Are you sure? I have 3 different Harmony and all of them allow different codes. After you have the original remote programmed for the alternate code, open the Harmony program , go to device, settings, CONFIRM IR COMMANDS. Use the original remote and learn the 3 commands asked by the program. After that, all your commands will use the alternate code for the device.

you mean after setting it to code 2? or code 3? the original remote?

Hi, Jacob;
I have two BDP-83s, one for the Panasonic 37" LED via AV Dish DTVR Pal and the other for the Panasonic 42" LED also via AV Dish DTVR Pal. Reception is trouble free and excellent, (of course, a 40 foot antenna mast and a 180" UHF/VHF rotatable antenna helps). I purchased BDP-93 which I'm going to integrate into my new 7.2 ,3D,(main ), 60" plasma, HT system.
Hope this helps,

George

Yes. Set one of your Oppo remotes to codeset 2 or 3 and then take that remote and your Harmony to your computer and plug the Harmony into your computer and access the Harmony update website and follow the procedure mentioned.
Jacob305's Avatar Jacob305 02:28 PM 11-29-2010
looks like I should keep the oppo 83 and then try the remote stuff on the harmony.. then use my HDMi switcher until I can save up for a new receiver. hopefully that can work for now.

I recieved my BDP-93 on Friday. Tried for a couple of hours yesterday.

First problem
- When you insert a blu-ray disk you loose picture for up to 2 minutes as it fights to lock with the Classe CT-SSP processor and my Pioneer PRO-FHD1 display.
- During this period you get flickers of picture, but mostly no video signal at the display.

None of my many HDMI sources do this nor did I have this problem with the BDP-83.

Any suggestions? Anyone else have a BDP93 + Classe CT-SSP (or SSP-800)?

Also seeing that Netflix stutters a little. Don't see this problem with my XBOX or PC running Netflix over my 25meg connection

thx

MSAMJI:

do you own a 120 refresh HDTV? turn the digital motion off (whatever its called on your set). I have the problem on my philips tv.

Jacob
msamji's Avatar msamji 02:43 PM 11-29-2010
nope, its a 2007 Pioneer Elite PRO-FHD1 1080p display @ 60hz

One other thing is that I think the PRO-FHD1 only support HDMI v1.1. Not sure if that is the issue.

But I do know that my Classe Processor - CT-SSP supports HDMI v1.3

I have also disabled 3D on the Oppo and set it to OFF from Audio. Didn't make a difference.

It eventually handshakes, just takes up to 2 minutes of pain.

I am aware of at least 3 that have had problems. For me, it is with a VSX-32 and the AVR will power cycle off and on during use. And, there is no work around. Using both HDMI outputs, swapping cables, and several setting changes have failed to correct the problem.

Oppo is replacing the unit.

I meant the 120 refresh for the netflix problem.
I would e-mail oppo about it.

The key for me and the reason why I belive Oppo decided to use the Marvell over the Abit is that the Marvell works very well with streaming video.

I have tested the BDP93 on several Netflix streams comparing the video to the Roku and Boxee solutions and the BDP93 with the Marvell has the best pricture in my opinion.

BDP93 Beta Tester.


When you say works very well with streaming video, Do you mean all content streamed, even files over a dlna network, or do you specifically mean netflix/blockbuster and VOD services?

Network
It seems the oppo only displays PCs that are hardwired into the network; how can I view items on a PC that is on the network but wireless? Ty

Wow, a few days away and more than 500 new posts . . . no time to read through, unfortunately.

One new feature that I really like about the 93 is eject after power-on. With the 83, I would power on the whole system with Logitech Harmony, but the player would not respond to the eject button until the "No Disc" came up or it started loading whatever was in there.

Now, with the 93, I can power on and immediately hit Eject, and the tray comes out as soon as its able to (ie, as if I had turned it on using the eject button).

They should be the same. The PC must be running a DLNA server or it won't appear.

Spoke to Oppo

They have a Classe SSP-800 (which is internally equivalent to my CT-SSP) that they are using to see if they can repro my problem.

Anyone else have success with Oppo + Classe?

So you're saying Oppo has classe?

I feel like an idiot compared to your knowledge on AV stuff, guys. So, bare with me on my n00b-like questions I may ask. That being said lol, do I use BDP-93 or the last model number when setting up a Harmony?
abba1's Avatar abba1 04:24 PM 11-29-2010
I don't know if this is the right / proper thread, but I was wonder if any of you own the Sony 1000ES and how it compares with the Oppo 93

You should use BDP-83

Ran into my first .mkv file tonight while streaming from my dlna server that for some reason wouldn't allow rewinding or ffdwing. Pause worked fine, just gave me the red circle with a line through it when I tried to rewind or fast forward though. Anyone know what the possible cause of this would be? Every other .mkv I have played before on it has let me rewind and fast forward.

Have you tried comparing the ones that work with the one that doesn't using Media Info?

I tried the manual setup at first but it was "no go", as the Oppo interface for the manual connection was very challenging to use. In particular, nothing I could do could help me to fill in the "scan mode" (or whatever it's called) selection (that's the selection between "network name" and "network password".

Ultimately, I unmasked my network (unselected "Create a closed network") and used the "scan" feature on the Oppo. That went flawlessly. I then remasked my network, and every time I turn on the 93, it still recognized the network.

All good!

Got it. Thanks. So there's some magic that makes wifi reconnect on power up work reliably. I wonder what it is?

I haven't. I will do so, however the problem is I have absolutely NO idea what I am looking for in regards to a difference between the two that would cause that problem. That's why I wondered if anyone had an idea of what it might be off hand
vinnie97's Avatar vinnie97 05:27 PM 11-29-2010
Just see if there are any differences whatsoever.

On the network issue some are having in terms of no automatic connection, it sounds like temporarily unmasking the network ID (on your initial connection) in your router settings is the solution.

I'm not sure if you posted this before or after you got your 93. I'm debating buying a rackshelf for the 83 and using it for the 93 or if I should wait for a new one to come out for the 93. The 93 looks very silly in my rack right now as it is replacing a player that is about twice the height.

Does the 93 look natural in the shelf for the 83 or do you think a shelf specifically built for the 93 will look much better?

I've got the -32 also and have the same problem. I thought I might have had speaker wires crossed and rewired the whole thing.

I'd strongly recommend that you wait. It's not so much that the 93 will look bad in a shelf for the 83, but you won't be able to get access to the front USB port as the face will partially block access to the cover - I test mounted mine, but didn't take a photo. I doubt it will be all that long until the custom face is available for the 93.

I got my 93 late last week, and have loved it so far - a *huge* improvement over my Panasonic BD-60.

I have found 2 issues so far, both minor, but I thought I would report them here anyway:

1) I am connected via HDMI-1 to a Denon 3806 using LPCM. My Denon is set for 5.1, not 7.1. If I set the audio sampling options in the Oppo to either 96Khz or 48Khz, I got random pops/crackles/static out of the speakers when playing, or even when nothing else is going on (e.g., sitting at a static menu on a bluray disc). However, if I set it to 192Khz, everything seems to work fine. This is an HDMI cable that has worked fine for my Panasonic BD-60 for 2 years, so I don't think it's the cable. I noticed in this thread, someone else was having random static/pop issues - could they be related?

2) This one is way less important, but interesting - I have my DirecTV DVRs on my home network using their "Whole Home DVR" service. If I browse "My Network" on the Oppo, my DVRs show up, and I can then browse their playlists. If I try to play a file from the DVR, the Oppo gives an "invalid file" popup, as it should. However, if I then go back to trying to play the loaded Bluray, I keep getting the "invalid file" popup over and over til I power cycle the Oppo.

Also, does anyone know if their are discrete remote codes to choose the 3 different video modes for things like noise reduction, brightness, sharpness, etc? It would be very convenient to have a button on my Harmony to switch between them for bluray or for DVD that could use some noise reduction (I love the NR setting of "2" for noisy DVDs- thanks for the tip, whoever posted that earlier).

Thanks,
Scott

I emailed Oppo with my music CD problems. The popping and skipping problem is a known problem with HDMI 1. They said try HDMI 2 and it should fix the problem. I tried it-no help. Just as bad on #2. They said they would need to research it so more. I never had any issues with the BDP-83 and to answer someone's question, nope, not selling the 83.....
I'm using a Denon 3808i
