work as described or give me an exchange or a return. But I really don't want to put more hours on my projector lamp for this.
