Issue Playing Movies from HDD or Tunmbdrive
I have had my 103 for almost 2 years. During that time I have been able to play movies via the USB port with no issue. For about the last month or so I have been having a problem with movies on my HDD and two different Thumbdrives losing picture and the screen showing what we used to call snow in the analog days.
I have done a firmware upgrade recently but this issue predates the last update. I cannot tie the issue to a previous update although it is possible.
I updated and didn't reset to factory values immediately, however in an effort to correct the issue I have reset the unit, no improvement.
I have tried USB port on the front and back of the unit. HDMI inputs do not have this issue, nor do actual DVD or Bluray disc.
The issue occurs at various intervals but sometimes as often as every 3-4 minutes. To correct I have to stop the movie then restart it, it has not failed to start and work fine for the next time interval.
Movies I have played many times before are doing this. I am using the 103 as the hub, no preamp just source component (cable box, HDD, Thumbdrive)>Oppo 103> Amps/Projector.
It appears I am going to need to send the unit in for repair but i thought I would ask for recommendations here first.
Any ideas as to how to correct this are appreciated.
