Is this when selecting via the AUDIO popup control on the remote? What if you select via the disc menu instead?

Bingo! Using the disk menu did the job. Thanks a million!

^ Some discs block audio or subtitles changes via the buttons. They require you make those choices using the disc's own Setup menu.

Anyway, I did do four things:

1. On my Yamaha RX-A1040, the OPPO is connected to AV3. When in this input, I turn HDMI out off so that there is no signal going to my TV and, thus, no additional handshake.

2, On the OPPO BDP-103, I verified that the default Split A/V was selected and that HDMI Out 1 is connected to the TV and HDMI Out 2 is connected to the Yamaha.

3. I set HDMI Audio to Auto (default) instead of Bitstream.

4. I set SACD Output to Auto (default) instead of DSD.

Again thanks for the info.

I found a workaround for this problem. Via Foobar, I am able to create a multi-track combined file + cuesheet and add 2 seconds of silence to the very beginning.

I tried it out and those extra 2 seconds made all the difference. I did not lose any bit of the actual music.

No wonder it took me so long to balance my sub in my system. I kept having to parallel park back and forth and it took forever to find a balance where both movies AND music would work. I bet I ended up splitting the difference. SACD is a poorly implemented system. I wish they would just do everything like blu-rays and be done with it.

Are you trying to make the soundtrack selection from the dicc's top menu before playback starts, or are you starting the movie and then trying to change the soundtrack after you've started the movie?

It can make a difference because I have a number of discs which won't let me change the soundtrack after I've started the movie playing and I then get a message similar to the one you're describing. In those cases the solution is to stop playback and to go back to the top menu of the disc, select the soundtrack first, and then start the movie playing.

I've never had the problem you describe if I select the soundtrack first,

Well no, not really... SACD was not designed to offer a dedicated (.1) sub channel. It was designed to offer six 'full band-width/frequency' uncompressed audio channels. Also, it was designed many years before Blu-ray was conceived...

Perhaps Blu-ray should have followed how it was done on SACD

Question OPPO BDP-103 zoom feature with Netflix?

I tried searching everywhere, so sorry if I missed an answer to my question.


Apparently the OPPO BDP-103 has Zoom feature such that the black bars can be eliminated if one choses. Does this zoom feature also work on streaming Netflix app if you are watching a 2.40:1 aspect movie or is it only limited to DVDs & Blu Rays? Thanks for your help in advance.

It works if playing from a SMB share - sorry don't have netflix, but I think it works on everything.
