To check if the player is faulty, you'd need to move it to a different location -- away from whatever might be present in your listening room. Of course the surrounds should be completely silent when playing Stereo content unless you have DTS Neo:6 Mode enabled in the player. If the player is producing the noise itself, then that would be a warranty repair.

I guess it must have been some RFI from a neighbor's dimmer or something similar - my 103 is on a common wall. Today the surround outputs are dead silent as expected. Apartment living has its goods and others. Thanks for the suggestions.

Last time I checked, the Audio Theory forum here still had a Hum and Hiss FAQ posted. You might check there for suggestions on how to isolate the source of the RF and squelch it.

One possibility is that one or more of your "shielded" cables actually has a faulty shield (e.g., not making electrical contact from end to end), thus providing a path for RF to get into the player. Generally speaking, however, finding the source of the RF interference is usually the best tactic. It could be another device in your setup for example.

I just purchased a ne Sammy UN65F8000 on this past Monday. I hadnt had a chance to try a Blu ray til last night. The VQ is stunning, as expected....BUT the A/V sync was horrible. I adjusted it to 30ms but it wasnt perfect. I tried 40ms, but that seemed too much. I was set up with one HDMI into the AVR and then out to the TV. I tried using the split method and it was the same.... What should I attempt to remedy this?

Thanks!!

I end up tweaking the synch setting on the TV's settings first then blue ray and then AVR. I also notice some cable channels can be a bit off from others.... Just to keep us on our toes smile.gif

40msecs.... When I bought my LG 60PH660V to replace my Panasonic TH-46PZ81B (via HDMI 1), I had to set the 'A/V Sync' on my Onkyo TX-NR609 (via HDMI 2) to '200msec'. With the Panasonic it was '0msecs' eek.gif

You might try unplugging the actual cable connection to the cable box (while it is on) and see if that makes the hiss disappear. If so, you could try a cable ground isolator between the cable and the box and see if that helps. In my system, the surge protector has a big grounding knob and I connect the chassis of all components to it, creating a common ground for everything. I'm guessing your cable box's plug is 2 prong and not 3 prong? If so, a common ground for all components may help too.

^ I already have a isolator in the cable feed due to varying ground of the cable system. Every time they add someone they end up changing the ground. Really annoying.

^ Yeah, you might try a common ground for your whole setup if the cable box doesn't already have a 3-plug connector. It's a long shot, but the electronics in your cable box could be introducing a high frequency signal on its chassis.

Just received my 103. Would appreciate suggestions on best way to add to my current setup.

Right now everything is going into my receiver (Marantz 5007) and from there into a Darbee video processor then my Panasonic VT-50. Because the 103 puts out such a high quality video signal, should I include it in the chain or connect the 103's video output directly to the TV? If I include in the chain, would I use "Video Direct" as the output setting for the Oppo?

Thank you for your help and suggestions.

Steve

Generally, there is no benefit with bypassing the receiver for video, so a single HDMI connection through the receiver should be good enough. You will just want to change the receiver to Video Direct or similar to make sure that it does not do any additional video processing.

With Panny ZT60, have my Oppo set for 120 msec delay for the directly connected HDMI 1, and Oppo set to no delay for HDMI 2 connection to receiver. Both seemed to be synchronized last time I checked (usually just about always use HDMI 1 direct connect to the TV). Oppo HDMI 1 direct connect seems to be only component in my system where audio and video are out of sync.

Hello. Recent 103 owner and I'm having an issue with my player which so far I can't correct. And that is whenever the movie finishes playing, it starts all over again, rather than the player stopping. So far I have just played one Blue Ray (Disney's Haunted Mansion, several times with the same result) and more recently a DVD, The Last Stand. On both of these discs, the movie starts to repeat , rather than stopping when the film is over. I checked and re-read the section in the manual dealing with repeat playback, using the button on the remote, which has on-screen options like chapter repeat, disc repeat, etc., which can be scrolled thru with each press of the button on the remote, but there is no option which says something like "no repeat" or "repeat cancel." What might be going here? I have written to Oppo about this, but so far, they haven't offered me a solution. I never had a problem like this with my 83SE, which is now being used as an audio-only player in my 2-channel system. Thanks!

I don't recall anyone having your problem, but that doesn't mean much. If you don't hear by Monday you might want to call them. Many times they respond to emails over the weekend.

In the mean time you can always eject the disc when it's finished. That's probably what you did already. Some cleaver person may know a setting to change, but you may have a rare malfunction that needs repair. Does your new OPPO have the current firmware installed?

Yep. February firmware installed. That's about the first thing I did after hooking it up. I'm going to try some more discs over the weekend, but should the repeat options displayed on screen include the "no or do not repeat option?" I just bypassed the others and thought that if none were selected, it would tell the player NOT to repeat.

Well I am now a member of the Oppo Club.....and a happy one at that!! I took delivery of a BDP-103 this afternoon. I updated the firmware, went through all the menu options, calibrated the picture, and was watching Blu-Rays in under two hours. As I went through all the menu options I marveled at how logical, well thought out, and understandable the menu's were.....as well as the manual. Wow! Sure beats anything in my memory.

Picture quality was superb, Blu-Ray audio quality was superb, CD playback felt initially lean, but after a few hours of listening, the lower mids filled out, the hi end lost it's "tizz" and the soundstage width and depth grew and "congealed" into a "wall to wall" solid tapestry of music. Happy! Happy! Happy!

Summing it all up I can only say, "Thank You Oppo"

If you don't select a repeat option then there shouldn't be any form of repeat happening. I have the OPPO 93, but it shouldn't be different than the OPPO 103 in the general way that it works.

Some discs are authored as automatic start -- i.e., you don't get presented with a Top Menu first. Those discs WILL start over again on their own when they reach the end.

Other discs are authored to time out on Top Menu. If you don't do something for a while the disc exits Top Menu and starts the feature on its own.

The studios keep playing around with this stuff. I think they just get bored doing it the same way every time.

I have my player set to begin playback as soon as the drawer closes. Would this have anything to do with the "repeat" problem? I used my 83SE for over 2 years in my home theatre and never had a problem with a disc starting over once the feature had completed. Was I just lucky? I know that some discs start out with a gaggle of previews which can't be stopped without first using a sledge hammer. Are these the ones you're talking about? Strangely, on "Haunted Mansion" BD the top menu isn't available until the feature starts. How dumb is that?

Just curious. Are you listening to CDs thru the HDMI connection or from the analog outs? I know the 103 doesn't have the dedicated 2-channel outs that the 83SE has, so I'm assuming you're just using the front left and right RCAs. Correct? I'm also a Maggie owner, but just in my 2-channel system I have the 3.5s and feel that I should probably upgrade to 3.7s, but that's a lot of cash!

Yes the new improved 3.7i is a lot of money.....and a lot of love!

I am listening, at the moment thru HDMI. I will soon give the analogs a shot and see if it makes any difference for CD's. I need to wrap my head around how to include the sub in the "analog" wiring scheme. As it stands this moment, I wouldn't think the Oppo would have beens such an improvement over my PS3 (yeah I know, I know!) but it is much more more musical both "technically and musically".

Would you mind telling us more about your systems, you seem to have more than one. I am always a sucker for how we endeavor to enjoy our theater and music.

Magnepan 1.7's (LR)
Magnepan CC5/DWM (Center Channel)
Magnepan MC1's (Surrounds)
Rythmik F12 (Sub)
Emotiva UMC-1 (Processor)
Emotiva XPA-2 Gen2 Drives the 1.7's
Emotiva XPA-5 Drives the Center and Surrounds
Oppo BDP-103

The studios keep playing around with this stuff. I think they just get bored doing it the same way every time.

My first thought was that I have not run into one of the disks you're describing with our 83 and then with the 93. Then slowly out of the muck came the thought, "When was the last time you watched the credits to the bloody end?"

"Almost never." came the sharp reply. wink.gif
