Are you using Energy Efficient or Quick Start for your Standby Mode? I believe the Oppo's ethernet LAN port may be shut down during standby if Energy Efficient is used. I know the Wi-Fi is.

Hi Everybody

The 103 came in today! Still tweeking it up and evaluating. So far so good. The only thing is I cant get the remote to work. I tried the codes by the batteries and the codes in setup. I also tried coordinating the codes by the remote with the setup codes, but nothing works.

Any help would be appreciated.

Double check that you have both batteries inserted the correct way around. Also, try a fresh set of batteries.

If still no luck, give OPPO a call and they'll pop a replacement remote in the mail to you.

I have had the 103 and Darbee for about 6 months. I am happy with what the Darbee does for my PQ.

My display is a Panny plasma.

I think it is too subjective to be able to tell someone that they would love the combination.

I suggest purchasing from a reliable source that will accept returns if you don't think the Darbee is worth the cost.

For me it was worth it.

I guess to me, the fact that it's in the conversation as a processor, and that the 105 is even more so, especially for people who own older amps that they love, is a compliment.

The ability to make it a component that processes external inputs has definitely revamped it as a universal player+. Are there shortcomings against heavy duty devoted AVRs, sure. I wouldn't use it as a processor since I have a nice Pioneer that does just fine for me.

But for people who have the time and devotion to do the room correction on their own and can deal with the resolution on the volume without a problem, it seems to suit them just fine.

As to HDCP, this is a curse laid on all devices. The Oppo I'm sure has some issues with this particular albatross, but so do others, including standalone AVRs.

Having said that, I don't plan on using it as anything other than a great universal player, but I expect whoever does will be pretty happy with it so long as they realize its limitations.

Totall agree.
I wasn't suggesting using it as a processor today. That's clearly just for tinkerers.
I was going the other way. Why doesn't oppo take the one next step to add 3 more hdmi inputs (should be a piece of cake), analog volume control, and room correction licensed from Dirac or audyssey? They would then have a universal player/processor, ideally well under 1000, that would provide plug and play ability for audiophiles. And presumably no more buggy than other current options?

I think it's well beyond "just for tinkerers" and suitable for use as a processor in simple systems. The current 103 does have an analog volume control that works quite well (once you enable variable output in settings). The only issue I have with it is the buttons on the remote are small, but I use a Harmony 880 most of the time anyway. Given that 103 plays all my network related media, I don't usually miss having more inputs. My cable box connects to my rear HDMI input, and I am not a gamer. On those occasions that I want to play an HD-DVD or use my big screen as a computer display, I use my TVs inputs and get audio from the Audio Return Channel ( ARC). Having a decent remote helps here, too. All you need to do is program enough delay in to allow the TV and 103 to establish the handshake and then switch TV inputs. Not as seamless as a true multiple input processor, but easy enough that most low tech guests can do it with minimal instruction.

I sent off my broken 103 about 4pm Monday via UPS (prepaid), Oppo got it this morning at 11am in Mountain View, and shipped it out (repaired) at about 4:15pm from San Jose via FedEx. Due back Friday. The email didn't say what the problem was. Even though I'm not happy that an 11-month-old machine broke, the repair process is certainly quick and easy.

Hi, I've had the Oppo 103 a couple of months now and really love it. I stumbled across this device a few weeks ago: DARBEE DVP 5000. Considering that the Oppo already processes the video, is the DARBEE worth considering to add to my setup? I have the Oppo (and all my devices...cable box, etc) connected through my Sony STR-DA5800ES 9.2 AVR. The reviews for the DARBEE are pretty good, and some do have their Oppo connected through it. Just wondering if anyone within the forum has had any first hand experience with the DVP 5000....thanks!

Pretty nice they are geared up onsite to make repairs like that. I've wonder if many of these CE companies dont have simple diagnostic programs to run like ODBII on a car, that points them right to the spot. Would make life a little easier.

I, too, ALMOST benefit from globalnomad's step by step instruction to make SMB to work with BDP103, almost.
I first followed the instructions for several folders just to see what will happen. Wala! It works. Then I tried to duplicate the same process for the rest of all folders, but everything back to scratch. I can only see the volume lable on OPPO, not the directory under the volume label. Even the test directory I tried is now UNREACHABLE. Maybe it is something I did during the process?
Been trying to get it work for past couple weeks. Pls help!

I'm assuming you are on the latest firmware. If not, I suggest you try the 0808B Public Beta firmware:

--Bob

Well, I have all the settings there and did the 0808B Public Beta Firmware update and no dice. I'm still having problems with losing HDMI AV after using any network/internet features (i.e. USB, Netflix, et al) on the OPPO. Also, it continues to require unplugging the OPPO and waiting for a minute or two to correct the issue. I was really hoping to use the OPPO as a universal player with added functionality - it appears I'm going to need to limit it to only Blu-ray. Having said that, is there a way to "dump" data that I could provide to OPPO for their analysis and review?

This could be an ATT Uverse issue as they have been known to have handshake problems with certain pieces of equipment/televisions (although they say this has been repaired fully and many ATT Uverse customers on the forums here are adamant they have corrected it as well).

Switching inputs on your DISPLAY, then back again should be all that's required to resolve this handshake issue. (Its an HDCP problem). Power cycling the ATT box should also resolve it.

I've tried everything I can think of - including what you suggest (and beyond) - and it doesn't work. I have to unplug it.

Give OPPO a call and let them try to diagnose this with you. I think this is more likely to be an HDMI problem than a networking problem but since BOTH connect electrically to the player, it is possible for either to cause weird problems if there's something unusual on the wires.

If you've not already done so, you should try both Wifi and Ethernet networking to see if it makes a difference. That might point us at the source of the problem.

It is DEFINITELY not normal that you have to pull the power plug to cure a problem like this, so there's something going on here which is out of the ordinary. It's possible your player needs service, but I think it is MUCH more likely there is some problem external to the player that is at work here. This might include wall power issues, ground loop interference, or, as you suggested, your UVerse box doing something funky.

It takes persistence to isolate a problem like this. As suggested, try Wifi vs. Ethernet into the OPPO. Also see if the networking related problems arise when you do NOT have the UVerse box connected to the HDMI Input. One very common source of weird problems is ground loop current that gets into your system via the wire that feeds wired TV signals into your house -- due to improper grounding where that enters your house. So try disconnecting that feed wire where it comes out of the wall and see if the problems magically go away.

Similarly, try disconnecting the player from your network (physically unplug the Wifi and Ethernet from it), and see if the problems happen with just the UVerse connected via HDMI.

There are known situations where the player can still crash of course -- it's a complicated beastie. But I don't know of ANY of them which require pulling the power plug to recover.

One very common source of weird problems is ground loop current that gets into your system via the wire that feeds wired TV signals into your house -- due to improper grounding where that enters your house. So try disconnecting that feed wire where it comes out of the wall and see if the problems magically go away.

Similarly, try disconnecting the player from your network (physically unplug the Wifi and Ethernet from it), and see if the problems happen with just the UVerse connected via HDMI.

There are known situations where the player can still crash of course -- it's a complicated beastie. But I don't know of ANY of them which require pulling the power plug to recover.

Thanks Bob, I'll certainly give this a try. One thing I have forgotten to mention (this just happened last night) - is that my problem has also occurred when I have used Netflix on my television (Panasonic ZT60 which has built in services/applications). I watched something on Netflix via the Panasonic in the hopes I would bypass any issues on the OPPO. After I exited the Netflix application on the Panasonic, the signal for my cable television was lost (with black screen). It is strange for sure. The television is hooked up via ethernet, the OPPO is using WiFi. My apartment building was only built in the past two years and it is considered a "luxury apartment" so I presume they have used the finest and most up to date wiring. I'll speak with OPPO and appreciate the feedback!

Out of interest, how many HDMI connected devices do you have?

I few months ago when I was testing a small 'nettop' computer, I noticed that when I connected it to my Onkyo amplifier, it played havoc with all my other HDMI connected devices. Even when it was switched off. Indeed, the same thing happened when I connected it to my Panasonic TV. For some reason, an 'always-on' signal was being sent by the 'nettop' computer which could not be switched off or idled (even in the BIOS), that over-riding my HDMI communication chain!

Maybe you have an HDMI switch, splitter, repeater or some other device that over-riding your HDMI communication chain?!

Quick question: can you purchase replacement (factory) remotes for the 103? I have a possible chance of picking up a 103 well under retail, but dude lost the remote frown.gif Can't seem to find any information on replacing this, and even if I can is the $$ worth it.

Parker in particular, and pretty much anything released by Sony.

If your resulted MKV files did not include the chapter settings that were present on the BR, then Cinavia will not kick in.
