FYI, I was torn on whether to like this or dislike this, but AVS only has a like button available.

Oh, and you don't really think they would change the specs, do you?

I just bought a used Oppo BDP-93 off Ebay. It did not come with the Oppo USB2.0 WiFi dongle. The user manual says:

The wireless adaptor included in the BDP-93 package has been pre-configured to work with BDP-93 player. It is compatible with 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz wireless networkds.

Has anyone used an aftermarket WiFi dongle?
If so, what brand model number?
Is it plug and play or is there something else that needs to be done for it to have a working handshake.

I've done a search for an original BDP-93 WiFi adaptor/dongle for sale and come up empty.

AVS is a great place.

I have never used the dongle. (It is just gathering dust)
Instead, I am using a bridge. In my network, I am using MAC filtering and not broadcasting my SSID.
The bridge takes the WIFI signal and converts it to a wired connection serving my AV equipment.
If I remember correctly the dongle only supports WPA (And not WPA2) I am also using a AC3200
Tri-Band router as my connection source. (It was not convenient to run Ethernet cable, but this is
the next best thing)

YouTube app no longer works on the BDP-93

Until recently, I was able to use the YouTube app on my Oppo 93. I found this posting on the YouTube Help Forum claiming that Oppo needs to issue a new firmware update to fix it:

Quote:
In April 2015 Google shut down the old youtube API which is what the BDP-93 youtube player used. So the only way to fix it is for Oppo to do a firmware update with a new youtube player that works with the new API. I doubt they are going to do that. So yes google made a change, but the fix will have to come from Oppo.
Is Oppo aware of the issue, and is the above description correct? Can the BDP-93 be updated to work with the new YouTube API?

Thanks.

This is the last message I received from OPPO Support:

"Unfortunately there is nothing else that we can recommend other than to try the service at another time. We have seen a throttling down of YouTube now that Google is moving on to HTML 5 and are slowly discontinuing service to devices that use the discrete application."

I'd be surprised if the hardware in the 93 can support the new YouTube protocol. The performance of the existing YouTube app on the 9x players was already pretty awful. It was always the worst of the apps.

Recently watched the Australian version of the remastered Total Recall (Arnie) Bluray. The movie was fine, but when I selected one of the extras, the screen went into a sort of extreme low-res mode like 160x90. What was more disturbing is that I tried to change resolution with the remote to Source Direct and discovered the Oppo menu was also in this bizarre low res mode. Nothing I could do apart from turning the Oppo off and then on again would reset the display to 1080p.

This wasn't consistently repeatable as I was able to watch the extra at its correct resolution after a few goes, however it did appear to be natively SD resolution. I'm guessing it is a strange SD resolution that is confusing the player.

Has anyone experienced this type of effect? I think I have the 2nd to latest firmware on this particular 93 unit.

I have the latest firmware update and it worked fine on my oppo 93. I even played some 3d trailers on it.

I have seen a very "pixelated" Oppo splash screen a few time on startup. Always have to power cycle. I stopped worrying after a while, mildly annoying, but not turned into a serious problem. I think this has occurred either side of a firmware change - running latest version now.

Whilst this isn't the first time I have experienced this issue, it is so rare that it is not particularly problematic: I was just interested if it was a known issue with a workaround or fix.

It's just so bizarre that it affects the Oppo menu and not just the video in question.

My BDP -93 has stopped playing blu-rays. I 'm getting the unknown disc message. Cd's and dvds play with no problems.


I tried unplugging and letting it reset. I also tried this _ " Remove the chassis lid. Remove the protective top plate on the optical drive. Both laser lenses will be visible. Gently swab each with a Q-tip barely moistened with alcohol."


Why would it stop playing just blu-rays ?

^ Sounds like the blue laser has failed, which would mean the player needs hardware service. (The other disc types use the red laser.)

You could try re-installing the firmware. That's not likely to help, but it's the only other thing you can try yourself.

Tried the YouTube app last night and nada. Oppo blames YouTube, YouTube blames Oppo and we get screwed.

Sometimes it's necessary to try more than once.

I've actually started using my Amazon Fire TV box for YouTube, but the last time I tried through my 93 a few months ago it worked fine - after not working the time before that.

I might have a lead on an untouched BPD-93. Is it still possible to find firmware 60-1125B anywhere?

Edit: This looks promising but doesn't have the additional DVD460.bin file like the newest firmware release does. Is that a problem?

Edit 2: Just found the official 1125B firmware on Oppo's http download site. FWIW the file from the link above and the one from oppo have matching MD5.

Thanks for the heads-up and tip.

Since Oppo seem to be creating errors in the links to older firmware, I have now downloaded all versions for posterity/security (same with firmware for the 83) from the http download site (eg http://download.oppodigital.com/BDP9...x-71-0723B.zip ).

Any particular reason for wanting BDP9x-60-1125B, since BDP9x-61-1219 is supposed to be the last ISO capable firmware?

The last ISO capable firmware introduced some issues with subtitles and something else that I don't really remember.
Ironically, the Beta FW,60-1125B is more stable than the last official ISO FW.

I've been running the July version prior to 1125 or 1219. I kept a copy of 1219 but have never had a reason to load it.

Is this on every disc?

Both Bitstream and LPCM?

Both HDMI1 and 2?

So far on the last two movies I watched. Both were Atmos.

Not sure on the next two questions. I'll check. Why?

Atmos is the clue. It uses complex seamless branching which the -93 cannot Bistream properly. Changing to LPCM should eliminate the dropouts, but you lose the Atmos.

No, they can handle the complex seamless branching via Bitstream.

And that's using HDMI Bitstream?

I always regret answering audio questions because all I know is what I read. The problem is complex seamless branching of Dolby TrueHD. Do all Atmos tracks use that, or only some?
