I can only thik that the source input setting for the cd is set to something other than CD, like the projector/TV.

Can you describe how you have everything connected? It sounds like you're running HDMI from the player to the TV and then HDMI from the TV to the receiver. If so, of course you're going to have to have the TV on to listen to a disc in the player.

I think Ken might have it. If only the HDMI is being used for sourceing to the amp then the TV/Projector must be on or at least the receiver has to be in that mode unless, in the settings screen you can set the input source for the cd as HDMI as well, this should allow you to not have the projector on. I would just run RCA's from the player up to the receiver and it solves the problem.

I would connect everything up to the denon. Then run one cable from the denon to your tv.... unless that is what you are already doing.

the oppo goes to the denon receiver via hdmi and hdmi to the projector, i suppose the easy way now is to find that setting.
but then everytime i watch a dvd i change it then i have to change again for the cd because i don't want to waste the hours on the projector.

Could it be that you have set power control options on the HDMI link? (it is possible to use the HDMI link like a 12V trigger) If that is on, it could make everything "shut off" when you turn the projector off.
