For those of you who have the Roku Stick (purchased directly from Oppo):

I noticed that the stick was set to 720P as default. I switched it to 1080P and noticed that when I use the Netflix app, there's a subtle stutter to the picture that occurs maybe once a minute. It's very subtle, but very annoying. I know it's not my Wifi speed. The Amazon app (which I'm pretty sure can only stream at 720P regardless) does not have this issue. I couldn't figure out why this was happening. Turning the 24fps option on or off did nothing to alleviate this glitch, nor did resetting the stick.

Just out of curiosity, I switched the stick back to 720P output and sure enough, the stutter is gone and Netflix streams smoothly at the expense of slightly inferior picture quality, of course.

Has anyone else noticed this issue? The stick doesn't seem to like streaming 1080p content. At least not through Netflix.

I just watched a Netflix movie this morning using the Roku stick purchased through Oppo and noticed that it was outputting only 720p and just thought that this is the way Netflix was sending it? I'm going to have to check my settings on it. I'll watch another tomorrow changing it to 1080p and let you know if I see a subtle stutter. It may be too subtle for me to notice.

Although the ROKU Streaming Stick is a good way to ADD apps, I recommend you always use the native apps in the player instead of their matching apps in the ROKU.

I noticed the stutter also....I have had the stick since I purchased the unit (2 yrs ago), but always used the native app for Netflix; but then I read that the stick could output 1080p/24, so decided to try it again.....but after the stutter situation, I am back to the native app. I just figured the stutter was from the stick being Wi-Fi (my Oppo is hard-wired to my network).......

The Marvell chip is only "superior" if you're the type of person who uses its various optional settings to tinker with your picture, or if you use the Blu-ray player to upconvert 1080p to 4k. If you don't use any of those settings (and you shouldn't - calibration should be done in the display) or 4k upconversion, the Marvell chip has no advantage at all.

Keep in mind that the OPPO player has two processing chips. The MediaTek processor does the bulk of the gruntwork for both HDMI outputs, including deinterlacing or upconverting standard-definition content to 1080p. The Marvell chip is only used for the optional picture control settings and for upconversion from 1080p to 4k.

So, for example, if you play a DVD to watch on a 4k TV, the MediaTek chip upconverts from 480i to 1080p and then the Marvell chip takes over and does the rest of the upconversion from 1080p to 4k.

Frankly, when I go back and forth in dual mode, I can't tell much difnferece.
The Marvell chip applies some measure of DNR to everything on HDMI 1, regardless of whether you have the optional DNR setting turned on or off. The filtering is mild on Blu-ray content, but much stronger on DVD.

Discovered a pretty cool feature on my 103 today. I use the 7.1ch analog outputs for surround and SACD/DVD-Audio playback. 2ch, I send bitstream through a toslink to my Tri-Vista tube dac.
Added a new pair of speakers to my system and was setting up the speakers and trim levels in the Oppo. Then started to play Dark Side of the Moon on SACD. While playing the SACD, I discovered I could open up the speaker settings in the Oppo and make changes to speaker size, distance, trim level, crossover... on the fly as the music is playing. I had the new towers in the rear set as large and they were a tad too boomy for me. While the track was playing, I could switch them to small and hear the difference. Thought this was a pretty cool feature. In fact, setting the trim level with my spl meter and the test tones, I thought I had the front left/right dead on. But during the music, the imaging was a hair to the left. I was able to bump the right speakers trim level up a half db and instantly it centered the image. Great feature.
I wish you could set different crossover points for each speaker but can't have it all.

Thanks, I did not realize that at all but it makes sense now.

See this in the BDP-93 FAQ: Is DVD 24hz conversion supported?

The feature is the same in the -103 players.

I leave it off so I don't have to pause, adjust the setting and explain the issue to other viewers when encountering problem DVDs. I'm not sensitive to pulldown judder anyway, although I leave 1080p24 on for Blu-ray.

Watched another Netflix movie (1080p) via the Roku stick sold by Oppo and didn't notice any stutter at all but maybe it's so subtle that I can't notice it?

Have you tried this yet? I'm curious about your results. I always assumed the 600 would natively upscale better than the 103, the picture looks fabulous, and I've always left it with the 103 set to 1080p output. Do you see a difference?

By the way, I wonder how many of us AVSers all have the same equipment.

Ahh...so I'm not crazy then. It's some kind of weird glitch which is probably some relationship between the Oppo and the Roku. I doubt it's the Roku stick itself, or the issue would have been more widely reported.

Not that it's a big deal. The native Netflix app works fine. I only bought the Roku stick for the occasional Amazon streaming video.

I'm not familiar with the Roku device but if it runs on Android, it's quite common for Android based devices to display a micro stutter every 41.666 seconds when playing 23.976 fps content at 24Hz

My unit is a 103D which may make a difference with 4K upscaling, but to my eye letting the Oppo do all the work looks a little sharper. I've gone back and forth, its pretty close. But when I get very close to the screen, closer than anyone would ever sit, splitting hairs I prefer the Oppo.

"Most" do not "Backup" Blu-ray discs.... There's a reason you buy the disc and that's to use it. So if you legitimately buy the blu-ray disc there really is not reason to be hiding it away in an airtight safety deposit box 6 miles underground with airconditioning and a generator backup. Anyway exaggeration aside I think it is pretty ridiculous to take away anything from a player just because it is conforming to the copyright standards.

Before there are replies about how you are entitled to "backup" so your original is safe etc don't bother I've heard the arguments for longer than media has been around. I'm a supporter of being able to do what you want but face it there's NOT a problem with using your original disc is there? How often do you really think your original is going to get damaged unless you let your 2 year old load your $30 bluray disc or use it as a frisbee for your dog.

One last question do you know how much a 50GB Bluray disc costs right now? $4 seems like which isn't too bad and they'll come down but that's extra time "backing up" discs when it is far more likely you'll never need these "backups"
A bit more to it than that.

For people like me who own a NAS, I like the convienence of DL the mp4 online so I can stream it to my vacation home.

I buy the bluray, some have vudu and that is great. But some don't and for me, it is legal for me to own a digital copy to stream as I please since I legally own the bluray.

Keep an open mind, bro!

Yes, same here; the RS analog model. ...And after that I use my set of ears to fine tune.

Hey folks,

I'm about ready to give up on the Netflix app. I'm hardwired into my router and I've reached a point that every time I open Netflix, it either hangs when I select a profile, gives me the "this title cannot currently be played" error message, or needs me to sign in again. I do find that every time I go back "home" on the Oppo and restart the app after a hang or error message it always works. Every. Time. That said, I'm not sure it's designed to work after the second or third try.

I keep deactivating the account and signing in again to try to make it work, but I'm finding that no longer is reliable. Again, I always can make it work eventually, but having to either a) constantly quit the app to start it again, or b) deactivate and sign in again is a tad frustrating.

Is there anything else I can try?

This works reliably for me when I get "this title cannot currently be played": When I first turn on the Oppo, I start up a different internet app--usually VUDU--and play a few seconds of a trailer.

Thanks for the quick response. However, I've found that the "title cannot be played" error is corrected (for me, at least) by simply quitting the Netflix app and starting it up again. This process never fails, and there's no need to run a different app. But you're correct- doesn't help with the constant need to sign in again.

Thanks for the help, though! Any other ideas?

There is a method to play Region B locked discs on an Oppo Region A player. You must rip your Blu Ray disc onto an external hard disc using DVDFab software. Before starting to rip, DVDFab will ask you to enter the region code for the disc (A,B or C). If you enter it correctly (in this case B), DVDFab will remove the RCE coding. Now you have to run bdmv_modify_V1.4 to enable Oppo with the latest firmware to open the BDMV structure on the hard disc. Now connect your external hard disc to Oppo via USB port and you will be able to play the image copy of your Region B locked disc on Oppo 103 Region A player.</div>

There are also internal and external hardware adapters which allow one to play any of the A/B/C region-locked B-R discs. (If someone does not want to go through the ripping process.)
I am thinking of purchasing a Region B BluRay disc to play on my US Oppo 103D.
Do you have any more info on the best hardware adaptors?
Thanks.

Save your settings. Reload the FW for the OPPO. Do a Reset Factory Defaults. Do an Erase Accounts and Settings.

See if that works.
