The Oppo rep here in the land of Oz has been trying to investigate this issue for me without success. Is there a chance Oppo HQ could approach Netflix on behalf of Oppo 95 owners everywhere?
+1.. that would be nice.
I think the customers have to call and complain.

Darn, just happened to notice this bug while checking out the latest HOBBIT BluRay in 3D. Glad to know the source at least......

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

Bob, I am in Australia with an Oppo BDP 95AU which had Netflix on its menu from the day I bought it. With Netflix in Australia, I was looking forward to using my 95 for this (had never bothered with signing up to a VPN etc). However, while I use to get an error message of "not available in your region" from the Netflix app on my Oppo 95, I am now getting a "not available on your device" message. Just fyi, I do have the latest firmware (October 2014)

My local Oppo rep advises, after a number of back and forth emails that:

" OPPO just got back to me saying Netflix is not possible on BDP95 in Australia due to hardware limitations. Only way to access Netflix on BDP95 is through a VPN.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you are experiencing in respect to your OPPO player."

That to me does not make sense, as if it can receive netflix through a VPN, surely that means it is hardware capable, and that the built-in netflix app is the problem?

I have also complained to the local Netflix that USA Oppo 95 people are streaming Netflix, so what is different about the set-up in Australia? They promised to "refer the matter to our engineers".
To make matters worse, my pc (which is hooked into my sound and vision system via hdmi into my NAD T 775HD AVR), which is running Windows 7, apparently will not receive 5.1 sound even though it will stream full HD video.
So, apart from waiting around for Netflix Australia to get their act together to support a wider range of platforms, it seems I am either going to need to upgrade to Windows 8 ( and I don't want that!!) or buy some new wifi hardware (Chromecast or whatever) compatible with whatever Netflix is doing here in Oz. (Even my relatively new Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2 (android 4.4.2) will not receive a netflix 5.1 surround sound signal, only the 2-channel stream (again still in full HD)

But to get relevant to this thread again, am I correct in believing that my Oppo Netflix prob is NOT a Hardware prob??

It clearly isn't a hardware limitation in the player as the player's hardware is obviously capable of working with Netflix. But apparently Netflix in Australia has decided they won't support the BDP-9x platform and unless they change their mind, going with a VPN is probably your only option other than getting another device that has support for Netflix in Australia.

^ By my understanding it's apparently a combo of issues. The older app provided by Netflix for the 9x players does not support international servers -- just another of several limitations in that older app, such as only being able to receive 720p streams and with only stereo audio. Thus it is a "software" issue.

However Netflix won't update that app because the 9x player hardware lacks certain, security-related hardware Netflix spec'd and mandated AFTER the 9x players went into production. I.e., hardware support for enhancements to their Copy Protection. Thus it is a "hardware" issue.

I suspect Netflix could work around this given the limited streams they are offering for these players anyway. But they evidently have no interest in doing further work for an older player no longer in production.

Thanks Bob and GSR both.

As usual, the people in this forum succeed in clarifying issues that no-one else seems able to.

Thanks, guys.

If I could afford it, my choice of "getting other hardware" would be to replace my 95 with a 105 if I could afford it. Don't know what sort of money I could get at this late stage for my 95: I don't think any of the Oz Oppo retailers do trade-ins. In any case, at this late stage in Oppo's history, I would probably be better of waiting to see what the next re-incarnation of the 105 will be.

Long live AVSForum!!!

Oppo players hold a pretty strong resale value. I see a 95 just sold on eBay.AU for $750AU yesterday.

In my opinion, you'd be wise at this point to wait for the BDP-"115" which undoubtedly will be compliant with the BD 4K spec debuting this fall.

However, the last word I heard was that Oppo won't be releasing a new player for at least 2 years.

Could someone give me an idea of how many streaming apps are presently supported on the BDP-95? I know it was released with a rather short list. Are such apps as PBS, MLB TV, Bloomberg, WSJ, Amazon, or others supported? Thank you.

No, none of those. They are not built into the current 103/105 series either.

The list of original native apps:
  • Netflix
  • Picasa Web Album
  • Film Fresh
  • VUDU
  • YouTube
  • Pandora

I am also having a handshaking issue, I appreciate the efforts mentioned in this thread, but I am not making much progress.
I have the Oppo 95 blu ray, a Denon 4311 AVR and an LG 55LW6500 LCD.
I wanted to compare the different DACs so I connected the Oppo 95 to the Denon multiple ways.
I connected them over Oppo hdmi to the Denon blu ray in, and with surround analog Oppo to Denon DVD in and with stereo audio Oppo to Denon CD in.
I expected to be able to switch back and forth while listening to a dvd or cd, but when I switch the Denon back to the blu ray input the hdmi handshake fails.
Has anyone made something like this work or have any thoughts? Thanks.
