Not hooking in to a/v receiver yet trying satellite to oppo to tv
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago

There is no benefit to running the satellite through the oppo in this situation, you would really only use this if you were using the oppo to decode surround signals and route an analog audio signal to a non digital receiver that used the ext inputs.

If you aren't using a receiver, then there is no need to use the oppo like this, just use a separate hdmi from your satellite to the tv.
