I realize that no OSD on #2 is normal.Interesting. Keep in mind no OSD on Output 2 is normal.
I was doing tests with an older 983 Oppo player. Trying to be as basic as possible.
While testing I noticed sometimes an input or an output would work intermittently. I would swap cables out. Sometimes they would work and sometimes not. Anthem has a mind of it's own. After the firmware upgrade though, nothing works. Maybe the Anthem just got worse with use?
