USB 3.0 devices are downward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, so you shouldn't have any issues connecting your drive to your 103.

See this FAQ section for details on media file support: Media Files.

There is a lot of variability in media files, so it is impossible to say "yes" to everything you might have. But a lot of people use the OPPO in this way.

If still no good for you we should check both the player firmware and AVS HD 709 version numbers.

FYI, you were right. My disc for the 83 and 93 was obviously the HDMV version. Burned a copy of the AVCHD version and it played in the 103 perfectly. Thanks!

Residency08,
See the FAQ -- link at the top of the first post of this thread -- for info on supported container file formats, and supported audio/video codecs within the container files.

Every streaming device is different, so it would not surprise me if you found some issues you had to work around -- sometimes no more complicated than re-muxing the problem files with the newest version of the file making tool.

Subtitles in movies are a common area where you might need to do things differently. The same with meta data like artwork.

A question for those who use the MHL Roku streaming stick. Does the MHL port stay powered on when the player is not in use? i.e, the Roku stick doesn't require rebooting each time the player is activated. Thanks in advance.

This coordinates with the STANDBY MODE option in the setup menu of the player.
If you choose to use QUICK START mode, then the Roku stick will not need to go though a full bootup
every time the player is power cycled.
If you choose ENERGY EFFICIENT mode, then the Roku will need to go though a full reboot
when the player is power cycled.

When you first insert the Roku stick in the front MHL port of the player,
the player will automatically set itself to QUICK START for the best control option for the Roku stick.
After that happens, if you want to switch to ENERGY EFFICIENT mode, you can do so via the setup menu of the player.

mr bob/wmcclain/danf8500,

Thanks for the insight.

Recoding/muxing of problem files will be fine. I can handle that.

My concern is the actual hdd drive. I dont need to replace it with something fancier just because of the oppo right?

I have seen some with drobo, qnap etc.. attached to the unit. How do these differ? Should I be thinking about these? (I only want the NAS connected and used in one room. no sharing needed..)

thanks

Chuck

I don't know of any issues with the hard drive.

Apart from directly connecting a drive to the player, the player can access files on your local area network, via two methods: DLNA and SMB. Even if you are not otherwise sharing the files with another device, the virtues of network access is that you can maintain your collection without plugging and unplugging the drive from the player.

The virtue of a direct connection is simplicity.

So, you actually have a NAS in addition to a 4 tb usb drive? The whole benefit of a NAS drive is that it can be shared/accessed by every device in your home network. Your Oppo should be part of your home network (i.e. attached to your router). IMO, it makes no sense trying to maintain a 4 tB usb drive full of audio/video media.....it will become a PITA every time you want to add files to it (you'll have to disconnect from your Oppo, and connect to your computer to transfer files).

hi,

sorry no NAS. just the 4tb drive.

the drive used to be connected to a wd tv live media box. and each time i needed to add/delete movies, I disconnected it. Connected to laptop transferred and then reconnected . I know .. I know.. PITA..

Can you guys point me to a link/tutorial that helps with setting up the oppo to a network and and then adding files the attached drives?

Thanks

Chuck
