After setup, I successfully updated the firmware to the latest release.


I noticed in the firmware update instructions here it says to reset the player (factory reset?) after updating the firmware then re-enter your settings. Can I use the backup I saved on the thumb drive to restore my settings after an update/reset or do I have to manually go in a reset my settings?


Thanks.
I use a small 2GB thumb drive to keep my OPPO .cfg file and for any Beta FW versions I want to manually install. The latest time your save the OPPO's configuration will be on the thumb drive. Just make sure to update it when you do a Factory Reset.

Yes, that's the primary use of the backup.

If you have WPS on, that is more apt to be broken into than WPA2. So to take the steps you and Viper have taken is good, but set the security to the least vulnerable.
Wireless is more or less a rather new addition to my mostly wired ethernet. Got an iPod a few months ago and added an AirPort Express for it. Went with WPA2 when I set that all up. But those two new devices really did seem to be the catalyst(s) for quite a bit of extra chaos until I first switched everything possible to manual IP addresses, which cleared most issues up, and then like I mentioned subsequently (just recently) switched everything over to static DHCP addresses (aside from routers and bridge), which seems to have made it all better now.

But I see the point you were trying to make. Haven't really explored the AirPort Express as much, but now that the wired part is pretty well nailed down, will probably be playing with it a bit in the near future to see what's what of the things that hadn't quite gelled yet last time I looked (when I made sure it was not also set up to be serving DHCP).

Sufficed to say, the Oppo 1xx range of players are not limited to playing just 2 channel Flac audio files. Multi-channel Flac audio files can also be played

And if the Flac files contain meta-data, including a cover image. The Oppo's will display this too...

Hello, I am a new owner of a BDP-103. My question is, I have myOPPO HDMI 1 out going to my Pioneer VSX-23TXH receiver. I havean HDMI 1.3 cable run from the receiver to my Samsung TV. My receiver onlysupports HDMI 1.3a. I do not have a 3D TV, and it is not 4K. I have read thatit is recommended to use a HDMI 1.4 cable from the OPPO to the TV. Will it makea significant difference if I run an HDMI 1.4 cable from the OPPO HDMI 1 to theTV and the HDMI 2 out from the OPPO to my receiver? Or is the HDMI 1.4 just an advantage if I had a 3D TV. To do thisis quite a job since my wires are run through the wall. It requires cutting outand replacing a horizontal strip of drywall over the fireplace. Thank youin advance for your comments.

There is no such thing as an HDMI 1.4 Cable. Cables are now either classified as standard or high speed. Then cable features are added, Ethernet, etc. previously certified 1.3 cables are high speed. You will not see a difference.

I contacted Oppo directly back in April of this year, and got this response:

The player does not support 3D MKV. This is something that we are trying to get supported in our player, but so far our decoder manufacturer has not been too interested in supporting this format.
If they've added that support since then, they haven't told anyone. But you're right, MVC is not the same thing as 2D to 3D conversion, because the image is not re-compressed into MVC. You might e-mail them and ask.

I have my systems mostly wired as well, although my main machine is wireless. You did right by setting static IP addresses, whether manual or served by DHCP; it seems most devices, especially streaming or multi media are much happier with a static address. It doesn't affect security, but it does (IMO) make the system more stable. Wireless is so convenient though, which is why choosing a good encrypter is a good step.

DHCP also works with wired, it is the most common way to get / use IP addresses. As for security, WPA2 with the most amount of encryption keeps me happy at night. Along with a good firewall and tuning like limiting access to MAC addresses can lock away most nefarious characters.

One other option when using the DHCP without having to set a static is to change the lease time on the IP address. It is defaulted to one day (1440 minutes) on routers but you can change it to a much higher number in effect for multiple weeks.

Thought about doing that, as I noticed that the attached devices are still renewing their leases every 1440 minutes and possibly going offline each time they renew it (I don't actually know if any of them actually go offline or not or if they are all well-behaved and renewal all happens transparently). At least their IP addresses are staying put.

Think I just need to be certain with the PC as her going offline briefly while working from home the other day was not good, so if it just happened to be DHCP related would want to eliminate that possibility altogether. A week or two lease should pretty well cover it though, since that PC isn't on for more than a day or two at a time.

I have my iTunes music library shared so I can play any songs oon my iphone. I was wondering if I cam then stream from the iphone to my Oppo 103?
I tried using the Media Control App but it seems like it can only access some song files that are directly stored on the phone. I was thinking like on the youTube App. you can tell it to stream directly to the Oppo, TiVo, etc.


I know this is somewhat indirect vs streaming directly from the PC to the Oppo, but I think if I can get this to work then the interface on the iphone is a little nicer, seeing album artwork, playlists etc.
But if there is a better way t o get an iitunes interface directly to the Oppo, I'll listen.


thanks

I updated the firmware a couple of days ago to BDP10X-77-0827 and am having a new weird problem with DVDs now. The player vibrates terribly and it is LOUD - makes watching DVDs unbearable.


Blu-rays and CDs are fine. I was watching the same DVD the day before the firmware change and it was fine (old season of NCIS). Pretty odd...


Any ideas? Is it just me?


Thanks.

You can get an adapter that will connect to your iPhone and the other end will have an HDMI output that
should be able to plug into the HDMI input of the Oppo 10x players.
A couple people I know have tried this with success and I have an adapter that goes between my iPad and
Oppo player it also works pretty good. I haven't thoroughly tested every aspect of it, but the limited testing I did do worked.
If you try this route, just be careful what you buy. Cheaper knock-off adapters will usually not work as well
or at all compared to official Apple adapters/devices.

More than likely it is not the firmware, but probably just a coincidence that the problem is occurring around the same time.
There could be several reasons for this problem, and assuming that the video and audio are still playing normally,
there is probably an issue with the drive having something like a stuck rental sticker, or an issue with the disc itself
that may have stickers on it causing an unbalanced spin, ot possibly the center hole of the disc could be slightly
off center. If BDs and CDs are fine, and the a/v is normal outside of the player having a vibrating sound,
it's almost certainly the disc itself. Have you tried other DVDs? (preferably from a different set of movie entirely).
Do they also have a vibrating issue? It's also possibly that not having the issue when playing the disc previously
could have just been sheer luck, and the problem with the disc just didn't occur at that time.

I replaced my Harmony 890 universal remote with a 900. Now the image on my screen is shrunken and I can't find where the signal is being downsized. With no signal to the projector, its image fills the screen. So it doesn't appear to be the culprit. But a DVD or Netflix image is roughly 7/9 as wide. Turning off the OPPO pushes the AV receiver (Yamaha 773) to output its default screen, which is also shrunk 7/9ths. The OPPO zooms within that shrunken boundary. It is set to output 1080p, the projector's resolution. I haven't found any controls on the receiver that would alter the image; it's set for image pass-thru. So what could suddenly be altering the image? Could a faulty HDMI handshake cause a negotiated resolution reduction? I'd think the projector (Panasonic 8000) would expand a, say, 720p signal to fill the screen.

So, any ideas on what I could try to resolve this?
kendo70433's Avatar kendo70433 06:18 PM 11-21-2014
Never mind. I found it, in the one component I thought wasn't the problem. The projector had gotten set to S16:9 instead of 16:9.

While I was getting the new remote to work, I initially had the wrong Mini System selected for the OPPO. So the remote was blasting out random commands. For example, the down arrow for OPPO menu navigation was changing the projector's input to HDMI 3.

No, wired. There are wireless bridges out there too, but I have no idea what might or might not work.
Other options include things like the Apple Airport Express which IS wireless.
I have no experience with that product though.

I have owned the Sony 6200 Blu Ray 4K Upscaling model and returned it due to freezing issues that I and many have reported...exchnged for the Sony 7200 Blu Ray 4K Upscaling model (and all has been well with this unit)..now thinking of exchanging that model for an Oppo . Am I crazy? I need your opinions.
My home theatre consists of :
Sony 65 inch XBR 4K 850A display...Sony's new 4K media player the FMPX10 so I can get actual 4K content(movies in 4K/Netflix in 4K,etc)...Lexicon MC12 processor/pre-amp....Sunfire Signature 500 watt 5 channel amp...Aerial Acoustics speakers (Front L/R...Center...Surrounds L/R)..Velodyne Sub...all cables are : Monster/Audio Quest/MIT).
Any significant difference I will notice with an Oppo either the 103 or 103D models that I will notice to spend the extra bucks?
I realize this is an Oppo thread so many may be partial to Oppo and I don't know if I will get an honest,non-biased opinion but I thought I would try.

Thanks for your input. I thought it would be weird for the firmware to cause anything like this but you never know. The DVD plays fine in another player, but the Oppo doesn't like two different discs from this season (critical commentary ? ). I'll keep trying to find a solution.

They don't go off line when the lease is renewed. A lease is just a time for the DHCP server to check whether you're still alive. If you are, the lease is renewed and you keep the IP address. If the server decides you're not around anymore, it puts the address back in the pool to be reused when someone asks for an address.

If you renew the lease that happens in the background, is just paper pushing, has no impact on your IP address, etc.

If you shut down your computer, go away for a few weeks, etc. The lease time is exceeded and the IP address goes back into the address pool. The next time you connect, the DHCP server looks for an address for you. Earlier DHCP servers were pretty dumb about it and would give you whatever is available. Current DHCP servers will try to give you back the address you had before if it's still available.

Home networks have such a low number of clients, that it's almost (but not completely) guaranteed to get your old address back. So the lease / renew process is mostly transparent to the user. If you really want to be guaranteed an IP address, simply reserve one that you want within the router's address range and every time the router sees you, it will give you that address. Simple.

So no worries (usually) about the lease time. It is usually a good practice for a DHCP server to touch base every now and then to make sure all of its clients are really alive. If you have guests come over and they all hook onto your network with their iPhones, you may not want to have their leases hanging around for two weeks.

Ok, thought probably that was the case. Already have everything static DHCP in the router, so everything is fixed in place at this point. No more flakiness that I can tell. (Will cross the guests bridge when get to that.)

As for the low number of home network clients, let's just say that even just the handful of them several years back was more than enough for DHCP to get things all mixed up and it was not unusual for two devices to end up with the same IP address after a time. Think part of that was when clients went into sleep mode they still thought they had a certain address, but some other device grabbed it out from under them when the HDCP lease expired, so when the sleeping one awoke there were two clients using same address. Manual IP addresses mostly helped keep that from happening, but when there were two or more non-manual, non-static DHCP addresses all bets were off. (And Roku can't't be set for Manual IP, so there was going to always be at least one potentially misbehaving client to deal with. With static DHCP, though, even that one is now taken care of.)

For the life of me I cannot connect my iMac from my Oppo 103 via my Time Capsule.

The Oppo sees it, but when I enter my shortname, name with space, Mac's name in Sharing, keeps telling me username and/or password is wrong.

SMB is turned on. Any ideas?
