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).......

Accordingly, you were suppose to get the best of both worlds and was the main reason the split mode was designed.
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.
