madaudio,

All the time I have been reading this thread, No-one has definitively answered how to do this. Everyone has usually been coy. I guess I can just buy this program and use it the way you describe and all is well for saving to my hard drive?. The way you described it makes me now want to spend my money on something that works correctly. Question: will dbpoweramp do the same thing?

Yes and just as easy to put on the NAS.

The "how to" for using the software is off-topic for this thread, which is why people don't go into depth here. If you Google "DVD Audio Extractor", you'll find a link to the software which appears to be pretty easy to use.

The BDP-93 FAQ lists two utilities for extracting DVD-Audio (at the bottom of the section): What are the alternatives to .iso files?

I have DVD-Audio Extractor. It works well.

I just ordered a multi-region 105 from Bombay Electronics. I'm seriously hoping I don't have any issues with the region-free playback like I've been hearing about.

I am using it now too. Seems great!

Gerry-rigged for lip sync based on edfowler's post. Optical cable from stb (TiVo) to the 105. Using a Monoprice 2-way HDMI switcher to go between broadcast and disc play video. Only inconvenience is no OSD for the 105 when switched to broadcast. Not a big thing. It's only temporary. Right? We hope.

Are you using the new, 0522B Public Beta firmware? You shouldn't have to do this any more. Don't forget that a Reset is required after this Public Beta firmware install.

So I have been happily throwing DVD-A's and SACD extracts onto an SMB share. Works great with one major exception...the file sorting is wacked out. I opened an incident with Oppo and they said

"Howard,

This is an OPPO issue which we are looking to fix through a future firmware release.

Best Regards,

Customer Service
OPPO Digital, Inc. "

Anybody come up with a work around until Oppo gets their act together?

If you are using Samba there is a server-side parameter that causes the server to sort. Search the BDP-103 thread for "vfs objects = dirsort".

NAS sometimes use Samba. People have implemented the parameter in that case, but it sometimes takes effort. The config files may be stored in special memory and those are the versions you have to edit.

Otherwise: DLNA servers sort their listings and NAS often come with DLNA. Check the specs and docs for your device.

Yeh...Not too sure about modding the Seagate Central...In terms of DNLA, it does not support DSD files. Rules me out frown.gif

Thanks for the suggestions though. I guess I am stuck waiting on Oppo to issue a fix.

No. I'm not a beta recipient. Just checked and my player says I have the latest public update, BDP10X-0422. All of my updates have been via network.

I know the new Public Beta helped with my A/V Sync issue. Make sure you do a Reset to Factory Defaults after you install it. You will need to download the file onto a USB flash drive or burn a CD.

dbpoweramp is basically for CD's, not for DVD Audio, as I understand it. It will rip your cd's into compressed flac format without any loss of quality. Google dbpoweramp.

I use dbpoweramp to rip my cd collection into flac files (no loss of playback quality) and dvdaudioextractor for my dvd-audio discs. I think both offer a free trial download.

Public Beta firmware is available to everyone. It's just not offered over the network (to keep people from accidentally installing it without realizing it is still Beta).

Download it from the Support page for the 105 for installation from an attached USB drive or USB stick:

http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-105/blu-ray-BDP-105-Support.aspx

NOTE: This is for the US model players. OPPO UK has not yet posted the Public Beta for the European model players.

Unsorted files in Oppo's smb share view directories has been like that since day one, or at least I've never seen files in any sorted fashion before. They've had many chances to incorporate a sorting fix, but I guess many other bug fixes have taken higher priority.

have oppo 105 everytime I play amovie using a sharp 70"aquos the screen goes blank after 50 or 60 min. igotta shut everything off wait 5 mins. then turn it all back on and sometimes this restores it not always:mad:

This sounds like a bad HDMI cable. Try replacing your current HDMI cable.

If you are going through a receiver or a switch, try direct connecting with HDMI 1 to the display for video and HDMI 2 direct to your receiver for audio and see if the same errors persist.

This is a little off topic, but I'd like to connect my iPad to my Oppo 105 (in route to me!) and use it as a monitor rather than having to turn on my big TV to playback some Blu-ray audio discs (so I can see the menu, select playback resolution, select tracks, etc.). Is there anyway to do this? Perhaps some app that would work?

Not possible. iPads were never intended to act as an input monitor(hdmi in). They can output video, via hdmi, to another monitor, or receive video via network interface. I think there are some small, 7" lcds on the market, but not sure if any have hdmi input. Oppo's hdmi 1 output would be the only output available for this.

Using the WADIA, which is connected to the OPPO's COAX-IN, ensures the iPod's DAC is out of play and also reclocks to the iPod's digital output. The OPPO SABRE DAC can do its best.

Downsides: if your audio library is larger than the capacity of the iPod, and, if you want anything more than 2-channel playback (which I guess is not your desire as you utilise the Apple Lossless format like I do.

I've searched high and low (on the internet at least), and it looks like I cannot find the Wadia i171 Transport available anywhere for retail purchase.

Does anybody know where to buy one now? If they are indeed no longer available... why? And is there another product from Wadia that does the same thing? Or another company for that matter?

Thanks all!

after the latest beta firmware, I still get lockups when connecting to WD 4TB external drives

I end up having to turn the unit on and off 5-6 times before it starts working correctly; this is ridiculous

I have already tried gracenote on and off, energy efficient on and off; makes no difference

the drive works fine with my computer and other media players

Just writing to answer a question I raised myself some time ago. I recently got some relatively inexpensive "audiophile" European made bulk power cord and Chinese Oyaide knock-off terminations to replace the Volex cord I had been using. After some break-in everything improved just a little bit. Smoother highs, a bit more slam in the bass, a bit more focus, and small additional depth in that some instruments come a bit further forward.

I use just two channels. No, I did not do a double-blind test, and never would, and no I do not know the science; do a search. No flames please.

Not looking to push any product here. It's likely other cords will work as well, maybe better. They say it's system dependent. If someone wants to know what I used you can PM me.

I forget the history of your problem. Have you tried any other brand of hard drive? Have you given the device details to OPPO?

If they work on the computer you could access them via SMB or DLNA.

It sounds like Ramatam is actually taking the whole thing in stride pretty well, but wanted to let people know what happened.

Yes, taking it in stride...stuff happens and you fix it and learn from it. Which is why I say to everyone out there, be wary after firmware updates.
We are listening to ever-evolving new types of files on larger than ever before hard drives....new frontier stuff and the hardware/software/firmware is trying to keep up...there's bound to be a glitch here or there. Preview your material before turning up the volume.

Sorry to hear that the beta release doesn't include fixes to the "noise" problem. Oppo support said it would. Must be a tough nut to crack. Someone mentioned a timing issue....seem feasible to me. I'm going to ask Oppo if there isn't a preferred format for the larger (ITB and up) drives. I'm currently using FAT32, which is the default. Maybe exFat is better?
