Question was whether anyone had successfully set up their Harmony Remote to control the Oppo as a processor (say with Sky feeding in via HDMI)? Any tricks or techniques. I found the Oppo would not switch inputs properly when pushing the "Activity" button and especially so if there was a disc in the machine from start-up (i.e. Activity = "Watch Sky") it would just start playing the disc.
I use my 105 to upscale Sky via the rear HDMI input. When setting up my Harmony One, I included the Oppo command for 'input', left a few ms gap and then '3' (HDMI Back). This automatically switches the Oppo to the correct input on start-up.
