Thanks so much!
ISO: no. MKV: Yes.

The OPPO uses the Gracenote online service for cover art and catalog info, but the results for media files are sometimes not very accurate.

You can connect the HDMI output of the HTPC to the HDMI input of the player. You'll need two remotes to operate everything. I do this with XBMC on a small PC, too.

Ahh! Thanks for that Bill!

That seems the way to go linking my Htpc to the oppo via Hdmi. Am guessing the Htpc acts as the actual main player and the oppo is just passing the signal through with a bit of darbee in the mix?

Just wanna confirm one thing. If we do it like that, picture wise this can be achieved (ie darbee can be used and PQ would be similar to playing it on player disc or usb) but audio wise if one were to bitstream using the hdmi in of the 103d, it won't handle the DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD, right? Only DTS and DD 5.1 can be heard respectively.

Well, officially yes but technically speaking the hardware is able to read in iso among others. I'll say no more.

on a side note, my Samsung 8550 does a better job upscaling to 4k than the Oppo.
the Darby does remain functional when outputting 4k set to auto, forced, auto (50/60p) and forced (50/60p).

The inputs support:

  • stereo and 5.1 LPCM up to 192KHz, 7.1 LPCM up to 96KHz.
  • Lossy Dolby Digital and DTS up to 7.1.
  • Dolby Digital Plus up to 7.1.

Meaning if one were to accidentally bitstream DTS-HD and TrueHD, no sound can be heard, right? One has to make sure the inputs to the hdmi-in are like you stated?

I believe that's correct. I haven't tried it myself, but people have reported "no audio" when trying the HD audio formats.

I tried connecting a WD-TV Live streamer through one of the HDMI-IN ports and that's exactly what happens, it will play the base DD 5.1 and DTS tracks but not the DTS-HD MA and DolbyTrueHD tracks.
