Is there a way on the Oppo 103 to see the AVERAGE video and audio bitrates of a Blu-Ray disc ?
When hitting the info button I can only see the CURRENT video bitrate (audio bitrate is not even visible)

No. I don't recall anyone asking for this before. Wouldn't you have to read the entire disc to find that average? Or do you mean "average to this point"?

That's really more of an HTPC analysis issue, such as you find in other title specification threads here.

I dont have a Bluray reader on my PC, otherwise I could just see this info with "Media Player Classic" for example.
Was wondering if the Oppo had this option...

Wouldn't you have bitrate 'til this point then? You'd have to scan the entire presentation to get the real average.

Could also project it via the total size of the main feature vs. the elapsed time, giving you an overall average.

I've had my oppo 103 for awhile and have never had any issues, but I mostly just play Bluray disks. Today I tried playing a .mkv file using a usb flash drive in the front usb port. There was some major lipsync, so I'm wondering if this is normal when using a flash drive or if something else might be going on?

No, they should be the same. Have you tested the file on other devices?

"Media player classic" just gives the average bitrate of a digital file. I have not been able to test this with a Blu-ray disc yet, since I don't have one in my PC.
How can I find out the total size of the main feature?

I just installed VLC on my computer so I could play the .mkv file, and it looks like it has some lip sync delay too. I guess I'll try a different .mkv file in the Oppo, as it looks like there isn't anything wrong on the Oppo's side.

dvdbeaver.com reviews new DVDs and BluRays, often comparing versions from different reguions. Their reviews show graphs of the bitrate through the length of the main feature, e.g. this review of The Grand Budapest Hotel:

There are a couple of things you should probably do as part of a firmware update when you have a region mod. First, make sure your player is set to its 'home' region and not to some other one. So, if you live in Region A territory, be sure you have set your player to that Region. Second, it is probably advisable to do a factory reset after the firmware update and then re-enter your personal settings. Finally, I have found that sometimes after a firmware update the region mod seems particularly sensitive to the timing of the entry of the key presses on the remote necessary to change regions. The first time I make a region change after a firmware update sometimes takes a couple of tries. It will subsequently be fine. The experience may be different on your particular mod.
You do know that you can backup and restore your settings? That is made so you dont have to re-enter your settings everytime after a factory reset.

Yes, I am aware of it. Some people, though, have not updated their firmware to a version that supports it.

Question BDP-103 SACD/DSD play back issue

I have a 103 with the latest firmware connected via HDMI to an Integra DHC 80.3. Redbook cd and Blu-ray play fine SACD and DVD-A do not. This did play fine at one time and I don't listen to digital music much, I'm a vinyl guy.


When I view the disc through the OSD it appears to be playing and is recognized as a SACD via DSD but no sound.


Any input would be greatly appreciated.

^ The most likely explanation is that you are mistakenly listening to audio on the Optical or Coax digital audio output instead of via HDMI audio. Check your audio input selection in the Integra.

For SACD playback, also set SACD Output PCM and see if you get audio via HDMI to the Integra.

I know this doesn't belong on this Thread but I don't like the new version of AVS. I don't know why they keep having to mess up a good thing? I had my AVS link setup to go directly to the subscribed threads and then the latest unread post. I can't seem to find a way to do that with this new version. I used to have it setup to read the latest posts at the top as well and can't find that as well in order to change it. Maybe they want us to start paying for AVS 'cause I see the "Get Premium" all over the place. I may not be reading these posts as often because of all these changes?

No problem. FWIW the Dune also supports 3-4 TB drives with current firmware.

There should be no problems with a 4TB external drive.

I'm not sure if this has been covered before, but I was hoping someone who's tackled it more extensively might be able to give me a pointer. With my IR-prone ZT60, I absolutely need a way to rely upon a screensaver when using Netflix. I've heard that some products (AppleTV, Roku) have screensavers that activate independently of the app currently loading, Netflix included (I've also read about problems where it works for every app but Netflix on these same devices). Is a Roku stick my only means to attaining this functionality on the Oppo BDP-103 and for those who have the Roku, are you able to use a screensaver while Netflix is running? If I could simply disable video output with the push of a button on the Oppo remote without the need of Roku, that would also be a suitable alternative (I'm thinking that's not possible based on past experience with Netflix and Oppo).

The screensaver in Netflix works on my 105. Not sure, but you might be able to blank video with the Pure Audio button.

That's interesting. The Pure Audio button doesn't override the Netflix output unfortunately. Haven't reset the settings on the latest firmware update, so maybe I'll try that first.

If I could simply disable video output with the push of a button on the Oppo remote without the need of Roku, that would also be a suitable alternative (I'm thinking that's not possible based on past experience with Netflix and Oppo).
The screensaver in Netflix works on my 105. Not sure, but you might be able to blank video with the Pure Audio button.
To be absolutely clear, are you referring to the Netflix screensaver, one that shows a red screen with the Netflix logo randomly bouncing around, or the Oppo screensaver (I have mine set to default to no video output). I have not had the chance to reset and test again (I am currently doing an exhaustive slide/pixel flipping session to get rid of longstanding IR). If anybody with a 103 on the latest firmware can confirm or deny these results, it would also be helpful.

I've heard that some products (AppleTV, Roku) have screensavers that activate independently of the app currently loading, Netflix included (I've also read about problems where it works for every app but Netflix on these same devices). Is a Roku stick my only means to attaining this functionality on the Oppo BDP-103 and for those who have the Roku, are you able to use a screensaver while Netflix is running?

The new Netflix app has no screensaver at all, nor is one available or possible in the Oppo. Previous Netflix app had a 1/2 brightness screensaver that kicked in after a while, but not this one. So you're best off to just hit the Home button and exit Netflix, then let the Oppo screensaver kick in. I guess Netflix decided that plasma TVs are unworthy of consideration.
