It's true, but still only for locally attached storage connected to the USB inputs.

Main Version: BDP10X-69-0124B
Loader Version: 6U1000 or 7B1300 (BDP-103), 7B1300 (BDP-105, BDP-105D, BDP-103D)
Sub Version: MCU103-05-0916 (BDP-103), MCU105-04-1113 (BDP-105), MCU13D-01-0618 (BDP-103D), MCU15D-01-0930 (BDP-105D), DB10X 131030 (BDP-103D, 105D)
Release Notes:

1. Resolved an audio dropout issue occurring with "Monsters University (BD, 2013)", related to its Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and 7.1 audio tracks when the player's HDMI Audio Format was set to Bitstream. We worked with Dolby and our decoder chip maker to address this type of audio dropouts.

2. Resolved an issue with Gapless Playback with several customer-encoded WAV files. It was caused by an additional “List” information segment presented in the WAV file Header, and we have added support for this segment so that Gapless Playback now functions properly with these files.

3. Resolved an issue where a brief static noise could be heard when streaming music from a computer running Mac OS X to the BDP-105's USB DAC input. It could happen when the music stream was paused for a few seconds and then resumed, and it could be heard through the analog audio outputs, including the 7.1, Stereo, and Headphone outputs. We improved the audio muting logic and have eliminated this static noise.

4. Resolved an issue where a brief static noise could be heard when playing SACD discs in DSD mode on the BDP-105. This burst of noise was audible at the beginning of a track or when switching to the next track. It could be heard through the analog audio outputs, including the 7.1 and Stereo ports. We improved the audio muting logic and have eliminated this static noise.

5. Resolved a compatibility issue between BDP-103/105's HDMI 1 Output to the McIntosh MX150/151 AV Processors. Users reported no audio when using this combination, so we added special instructions for these A/V processors in the HDMI handshake process. We highly recommend that you contact McIntosh Technical Support to upgrade your MX150/151 firmware to the latest version.

6. Added Gapless Playback support for FLAC files.

7. Added 24 Hz support for customer-encoded video files in 480P24 and 720P24 formats. The original frame rate can be preserved when upscaling the content to 1080p, e.g., when Resolution is set to 1080P, the 720P23.976 content is output as 1080P23.976, and 720P24 is output as 1080P24. Previously, these formats were frame-rate converted to 60 Hz.

8. Added an "INSTANT REPLAY" function to video playback. If the customer presses the AB REPLAY button twice (two presses within 1 second), video playback will be automatically rewound 10 seconds.

9. Added support for playing CUE files and DSD64 files (.DFF and .DSF) over DLNA. The DLNA server must support these formats as well. A new version of oShare DLNA server that provides these functions is available now, and can be downloaded here from SourceForge.net.

Don't hold your breath on that one. It involves licensing issues and such. There are no reliable open-source implementations of SMB-3 (yet). Apple tried to roll their own SMB 2 implementation for OSX and even it is still FUBAR. Making ANYTHING that is not Windows work well with Windows 8.1 file sharing is a mess for the entire marketplace right now. Even Windows 7 and Windows Server versions prior to 2008 won't play nice with SMB3.

It will come eventually - but very slowly.

My network is working again (from the Oppo) after installing this firmware update. I was having problems (failed login) playing files from computers on my network, but all seems fine now.

DLNA worked, but I couldn't access files directly. Now I can.

6. Added Gapless Playback support for FLAC files.

Not working for me. Just tried Pink Floyd's The Wall and Heart's Little Queen, both ripped to FLAC from my own discs - played off my 2T Western Digital hard drive.

Gaps seem shorter, but are still (joltingly) there.

I will try a set of flacs that I know come from a gapless CD also.....will report back shortly...

Update: Ok, I tested one of my gapless CD's, Oxygene, by Jean Michel Jarre. I ripped the CD to flac, and copied the files to my usb flash disk. I played back the tracks using the 105's onscreen interface, and heard very short audio dropouts between the tracks. It's definitely noticeable, so I wouldn't call this 100% gapless....Close, but...

One nice feature that got introduced into this Beta update is the "added" functionality of the SACD and PCM indicators on the Oppo's front panel display. Before the update, whenever I played DSD audio files from my usb drive or from DLNA, the Oppo player would never indicate whether the DSD files were playing back in PCM or DSD-direct-to-analog. Now, the indicators are functioning like I hoped they always would. smile.gif If the SACD light is illuminated without the PCM indicator on, DSD-direct-to-analog is taking place. If the PCM indicator is illuminated while the SACD light is on, then DSD audio is being converted to 88.2 Khz, 24 bit LPCM before being converted to analog.

Your post displays a misconception that somehow SMB3 support is necessary for SMB communication with Windows 8 and 8.1, however Windows 8 and 8.1 "speak" SMB1 and SMB2 just fine. And any modern version of the open-source Samba (server and/or client) can reliably communicate with Windows 8 and 8.1 with no issues using SMB1 or SMB2. Plus Samba's smbclient-4.1 (and greater) handles SMB3 as well. Windows versions previous to Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 do not do SMB3, but all communicate via earlier SMB protocols with Windows 8 just fine.

Are you guys turning Gapless on in the options popup menu before starting play? Gapless isn't automatic.

Ya know, I was thinking that as I went to bed last night...I'm like "huh, I wonder if that's a feature you have to turn on...because you probably don't want all flac files played back gapless. "

I'll have to go back and try that out when I get home from work tonight. Thanks for confirming my thoughts.

I completely missed the "gapless option" setting last night..cool.gif I typically never use the 105 onscreen interface for audio playback, so the onscreen options(menus) are new to me. Ok, so after entering into the directory where your flacs are located, pressing the "option" key on the remote will create a popup menu to show up on the bottom of your display. Therein lies the "gapless playback" option. Once selected, you won't be able to use the forward or reverse keys to skip thru your track, but it "does" 100% gapless fine!! biggrin.gif

Yes.  This is great for those of us with many input/output options.

Anyhow, I started thinking I was going to replace the AVR300, and perhaps only getting a pre/pro and using the AVR300 amps (us 7.1 DVD-A inputs).

Then I started thinking about the BDP105, and started to get excited about the possibility of upgrading audio, video, and minimizing the size of my system. So, here are my thoughts, and where I am looking for opinions:

1) Relegate both CD players for the BDP105, and use the 2 channel outputs into 2 channel inputs of the arcam. Bonus is SACD capability. Question would be - the CD73 is quite a good player, should the sound quality of the BDP be better in this regard?

2) Replace the Panasonic DVD player with the BDP105. Hook the 7.1 analog outs into the 7.1 inputs of the Arcam. The panny was a pretty highly regarded "affordable" player in it's day (about $400). Should my video experience improve? I know my disk load time will..

3) DirecTV receiver into the HDMI input of the BDP105. I get the HDMI switching that the AVR doesn't have. Question is, should me video experience improve? Currently the DirecTV is sending native to the Panasonic plasma, and the panny is doing the converting/scaling.

4) Squeezebox receiver into the optical input of the BDP105 to utilize it's dac for the conversion to 2 channel out. Question, should the BDP105 have a better DAC/analog section than the Arcam? The Arcam was about a $2k unit in i'ts day and still sounds great.

Bonus in all of this is I reduce my "boxes" to 3+ - AVR, DirecTV, BDP105, squeeze box receiver and controller (little)

So, thoughts, opinions? Thank you in advance

Jim

Just catching up with forum posts and saw your request. My comments may not be highly relevant, but is faced similar issues as you.

I had a nice audio setup (Cary tube amps, Vincent DVD/SACD player, old 32" Samsung TV and no surround audio setup) and wanted to preserve audio quality but also upgrade to a home theatre setup. Cutting to the chase, a long exploration led me to an Arcam AVR600 with the BDP105 as source/processor. I have AppleTV feeding in via HDMI and iPod Touch (via Wadia i171 transport) into coax on the OPPO.

The OPPO dedicated stereo outs go the the Arcam multichannel RCA inputs (FL and FL) while the OPPO side, centre and SW outs are connected to the other Arcam MCH inputs. This way I get straight stereo off the OPPO's best DAC while the system can be simply switched to full surround for BluRay enjoyment.

I have been so pleased with audio performance that I parted with the much loved Cary monoblocks. Interestingly the Avr600's audio processing is on a par with the OPPO and the Dolby multichannel synthesis from good audio stereo material can be a completely new experience of favorite music.

FWIW.

Well, I spoke a little too soon about Oppo's new gapless feature. Oppo got the "gapless" part correct, but they somehow messed up the track play back counter. Whatever track you decide to start at to enable gapless playback from your usb drive, that track will play back fine, and transition seamlessly into the next track. However, this 2nd track will somehow repeat itself, and will mess up the onscreen track counter and file info. After that track is done playing back for a second time, the remaining tracks in your directory will play back without repeating. We'll have to wait for the next firmware release for a correction to this bug.

Please forgive long post but I could use some brain power

Having a recently developed issue with my 105. On some SACDs, DVD-Audios and CDs a static like noise can be heard instead of the music and even with the music. It is random and goes away. I have tried to switch between the dedicated stereo and the front L R to see if I can narrow it down but when I try to go back that section of the disk it plays just fine. I have found one disk where the same or like noise is present every time and that is Dylan’s Nashville Skyline track 10. The noise is in the left channel. Also, just yesterday and today two channels are dropping out and then coming back, the center and the sub. That is they don’t have any sound at all but after reboots, etc. they come back. Or have so far.

What I have done : Original setup OPPO connected to B&K Ref50s2 connected to B&K200.7s2amp. Sub connection from OPPO to powered sub - Monitor Audio. I checked all line level connections and speaker connections. I removed the B&K Ref 50 from the path and connected the OPPO directly to the amp. I changed all wires (interconnects and speaker). I changed out the amp (I had another packed ready to take to NC but unpacked it and hooked it up). I switched channels to see if the problem moved with the connection (it did). Oh, that’s both problems, the noise and the dropped channels.

I removed every connection so the only hookup was the OPPO to the amp to the speakers for just front left and right. None of this fixed the problem.
For the lost channels I rebooted the OPPO several times. That problem started with just the center channel and then, today, the sub channel dropped out. I reset the player to default, went back to the most recent official software version. Rebooted and after the default settings didn’t change anything I loaded my settings.

Where I sit now – the OPPO to the amp with rca connections and OPPO directly to sub. Amp to other speakers ( 7.1) At last reboot & reload all channels were working but the noise is still there. The noise – best I can describe is like an FM station that isn’t coming in clearly. Static like but happens in lieu of the music or dialogue and sometimes with the dialogue. I have laid the living room, den and guest room to waste digging out wires, cables and components. I am putting it all away at this point as I don’t have a clue what to do next. It sounds to me like the chip is somehow messing up the decoding (and the signal to the two channels).

Any thoughts??? I have been emailing OPPO

Chuck

Have you tried listening to your CD's with a pair of headphones connected to the 105's headphone output? This will help to isolate further your problem.

However, this 2nd track will somehow repeat itself, and will mess up the onscreen track counter and file info. After that track is done playing back for a second time, the remaining tracks in your directory will play back without repeating. We'll have to wait for the next firmware release for a correction to this bug.

Yeah, I got the same thing. It played the track I activated the Gapless Playback on, then at the end it seamlessly played back the same track, then finished up the album. I didn't notice if the track counter was off or not.

No, I don't have any headphones anymore but I did play them through a different player and they sound fine.

Thanks!

Playing your cd's thru another player without static only proves that your cd's are okay. It doesn't prove whether your 105, your cabling, your amps, or ground loop noise exists in your system. If you could have listened to your cd's thru your 105's headphone output, and didn't hear any noise, you can rule out the 105 also.....but the "static" sounds to me like ground loop noise....are all your components connected to one "grounded" outlet?

The most recent beta firmware and its immediate beta predecessor address problems with static on some file types. Have you tried the most recent beta to see if your static problems go away?

Thanks Dan. It isn't a ground loop problem and static isn't really a good description. It sounds more like an old lp that has been played a lot. I was hoping someone else had that particular SACD and could let me know how is sounds on their player.

OPPO has been very helpful and we have worked through just about everything.

Thanks for the headphone tip Dan. Picked up a set and, yes, the noise is also in the headphones. OPPO has approved a return for service which I will do. However, I am going to take a day or two and try to find another disk where the noise is consistent and can be duplicated.

Again, thanks!!

I did install the most recent beta firmware but it not fix this particular problem.

Beta fw is always stable with Oppo. It will usually run through a private beta sesion to weed out any bugs first,
and then it will run as public beta to see if anything else needs attention before they make it 'official fw'.
If you choose to use the beta fw and happen to find a rare bug, you can always revert back to the last official fw if needed.

You can always go back to the Official Firmware, so give it a try.

My Oppo-105 started to behave very oddly this evening.  It worked fine this afternoon, but after dinner when I turned it on to play some FLACs off my external hard drive, it sounded very tinny and VERY LOUD, even when I turned the volume down to zero.  The thing was so loud at volume zero that I was worried about disturbing my neighbors.  I tried playing music through Pandora and got the same result.  

 

I then downloaded the new Beta firmware and played an SACD.  The SACD was just fine.  The volume worked normally -- I had to turn it to the 30's to get a decent level of volume for my room, there was plenty of bass and no tinny sound, and when I turned the volume down it got very quiet.  But then I switched back to my external drive, and it was suddenly very tinny and very loud, even at volume level zero.  Tried Pandora again, and it's the same story.  It's clearly not an issue with the external hard drive.

 

I've emailed Oppo technical support, but I thought I'd post here as well to see if anyone else has had the same problem.  Any idea how to fix it?
