A couple issues with the 103.
First, I created a Blu Ray rip transcoded to a 3.5 GB M4V and the file plays fine with VLC directly on Windows and Linux. However, I put the file on my MediaTomb DLNA server (also the Linux box) and when I tried to access it with the 103 the first time, I got a message to the effect the file type was not valid and the player skipped to the next video in the list. (I found out later the issue was with MediaTomb not handling the file correctly and presenting it as 0 length.) Problem is, when I went back to try the file again, the 103 hung and had to be power cycled to recover. I also noticed when the player hung, the video output of the player started to jitter. Now, when I simply step through the video list to that file, the player will hang when trying to read the metadata. The problem cause is on the MediaTomb server, but the 103 should handle it more gracefully.
Enter problem #2
The jitter problem that started above is now a permanent "feature" of the player. Whenever I power up the player cold, the video is fine for a few minutes but then the jitter starts. I tried resetting to factory defaults but that didn't work, and it now looks more like a hardware problem. It may have been purely coincidental that this jitter started after trying to access the video, but in the time I've owned the 103 the video output has been fine - never a glitch.
I also tried connecting a Roku box and my cable box to the same HDMI cable the 103 uses and they work fine so the problem is originating in the 103.
I'm running the latest firmware and the problem is on HDMI-1 out. Before anyone asks, I haven't tried HDMI-2 out yet.
I reported these problems to OPPO tech support last night but haven't heard back yet. Has anyone else experienced the "jitter" I'm experiencing?
