I may not understand this but I know several on here will.
The difference between these two is the setting I put on the OPPO 205. The usual is USB Audio In which gives me a black tv screen with simple file info. I don’t normally have tv on.
Then the first picture happens when I select Blu-Ray Player. I also am told by Roon to change my zone. When I do, I see a completely different screen. A photograph of the album, the track playing, the time.
The OPPO does have an ethernet connected.
This is what I don’t understand: the first photo mentions nothing about the Micro Rendu. The USB In comes from the MR. Is it somehow bypassing it? If it is somehow using the HDMI route to the sound output, I don’t understand how it can. There are only 2 RCA cables connecting the OPPO to the amp. The AVR is not on
