You'll probably find some useful information within this dedicated Oppo BDP-83/93/95/103/105 DLNA/UPnP thread...

If your media player can convert the Dolby and DTS lossless formats to LPCM (which is still lossless - it's essentially the same as unzipping the contents form a zip file), you could send that through the Oppo's HDMI inputs. If you're otherwise happy with the user interface and such, that should give you a very usable solution. You just won't have the Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio lights lit on your receiver.

We all like to see those lights though... don't we.

Thanks for everyone's input and help. I'll begin some more research

We do, but what really matters is how it sounds. The lights being lit or not shouldn't make a difference in the final sound quality. Given that it wouldn't cost you anything and should be really easy to configure, it's worth giving it a try.

For example, if the studio changes the Internet name for their server older discs won't find it any longer.

The most recent example was a Sony disc just 2 years from its release date. Studios don't really care about BD-Live any longer.

Yes, I agree. It's basically just BS. I never thought about the server issue. But like you said I really won't be using it.

A few questions about the updated Netflix app on the Oppo 103


Do you get the option to Start at the Beginning or just Resume like Roku3 app?
What is the maximum bit rate? Does it go to 5800kbps 1080pHD?
How does the Oppo process the Non 5.1 sound which I think is mostly Dolby Pro Logic
Is it better to feed a Roku3 into a HDMI in? If it is, how will the Oppo treat the non 5.1 sound?

You just have Resume. Don't know about the bitrate. Oppo processes the non 5.1 sound as STEREO, whatever the source. Your AVR can get the stereo signal from the Oppo and process it as Dolby Prologic IIx if you like.

I was talking to a co-worker who is out of state, he owns a 93.
He was telling me about ISO files and how the 93 can play ripped blu rays directly from the hard drive.

Questions: Is it a big deal that it was taken away?? (the studios asked them to is what I was told)

Do 103-105 owners wish that this feature was still on the 103

I own a 103 Thanks!!

It was a big deal at the time.

"Asked" is not exactly the correct verb.

There has been no poll. Why do you ask?

I ask because this co-worker and I got into a light weight argument about it. He is all about the convenience, quick, no work, fastest way of doing something. And for me I'd rather have the Blu Ray disc in the Oppo for the picture AND the sound. He says the ripped blu rays off the hard drive are 100% identical. And it might be. In my opinion a copied, ripped, burned anything can never be a 100% duplicate of the source. 99% ??? Probably. But that's what we were talking about and it got a tad heated. And if it's 100% accurate (pic and sound) then great.

A simple ISO or BDMV copy is 100% the same, missing only the copy protection and region coding. That's why the studios don't allow it. Too easy to pirate their product.

We try to keep these threads specific to each OPPO player, by the way.

Thank you for answering the questions. I understand about "thread specific", BY THE WAY.
Geez

Any recommendations for wireless USB keyboards (preferably compact ones) that are compatible with the Oppo 103?
