The new Netflix application in the beta firmware is very nice. If you watch Netflix, you want this update.

Thanks. I didn't think so, but I was a little unclear and haven't had a chance to try it. Been too busy just trying to get sound out of my dying Onkyo 818. rolleyes.gif

Tried the new Berlin Phil. app, but that was worthless, just keeps rebuffering every several seconds, and I'm running on a pretty fast FIOS Quantum 75/15 connection over Ethernet.

Yeah, it appears to be ported from the app used on the PS3

Hi i just recently received a 105d. i had been reading through the oppo threads before the purchase and there was a post listing optimum stereo setup settings and maybe some video settings. i thought i had bookmarked the page but cannot find it now and i have looked a while but there are 3 threads and it is taking ages. can anyone either link the page or suggest some settings? thanks

You want to go to the 105D thread. Settings, recommendations, FAQ's, etc...should be on the first post.

There isn't a 105D thread with such items in the first post. Neuromancer's 103D thread can be used as a reference for video settings that are specific to the "D" players and this thread can cover anything else 105/105D related.

Update: Closed down Oppo, PC and then rebooted the Comcast gateway. After turning everything back on, situation the same. So for now using Asset and Foobar200 to play files on my PC via the network. Frustrating.

I'm quoting a previous post of mine to let the readers know what the resolution of the problem I originally reported seems to be.

Problem: The Network screen was no longer showing the SMB/OWNER icon. I use the Norton Security Suite and once it's firewall was disabled, the SMB icon reappeared. I'll be checking the firewall settings to see if I can allow the Oppo entrance without having to disable it entirely.

Does anyone have an idea when the beta firmware update will become a general firmware update that downloads over the internet when one fires up a 105?

Most times Beta becomes Official in two to three weeks, longer if there are additional bugs which need to be addressed prior to the firmware being pushed to all users.

If you're only using the dedicated stereo outlets then the answer is simple. Ignore the Speaker Configuration settings, the Crossover settings, and go straight to the Stereo Signal setting in Audio Processing. Set it to "Down-mixed Stereo". That's it, nothing else to do. The other settings controlling analog audio output, the Speaker Configuration and the Crossover settings, only apply to the 7.1 channel outputs. You have no need to touch them if you are only connecting a single pair of speakers to the dedicated stereo outlets.

If you are connecting other speakers such as a sub, or more channels than just a stereo pair, then you deal with the setup for all of your speakers in the Stereo Configuration and Crossover settings and you then have the choice of taking your analog outputs solely from the 7.1 channel outlets or of using the dedicated stereo outlets for the front left and right channels of the multi-channel setup and using the multi-channel outputs for the balance of the channels you're using. Since you said you're mainly interested in settings for the stereo outputs I'm not going to go into detail on these options because you don't need to touch them and any settings made to the Speaker Configuration and Crossover settings have no effect on the dedicated stereo outputs while the Stereo Signal setting is set to Down-mixed Stereo. You'll need to ask again and give details of your speaker setup and what you want to achieve if you want settings using the multi-channel outputs either alone or in conjunction with the dedicated stereo outputs. Also tell us whether you're using an AVR with bass management options if you want that sort of info because the instructions are going to be different if you're using another device for bass management than if you're doing your bass management settings in the Oppo.

Just upgrade to 0430B Public Beta firmware, I find a major issue here. My 105 is connected to my home network(hard wired), I use Jriiver 18 mounting SACD iso and push to 105. After the firmware upgrade,when play SACD ISO through Jriver(push), I only hear noise no music. Anybody has some issue here?

I thought J River 19 was needed to play SACD's in that manner through the Oppo. I've extracted all my SACD ISO's to individual dff tracks and don't have any problems playing those with J River 19 through the Oppo.

It palys the SACD ISO perfectly under Jriver 18 before 0430B firmware, so I think it should be Oppo's bug. I can extracted all ISO to dff, just occupy too much space if you want keep both.

I don't know the exact firmware version where things changed, but support for burned SACD's was removed at some point and replace with support for DSD files. You may be running into that change and if so, it's not a bug - it's an intentional change.

I am aware no SACD-R playable anymore, I am talking about change from official BDP10X-70-0218 firmware to   beta  April 30 0430B beta  firmware. Jriver 18 play ISO to OPPO perfectly before this new firmware change. Maybe I should ask OPPO. Thanks anyway.

Just upgraded from the BDP-93 to the BDP-105D and I'm very impressed. At the same time, I've upgraded my electronics to McIntosh MX121 A/V Center and MC205 amplification. This gives me lots of audio connection options and my desire is to go all analog out of the 105D.

I apologize as it's probably somewhere here or in the wiki, but I want to make sure I'm interpreting the manual correctly regarding the analog connections for dedicated stereo audio and the multichannel analog outputs. Are the following assumptions correct:

1. The stereo audio outputs (RCA and XLR) are independent and have nothing to do with multichannel audio. By definition, these should go to a dedicated (XLR in my case) 2 channel input on my MX121. I will use the CD input in my case. By default, any mch media is down-mixed for these channels.

2. I have a 5.1 configuration. I should connect the 5 analog RCA's to the corresponding Bluray inputs on the MX121. I will then set up the downmix in the Oppo setup menu to 5.1.

3. I will be sending multichannel analog out to all channels, therefore bass management is controlled by the Oppo setup menu crossover menu, not by the MX121.

4. By going all analog out of the Oppo, I am bypassing the room correction capabilities of the MX121 (this may be a better question for the McIntosh thread).

Thanks in advance for either validating or correcting my assumptions.

McIntosh MX121. McIntosh MC205. Focal Aria 948 Main Speakers, Aria CC900 Center. Focal Electra IC 1002 In-Ceiling Surrounds. Paradigm Studio Sub 15. Oppo BDP-105D. Roku XS. Roku 3. Apple TV(3). DirecTV. Panasonic TC-P65VT50. Samsung UN40FH6030F, URC MX-780.

Asking Oppo directly is never a bad option.

I don't recall anyone previously reporting success sending SACD ISO's to the Oppo. Can you provide more details on how you've got JRiver setup? When you say you're using JRiver to push the content to the Oppo, am I correct in assuming you're using the Oppo as a DLNA renderer, not using the async USB input between the Oppo and your PC?

Have you testing rolling back to the 0218 firmware to see if these files play properly again? If not, that's one of the first things to try and something Oppo will most likely suggest you try.

By default, yes. It is possible to reconfigure the dedicated 2 channel outputs to be front left/right to be used as part of the multichannel outputs.

These really depend on capabilities of the MX121.

Yes, no USB between my pc and oppo, just WAN. Jriver can mount SACD ISO (show individual song) and I use "Play to oppo105" so I think Jriver is pushing individual DSD file (not the ISO file) to oppo. I will try to get back my 0218 and report the result.

Thanks GSR. I'll look into the reconfiguration capabilities of #1, but probably will stick with the dedicated source for Stereo via XLRs. I'll head to the MX121 threads for the last item.

I don't understand. It seems to say here (http://www.esstech.com/pdf/digital-vs-analog-volume-control.pdf) that the volume control on the ESS Sabre 9018 doesn't operate like a conventional digital volume control as it is on the DAC and so SNR remains the same as volume is decreased (until the noise floor is reached (at -135dB on the ESS Sabre DAC))
