I know that you're using a Windows-type folder/subfolder structure. When you're using the Oppo's Music function to view a display of the music files within a folder, any of those files that've been put into a Playlist will have a check-mark in front of its name. Highlight that file, and press the "Option" button on the Oppo remote. At the bottom of the display screen, one of the listed options will be "Remove".

The same procedure also applies with an actual Playlist displayed.
Thanks for the info!!

I just hope the next OPPO comes with a cassette and 8-track player. I want to listen to some of my old tapes.

You've touched on an interesting point. I wonder what the future holds if the advancements are as great from the 8 track to present BD player delivery. Will they look at the BD player with the same chuckle I have when thinking of the 8 track

Doesn't the netflix app from the Oppo output 24HZ as well?

No, the Netflix app embedded in the Oppo menu does not output 24Hz, all I've ever gotten out of it is 1080p/60.

The Netflix app on the Roku Stick yes, it will output 24Hz.

Sorry... I mis-remembered the details.

When viewing a music-file list, highlighting any file -- whether it has a Playlist check-mark or not -- and then pressing the Option button, gives you the choice of "Music Info", "Add To Playlist", "Go To Playlist", or "Gapless Play".

Once in the Playlist, the Options are "Music Info", "Remove", and "Remove All".

Thanks. Time to move on and do a comparison between the Tivo Roamio and the Roku stick then I guess to see which one's better. I hope one or the other will have a way to display the stream resolution which the Oppo does when you press the info button.

Which one do you prefer?

Thanks for the clarification, it might have taken me a while to figure it out. I hope all is well with you in SoCal!!

Wow this is interesting. I never knew you could create a playlist from your SMB shares. I have to try this out.

This is one of the things I disliked about the Oppo, and also the fact that you can't shuffle.

Using the embedded Netflix app in the Oppo menu will display the Netflix debugging stream info.

Using the Netflix app on the Roku Stick will not show the stream info, pressing Info will display the input/output video resolution/audio format that the Oppo senses on those ports.

The TiVo does show the Netflix debugging stream info.

I almost always use the TiVo Netflix app since it's on the device I use on a daily basis to watch regular TV. While I do have the Oppo operating daily it's for the video processing of the TiVo and DirecTV feeds. The TiVo also seems to be the quickest to a full 1080 stream resolution than the other methods, usually it starts right off at 1080 while the others will ramp up to that resolution taking 15-45 secs to do so. The ramp up speed can depend largely on the quality of your Internet connection and who the provider is, whether they have a peering agreement with Netflix or are an Open Connect partner is a big factor in the quality of the stream.

The Tivo also has Vudu(as does the Oppo) and Amazon which are really the only other two video streaming providers I use.


So,

1080p/24Hz from Netflix on the Roku stick - no stream data info
1080p/60Hz from the embedded Netflix app - stream data info available
1080p/24Hz from Netflix on the TiVo - stream data info available

All 3 sources will pass Dolby Digital Plus audio.

No part of my AV system is networked or connected to the Internet... so someone else'll have to chime in about how the Oppo's "Music" playback functionality works with networked devices.

Both scannerman and I are using USB hard drives connected directly to the Oppo, with WAV music files stored on the drives in a typical Windows folder/subfolder-type arrangement.

One major caveat with the Oppo Music playback system is that within any individual drive, only one playlist can be created. So in my setup, I have my USB drive divided into several genre-specific partitions, allowing me to create one playlist for each genre.

??? Sure you can.

The ability to have the Oppo perform either "Random" or "Shuffle" playback of all of the files within any specific folder on a connected drive -- or within a Playlist -- has been in place for at least the past eighteen months... and is, for me, one of its most valuable features.

On my USB drive, each musical genre's partition has two main folders: "Albums" and "Tracks". The "Albums" sub-folder structure is Artist Name > Album Name > WAV files. The "Tracks" folder has no sub-folders, and contains all of my favorite tracks from every album within that genre. Being able to play those "Tracks" files for hours and hours, via "Shuffle", affords me the best genre-specific "radio stations" I've ever heard!

Again... I have no idea whether or not that sort of functionality extends to devices connected to the Oppo via network.

Edit: I just checked, and apparently "Shuffle" and "Random" are completely possible. See page 41 in the latest revision of the Users Manual. According to the info on page 24, though, Playlists can only be created on external USB storage devices.

I would assume you feel that the video processing of the Oppo is better then using your AVR?


I have an Anthem MRX-500 that is connected to my DIRECTV Genie (via HDMI)...really never thought about using the Oppo to process video from the Genie.......

Thanks. Like you, I use the Netflix app on my TiVo instead of the 103 because the TiVo is the device i use most often in my home theater. Also, I use a Yamaha RX-V3900 as my primary sound processing device. Thus, I use the 103 only to play discs, which it does brilliantly.

Thanks to advice from you and others I chose the 103 because it could easily accept a JVB Digital all regions chip. This allows me to play BDs regardless of their region code. I have had both my 103 and JVB Digital all regions chip for two years and both have performed flawlessly.

Well I finally broke down and got a 103D for the theater, retiring my 93 to the great room. I was really intimidated by the Darbee since there were no real instructions. I didn't realize it was basically a simple slider. Once that 'light' went on I was able to experiment and currently have it on 75. I tried 100 but that was too aggressive with noticeable artifacts. It may go down a little more, I'll have to take a while to fine tune.


I really like the new remote, it's well laid out and easy to use. I've already moved my DirecTV from the Lex MC12-D to the HDMI IN and that works fine. ON Blue ray I was also able to watch a 3D movie with the OUT 1 feeding the RS67 directly with OUT 2 going to the Lex which doesn't handle 3D.


Finally, I am trying to decide whether to include my Lumagen XD in the lineup. It's currently out of the loop and the picture still looks great. I might try putting it back in to see if it improves anything.


One issue though. Don't know exactly what I did but the system got stuck in a mode where the display was scrunched to the left quarter of the display while the rest was a couple of solid colors, (green and dark grey?). I wasn't just moved but squeezed down, (tall skinny). I had to power down everything and power it all back up to make it go away. The 103D immediately downloaded new FW the moment it was plugged in so I should have the latest FW.
