This is something that we are currently investigating to resolve through a future firmware release, but the only solution at this point is to turn off the player if the HDMI output does not resume when you have stopped Roon playback.
Thanks for the answer. Of courseI I also use ethernet and can stream to a lot of devices, either via Roon (Raat) or via UPnP (Audirvana). But I have yet to get any devise to stream multichannel through Roon (or Audirvana) except through HDMI. I still have only a Oppo 105D but I would happily upgrade to 203/205 if that means that I can can stream multichannel via Roon (over Raat) or via Audirvana (over UPnP). But my understanding is that this is not possible.
Well, a PS Audio DirectSteam. I found I was only using the Ethernet DAC in the Oppo to play my already ripped CDs and DVD/Bluray. I really didn’t need a disc spinner but I was compelled by the versatility of the Oppo enough to try it for a few months.
I was disappointed in the preamp functions though I recognize they are a bonus being there at all.
Mostly the combination of Roon and HDMI conflict broke the camels back and I sold it for a small rental fee.
Yeah, definitely a piece to ‘grow’ other components around. I started with an eval of the Jr. listened for long enough to know I felt sure it had stabilized. It changed a bunch throughout the first ~200 hours. I liked the Jr. so much, I got the Sr. for not much more from Upscale along with the BridgeII.
Now I’m replacing my S300 with the M700 monos, and probably won’t stop until I replace the Stellar GCD with a BHK Pre. Phew, then I’ll enjoy for many years before beginning all over again.
Just to complete the setup; I split listening between Senn HD580 and HD6XX (arriving next week from Massdrop) and Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2 (no kids but two dogs, both puppies, they limit the speaker time but 6 months from now they’ll be old enough)
Since the Oppo UDP-205 is very flexible in its connection options, a lot of the multi-channel limitations stated on this thread are ambiguous and I think a summery would help future buyers (I know the latest from Oppo leaving audio but still the UDP-205 will be available for some time).
This is what I’ve gathered, correct me if I’m wrong:
PC --> HDMI --> UDP-205 --> Analog out: 7.1 Supported
PC with Roon --> HDMI --> UDP-205 --> Analog out: 7.1 Supported
PC --> HDMI --> UDP-205 --> HDMI Out: 2.0 Supported
Roon Core --> Ethernet (RAAT) --> UDP-205 --> Analog out: 2.0 Supported
Roon Core --> Ethernet (RAAT) --> UDP-205 --> HDMI Out: 2.0 Supported
PC --> USB --> UDP-205 --> Analog Out: 2.0 Supported
Ethernet (DNLA) --> Analog Out: 7.1 Supported
Ethernet (DNLA) --> HDMI Out: 7.1 Supported
Disc Player --> Analog Out: 7.1 Supported
Disc Player --> HDMI Out: 7.1 Supported
I specifically listed - PC with Roon --> HDMI --> UDP-205 --> Analog out: 7.1 Supported
…because I’ve seen posts here stating that “HDMI with Roon only supports 2ch”, and I believe they were referring to using UDP’s HDMI Out, not connecting a PC with Roon to the UDP-205 over HDMI In (which should support multi-channel correctly, unless I’m missing something very odd).
