Bob,

Looks like the issue was with the Samsung. Found an obscure setting in the Tools menu that allowed me to switch from "16/9" to "Screen Fill" and that seemed to take care of it. Glad I did not have to rip everything apart.

Thanks!

Is it possible to set the power-on volum per input? As in- have a different default output volume for HDMI front , HDMI back, CD, etc?

The dedicated stereo outputs are so much hotter than the other outputs, I am trying to figure out a way to not get blasted when I switch over to 2ch audio.

XLR Outputs are 6dB higher than the other outputs. Have to manually lower the volume coming from those outputs.

The XLR outputs work great to a Pre-Amp for 2 channel music.

I have the Oppo going to an old (new to me) Bryston SP-2 A/V preamp. The Oppo is connected a few ways... via the multichannel outs (for SP-2's "5.1 bypass mode" bypassing all digital circuitry); the dedicated stereo outs (SP-2 "2 channel bypass mode" also bypasses the digital but sends the signal through a separate 2 channel preamp section- supposedly the same circuitry as their much lauded BP6 stereo preamp); and then I have coax and optical outs to let the SP-2 do the processing for movies and TV.

Yes the Oppos dedicated stereo outs have higher gain than the 5 channel outs. And the Brystons own digital out is somewhere in the middle, tho closer to the 5 channel. The Bryston does have level adjustment for each input but not for the "bypass" modes since the level adjustments are done digitally.

If I could just set and forget the Oppo output levels differently per input I would be in business. Otherwise I guess I have to add an attenuator to the stereo output.

I wouldn't say 1920x1080p isn't normal as we run all our computers/laptops at that res for conferencing however, the recycle rate on you card may change to 75Hz ..I have some laptops at work that do this and it took us ages to work out why they were over scanning. Check your graphic card properties in the advanced section and make sure you've got 60hz. 1280x720 will give you full screen too.

I set Video Setup -> 3D Output to Off but I still get a 3D signal on my screen.

The manual states:
Off – Always output 2D video format, even when 3D video exists on the disc. This guarantees
the video quality if your TV is not 3D compatible, or if some necessary components (such as
the 3D glasses) are missing.

I want 2D display because I don't have the glasses.

Is it actually switching to 3D or is it just prompting you to switch?

Displays use some pretty weird heuristics to determine whether or not they are seeing a 3D signal. By definition, "heuristic" means that displays sometimes guess this wrong. It is actually getting a "normal" 2D signal, but guesses wrong. Or, said another way, some 2D content can "fool" a display into thinking that it is getting 3D material.

My plasma Panny does this on occasion, although very infrequently, with all my sources - Oppo, cable, or Roku. I just ignore the "do you want me to switch to 3D" prompt and it goes away. There may be a way on the display to turn off 3D entirely too. (In my case, we occasionally use 3D still).

Anyway - it is probably your display that is the issue and not the 105.

I'm playing a 3D blu-ray disc but setting 3D to Off on my Oppo 105 does not send a 2D signal to my TV. It still sends a 3D signal.

The TV won't play the disc. It displays an error message and won't allow any further action until I eject the disc.

From Oppo Support:
If the disc does not support a compatibility mode, then the player will require a 3D television. Most Disney Blu-rays are like this. One way you can get this work is to download the MediaControl application for iOS and Android and leave 3D Output as FORCED.

After loading the film and seeing TOP MENU on the front panel of the player.

Open the MediaControl application and then selected Video Setup and set 3D Mode to OFF. The player will be able to convert the 3D to 2D and you should be able to playback the 3D title on your non-3D display.

XLR Audio outs to sub woofer inputs

Hello,
I purchased a Martin Logan 1500X dynamo Sub woofer. It has a balanced XLR input. Can I connect the OPPO's XLR Audio output to sub woofer input and still maintain my 7.1 analog surround configuration?

Thank you.

I have a 105D on latest firmware in my 2ch stereo set up. I have a USB flash drive loaded with hi-rez music files. The 105D is connected to my network wireless and Quick Start On. Most of the time I can not connect to the Media Control app using iOS 10 on my iPhone 6s Plus, I haven't tried my iPad yet. I scan and nothing. If I enter the IP address I get Retry or Not Found. Once and a while I get connected using the IP address. I even did a factory reset on the 105D and my problem still persists.

If you feed the sub the XLR Outputs, the sub will have to do the bass management.

You can, but I doubt you will be happy with the results. The down-mix for the Dedicated Stereo XLR outputs does not include the LFE channel for example (the .1 of 5.1 or 7.1).

Gapless playback - what am I doing wrong?

Using the OPPO Media Control app on my android phone and steaming FLACs from Synology NAS using SMB. I long-press a track and select "gapless playback" but there is still about a 1 second gap between songs.

For a Gapless track transition, the next file must be the same format as the current file: Channel count, sample rate, and sample size. If that's true, in your case, then send an email to OPPO Tech Support. They may need a couple files from you demonstrating the gap.

So I tried using the OPPO Media Control app with my Ipad instead of the android phone, and gapless seems to be working. Strange. Still not seamless, though. There is a slight "hiccup" between tracks, but not really a gap. Is this "hiccup" normal?

Hello everyone!
I wanted to share my experience with the Oppo BDP-105D I purchased about one month ago. Overall, I am very impressed with its video processing capabilities as my satellite box is connected to it to upscale and improve PQ. I can't comment on Blu ray quality since I never had a BD player before but it's phenomenon!
I also bought it in the notion I could use it as a Netflix streamer (which does a very good job with overall satisfying PQ). However, yesterday I discovered, while exploring the Netflix app on my LG OLED, that Netflix provide a lot more subtitles (such as Herbrew, Russian, Romanian, Arabic and more) that I wasn't even aware that are available because on Oppo's Netflix I was only able to choose between English and Polish subtitles!
I contacted Netflix regarding this matter and after chatting with them for more than 40min (while he checked the issue with their tech team), he informed me that because the Netflix version on the Oppo is outdated, it doesn't support the streaming of all the subtitles that are available from Netflix (my version is 2013.2.4). Netflix also said there shouldn't be a problem for Oppo to provide an updated version of Netflix for their Blu Ray players and they will also forward this matter to Oppo in order to speed up this process up. After ending my conversation with Netflix, I decided to send an email to Oppo to find out if they are aware of this issue or have a fix for that.
Here is their respond to my inquiry:

"Eliran,

Unfortunately the player will not support Unicode, and we do not have any font libraries for foreign languages like Hebrew. We do hope to allow for this in our upcoming UHD players as they have new increased functionality and memory functions.

Best Regards,

Customer Service "


I wasn't expecting to receive such answer from a reputable company who is renowned for their "fantastic" customer service. I just paid one month ago 1800$ for a Blu Ray player that I am not able to get any updates for its applications? Moreover, this is something they are proud of and market it as a Netflix media support. It even has a special button on the remote for 'Netflix' so providing this small update is impossible?! I just bought their flagship player and now because they are about to release a new player, I need to buy the new one instead in order to enjoy the "new" capabilities?!
The other thing that doesn't make any sense is the support of Unicode that the representative claimed the player doesn't support. How come I am able to watch movies with foreign subtitles such as Hebrew using a simple SRT file? If there was no support by the player, I wouldn't be able to do that. How come in the 'Setup Menu' under 'Language' I can choose Hebrew in the 'Subtitle Language' section?
The worst part is that before I purchased the Oppo and I went to the store, they confirmed the full support of all languages even on Netflix! That is a big mislead and I really feel like I got cheated!

I would be happy to hear your experience regarding to these issues, if anyone encountered them. Also, it will be a great thing if some of the owners will complain about this issue too so maybe putting some pressure on Oppo will lead to a good outcome.

Thanks!

This is a confirmed bug in the current firmware. Gapless for FLAC files has a roughly 5ms gap. OPPO engineering is working on it.

For your issue with Android phone, are you sure you are using the latest version of the MediaControl app for Android? If so, please get the info to OPPO Tech Support -- model of phone, version of Android installed on it, app version you are using, and what's happening.

bdp 105 sleep?

Please forgive, if this is the incorrect place or format for my question. With 13,000 post, i dont know where to put it.
BDP 105 (not darby) Firmware: 10x-83-0715

I just want this thing to power off on its own (standby)
"sleep timer" doesnt seem to be it. It sleeps when set time is up, even playing a disc.

Can anyone enlighten me how to get this to go into standby on its own?
Any help appreciated.

You are looking for Auto Power Off or Auto Standby, which usually means the device will power off on it's own
after it doesn't receive a signal for certain period of time, but I don't think the Oppo 10x players have that feature.

Hey Guys,

Looking to get a used unit but have a few questions that are probably already in this thread, but 1300+, I can't read very fast....

I am looking to plug my Ipod classic into the USB input either on the front or rear. Will the player support the Ipod and play the music, and charge at the same time?

I am also looking to go directly from the XLR analog outputs to the amp powering the front 2 channels of my audio and 5.1 channel theater setup while using the center and rear analog outputs to a 3-channel amp for those channels. Can this be done this way and will I have volume control over the movie presentation?

I have an external drive holding my music files with a USB output, can I plug that directly into the USB input of the 105, or should I stream from the computer the external drive is normally hooked up to? Which will give me better audio performance?

I have a projector in my theater that I don't want to turn on all the time I listen to music, can the Android remote control do everything I need to control the Ipod, streaming music, or direct connected external drive holding my music files?

thanks

No. It does not provide charging or input from players.
I am also looking to go directly from the XLR analog outputs to the amp powering the front 2 channels of my audio and 5.1 channel theater setup while using the center and rear analog outputs to a 3-channel amp for those channels.

Yes. The only issue may be that the XLR outputs are 6 db hotter and you will need to compensate for this.
I have an external drive holding my music files with a USB output, can I plug that directly into the USB input of the 105, or should I stream from the computer the external drive is normally hooked up to? Which will give me better audio performance?
Should be no difference in sound quality. Assuming you are streaming from the computer via DLNA or SMB. With the 105 you can also connect a computer's sound output via cables to the 105 and the 105 will act as a sound card.
I have a projector in my theater that I don't want to turn on all the time I listen to music, can the Android remote control do everything I need to control the Ipod, streaming music, or direct connected external drive holding my music files?
Someone with a projector will need to answer this.
thanks

I have tried searching for this answer in the thread but I could not find an answer to this question. I have the a Harmony remote and the 105. Is there a way to do a single button press on the Harmony that would toggle the 2.35 aspect mode on the Oppo directly without bringing up any other menus etc.? Same thing to go back to 1.85.

Thanks!

You can create sequences of actions that are activated by a single button on a Harmony. There may be some limitations but I forget what they are.

If you are referring to the vertical stretch mode that is used with an anamorphic lens,
then yes it can be done with one button press, but the timing of the button press may not be desirable.
Since it is done with the zoom button, you may have to wait until the feature starts playing before the
vertical stretch can be enabled. I believe the stretch zoom is the very first zoom mode available,
so if you were to press the zoom button more than once, you would start toggling through all the zoom modes.
Most modern projectors now also have built in stretch modes for constant image height setups,
so using the player to do the stretching is just one option.

Question about region free mod connection

Has anyone tried connecting an external region-free hardware mod to the RS-232 port and to a 500ma usb charger instead of the usb port on the bdp-105? I'd like to free up the oppo usb port for an external HD. The vendor of the hardware mod sent the following reply, unwilling to confirm that a usb charger connection wouldn't damage the mod circuitry.
On a different but related question, would it be problematic to connect a powered usb hub to the oppo to expand the number of connections for external HDs?
Thanks very much.
Harold

My exchange with the hardware mod vendor:

Would it be safe (and functional) to connect the USB mod cable to a standard output 500ma external USB charger rather than the Oppo USB port?

Is the USB cable on the mod kit used only to supply power to the kit circuitry? If so, can I free up the USB port on my BDP-105 by connecting the USB mod cable to an external USB charger? Thanks.

Their response:
Sorry I can't give a affirmative answer to your question. The USB cable on the mod kit is only to supply power to the kit circuitry, as when internally installed it can be cut off the board. Theoretically if the external charger provides same current supply as the USB port on the player does, this configuration should work. But I have never tried to connect it to a 500mA external USB charger so really don't know if that would do any harm to the board.

Best regards,

I wanted to share my experience with the Oppo BDP-105D I purchased about one month ago. Overall, I am very impressed with its video processing capabilities as my satellite box is connected to it to upscale and improve PQ. I can't comment on Blu ray quality since I never had a BD player before but it's phenomenon!
I also bought it in the notion I could use it as a Netflix streamer (which does a very good job with overall satisfying PQ). However, yesterday I discovered, while exploring the Netflix app on my LG OLED, that Netflix provide a lot more subtitles (such as Herbrew, Russian, Romanian, Arabic and more) that I wasn't even aware that are available because on Oppo's Netflix I was only able to choose between English and Polish subtitles!
I contacted Netflix regarding this matter and after chatting with them for more than 40min (while he checked the issue with their tech team), he informed me that because the Netflix version on the Oppo is outdated, it doesn't support the streaming of all the subtitles that are available from Netflix (my version is 2013.2.4). Netflix also said there shouldn't be a problem for Oppo to provide an updated version of Netflix for their Blu Ray players and they will also forward this matter to Oppo in order to speed up this process up. After ending my conversation with Netflix, I decided to send an email to Oppo to find out if they are aware of this issue or have a fix for that.
Here is their respond to my inquiry:

"Eliran,

Unfortunately the player will not support Unicode, and we do not have any font libraries for foreign languages like Hebrew. We do hope to allow for this in our upcoming UHD players as they have new increased functionality and memory functions.

Best Regards,

Customer Service "


I wasn't expecting to receive such answer from a reputable company who is renowned for their "fantastic" customer service. I just paid one month ago 1800$ for a Blu Ray player that I am not able to get any updates for its applications? Moreover, this is something they are proud of and market it as a Netflix media support. It even has a special button on the remote for 'Netflix' so providing this small update is impossible?! I just bought their flagship player and now because they are about to release a new player, I need to buy the new one instead in order to enjoy the "new" capabilities?!
The other thing that doesn't make any sense is the support of Unicode that the representative claimed the player doesn't support. How come I am able to watch movies with foreign subtitles such as Hebrew using a simple SRT file? If there was no support by the player, I wouldn't be able to do that. How come in the 'Setup Menu' under 'Language' I can choose Hebrew in the 'Subtitle Language' section?
The worst part is that before I purchased the Oppo and I went to the store, they confirmed the full support of all languages even on Netflix! That is a big mislead and I really feel like I got cheated!

I would be happy to hear your experience regarding to these issues, if anyone encountered them. Also, it will be a great thing if some of the owners will complain about this issue too so maybe putting some pressure on Oppo will lead to a good outcome.

Thanks!

Your issue seems to be primarily with the functionality and limitations of the interface for external streaming services built into the Oppo. I use a Roku 3 with the hdmi input on the oppo. Now, you have the full functionality of all Roku streaming channels (that are kept current) with the benefit of superior audio and video processing of the oppo. Best of both worlds.
