Mkard,
When I made my last post here a few weeks ago, the 103D and 105D were still available at Oppo. I went to their site today to order one and they are no longer available. I had decided a couple of years ago that was the player I would buy. Now I have to make another choice. Since I just don't have it in me anymore to spend hours on the forums, are there any recommendations to replace my 51D? I have a Pioneer FPJ1 PJ which is based off the Panny RS2.

Another thing, I can't remember how to clear the cache on this thing. I have searched this thread and can't find it either.

You can try eBay and other used equipment websites. Or, if you don't need Darbee, the 203 has replaced the 103, and the 205 has been announced (but not yet available) to replace the 105.

yeah, I was looking at the 203. The other reason I liked the 103D in addition to Darbee was it was capable of streaming via a Roku. The 203 has no streaming but it does have an HDMI, but nowhere in their description does it say it will stream the Roku. I sent an email to Oppo customer service. The ones on ebay have ridiculous prices $700-1,000. I was just looking at the Oppo site a few weeks ago...or at least it seemed that recently and they still had the 103D. I should have just bought it then or the other 100 times I looked at it

The 203 has an HDMI input in the back, so you can attach a Roku streaming stick (or a Google Chromecast).

If that will work, I think I just make the move. When we built our HT 12 yrs ago, I did not install a cable/satellite jack in there. It was for movies only. Now, I'd like to at least stream with the projector and I have Amazon Prime as well as Netflix streaming and Hulu. If a Roku stick will work on the 203, I'm going for it. The BDP-51 still works but with some of the newer disks, it is freezing.

I'm sure it will work. The Roku plugs into the HDMI input in the back of the 203, and comes with its own remote. You'll also need access to a wall outlet (the Roku comes with a USB power adapter/power cord).

Pioneer Elite BDP-05D Firmware Update

I have been trying to update the firmware (1.73) on my Elite blu ray player with little success. At first I downloaded and proceeded to update it but every time I loaded the disc I received "no disc" message. I called Pioneer service and went through some troubleshooting efforts with no success. They mailed me their update (1.74) disc and I the same message when I loaded the disc. Blu ray playback works but it freezes A LOT. DVD playback is unaffected. Has anyone else ever encountered this issue??

My player was manufactured November 2008, S/N HKEA018197CC.

Thanks.

Try and see if the player will playback a music CD... If not, the red laser for the drive is apparently bad... The optical drives in the Pioneer is not very reliable. Unfortunately, the price of a replacement drive is more expensive than buying a newer player with more features...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

my own BDP-05FD (with latest Firmware installed) is still going strong to this day. been experiencing STAR TREK TNG sequentially for the first time since it's original airing in my childhood,
gotten up to the 1992 season so far, with nary a hiccup from the 05FD so far, save for a single instance of the player refusing to navigate menus on a specific disc,
with the player locking up to the point that it required the Firmware reinstalled before it returned to normal operation.

since it's been a flawless champ ever since, i'm inclined to chock that one up to happenstance...
