For the players that have the old ISO capable firmware, I think there are a few discs that have trouble playing. They were fixed in later firmware, but then you lose the ISO capabilities.

So far my 93 ISO firmware player has played every disk I put in it without trouble.

I have a BDP-93 and ever since I've owned it, as soon as I put in a movie the initial audio track never comes on when the video does. It skips and jitters. When I contacted Oppo they say it's 'normal' and something about the audio catching up with the video which sounds lame to me. Anyone else have this issue? All updates of firmware have been applied.

My recollection is that all the Oppos I've used have had that skip part. (Don't recall any jitters.)

My recollection also is that my Panasonic blu-ray player from long ago didn't skip. And my Denon dvd player before that did skip. (And even further back I don't think my Panasonic dvd player skipped audio either...)

But I could be mis-remembering, and maybe they all did skip.

I had to change the HDMI settings on the JVC X5500 and that fixed the problem.


Thus it appears there was some kind of handshake confusion or irritation introduced by the JVC that influenced the BDP-93.

Wow so this is the case with all Oppos?

From memory, yes. Playing a movie or a special feature, usually the first second or two are muted. I usually go back and start it over to get the sound.

(It could be my receiver... but like I said, I don't recall Panasonics having this same feature. But I think my Denon did though.)

I don't remember having the problem with my Integra 80.2, but I am having it with my 80.3.
I am having the same problem with my UDP-203 & my Integra 80.3 which leads me to believe the problem rests with the Integra.

Wow even with the UDP-203? Makes me wonder if it's my AVR as well. Spoke to Oppo again today and he said it may be with the 'handshake' which is causing the lag. He said to try connecting the Oppo directly to the TV and see if that resolves it then you know it's your receiver.

BDP 93 and Fox Blu Rays

I've seen a few posts from a few years ago, but within the last few days my player will no longer load a Blu Ray if the title is from FOX. OPPO gave instructions to clean the lens and spindle but that didn't help. I tried reinstalling the latest firmware, deleting setup info, and clearing persistent storage and that didn't help. I've cycled power and no help. OPPO says it needs to be sent in for out of warranty repair. The player works fine with every other disc Blu Ray, DVD Audio, SACD, etc. Only FOX Blu Rays are causing trouble.
Has anyone else had this problem and figured out a resolution?

Are the problematic Fox Blu Rays from your collection that have played in the past or are they new to you?

Have you tried cleaning the Blu Ray disks?

How many Fox discs have your tried?

Do you segregate your Blu Ray collection by studio?

Is there any chance that the Fox discs are getting too much sun?

At first I thought it was only a few discs received from Netflix. Then I tried discs from my collection that used to play fine and they didn't load either.

Yes, they have been cleaned.

I've tried 5 or 6.

No I don't segregate.

My discs are stored in the drawer of a cabinet. 0 sun exposure.

All the discs loaded and played fine on an XBOX One and a cheap Panasonic player.

It does sound like a dying blue laser. Oppo will fix that right up for you at minimal cost.
If you're feeling competent you can try opening the drive and cleaning the laser, but don't bother with trying a "cleaning disc"..

This is going to be rather off the wall, but is your 93 connected to the Internet? If not, try connecting it. Check with Connection Test (in Setup > Network Setup) that it is actually connected. Wait a few minutes after that, and then try the FOX discs again.

---------------------------

I don't think the odds are great the above will fix your problem, but it is worth a try.

Odds are you'll have to send the player in for service. You should include one of your Fox discs with it when you send it in. (You'll get it back, of course.)

Already cleaned the laser diode even though there was zero visible dust/debris. I have trouble thinking it the laser when it will play all other Blu Rays fine except Blu Rays from Fox studios. You're right, OPPO will fix or replace the player and it may be my only recourse, but I'm still hoping someone will have had this problem and found a fix without a factory repair.

Yeah Bob, I've tried it both connected and disconnected. It is something about the FOX discs and this player.

I've been checking out both the 203 and 205 and I think I will hang on to the 93 for a little while longer, too many issues for now, but it seems things maybe coming around. She's doing perfectly fine for now.

Bob has probably read every OPPO related post about player problems. A lot of us have read a lot of the same posts, and I have no recollection of a post like yours. My current player is the 93, and I'm a heavy Netflix user of rental discs.

I've never cleaned the laser on our 93, but I'm aware that an oily film can build up that hard to see.

I don't know enough about the media itself to know how Fox discs might be the first to fail as the blue laser begins giving up the ghost. In our case, I would want to give OPPO a chance to fix the player before giving up on it. Sending a Fox Blu-ray along with it seems to be a good idea.

Best of luck.

Fox is known for doing particularly bizarre stuff in their disc authoring in an attempt to foil disc ripping software. I suspect your 93 has a processing or memory problem that's causing the Fox funny stuff to fail. It wouldn't surprise me if OPPO decides to swap out the mother board when you send the player in for service.

Do be sure to send a disc with it so they can easily confirm the problem.

Their out of warranty service is "flat rate" (and reasonably priced), so it really doesn't make a difference what they find needs fixing. They'll get you going again.

If you search this thread using FOX BLU RAY, you'll find posts going back to 2011 and nearly every year after with the BDP 93 unable to load and play FOX Blu Ray. I'm going to re-read them all to see if I missed anything. For sure I'm not the only one to every have this problem. I'm wondering if a firmware update would remedy the problem, but then OPPO will probably never issue another for the 93. I did clean the diode thoroughly with both a lens cleaner and alcohol. It looked no different under a magnifying glass, but I can imagine the diode getting a film just from the environment. I've probably watched Avatar 3D ten times but it doesn't load now.

I have had my 93 for many years, and the onset of Atmos (and a new dedicated room) meant a new player which handled complex branching better was required.
Having had the 203 since the beginning, I would never get rid of my 93 now.....

Mainly because the 203 has had teething issues, and the early days meant I used the 93 as a great backup BR player.

It also has no cinavia worries either. In fact, I ended up buying a 103D to make sure the TV room was covered, giving me plenty of options.

Yep, I wouldn't recommend moving your Oppos on.....

Probably you should name a few specific titles, with bar codes, so others can check them.
