My only goals were to be able to browse my files where they reside and be able to play them without issues. Both of those have been accomplished without using JRiver.
Generally, if someone has the problems that you describe, it means that the DLNA server is transcoding unnecessarily. You need to make sure turn Audio and Video transcoding off. I have no problems pushing anything and everything to my 103 from jRiver...including MKVs and DSD files.
There is a dedicated thread for Oppo-related DLNA discussions. You might poke your head in there.
