They carried the OPPO BDP-93/95 models. How long ago was that?

Would you know what was changed in this version? TIA.

I never used the initial version but I know this one scans a whole hard drive and makes the required changes. It also can restore it back to its original state should you ever need to.

Roku also has the same problem.

The video is set to "Source Direct" to Lumagen Radiance VP on HDMI1. I also tried switching it to 1080p but the same issue.

I also called Netflix and they said there is no problem at their end and asked me to contact Comcast/Xfinity. Calling Comcast is useless.

So if Comcast is throttling then why PS3 is able to stream in HD resolution and oppo is scaled down to un-watchable SD stream?
Is Comcast throttling based on the device?

Has somebody experienced that same thing between different Netflix streaming devices?
It may be the software that each device is using to connect to Netflex......

Just contacted Oppo to see if THEY could downgrade the firmware to 38-1220 if I ship it back to them. It'd be worth it to me.
We'll see what they say...........

Last question - does anyone believe that the occasional loud pop / momentary audio loss I have been experiencing when streaming Netflix over wifi has anything to do with my audio going bitstream over an optical cable?

I had the same issue ( speaker popping ) using an optical connection. Changing to 7.1 analog out to my Onkyo receiver fixed the problem.

Having trouble playing MKV files now...... these are movie files that play on the PC (VLC player). but the Oppo won't play them. It see's the files and lists them but has 0 information and says file format not supported. Any ideas why?

More information, please.

Is this on local USB, network SMB or DLNA?

There are free utilities mediainfo and mkvinfo. Post the text report from either one for one of your problem files.

plus, were they ever working on your setup, and just stopped, or is this a new setup?

I play mkvs all the time through this player effortlessly..

I was really surprised to learn that recently too when I decided to seriously shop for a new BD player. I'd been planning on getting an Oppo, but had assumed that I would just order it direct. I happened to be in a Best Buy picking up a new gaming headset and decided to wander around the store a bit. I happened to be ogling the equipment in the Magnolia section when I noticed they had the 105. I asked about the 103 and they had it too. Bought it the next weekend. biggrin.gif

I'm a current owner of a BDP-93 and was thinking of upgrading to the 103. I was hoping people here could help me with some questions:

- Is there any way to play back rips of 3D blu ray's? I know .iso's aren't supported, but MakeMKV has a direct-rip 3D option. Does the 103 play those files, or anything like it?

- Can the 103 display PGS subtitles in .mkv files? The 93 definitely can not.

- Does the 103 support all audio tracks? My 93 locks up if I try to play files with DTSMA audio and some random others.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Yes to the last two. I'll have to check PGS over DLNA; there was an issue at one time. Local USB and SMB should be ok.

I'll let someone else handle 3D. I believe the answer is "yes" but there might be stipulations.

if you rip a 3d video, and save it as an MKV, and your tv is 3d,(obviously), yes, you can play 3d mkv's on the 103..

Thanks. I'd only be using USB and SMB anyway, so that's perfect.

I have a question about the lip sync with my OPPO 103 and my Pioneer Elite SC68.

I read all I can about the issue and understand about using OPPO's delay feature to get back in sync.

I'm just curious about what the cause is???

My OPPO is connected via split HDMI. Both HDMI connections go to the Pioneer.

When I watch a Blu Ray, I use HDMI 1. I do this because the video processing is on HDMI 1 only, right?

I read the manual, and saw that for Audio, DSD only goes through HDMI2. I wanted to use the Pioneer's processing of DSD material. So, if I listen to an SACD, I listen on a different input on my Pioneer.

When I watch a blu ray (HDMI1), I have a lip sync problem. It seems pretty consistent on all material.

I happen to have another Blu Ray player connected to my Pioneer. If I watch the same material there is no lip sync. Only from the OPPO.

I find myself obsessing whether I have the delay set just right..... I know that I shouldn't worry about it, but I am curious as to the cause.

I keep looking to see if I have any processing going on with the Pioneer or Oppo, but I think they are all turned off (or at least consistent between the input for both Blu Ray players).

Any ideas are appreciated.

I'm using HDMI2 into my 68 and have no lip sync problems with BDs unless there are problems inherent to the disk. I have only a single HDMI connection to my Pioneer. I am also on the latest firmware. You might want to try that.

Because HDMI does a slight amount of video processing (noise reduction) from the Oppo, this might be the source of the sync problems.

My lip sync issue is via HDMI 1. Since I use HDMI 2 only for SACD, I don't know if I have an issue. Interesting idea though. I'll watch something through HDMI 2 and see if there is a lip sync problem....

I have a Pioneer Elite VSX 70 and an Oppo 103 and have a lip sync issue with blu rays only and solved this using the Oppo AV sync function and finally finding the correct setting to use. The numbers go from -200 to +200.  It took a bit of trial and error but now it is good to go. No issues when watching DirecTv or Roku streaming.

You can find an A/V Sync Test in the Disney Wow disc and others. It's simple to use and you can see how far off the sync is and correct it.

Hi all,

I'm sure this may have been answered already but I was unable to find it. After a month of trying to get SMB shares to work with my new PC and 103, I gave up and took the advice of many of this forum and downloaded oShare.

This works great for streaming my Blu Ray rips from my Windows 7 PC to my 103.

One question I have is I have Letters From Iwo Jima ripped to MKV and while playing it on the Oppo, no subtitles show up even when I select the subtitle I want. Subtitles do show up on my PC so I am wondering if there is a setting on the Oppo or subtitles cannot be streamed this way.

Apologies if this has been addressed before. Many thanks.

The subtitles are probably PGS format (which is normal for Blu-ray) which at one time did not work over DLNA. I keep meaning to check this in the current firmware.

PGS does work over SMB and on local storage. Before that we would convert the subtitles to hidef VOBSUB (which in its standard def variant is normal on DVD), but that is a bit of work.

All I know about Windows is how to swear at it, but people do have success with SMB on Windows 7. Windows 8 seems even more troublesome for SMB.

Rather than fight it I would get a little NAS box. They usually have both SMB and DLNA.
