I don't own a tablet, and I really only need a display so I can navigate through Rhapsody whenever I want to stream music. Don't really need a display for any other music (CDs, DVDs, etc.) but I suppose I'd also need it to see the files when playing FLACs on the Oppo from a thumb drive. It's just that I don't want to shell out a few hundred bucks for a small flat screen TV when I have this nice monitor laying around.
You can pick up a 8" tablet for $50, and download the apps for your Oppo, and most likely your AVR. If the Oppo sees your music it will display the songs on the app or your screen as I recall.

Rhapsody app..

.... has anyone tried this - connecting a computer monitor to your AVR - and did it work?
I used a computer monitor (HP LP247w) connected to a Denon AVR 2310 receiver for a while. The source was a Cambridge Audio 650BD universal player (pretty similar to Oppo BPD-83). In conclusion, that setup worked properly.

Re: Using a Computer Monitor with an AVR

Something like this may work, pretty cheap if it doesn't.

From the sound of this article, the Display Port could be your best option.

Q. Does DisplayPort include content protection capability?
