I also noted an improvement in my Bell (Dish hardware) satellite picture using HDMI input 1 on the 103 projected onto a basic 100" screen via a BenQ 1070. The Bell box is set to 1080i and the 103 is set to output 1080p.

Perplexed! Could use an assist....

I purchased LCD Soundsystem's Blu-Ray "Shut up and Play the Hits" and have an issue I cannot figure out. It is recorded in DTS-HD Master, of which I have several discs in the same format, but the center channel is COMPLETELY silent during the concert. When the band is talking backstage, dialogue comes out the center as it should. As soon as the concert starts, complete silence on the center channel. I have checked and replaced the HDMI connections and cables, ran "pink noise" through all channels to confirm they are working, tested things out with my other DTS Mastered discs, the signal input showing from my Marantz processor (complete system below) shows all channel active. I even thought I had gotten a defective disc from Amazon so ordered a replacement. Same thing is happening. This Blu-Ray has literally hundreds of great reviews on Amazon and not one says anything about zero sound coming from the center channel. I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestion cuz I am CONFOUNDED!

Did a couple quick google searches...blu-ray.com doesn't mention the specific absense of center channel, but does say the music comes from the 'front channels'. Then found another forum where several users confirmed this is simply how the disc was mastered. It appears to be intentional.

Thank you for doing the homework on my issue. I couldn't find anything other that the "front channel" quote you found. That is disappointing that is the way it is mixed but oh well.

^ The center channel usually is primarily for dialog, but I have seen plenty of discs put more than that in it.
It just all depends on who mixed the sound.
If the original sound was recorded and mastered in 2-channel, then that is what they have ported over onto the disc.
If they were to remix it so that content was in the center channel, it would be an unnatural mix, but could still sound good if done right.
You could do the same thing in your processor though by turning on one of the DSPs like "theater" or "Concert Hall" or similar.
That might get you some center channel content.

I have seen some recent posts regarding Windows streaming and Norton Internet Security. I just thought I would share what I had to do to get it working on Windows 8.1. I have no problems with SMB shares now, and I don't have to enter a password.

You need to add three firewall rules in Norton. You also need to perform an extra step for password-free connection. I have attached my notes as an image because I couldn't figure out how to make a table work in the forum software.

Thanks for the feedback. Placed the order and it should be here on Sat. With an Avs game on Sat and the big game on Sunday, I should be able to test it out. (Although seeing what could be yet another curb-stomping of the Broncos in the SB on the big screen might not be all that satisfying....)

Holy crap. Long time i hear about Norton security software for insecure operating system and that uses too much computer power. Glad i dumped windows a few years ago.

Future Oppo Models

Maybe it's a closely guarded secret but my searches for information regarding new Oppo universal players always comes up empty.

The current model lineup has been around awhile and was wondering if anyone has any clues about what is on the horizon.

OPPO has said they are working on a UHD player, but we have heard no specifics or definite schedule.

I recently bought the 103 and installed oshare. But my PC drops its internet access after a couple songs playing on my oppo. I have to reboot my PC to get internet access back. Any ideas why this is happening?

I just wanted to pop into this thread to thank Oppo tech support for resolving my 'no audio to Vizio TV issue'. Apparently the Vizio M series does not pick up audio thru HDMI 1 but it does so thru HDMI 2. They acknowledged this is a known issue and sent me a beta firmware patch to fix the issue - and it did.

Problems with analog 5.1 audio setup on BDP-103

I recently obtained some active speakers to update my Oppo 103 for use with 5.1 source material, from its use with monitoring stereo audiophile LP to DVD-A discs. After adding the the additional SL & SR speaker feeds from the 103's analog RCA connectors and making appropriate adjustments, the results with a 5.1 DVD-A such as 'Hotel California' was stunning. However, having involved several Blu-ray video discs, the 103 didn't function correctly at all, with the audio level barely audible and no SL or SR sound.

I contacted OPPO, but they want me to swap my 103 with my 105 and let them know what the results are! The 105 is fully HDMI into an HDMI receiver which powers its 5.1 surround speakers. A lot of work to swap around this equipment.

Anybody running a 103 in 5.1 surround mode using the analog outputs to active speakers, while playing DVD-A 5.1 and Blu-ray movies? I sent the settings my 103 is using to Oppo, but they had no comment other than to swap my 103 with my 105!

^ Set HDMI Audio to OFF in the 103 to make sure you are not accidentally listening to audio on the HDMI cable when the problem occurs.

Check your Volume setting in the 103 (buttons at top of Remote).

Set Secondary Audio OFF in the 103, and also confirm that you have not selected a Commentary track as the audio to listen to when playing the Blu-rays that are exhibiting the problem.

If you have an audio calibration Blu-ray disc (such as AIX Audio Calibration), test individual speaker output using a test track from it. For example, on AIX use the LPCM 5.1 Channel ID track.

Be aware that many Blu-ray movies only have modest output in the Surround speakers. This is why it is good to check with a track you can be sure is supposed to put out sound there such as a calibration disc track.

It's worth the exercise anyway as it would make sense to swap them permanently if you're using the analog outputs of the 103 and the HDMI output of the 105 for audio - the opposite configuration would maximize the features you paid extra for in the 105 (better analog outputs).

Following up on my question regarding watching sports through the HDMI input on the 103 (adding this primarily so anyone searching can find it, since I found relatively little concrete experience).

In a nutshell - it works fantastically well. I watched a hockey game on Sat and the Super Bowl on Sunday and it was basically like watching TV. My particular setup is probably worse than most since the Mits 7800 seems decidedly poor in handling interlaced content, but the improvement was significant.

I also purposefully watched a DVD (The Killing, which I hadn't seen before), and I thought the result was rather impressive - detected 24Hz and I thought the scaling looked very good.

Overall, very satisfied.

^ On the DVD, the OPPO 10x players do not attempt to "detect" /24 content. If you enable DVD 24p Conversion then *ALL* DVD (shiny disc) content is converted to 1080p/24 output -- assuming you also have 1080p Resolution selected and 1080p/24 Output enabled.

This can result in stuttering if the DVD content was not really /24 to begin with, or if the transfer to disc was done in a way that screws up the cadence used with /24 content that CAN be converted.

If you see stuttering (typically in pans), just flip DVD 24p Conversion OFF -- you can do that on the fly, while the DVD is playing -- and enjoy the rest of the disc at 1080p/60 output.

Such stuttering, if present will be much worse than the tiny amount of "cadence judder" you are trying to eliminate through use of 1080p/24 output.

NOTE: The conversion is only available for DVD DISC playback. Not for SD Video Media files for example, or with SD Video on the HDMI Inputs.

Glad to hear our results were similar, i thought the Superbowl HD feed on CBS was especially good.
I don't think i can put all the picture improvement on the Oppo upscaling.
