anyone ever get an oppo-bdp-93 to make sound on an HT3550 over HDMI? video works fine including 3D.
i factory reset both, i've confirmed that both work with other devices, i've tried short copper cables cables active copper cables and active optical cables, i've reduced video resolution and color bit depth, LPCM vs bitstream, audio bit rate, anything i could find in any menu. i've tried all permutations of the two hdmi ports on the player vs two hdmi ports on display. looks like a straight bug.
yes i could probably bypass the HDMI connection and get it to work over mini stereo or optical SPDIF. but there's something annoying about this simple feature not working.
also in response to a couple issues that came up in recent posts, it's entirely plausible that optical HDMI cables can suddenly stop working, not least because they do contain active circuitry (and miniaturized circuitry at that) that can fail for various reasons.
and as for 3d, DLP link generally is excellent, possibly unmatched, when it comes to defeating crosstalk. if your LG has this completely solved then great! we can talk about how comfortable the glasses are vs horizontal resolution vs whatever. but in general it's just hard to beat DLP for 3D..
