RE: My Oppo 105 has stoped out putting to my sub...

Well, your way is exactly how I have had to go now. I am using a McIntosh c48, and usually use the second set of output to the sub, just for 2.1 listening. For HT I would turn off that second output as the sub output from the Oppo feeds directly to the sub on separate inputs.

It was working fine until the last couple movies I noticed things sounded kind of light in the bass. So I looked and noticed the sub light was not turning green in the auto mode. I then checked all cables, and did the tone test in the Oppo setup to confirm the problem.

I have since tried the setup you describe and found it works well, although I did not change the setting in the Oppo to no sub, I have the fronts as large but never thought the Oppo sent so much bass to the fronts when you select yes for a sub. So I guess I could continue to use it this way, but I would still like to fix it.

Now that I am thinking about it, I wonder if my 2.1 setup been back feeding into the Oppo and fried the Oppo output ?? I have had the Oppo for years and the sub was just for HT strictly. I just recently bought a new sub with balanced and unbalanced inputs and decided to go 2.1 also. Although the Oppo is always off when I play 2.1
The sub is a HSU ULS 15 mk2, I would have to check with them if it's posible for the balanced input to feed back through the unbalanced one.

Well thanks for your thoughts.
