I recently purchased an OPPO BDP-95 to replace my Sony Blu-Ray due to the Sony not having 3D capability (and I wanted a nice universal player that sounded good). Since my AVR (Denon AVR 4310 CI) only has 1.3 HDMI ports, it does not support 3D.
I currently have the HDMI out on my Denon plugged into HDMI port 1 of the TV. My plan was to run the video from the OPPO directly to HDMI port 2 on my TV and run the 7.1 analog cables to the EXT in on my Denon for the sound (I specifically want this setup so I can utilize the internal DAC of the OPPO). I adjusted the settings in the OPPO to send video only through HDMI 1 and Audio via 7.1 analog to the Denon. The problem I run into, is when I play a Blu-Ray (through HDMI port 2 on TV) I only get a picture but no sound. When I switch to HDMI port 1 of the TV I get the Denon main screen with the sound from the Blu-Ray. I have messed with most settings on the Denon but for the life of me cannot get it to send sound to the speakers when my TV is using HDMI port 2. I can't find any sort of bypass or anything. Does anyone have any advice or idea of what I?m doing wrong? I have been messing with this for 4 days now and am about to swap out the 4310 with something else that is 3D capable (this would be a last resort because the Denon sounds fantastic). Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.
