There has been a lot of discussion of the hardware region free mods and the success rate with those has been very high.
The are plenty of forums where the oppo jailbreak firmware is talked about openly, but most are paid and private. For whatever reason it is not welcome here on AVS but talk of region modification is ok, along with the ripping of blu rays and dvd's.
On the two forums I post on, the jailbreak firmware or "rogue firmware" (if you are Dave) has a success rate of 100%. It is also easily reversible to go back to stock firmware if you would so desire. That firmware along with the build quality of the 103D is what made me purchase two more machines! I was a beta tester for the oppo 83 way back when and have always had an
Oppo since then.
The next best machine from Oppo (imo) was the 93 with the "rogue firmware"....sorry, that was actually an official firmware...that played ISO.

Hi
Does the new beta firmware address the "3 hour audio bug"? Im thinking not, but thought I would ask anyway.
Thanks
Rob

I still like "rogue". It's more unique and doesn't sound like it's something used for an iOS device.

Seems like at least one out of every 5-10 disks won't "boot up"/play on my 103D and I must shift to my PS3 which always works. I know that the PS3 should be more reliable; but the number of failures on the 103D seems high to me. Latest example was "The Longest Ride" which required the PS3 yesterday.


Does anyone else experience this kind of failure rate? If my problem rate is high, any suggestions on problems/fixes? Thanks.

I'd suggest cleaning the laser, or just contact OPPO support for their recommendations.

Yikes. No, that's not normal. Not sure why you think the PS3 would be more reliable. As Bill suggested, you should figure out what's wrong and/or contact Oppo support.

Only said the PS3 would be more reliable because I've read quite a few times (some on this thread I believe) that most of the content providers test their disks on the PS3 because of its wide usage. Therefore it's less likely to have trouble with specific disks than the OPPO.


Per Bill's recommendation, I'll try cleaning the laser and see if that makes a difference.

Haven't had any not start in six years / two players (83 and 103D). As Bill and Mr. Pants say, something is off, should be cleaned or looked at.

How do you clean the laser? Just use one of the old school CDs with the brushes or simply squirt air in there?

You need to open the player and drive, then swab it with a q-tip. Do not put ANYTHING in the drive that has brushes.

If I already have a Darbee DVP5000 is there any reason to get this version over the standard 103?

The video processing results will be the same either way.

And the wiring path is simpler with the DVP5000 - just put it after your AVR and route all your players through the AVR. No need to send signals back-and-forth between the Oppo and the AVR - the AVR will almost always have more inputs available than the Oppo.

An outboard DVP5000 is the route I went with my Oppo 93 - it, my Amazon Fire TV box, my old Panny player, my cable box, my VCR, and my RCA capacitive disk player all get the benefit of the Darbee, since the AVR converts even older video connections to HDMI.

Just download (CD) the new Beta Firmware - went smoothly, no problems

https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-...-79-0711B.aspx

This release is for the OPPO BDP-103, BDP-103D, BDP-105 and BDP-105D Blu-ray Disc players.

  1. Once this Public Beta firmware is installed on the player, you can revert back to the previous Official release via a USB thumb drive. There will be no issues upgrading to any future official or beta firmware release.
  2. This Public Beta firmware is designed to work with new versions of Apple iOS and Android MediaControl applications, which added support for TIDAL Music Streaming. The Media Control V4.0 will be available in the App Store and the Google Play Store shortly.

  1. Added support for TIDAL Music Streaming. Requires use of OPPO MediaControl App v4.0 on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Improved subtitle support for user-created media.

  6. Resolved an issue where AIFF file playback would result in white noise when headphones were connected to the BDP-105(D).
  7. Resolved a bass management issue where the subwoofer would clip when 0 dB signals were sent to all channels when one speaker was set to small.
  8. Resolved a frame rate conversion issue where 25 Hz and 50 Hz user-created media was converted to 60 Hz when TV System was set to Multi.
  9. Resolved an audio loss issue that could occur with MKV files with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA audio tracks.
  10. Added support for ARIB STD-B25 and ISDB fonts.
  11. General disc compatibility improvements based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.
All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

Wow I think this might just have to be the beta release I can't wait for.
Both a fix for dolby true-hd in mkv files(9). And the smearing in netflix(5) (I don't consider it a big problem I just notice it a lot).

On top of adding Tidal support (I swapped from spotify to Tidal a while back)

The oppo 103d looks to be the very best investment I have made so far for my AV usage ever

Audio Return channel

I hope this topic hasn't been beaten to death, but I came up empty searching.

Today, CBS channel 8 became unavailable from DirecTV and I needed (seriously) to watch the Chargers/Cowboys game.

I get basic cable and HD broadcast channels through my ISP (Cox), where I have a cable plugged into my Samsung TV cable input. I have HDMI from my BDP 103D to the TV HDMI input with ARC. I can watch from the cable input on the TV but I would like to hear the sound too.

The TV should be sending audio through the ARC to the oppo but I do not hear it through my Onkyo AVR when the oppo is selected as an input. Is there a way to send ARC sound from the TV to oppo to AVR or should I just turn on the TV speakers to listen when needed?

The ARC used to work when my TV was connected to the AVR but since I switched the connection to the oppo directly, I get no ARC sound. I use the DirecTV box on the HDMI Back input.

Might be and I am just guessing here.

That even though you are getting the audio feed through the oppo that you still need to set the avr to Tv input for the arc audio

I want my 103D networked with cable for the high bitrate streaming + lossless audio when using SMB but I would also like to use the new app which I guess only works for wi-fi. No way using both I guess? :/

No, that's not true. If the player and the app are on the same network then all is well. How they're connected is not an issue.

But it can't be same network? The app need the routers wifi network to connect to and to use my TP-cable streaming I need the cable attached to the Oppo. And you can't choose both in menu, either one.

Sorry, I'm not quite following; I don't know about TP-cable streaming.

You have a local area network in the house. It has both wired and wireless access. The player can be wired, and your phone or tablet can connect wirelessly to the same network, right?

Network means same cluster of addresses (ip) not necessarily connection type.
It is the routers very job to pass the connections on wifi as if they are the same LAN as the wired section (unless you specifically set it up to be a separate network, because you don't want the two to communicate)

In essence if you can use the oppo remote app you can use it for tidal when firmware is ready.

The tablet or phone only tells the player where to find the things to play on the service, the oppo then goes on the internet by its own devices to get your music its not passed through the tablet or phone (its beasically just a remote).

You have a local area network in the house. It has both wired and wireless access. The player can be wired, and your phone or tablet can connect wirelessly to the same network, right?

Hmm no I have 1 wireless network. The streaming from my PC to Oppo is through SMB sharing using a wired network cable for stability. The Oppo app needs a wireless network right? But the Oppo isn't on that network since I must choose between wireless or wired in the setup menu on the Oppo. Or am I understanding it wrong?

You are misunderstanding. The OPPO setup determines how the player connects to the network. Once connected, if can speak to any other device on the same network, however they are connected. At that level, these devices don't know or care how everyone is connected. Wired + wireless = 1 network, not 2.

All the networked devices work like this, not just the OPPO.
