Can someone tell me if there's a gizmo that will let me connect my DAP player (that only has a mini aux output) with the Oppo?

I'm hoping there's something that when connected to my DAP player will send the signal to the supplied USB Oppo Dongle.

The problem is with my player... the files play fine on my brother's player. I talked with Oppo and did some troubleshooting and they acknowledged it is a problem with the player...

I called Netflix because I am only getting 720P output from my Oppo when streaming Netflix.
If I stream Netflix from my VT60 plasma, Netflix streams 1080 or at least that is what my VT60 reports.

Netflix checked this out and they confirm that the problem with only streaming 720 is with the Oppo 95.

^ The older app Netflix has provided for the 9x players is only capable of receiving 720p streams. This is not a performance limitation of the 9x hardware, as evidenced by the fact that the VUDU app handles 1080p streams, but rather a limitation of the Netflix app itself.

Netflix evidently has no interest in upgrading the app for this older player which is no longer being manufactured.

Don't you just love spending a Grand on equipment that becomes obsolete in a few years?

If you think this is bad, wait until folks realize the 4K gear they just bought isn't "real", and has to be replaced.

Obsolete? Try buying any current AVR.

Well, I do love to exaggerate.

I discovered an oddity of sorts the other night. I was playing a bluray concert vid with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 channel track. The bass seemed anemic and after messing a bit with various settings, I pulled out my S & M ver.2 calibration disc. It has both a Dolby TrueHD and DTS MA track which is cool for comparison's sake. All things being equal, the Dolby track was 5 dbs lower than the DTS track when testing the sub channel. Has anyone ever run across this before?

I'm pushing the BDP95 through a Parasound C-2 pre-pro using analog outs from the oppo. The Parasound is set to analog bypass.

Ya that sounds about right.

So the 103/5 Oppo's have the right netflix app for 1080P.?

Also will the 103 handle 4K streaming from netflix to a 4K OLED.???

The 10x players accept 1080p streams. These come in as 1080p/60 (at one of several different bit rates). The 10xD players (the Darbee models) can upscale that to 4K/60 output as YCbCr 4:2:0 color space.

The 10x players can not accept 4K streams. At the moment, Netflix is only streaming 4K to apps built *INSIDE OF* TVs, which bypasses the whole problem of how to send such 4K content over an HDMI cable with studio-acceptable Copy Protection.

I have enjoyed trouble-free playback from my 95 since I bought it, but now I have encountered an issue I hope you can help me out with.


My 95 is connected via hdmi for multichannel playback, and with analog rca for stereo playback. My recent problem is that the 95 does not send any signal via the rca analog outputs, only via hdmi. Earlier, this problem could be resolved by powering down and restarting, but that trick does not work.


Should I re-install the software? Do I have to set the hdmi audio output to "off" in order to enjoy analog output?


Any suggestions?

Are you sure the problem isn't at the receiver? Any changes there?

I would try these steps, checking for proper audio after each:
  • Disconnect all cables, reinsert them and check for a firm connection.
  • Verify from some other source that the receiver is working properly, using the same sockets as the player is connected to.
  • Reset Factory Defaults in the player.
  • Reinstall current firmware.

If none of that works then you may have a hardware failure and should contact OPPO or your dealer.

The most common reason for losing just Analog audio output is that you have the player's Volume turned way down low but not all the way to zero.

Volume buttons near top of remote.

(Volume only affects Analog audio output, except for Volume 0, which is treated like Mute.)

If that's not it, what content are you playing when this fails? All types, even simple stuff like a CD?

Are you using the Dedicated Stereo Analog output jacks? Do you have the Stereo Signal setting set to DOWN-MIXED STEREO? If not, do you have the Left Front / Right Front speakers enabled in Speaker Configuration?

Another test would be to try the Left Front / Right Front pair of jacks in the multi-channel set. If those WORK, then the stereo board in your player may need service.

As always, there's a simple explanation to many problems. Very much so in this case..

There's nothing wrong with my Oppo. As I began checking the connections and going through all parameters, it suddenly struck me; my wife had entered my man cave the day before yesterday for her weekly saxophone practice session. I thought it was strange finding zone 2 and 3 enabled yesterday, but didn't give it a second thought at the time.

What I didn't realise was that she also had powered down my power amps (used only for left and right front channels and subs), including the amp for the TT's. No wonder I didn't get any sound from stereo playback..

Thank you for your help, I'll keep it in mind next time the wife messes up my finely calibrated gear.
