I was doing this cause I thought I would get some extra bang out of the video processing capabilities of the Oppo unit (Darbee). The Marantz is set to HDMI pass-through in terms of video processing (It still obviously outputs all the audio). Any ideas?
At first glance it looks like video games seem a bit laggy and maybe the voices are a little off. Do you think its cause I'm going Marantz -> Oppo -> TV? Am I just getting too fancy here?
Welcome to AVS!
Wiring setup is wrong.
HDMI output from Marantz ---> TV (Samsung F8500)
From Oppo 103D HDMI output ---> HDMI input to Marantz SR7009
Connect your cable box HDMI output ---> to one of Oppo's 103D HDMI input.
On the 103D, select output to 1080p so you get the up-scaling features from Oppo. Set the Darbee setting to what's pleasing to the eye. On the Marantz SR7009 select pass through of the video.
The 103D has the Netflix app, so you don't need to do anything special. If you want more, get the Roku stick and plug it into the other HDMI input of the 103D.
To control all your devices with a single push of a button, get a universal remote such as the Logitech 650.
