Ah, OK. I think they should be backwards compatible, don't know for sure. But another member has stated his Onkyo (not my model) was doing the same thing , i.e. playing only fronts with quad from a physical player, but Onkyo fixed his with a firmware update. Regardless of why the 103 works, the 80 doesn't and I THINK it's the Onkyo. Next time I talk to Oppo service I'll see what they think....they have my 970HD for repairs now, maybe I'll have to send my 80....hope not though! Maybe it's just me wishing for a quick fix like a firmware update for the Onkyo.He is saying that since the 80 is built with an older HDMI spec than the 103, it may do something different than what the new AVR is expecting. The older AVRs likely had older HDMI specs as well, which is why they worked with the 80.
I thought they were all backward compatible actually.
