3) Erase Persistent Storage -- Setup > Device Setup > Persistent Storage

4) Erase Accounts and Settings -- Setup > Device Setup > Reset Factory Defaults > Erase Accounts and Settings.

5) Turn the player off. While it is off, unplug it from wall power. While it remains unplugged press and hold the Power button on the Front Panel for a few seconds to discharge any residual power. This insures even the lowest levels of the hardware will reboot on the next power up.

6) Plug the player in, and power it back up.

7) Reload your saved settings from the USB stick -- Setup > Device Setup > Settings Management.

8) Power cycle the player once more. Settings are saved as the player powers down.

9) NOTE: You will need to re-enter your User ID & Password credentials for things like Netflix.

10) See if this has fixed your problem.


It should *NOT* be necessary to do a Reset after a firmware install these days. The firmware installer does a form of Reset in the background as part of the install. However, it does no harm to try it, and it MIGHT fix your problem before you spend time trying other diagnostic steps.

Other folks talking about this Netflix/Vudu audio problem here have reported that setting HDMI Audio to LPCM is also a workaround.
--Bob
Hi Bob,

I tired what you suggested and I'm also still having the same issue. I switched the audio out to LPCM and that seems to have resolved the Netflix issue. Haven't had a chance to test VUDU yet. I emailed OPPO about it and they suggested using HDMI 1 for video and HDMI 2 for audio. That ain't gonna happen cause I have a projector and I'm not about to go through the hassle of running a second HDMI line to it. Besides it's kind of a brute force fix for something that's obviously software related.

Thanks very much for the suggestion though. Much appreciated.

Please inform Oppo on the issue you are having and share their response with us.

Updated the software on Saturday. I tried watching something in 3D yesterday and got a message about not being connected to a 3D display. Never had that before the software update. So I just did a power cycle and then the 3D worked.

However, now when I skip around the chapters it studders with each 3D chapter jump. It also didn't do that before. No studdering with chapter jumping in 2D.

I think oppo needs to put this software version back in the oven for a bit longer.

I didn't get around to installing the beta, and I think I'll hold off on this final release as well. My configuration pushes the envelope enough as it is with my old HDMI ±1.1 receiver in the mix so I'll just wait and see.

(I only have m/c LPCM as an option with Oppo doing the lossless conversion; don't stream or anything, except once in a while via Roku which I now have to feed through Oppo to even get 5.1 audio; I do watch 3D blu-ray every once in a while, but only directly connected to tv (split a/v); forced 1080p/24 thru the receiver works, but it has to be forced; etc. Don't use Apple TV enough to know whether my only getting stereo the last couple times I played with it is that same situation as with Roku... my ISP was doing fine for a while, but now they've clogged up the pipe, so I can't stream directv any more (so I am going to pester them again about my speeds in a few weeks if that persists (I'm paying them enough for upgraded service I shouldn't be having any problem with simple 1080i (or even 1080p for that matter))), plus haven't checked Roku lately come to think of it (and maybe Apple TV is same situation?)).

Quick question. Is anyone using a wireless USB keyboard with this player? I'd like to add one, but wanted to find out if folks have had good luck with it first before I go out and buy one.

I've been running on the Beta for a while and noticed it was finalized but despite being connected to the internet I have not received the final update. I know I can just download it via USB but I wanted to check in to see if this is any indication of a problem?

United States..... when I click the update via Web it tells me the firmware is up to date but its clearly not because it has the B alpha letter at the end of the version.

You can download the official version 0715 to your computer for install into the OPPO via a USB stick. The instructions are here:

http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-b...e-83-0715.aspx

My guess is you are having some glitch getting the version comparison info from the Update Server.

When you finish doing the install, go into Setup > Device Setup > Firmware Information and compare each of the firmware version numbers against the ones listed on that Support page. (0715 is the version number for just the Main firmware.)

If you find that any of the firmware versions is out of date, give OPPO Tech Support a call or email and they can get you what you need to complete the update.

Oppo 103 D 4k conversion question

I own a 103d going into a 1080p TV. I am considering upgrading to a 4k TV. My question is for those that play Blu Ray discs and upconvert it to a 4k TV, how is the PQ and how noticeable is the difference coming from the 103d? Is there a small difference in PQ or a big difference? I know this is a general question and many responses will be it depends on blah blah blah so I am not asking that. What I am asking is what did you see when YOU upgraded to a new 4k TV? Was it worth it? Or was the PQ just as good on YOUR old 1080p tv? Thanks

Guess I should add I'm only talking about still using the 103d, NOT a newer device.

I've got a 105 and I just bought an LG 65" E6 OLED. Blu-ray looks great on my 4K screen, better than it did on the 6 year old Panasonic plasma it replaced. Colours are better, the image looks a bit sharper (I upscale to 4K in the 105), and the display is brighter than the plasma with better contrast than my plasma had. Small difference or a big difference? That's up to the viewer but I'm glad I made the change. I also bought the Samsung 4K player as a stopgap so I could watch UHD discs while waiting for the next Oppo player to be released. UHD 4K discs look even better than BD. I continue to use my 105 for BD and DVD content.

Just remember that not all Blu-ray discs look really great on a good 1080p display and a disc which doesn't look brilliant on a 1080p display is not going to look brilliant on a 4K display. Also remember that just as there are great 1080p displays and less good ones, there are great 4K displays and less great ones. What you see is going to depend on what display you buy and the quality of what you play on it. If you replace a great 1080p display with an average 4K display, you may see a lot less improvement than you like. You can get what I think is a big difference but I also bought one of the most expensive 65" 4K screens available. Not everyone is likely to feel as willing to spend as much as I did, and cost/benefit perceptions are very personal.

Are some users still having a No Audio issue with Netflix and Vudu? I went back to bitstream last night from LPCM and it looks like the no audio issue fixed it shelf! Strange I know I did nothing different. Was wondering if maybe Oppo did something on ther end.

Having the same issue. If I shut everything off, turn it on and go into Netflix or Vudu, no audio. It also happens also on MKV files that are DTS - no sound.

My workaround is to go to my MKV files and play one that is LPCM. I do that once or twice and I get the sound back until the system is turned off. Then no sound again.

System is:

Vizio sv472xvt, Pioneer Elite VSX-33, Oppo 103D, Comcast X1.

Thanks David. Just the info I was looking for. Coming from an old Sony 53xbr300 and looking at the Samsung KS8000 or LG 65b6. Thanks again.

Don't know what the Samsung is like. The LG B6 is very nice. LG say that the B6/C6E6/G6 all have similar picture quality but I have also seen reports that there are better calibration options on the G6 which may make a difference, but at a huge difference in price to the B6. At the stage I bought my E6 I had not seen one on display. I had seen a B6 and a G6 and they looked pretty similar in picture quality. I went for the E6 because I wanted a flat screen and 3D. The B6 doesn't do 3D and the E6 was the cheapest new OLED model with a flat screen and 3D. If you don't want 3D I think the B6 delivers the best value for money in LG's 2016 OLED range.

My Samsung JS9500 does a better job upconverting than the 103D. That's probably the case with any of the better 2016 UHD displays. I suggest you test the two methods with the display you actually obtain; however, I'm betting that outputting "native" from the 103D is the best option.

Bought an Oppo 103D - now baffled

Now riddle me this:

I have a Marantz 7702 pre/pro properly configured with Audyssey. Power amps are all Emotivas. DIY 1299 LCR speakers. My old player was a Sony BDP S6500- probably one of the best "cheap" players. Was connected to the 7702 via HDMI cable.

For the longest time I have suffered of somewhat muddy center channel. Experimented a lot, got better, but still muddy.

Bought last week an Oppo 103D. Plugged it in via same HDMI cable and presto- crystal clear center channel.

Huh? What did I miss? This should not be happening if I know a thing or two about HDMI and how blu ray players send their audio data to the pre/pro.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Had the center channel ever sounded good, or was it always muddy from the start??

it has always sounded muddy when playing a blu ray surround sound. well, at least with the sony, but i have not plugged other players (besides the new oppo) to have a baseling...

....and now all of a sudden with the oppo- center channel is crystal clear.

makes me question if sony was doing something funny with the audio stream. but why even bother processing/ changing it on a cheapo player?
