Did that before sending it in but thanks for the tip! Power cord only, stuck on HELLO You could hit eject, tray would come out, hit it again, tray goes in. At that point frozen solid, remaining on HELLO.

Another thing to try would be to load the current firmware on a USB drive or disc,
and see if the player will try to install the firmware.
It probably won't work, but maybe worth a try since you are sending it in anyway.

Repair was:


"Chris,

We had found that the errors were due to the firmware no longer working properly. We manually upgraded the firmware, found no additional errors, so the player was returned to you.


Best Regards,

Customer Service "

Yeah right? Haha. Is there a way I could have performed what they said? The player was essentially bricked. No response from controls even with just AC power and no other connections, after 24 hours of being unplugged.

I had a somewhat similar experience recently, possibly after a power spike. The standard practice of unplugging everything and leaving it off power for a few minutes didn't work. Leaving it off power overnight DID fix it, so I didn't have to send mine in to Oppo :-) This was the first time I had ever had to do this in all the years I've had my 93 :-)

I am experiencing an issue with playback of 1080p24 mkv files via USB on my Oppo 93. In some movies containing panning of static images (e.g. documentaries), the panning motion is jerky and quite uncomfortable to the eye. I initially thought it had something to do with 24p pull down, but even after switching off the 1080p24 output on the Oppo, the problem persisted.
Is this a known issue? How can I fix it.
For comparison, I played the same movie on my mac mini using VLC, and the playback of those particular scenes was much smoother.

Thanks,
Aris.

I don't think so. They have a way of accessing the main board directly.

I am having issues with smooth playback of 720p24 material, so I'm wondering if this extends to 1080p24 as well.

It is possible that 24p (versus 23.976p) is not being processed correctly and is thus being output as 1080p60 with pulldown, creating the jerky effect. Consequently, if you turned off 1080p24 mode you would still get 1080p60 and therefore no change in that jerky effect.

However, 720p23.976 is correctly being upscaled to 1080p23.976, so it could be a glitch with 24fps exactly encodes (of which I have noticed a number appearing recently).

In this situation, I have to play my 24fps (exactly) material through my ISO Oppo 93 or NTV550 as neither have the jerky issue, so I am guessing there is an issue in the later Oppo 93 firmware as it relates to 24fps (exactly) material.
