As mentioned before, the only feature I'm currently missing is being able to send .MKV contained (and maybe FLAC) files from my Windows 8.1 PC to the Oppo. Apart from that the Windows 'Play To' option is pretty well featured wink.gif

I wonder if there's a way to alter the Windows registry to add support... Anyway, thanks for the suggestions guys...

I can certainly send .flac files from my computer to the Oppo by us oShare from my Windows 8.1 desktop over my wireless network. I don't use .mkv files so I can't comment on those.

So I have a hdmi loop problem on my 103-d; I'm thinking of resolving it by using the analog output on the oppo to deliver sound to the avr.

Are there any disadvantages to using analog 7.1 as opposed to hdmi?

Thanks,

MK

Yes and no. It depends on your AVR, your speakers, and your room. You are likely to be bypassing the surround processing in the AVR this way. The 103(d) has some pretty good processing capability of its own, but it is not what is available in a high-end AVR. In particular, the room correction and group delay capabilities of the processing applied by some AVRs would be missing. If your AVR does not do that stuff anyway, then you probably won't hear much difference. if your AVR does that stuff, but your room and speakers really don't need it, then you probably won't hear a significant difference. If, however, your AVR does those things and your room and/or speakers need the help...

Are you actually sending them by selecting them on your PC, or are you using oShare on your PC and choosing the files on your monitor using the Oppo remote?

I do this, too. But some people are looking for a way to select the files to be played on a PC so they don't have to turn on a monitor to do the selection. That's what pushing a file means.

Yes indeed.

And also, when you have a large collection, it is nice to have a better browsing/selection interface to use for doing searches, ad-hoc playlists, etc.

Hey all,

I'm thinking of getting a BDP-93 or 103, but I have a few questions. The reason I'm considering these is because of the high quality DAC in them, the other features don't really interest me all that much.

My AV32R-DP can't handle TrueHD or Master Audio, and I'd like these. I was considering hooking up both the 5.1 bypass and coax connections from the Oppo to the Tag McLaren but I want to only use the 5.1 bypass for discs that support these lossless formats, otherwise I'd prefer to use the DAC in the AV32R as it's better I believe (never heard the Oppo).

Is it possible to configure the device to do this automatically or would I have to manually do it each time? I know I'd have to manually change source on the AV32R but that's okay.

All outputs are all active on the player when in use (unless you tell it otherwise in settings).
So, you can use the 5.1 analog output AND the spdif (coax) output at the same time, just simply switch the source input on your Tag manually when you want to switch back and forth.

I have no idea how good the Tag's DAC is, but think you will be quite pleased with how the 103 sounds. It's actually pretty good.

Thanks man, that's good to know. The Tag, even though it hasn't been made in a decade of so now, is still considered one of the best receivers out there for it's DACs.

I am still looking for an App, which allows to remote control the Oppo and allow me access to shares and play them via the Oppo. The OppoMedia App is something but it works only with local USB drives, connected directly to the Oppo and not network drives.

To explain this in more detail: I would like to play Music from my DLNA network shares to the Oppo and control this - choose the e.g. music - via an Android App.

I can do this with my AVR -

Stop, the solution just comes to my mind: A DLNA Server App on Android.This might work. I just tried playing music from an Android phone connected to the same LAN/WiFi network than the Oppo. This worked flawlessly.
The DLNA Server App showed the Oppo 103 as a media renderer but also listed all other DLNA sources in the network. I haven't tried it yet but following the logic of media source and media renderer, this DLNA App might be able to initiate playing files from a media source to a media renderer.
FYI, I was using the 'Bubble DLNA Server' from GooglePlay store. There are other DLNA server Apps in the store which might do as well. I haven't tried. I will post results here.

I personally do exactly this using the Mediahouse app on my android tablet, I select my pc's ps3 media server, then my oppo 103d as the play-to device, browse my files and play them one at a time or I can set them up in a queue.
There is a free version of it, so no harm in trying it out.

There are other apps out there just search UPNP\DLNA and you should find a fair selection.

This may be a silly question, but I was wondering if the 7.1 audio out from the oppo 103 is superior to the HDMI out. I also have an Onkyo TX NR818 and am just trying to get the best audio and video. From the replies I am reading it seems best to use the video processing of the Oppo and sending one HDMI out to my TV and then sending the audio to the Onkyo for audio processing. What are your thoughts??

If you have a capable receiver it is best to let the Oppo handle the video and the receiver to handle the audio. If the receiver is much older, then the Oppo may be the better option for both.

HDMI 1 for video and HDMI 2 for audio I believe. I am not an expert with the Oppo as I have just received mine but have read quite a bit of the threads here on the Oppo. Let the experts chime in too.

There can be several reasons to use analog audio, like if you have an older avr that doesn't accept hdmi.
Some people also like to use analog audio no matter what, but when you do, it's best to have a well treated room for sound.
With modern AVRs, they use special digital sound correction software like Audyssey, and if you have such a capable device,
then it's best for most people to use that software to get the best sound from audio via HDMI.
In your case I would recommend using the hdmi for audio. The TX-NR818 is made specially for that type of configuration.

There's no need to use both HDMI outputs unless you have a specific need to. Some examples where you may need to:

1) You have a display that's 3D capable, but your AVR isn't.

2) You have an AVR that doesn't have a video passthrough mode or still does some amount of video processing even when in passthrough mode.

3) You have an AVR that can process DSD (the 103's HDMI1 output can't pass DSD, the 103D does not have this limitation).

In these cases, it makes sense to send the Oppo's HDMI1 output to the display, the Oppo's HDMI2 output to the AVR, and configure the Oppo for split A/V. In most other cases, just send the Oppo's HDMI1 output to the AVR, the AVR's HDMI output to the display, and configure the AVR for video passthrough mode on the input the Oppo is connected to in order to keep things as simple as possible.

If I got the Oppo 105, would it have better video and audio processing vs my Onkyo? Should I run the Onkyo out to the Oppo and then back?

3) You have an AVR that can process DSD (the 103's HDMI1 output can't pass DSD, the 103D does not have this limitation).

In these cases, it makes sense to send the Oppo's HDMI1 output to the display, the Oppo's HDMI2 output to the AVR, and configure the Oppo for split A/V. In most other cases, just send the Oppo's HDMI1 output to the AVR, the AVR's HDMI output to the display, and configure the AVR for video passthrough mode on the input the Oppo is connected to in order to keep things as simple as possible.

Ok thank you GSR

It will only have better ANALOG audio. ...and again, in your case hdmi digital audio would probably be your best choice.
When it comes to digital audio and video processing, the 103 and 105 are virtually identical. So the best choice for you would most likely be the 103.

The only audio advantage for HDMI2 is that it can send DSD signals to your AVR. You only get DSD from SACDs. And you lose the ability of your AVR to apply room correction such as Audyssey when DSD signals are coming in.
