Odd issue.

My OPPO 103 has stopped responding to the remote's directional buttons for navigation. It still responds to the Netflix or VUDU buttons.

I changed the batteries, but didn't seem to help. Is there a way to manually factory reset the player? Or reset the remote? I wasn't dropped (as far as I know), but maybe the kids were playing with it when I left them alone watching a movie.

First check that both batteries are inserted the correct way around. Then try ANOTHER new set of batteries. Batteries do go bad sitting on the shelf.

Check whether the Arrow buttons on the front panel respond normally. Also check the remote while standing close to the player. If the front panel buttons work, and the remote works while standing close, but still doesn't work from a normal distance, you may have added something to your room which is producing IR light that interfere's with the player's ability to see the remote. The usual culprit would be an IR emitter used by a 3D TV to sync the 3D glasses.

You can also try switching to one of the 2 alternate sets of remote control codes. The selector switch is in the battery compartment of the remote. After changing that slider, open the tray of the player (using the front panel button) and then, while the tray remains open, press and hold the Enter button of the remote for a few seconds. A message will come up in the front panel that the alternate remote code set is now in use.

If still no luck, then your remote may have failed. Give OPPO Tech Support a call. They sell replacement remotes quite inexpensively for players out of warranty.

Yes... You can re-mux the .dts audio stream into the .mka container using MKVmergeGUI.

The Oppo's can see/play .mka contained files locally and via SMB and UPnP

Thanks for the information. I am pretty sure the only thing the Oppo is doing is a crossover of 40 hz and I cant seem to get rid of it either. I would prefer to have full range of all channels and not interfered with. My system can certainly handle any frequencies I through at it even extreme LF in all channels.

Is there a way to set the Oppo in a non-interfering mode some how?

Thanks for your help.

^ If you set all speakers to LARGE the Crossover is not active. Set the Crossover value up to something large like 120Hz and you'll be able to prove this to yourself easily enough.

Note that Crossover only applies to the multi-channel Analog audio outputs.

While we're at it, check to make sure you have DTS Neo:6 Mode set to OFF, too.

---------------------------------

With the Crossover disabled in this fashion, if you have no Subwoofer you should consider leaving Subwoofer set to ON anyway, even though there is nothing cabled to the player's Analog Sub output. This will discard LFE content when playing multi-channel tracks, rather than down-mixing LFE it into Left Front and Right Front. Setting Subwoofer to OFF will retain LFE content (the .1 channel of 5.1 or 7.1 tracks), but due to the way LFE is recorded, this requires a substantial dose of down-mix attenuation in the rest of the speakers, which necessarily raises their noise floor.

(Audio mixers are not supposed to assume the listener has a Sub. Thus bass all the way down in frequency range is authored into the main speaker channels and will go to those speakers if you don't use the Crossover. The LFE channel is a special channel reserved for LOUD bass.)

---------------------------------

If you don't want the OPPO to do speaker distance adjustment, set all speakers and Sub to the same distance. Any distance will do so long as they are all the same. For example, you can leave the factory default, 12 foot setting.

If you don't want the OPPO to do speaker volume trims, set the individual speaker volume trims to 0dB for all speakers and Sub.

Hi Bob, just a thought... leaving the analog out speaker distances set to 12 feet will offset the audio delay to ensure lipsync is in sync with video when speakers are set 12 feet away from the listener. Most other analog out players didn't have the option to use them as a surround preamp thus they did not have speaker distance settings. People who are using analog outputs with a another receiver or preamp should set the distance to zero in all channels when not using the oppo as a preamp. Let your receiver/preamp adjust the lipsync timing.

Interesting! I will run some experiments to verify that. I would think the video would be delayed 10.6ms when distance is 12 feet since sound travels much slower than light. When I change speaker distance in my preamp I have to readjust overall lipsync if I have not physically changed the distance I am sitting from my speakers.

Hi Bob, You are correct! Distance adjustments are only for offsets between different speaker distances. This also explains to me why the negative lipsync settings for overall lipsync. My preamp does not work this way. I set the distances to 50 feet on the oppo and I would have seen a full frame of delay shift and its not there.

That's good...it avoids confusion some people might have when using an external processor and if they didn't reset the distances to zero. The way they did this avoids differences between other video sources and lipsync. Nice job oppo!

Cheers,

Ron

The Oppo can't decode the height channels in an Atmos soundtrack, just the normal surround channels. You can't get the Atmos height channels from the Oppo so the answer is "No". It simply cannot be done.

Even if it could be done, you'd run into problems because you're passing a digital signal to the AVR and the Oppo's volume control does not affect digital audio levels, only the AVR's volume control would control the 5.2.2 channels, and the AVR can't control the output levels from the Oppo's analog outputs, only the Oppo's volume control can do that, so you would have no way of keeping the volume levels of all channels matched as you increase/decrease volume. You'd have to use 2 separate volume controls every time you wanted to adjust volume and you'd always be guessing how much to adjust the second control so that the channels controlled by that volume control ended up with their levels matched to the level of the channels you adjusted first.

This has likely been answered before, but could someone assist me with something?

I was under the impression that since I didn’t have a 3D capable TV, that I wouldn’t be able to even run a 3D Blu-ray at all. Is this correct or is there a workaround that would allow me to watch a 3D Blu-ray via my BDP-103?

Someone in another thread suggested that it is possible by simply turning “Off” 3D playback so that it will force the player to play in 2D only. I tried that but it doesn’t work. Whatever 3D discs I’ve tried will begin to load and then give me the disc-specific unpassable “Warning” basically saying that I have to have both a 3D capable Blu-ray Player and 3D capable TV in order to even access the disc.

Is there a workaround for this? Or is it as I initially presumed and I will not be able to access the 3D versions (without significant workaround)?

Normally this isn’t a big deal, but I did want to experience Transformers Age of Extinction with the switching IMAX aspect ratios, but it is only available on the 3D disc.

More often than not, if you play a 3D disc without a 3D-capable TV connected, you'll get 2D. That said, most all 3D release come with a 2D disc so its not a huge issue. Contrast, color and brightness will be out of whack in 2D from a 3D disc.

Yep, as I mentioned, this normally isn't a big deal (for the reason you stated) the vast majority of the time. The only instance where I wanted to force play the 3D version and convert it is when filmmakers decided to do exclusive content, like Transformers Age of Extinction Switching aspect ratio ONLY for 3D.

It won't even "play" the disc, it always stops at the 3D compatibility notice, so I am wondering if I am doing something wrong.

That's a restriction placed on you by the makers of the disc. Sounds like a case for ripping it.

Hello everyone, I have read through the thread and believe I have the answer fro my question and would like to have it confirmed from the experts here

I am currently using a Pioneer Elite SC-85 that does all my DSD decoding and everything else. I am looking at upgrading to the new Anthem AVM60 for a couple of reasons and it does not offer DSD decoding. From what I understand is that I would need to run audio from the analogue outputs of the Oppo to have it send the decoded DSD signal. Will the analogue outputs also send the audio for all the HT/BD functions as well? Also, what HDMI output would I use to send the video to the Anthem and will that interfere with the audio from the analogue outputs?

Thank you for the help as always!

^ This is only an issue if you care about whether the DSD content is converted to LPCM before being converted to Analog.

If you don't care (which is what I suggest), then set SACD Output PCM in the OPPO 103 and you can use HDMI to the AVM 60 -- same cable you are using for video.

If you do care. That is if you want the DSD content converted DIRECTLY to Analog without the preliminary step of conversion to LPCM. Then set SACD Output DSD in the OPPO 103 and cable Stereo Analog to the AVM 60. Note that the AVM 60 does not have multi-channel Analog inputs, so you will only be able to wire for Stereo this way.

Also note that when DSD-Direct-to-Analog Conversion is in effect -- i.e., with SACD Output set to DSD and the Analog audio outs in use -- no audio processing of any sort is available in the OPPO 103. No Volume control, no down-mixing, no Crossover processing -- nothing. So if you play a multi-channel SACD track you will only get audio from the Left Front and Right Front channels since there's no way to wire the other channels to the AVM 60 and no down-mixing from 5.1 to 2.0 audio output can be done.

With this in mind, the rest of your setup is easy. All of the outputs of the OPPO are live, so you can still send video the AVM 60 via HDMI 1 output from the OPPO. In the AVM 60, you specify the HDMI input for video and the wired Stereo Analog input for audio. That's for playing your Stereo DSD content.

Meanwhile, set up second Input definition in the AVM 60 which uses that HDMI Input (i.e., HDMI 1 output from the OPPO) for both audio and video. That's for all the rest of your content.

-------------------------------

My recommendation would be that you set SACD Output PCM in the OPPO 103 and use HDMI for both audio and video even when playing your DSD content. The OPPO will send HDMI LPCM 88.2kHz 24-bit up to 5.1 channels when playing DSD content this way. But of course you can set it up both ways (HDMI audio and Stereo Analog audio) and compare for yourself.

Thank you Bob, that is great info. I thought the AVM60 had MCH analogue inputs so thank you for that clarification! I looked at the pic of the back and saw analogue input above the analogue outputs and well...am glad I have not made the purchase yet.

With your recommendation to use PCM output, would there not be a sound difference between DSD and PCM?

Also, are you saying that I am able to run both HDMI audio and stereo audio out from the Oppo simultaneously, or will I have to make the manual switch each time?

^ All audio outputs from the OPPO are live simultaneously. You select which to listen to in the AVR.

Theoretically you should not be able to hear a difference between DSD-Direct-to-Analog Conversion and DSD first converted to LPCM digital audio in the manner the OPPO does that. This is a subject of some debate, and of course you may want to try it both ways. Comparison can be tricky as you have to get volume matched both ways and account for differences in audio processing each way.

Personally, I use the DSD conversion to LPCM in the OPPO. That's with an Anthem Statement D2v / 3D.

Theoretically you should not be able to hear a difference between DSD-Direct-to-Analog Conversion and DSD first converted to LPCM digital audio in the manner the OPPO does that. This is a subject of some debate, and of course you may want to try it both ways. Comparison can be tricky as you have to get volume matched both ways and account for differences in audio processing each way.

Personally, I use the DSD conversation to LPCM in the OPPO. That's with an Anthem Statement D2v / 3D.

Thanks Bob, how do like your D2v? I saw a good price on a used one that tempted me over the weekend.

I will try both with my current setup to see if there is a difference that I hear.

Hi, I'm a relative newbie to home theater setups. I'm an owner of a Oppo BDP-93 and posting here because that official thread seems inactive and my question is hopefully universal to all Oppo players. I have my BDP-93 connected via HDMI to a Marantz 1604 receiver. Can someone help me with choosing the best audio settings to use for Blu ray movies and SACD/DVD-Audio? When I go into the audio settings menu I feel a little overwhelmed.

Really, if your receiver can process both bitstream and LPCM for all movie audio formats it shouldn't make a difference. If your receiver is an old model which can't decode the lossless formats then you need to use LPCM in order to take advantage of those formats. With SACD it also shouldn't make a significant difference if your receiver can process both DSD and LPCM but if it can't process DSD then LPCM is the only viable option. The one problem you may strike with DSD is that things like Audyssey room correction and bass management require LPCM so they may not work if you send DSD to the receiver so if you want that functionality with SACD then that could be another reason for choosing LPCM over DSD.

Basically what it comes down to is whether your receiver can handle the audio formats the Oppo sends to it. If it can there's unlikely to be a difference one way or the other, or at least not a significant difference. If the receiver can't handle some audio formats then LPCM is definitely the best, and only choice, for what to send to the receiver because all receivers with a DAC will handle LPCM.

Does it happen if you have networking turned off, or if you disconnect the ethernet cable? Have you tried rebooting the router?

Are you running current firmware?

Thanks for the response Bill. It is only locking up when I enter the network menu, and start to scroll. I have rebooted router and switchers, also I am unable to stream from Netlix on the Oppo but am fine with Roku, its really odd that it affecting both oppos. Latest firmware also

That is odd.

So you are getting to the server and scrolling through a list of files and directories when it locks up?

Is this with DLNA or SMB? Could you try the other?

If it is easily replicable, get the details to OPPO support. They'll need to know about the server.

I have had some situations where the Oppo locks up when I'm browsing and I hit upon certain video files (so as you're scrolling, it peeks into the file so it can display the resolution, length, frame rate, image if it has one...). If you can note which file you're browsing when it freezes and then temporarily move or hide that file, you might solve your problem.

I usually reprocess those video files to clean them up and the problem goes away....
