^ Most likely it didn't seat properly on the drive spindle so it was unbalanced. This can happen if the disc has a center hole which is a bit smaller than standard. If it's a one time thing, don't worry about it.

There are other forums out there where these things are discussed in more detail

hi-res prices for up-sampled crap.
Can you point us to those forums? I am interested (and have even purchased some HDTracks downloads...)

Dear All,

Looking for advice on MKVMERGE. I'm using the GUI of this program to convert m4v files to mkv, however the process is a bit slow, I'm having to manually select each file to convert. Would anyone happen to know a batch command that i could use to convert multiple m4v files in one go (all m4v file in same directory). I have experience use dos batch files but i'm a bit lost with with MKVMERGE. Should also say all i want to do is convert the file, i don't need it modified in any other way.

Thanks

John

Not really an OPPO topic, but...

Command line mkvmerge is just:

Code:
mkvmerge -o new.mkv old.m4v
That should copy everything in the original, but run some tests to be sure. A little scripting and you can run large batches.

I have made interconnects and compared interconnects, same with power cables. Not that I have done extensive testing, but thorough testing. I have found solid core to consistently sound better and minimal insulation to sound better and no shielding to sound better.

Certainly for what I consider great entry level cables, I suggest Audio Quest Evergreen or Tower. Have not tried Tower as Evergreen was the least expensive when I did my testing. They do still have the shielding, and more insulation than I would like, but I have tested them against my Morrow Audio MA-2's which I really like and while the MA-2's are in a different league, the AQ showed just how good they are for the money. I have tested a lot of budget stuff and these are really good for the money.

I have compared the Evergreen to the Blue Jeans Cables which tend to be recommended. I compared againt the BJC 1505F cables and 1694A and also compared the 1694A as a digital cable to others. The 1694A sounded better thant the 1505F as an analog cable, but the 1694A is quite stiff. I found both of these cables to sound rather bad as analog or digital cables. Although they are certainly well constructed. I do also use BJC for RF stuff and eventually plan to try their Ethernet cables.

The entry level (well, the current entry level digital cable is different, certainly name and color, than what I have) AQ digital cable totally blows the 1694A away. Now the BJC HDMI cables are another story. I did compare the series FE againt AQ Pearl and was concentrating on sound more than picture. I do not remember the picture being different, but the sound was slightly to significantlly better for the BJC. The system I was comparing on was not very revealing.

Morrow Audio does make cheaper cables than the MA-2, which I did try. I did not have the break-in done on them and out of the box, they did not sound better than what I was comparing to. I just did not think they would change enough to wait even though Morrow goes to great lengths to explain that they have to be broken in. Mike suggested I try the MA-2 with the break-in service which I really liked and these are my reference cables now. They connectors on mine are different than what is offered now. I recommend them, also. Great service.

I think it would help with your search if you stated what your budget is.

Before they get started again... PLEASE take any cable debates to the appropriate audio theory / cable forum - they don't belong in this thread.

Okay.

Rather than just give the answer entry level AudioQuest, I try to explain why I am giving this answer. No intention to start a debate. Also being aware when I posted that this was a question about cables in the 103 thread.

kellybob,

Thanks for the great reply. It's much appreciated.

The reason I posted in this forum, is that 99% of the people out there use HDMI for their Bluray Player. I figured the Oppo thread, most, or at least half, use RCA's for their audio cables.

Not trying to start a debate. I wanted OPPO USERS opinions.

If you're not in the esoteric power cord, speaker wire, and interconnect group then shopping at AVS sponsors Monoprice and BlueJeans makes a lot of sense.

I figured there was a specific reason you posted the cable question here. I pointed out that this was a cable question, but left the other out. I saw no need for the pre-emptive post. I was thinking the post was more directed at me personally due to other posts, but also left this out.

My point now is that I was not pointing at you for posting perhaps an inappropriate for the thread post. That is all.

My pre-emptive post was an attempt to ward off the start of the usual debate that typically starts after a post that talks about differences in cables. There was nothing wrong with your post as you were simply answering a question with your opinion. But we don't need several hundred replies debating whether your opinion is right or not - those posts belong elsewhere.

I have some rather too fancy .ass subtitles that my player doesn't show perfectly. Usually, it'll be fine, but if there's some text on the screen that needs to be translated, the player will show only that and not show the dialogue subtitles at all. I find myself missing rather large bits of dialogue like this.

Does anyone know of a solution? Getting better/simpler subs don't seem to be possibe, I'm afraid.

Are they ANSI or UTF-8 formatted?

What exactly is wrong with your external .ass subtitles?

Have you tried re-muxing them into the .mkv container along with your video and audio file?

I don't know if there's anything wrong with them that isn't wrong with a lot of other fan-made subtitles. The problems come when my Oppo chooses to show only the translation of some screen text while leaving out all the dialogue subtitles.

I've tried to mux the subs into the mkv with one episode. I won't be turning on my projector again for the next two or three hours though.

MKVmerging it did not help. Brought a couple of other issues with it, actually.

Could you attach one of the subtitle files, or a edited subset of one that demonstrates the problem? I'll test it with some other video.

So attached. Around the ten minute mark the one guy tells the other about the three rules of being a mangaka; only the rule numbers show up while there's a lot of dialogue going missing. It works fine in VLC, but not on the Oppo.

Ok, thanks.

I see some notes in the text. Did you annotate the subtitles for testing?

I see border and font directives around that area too.

I'll try to have a look at this tomorrow.

I haven't touched them at all.

I've put subs on quite a number of Blu-rays and I don't think I've ever downloaded a subtitle track this intricate.

Quick question : when viewing photos is there a way to show the GPS location info which is embedded in the photo? I have tried the info button and the green button, but both are not showing it.
I would also like to know if there is a quick way to show the name of the photo on the screen? (besides stopping the slide show of course)

So I wish to speak of herasey for a while if I may. If someone, mentioning no names, had decided to chop in their Oppo (as in selling it on) and replace it with something else, what should they be looking at as a replacement?

Mits 73835, Denon X4000, Emotiva UPA5 (triggered), Wharfedale Pacific Evo 40s, CS, 10s, PC DX12 sub, the internet, a NAS drive, a TiVo Series 3 and a Sony BDPS6200. There's also a Wii, but we don't talk about that...
