For HT, is there any better player out there than the 103? Is now a reasonable time to buy or will changes be coming soon?

If you are interested in Darbee processing, then consider the 103D as well.

The next development in home media is 4K Blu-ray, not yet deployed. OPPO has said they will not have a 4K player this year, and maybe not next year.

The only way you could do it that would involve using the Oppo in any way would be to hook up a DVR to one of the HDMI inputs. But the recording would still happen on the DVR using the DVR's user interface, not the Oppo. As @Iron Maiden said, the Oppo isn't a DVR.

Well probably the easiest way is to shoot a video using your Smart Phone.

If you find your family is frequently fighting over your 103 on weekends you probably ought to consider buying a second one.

Q 1. Which of these players is "best" in streaming content from Vudu and Amazon video rental.

Q 2. Where do I place my darbee box? In the out hdmi cable just in front of the benq?

Standard DVD with multiple audio tracks

Hi:

I decided to view one of my older DVDs (from 1997) on my recently purchased OPPO and the upconversion was superb. It looked very close to high definition.

This particular DVD started playing the movie immediately and defaulted to the Dolby Surround track instead of the Dolby Digital 5.1 track. I had to access the pop-up menu in order to select the 5.1 track while playback was already in progress.

Is there any setting in the OPPO by which the default audio track can be the one with the most number of channels?

No. The spec for SD-DVD and Blu-ray leaves the choice of the default audio track under control of the folks who author the disc.

A faster way to get to SMB network shares?

Hello,


I prefer SMB sharing over Mezzmo on the Oppo however with SMB shares, I have to go to network, select the SMB server, then select video (over music and photo) and then select the folder. I'd like to streamline it a bit more and go straight to video without choosing that over music or photo.


Is there a way to get their more directly?

I've found for my older JVC projector, RGB video passes all the S&M color resolution tests. Therefore, I have both my 103D and Verizon DVR box set to output 4:4:4 and RGB.

Still have older BDP10X-38-1220 firmware installed, reason to upgrade?

Hi guys,

I've never have upgraded my firmware on my BP103 yet and it still has BDP10X-38-1220
(I had always hoped that it would of played .iso files when I bought it years ago, but it won't, too bad)
Anyway, my question today is there any reason whatsoever Not to upgrade to the latest firmware BDP10X-77-0827 ?
Yes I've read all the release notes, and seems like a lot has been fixed or changed since then, but I never noticed any problems anyway so never bothered with it. You see I may only use the player once a month or so, so I'm not a heavy user I guess. DirecTV has so much already I just don't find a lot of reason to use it.
(At first I had always wanted to plug a spare USB 3 multi TB HD into my BP103 and have my whole saved collection of DVD converted to .iso's for convenience saved on it to play, but I see the powers that be did not like the idea of us doing that, and I just never got around to converting them all to MP4 or MKV and was just to much bother I guess) (If there was a modern player that was as good as the OPPO that did play .iso's ? ..I prolly would of got that instead, maybe.)

ps,
I also have my previous OPPO DV-983H Player, in the box, was not used very much just like my new BP103.. ..if anyone wanted to buy it is my point. I don't need two units and it just sits in the closet for years now and I don't know what else to do with it?

Thank you

There is no reason not to update it, but if you are having no difficulty then it would not seem to be an urgent matter.

If you ever do have any sort of problem, then our first advice will be "update the firmware".

That was perhaps the finest DVD player ever made. I haven't looked at used prices recently. The only problem is it is not a Blu-ray player and and BDP-83 was almost identical for DVD playback.

Hi Bill,

Yes not in a hurry to do it. I have my USB stick ready though but wanted to post first.
The only problem I ever had was that occasionally, but not very often, some internet converted videos would not play the audio unless I go into:
Audio Format Setup> HDMI Audio> and toggle it from Automatic to Bitstream, and then it would work <shrug> ..when done I would just put it back to Automatic; perhaps a firmware upgrade would fix that 'if' it was a problem with the unit to begin with, I imagine it was just whomever converted it never did it right.. but I did notice it happened a few times and so thought maybe it was something a new firmware would fix.

I'm glad you said the previous OPPO DV-983H was a good one. I'm pretty sure it played .iso's and I don't think I ever upgraded the firmware on it either, but the main problem was I needed something that played Blu-Ray and definitely wanted something that played More assorted formats than the 983 did and was my catalyst to upgrade, and is why I bought the BP103; I just assumed it played iso's but didn't find out it didn't until after I impulse bought it.

The only OPPO player ever to support ISO was the BDP-93, and that lasted only about 6 months, before the studios came down like a ton of bricks.

I've never heard of another DVD or Blu-ray player from a major manufacturer (say one with US corporate offices) that supported ISO, although some media player appliances do so. And HTPC, of course.

You're right of course it was the 93 not the 983 - I got my numbers jiggled and I half thought my 983 could play them but certainly wishful thinking I guess. My PC can for sure. Anyway, thanks for your replies Bill.
Too bad there are no others major or Quality brands that can play .iso's
I'll have to read up which is the best format to use to convert my DVD's over so that my 103 can play them on a USB 3 portable HD. It would be So Handy to do that - my wife has 50 Denise Austin exercise videos and it's a pain for her to keep inserting all the different DVD's she wants at any given time - I'd like to get them all in one folder for her. Actually on some of my new DVD's too if I converted them it would even be nice to keep the Menu and the Chapters maybe, but I'm not sure if that's possible, but maybe I shouldn't digress about it here.
I noticed lately the 103 plays .mp4 and .mkv's quite well, just not sure they can do the original DVD menu and chapters?

No, the media file formats are single-title only. Chapters are ok, but not menus.

BDP10X-38-1220 IS the last firmware to play .iso on shiny disc's anyway.

What do you mean? ISO burned to disc is just DVD or Blu-ray video. There have never been restrictions on burned media of that sort.

SACD-R in particular. 1220 is the last firmware to play those.

Ok: burned SACD. That's still not ISO. Burned DVDs and Blu-ray are ok, excepting Cinavia which is mandatory in this generation of players.

My recent experience is that BDMV burned to DVD+R blank media (because it was small, and I didn't want to waste the more expensive BluRay blank media) will not play on the 103 if it declares itself to be BDMV format. If it is BDMV then it must be burned to BluRay blank media in order to play as BDMV on the 103. I'm talking, for example, about creating a burnable ISO file (in BDMV format) using multiAVCHD and then burning it to shiny using IMGBurn.

In contrast, if prior to burning the original BDMV content ISO folder is modified (by the BDMV_Modifier utility) to appear as if it were AVCHD format and then burned to DVD+R blank media, well now it WILL play on the 103. As far as I know all that BDMV_Modifier does is to change a flag in the file to indicate that it is AVCHD format. Otherwise, the content is actually the original BDMV data and displays identically on the HDTV (except that "info" shows it to be AVCHD).

Note that this story only applies to the 103. It does not apply to the 93, where BDMV burned to DVD+R blank media WILL PLAY JUST FINE.
