I presume every serious OPPO user has a suite of tests he runs for each new firmware.

The updated Netflix is nice...had to reactivate the device. Still no 5.1, yet...no biggie.

Vudu works nice...got another $5.99 credit for a title.

Other things to test: does FLAC audio work in an MKV container now? How about OGG audio? How about DTS-HD tracks? Questions, questions, questions . . .
LOVE the FLAC id tags and Ogg support, as well as the sound of the DLNA improvements.
And how does that sorting work?

Colour me surprised, but I can confirm that it's now possible to play DVD .ISO files from attached storage. It won't work over DLNA (I don't think it's in the DLNA spec), but if you throw an ISO on a USB drive it'll will be identified and play exactly as if it were a DVD, menu support and all. Very, very impressive.

Removable drive sorting is now alpha-numeric.

ISO playback from removable storage should be working for DVD-V, DVD-A. They will always be listed in the "movie" pathway and should play exactly as they do from discs. All disc functions should be nominal. Note also that DVD-A priority in the playback setup also effects ISO playback.

Edited to add: Folks with large HDDs and lots of files should now see significant improvement in indexing time and navigation speeds. You may still see some lag in navigation while playing high-res audio files.

Hi all,

Please advise of stuff that doesn't work. I mainly play Blu Ray and have had "No" problems with my 93, other than going ga-ga over the video and sound quality.

With some advice from Bob, Bill and others, I've got my player set up pretty well. I have a good enough display and audio to tell if things aren't working properly.

Will try the new Beta tomorrow and try stuff again.

Thanks to all that helped on this thread, and especially the guys in Mountain View.

Nice Stuff!

Wow, the list of improvements alone is incredible. Unfortunately it's almost midnight out here in the East, or else I'd gladly take several of these features out for a test drive.

And DVD ISO support -- who did Oppo have to bribe at Mediatek to get that one through? Never mind, I don't wanna know . . .

Yes, I noticed this when I tried my ISO test file: navigation was frighteningly fast.

Tested three different Blu-ray ISOs, and they all played perfectly. Loading times were lightning fast. To do: compare actual disc loading time with same disc (as ISO) loading time.

Also, I can confirm the disc tray can now be closed before the boot-up sequence finishes.

Loader Version: CN0900
Sub Version: MCU93-09-0218 (BDP-93), MCU95-08-0218 (BDP-95)

1. VUDU HD Movies is added to the "Internet" section of the Home Menu.
2. The Netflix application is upgraded to version 2.1. This upgrade allows for Canadian customers to stream Netflix and adds the "Search" function.
3. Upgrade the Blu-ray loader firmware (CN0900), which can read discs more quietly, smoothly and robustly.
4. Add a new option for "Output Volume" in the setup menu (Setup -> Audio Processing -> Output Volume). You can either enable or disable volume control for the analog audio output. When "Output Volume" is set to "Fixed", the player outputs a fixed volume level that is the same as the volume control set to 100. When Output Volume is set to Variable, the analog output volume can be controlled by the remote "VOL +/-" buttons. If you use your A/V receiver or pre-amp to control the volume, we recommend disabling the volume control on the player to avoid accidentally reducing the player's output level.
5. Add the "direct play" support for DVD-A discs. Once the disc loading is done, you can directly press the STOP followed by the PLAY buttons on the remote to start the playback. This feature is useful for customers who do not use a video monitor while playing audio discs.
6. Added ID-Tag support for APE and FLAC files. Now these formats will show Title, Artist, Album and Genre on screen when played back at the Home Menu. Embedded Album Art is also supported for FLAC files.
7. Added OGG and OGM Vorbis media support. For OGG, the channel number is limited up to 2 and the sample rate is limited up to 96KHz.
8. Improve BD-Live connectivity. For example, "MovieIQ" will now properly connect and download additional media on selected Sony Pictures Blu-rays.
9. Improve DLNA performance, which includes faster indexing and more reliable media playback, and added additional DLNA server support.
10. Improve HDMI compatibility with some A/V receivers and televisions.
11. Improve the general disc compatibility based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.

so this means i am now obliged to grab a second 93. any chance they will drop a bdp90?

In search of video bliss...

Bryan,

That is excellent news. Can you confirm if the BDP-93 now supports full BDISO playback with menu support or does it treat Bluray's as BDISO Light (movie only)?

Well done OPPO!

I am a pleased owner of BDP-83 and due to the ISO (now) and NTFS support will move over to a new BDP-93.

Hi

This is my first post!

I think the Oppo BDP-93 is a fantastic device, so much so that I imported one to Australia and my brother and I bought one for my parents. It plays blu-rays and dvds brilliantly, it streams, and supports heaps of file types (hope wma pro and wma lossless support will be added).

Can anyone please confirm if the latest June 10, 2011 beta retains support for Zoom and Aspect Ratio (AR) adjustment for BD-Java enabled discs as was in the May 2, 2011 beta firmware?

Cheers,
Colin

The new Beta Firmware contains all the fixes of the previous Beta Firmware which includes the ability to zoom BD-JAVA titles.

I can confirm the new firmware plays 3D blu-ray .iso's perfectly via USB!

Even better, I was having trouble getting Tron 3D working using the AVCHD trick (the menu's wouldn't work making the movie unplayable), but I re-ripped Tron 3D in .iso format and tried again with the new firmware...it works perfect!!!

I couldn't get DVD .iso's to work though. It's 2:45AM, so I may have been doing something wrong, but can someone confirm for sure DVD movie .iso's work? I checked DVD's in "Video_ts" format and they definitely don't work. I'll check up in the morning, now I'm FINALLY off to bed...

Thought I should mention that my quick testing of the new firmware shows very positive DLNA improvements. Thanks to the update, Playback for OS X (which has itself been recently updated), seems to be working beautifully with the 93, including full iPhoto albums and iTunes playlist support, which caused the player to hang before.

2. The Netflix application is upgraded to version 2.1. This upgrade allows for Canadian customers to stream Netflix and adds the "Search" function.

Netflix won't work when I tried it, I got past the "Are you a customer" prompt, but then was told that the OPPO does not stream directly from Nexflix. The 93 doesn't show up on their website as a "Netflix Ready Device". Is it because it is still in beta??

Netflix 2.1 is the minimum requirement for Canada Netflix streaming. The update brings OPPO to the minimal level required, but that does not mean that the servers have been updated to reflect this capability.

Technically it should not matter if it is Beta or not, as the main requirement was updating the API to 2.1. OPPO can't update the API to the public unless it has been certified by Netflix, so the player should be connecting to the servers.

You might have to wait a couple of days and see if Netflix doesn't change anything on their end.

Wow, bombastic update. Can't wait to try it. Netflix needs to stop showing favoritism to the PS3 and bring 5.1 over to some of the high-end competitors.

Finally did it!

Ordered the 93 yesterday & it's on its way to GA
So I may have my share of questions soon

Thanks all for helping me with the questions I had along the way, like the reg free kits, comparisons of audio quality in the 95, etc.

Tough call for me - do I sell my $2K Pio 09 player, most likely take a big loss & buy the 95 or just add the 93 to my collection of players.

In the end, I decided if I wanted to use analog audio, the Pio 09 is still a great player & it's already paid for

Has the issue been fixed that caused music files on a USB drive to occasionally display not sorted alphabetically?
