Guys here is the fix for the Netflix/Vudu no audio signal from the desk of Oppo.
Basically copy and paste and transfer to a usb stick, load the stick on he Oppo player and should automatically update.
I already this this and YES it's fixed. Read below from Oppo:


We have developed a firmware for the BDP-10xD series of players were audio from Netflix and VUDU would not come through when using a single HDMI cable to particular receivers. You can upgrade the firmware of the player by downloading the 83-0918B BDP10x.BIN file (http://download.oppodigital.com/BDP0...ion/BDP10X.bin) and transferring it to a FAT32 formatted USB drive. The player should prompt you to upgrade, and if not, then go into Device Setup and Firmware Upgrade then VIA USB. Follow the onscreen prompts to upgrade the firmware of the player.

If you find, for whatever reason, that you need to use the current Official Firmware, then you can do so by downloading its BIN file (http://download.oppodigital.com/BDP1...715/BDP10X.bin) and replacing the BDP10x.BIN on your flashdrive. Then go into Device Setup and Firmware Upgrade then Via USB.

These might be stupid questions, but I'll ask anyway. I just bought a Sony 75-940D (previously had a 1080p plasma set).

I know the 103D can't accept any 4K input, but should I set the Output Resolution and the 4Kx2K Output to Auto? I presume the Oppo will detect the 4K capability of the Sony and upscale as appropriate. Is there any benefit to doing that as opposed to letting the Sony upscale everything?

If I do make those settings, will the Netflix app on the Oppo output 4K material to the Sony? What about HDR?

^ The Netflix app in the 10x players streams up to 1080p content, and without HDR. It would have to be that way as the 10x players can not play *ANY* content which is already 4K.

As for setting the player to deliver upscaled 4K to your 4K-capable display, it's hard to predict which will be better. The best advice is to just try both ways and see which one you like. If you can't tell a difference, stick with 1080p output as that is less likely to produce random HDMI handshake problems.

It's not just a matter of whether the player or the display does a better job of upscaling. The processing path in the display for 1080p and 4K is almost certainly different.

Since MOST content fed into the display will be 1080p, the display may have been optimized to handle 1080p best, for example. Also, processing 4K input takes more processing power. Again, the answer here is to just try it both ways and see which you like.

To add to Bob's comment about Netflix:

There is what I'll call a "handshake" between the Netflix app on whatever device you're using and the Netflix server so the server is aware of what kind of content the app can handle. The content listings you will see will only list those versions of a program that your subscription allows and that the app on your device can handle. I've got an LG E6 OLED, a Samsung UHD player, and an Oppo 105. All have Netflix apps and my subscription includes 4K content. The Oppo can't handle UHD so I only get listings showing HD and SD offerings when I use the Oppo's app. The Samsung can handle UHD and the HDR10 version of high dynamic range so it lists the highest resolution of what versions are available and shows the HDR10 flag if the program is available in HDR10 but never shows a Dolby Vision flag. The LG app shows the highest resolution available and sill show Dolby Vision flags as well as HDR10 flags. Of course, if your subscription does not include 4K you will never be shown the 4K versions.

Since your Oppo can't process 4K material, you will need to use the Netflix app on the Sony TV and pass the audio from the TV to your system via ARC or digital output (usually optical). Use bitstream output for the audio because if you use LPCM output some displays down mix the output to stereo so you will lose multichannel audio. Bitstream output should preserve multichannel audio if the program has it.

Apart from upgrading your Netflix subscription to include 4K if you need to, using the TV's netflix app, and getting the audio to your system there is only one other thing to consider. That's your internet connection. Netflix say that HD requires a 5 mbps download speed connection and UHD requires a 25 mbps download speed connection. Check what speeds you can get from your ISP. Using a speed test app, my download speed clocks in around the 22-23 mbps rate and I can stream 4K material without any problems but if your connection speed is much lower than that you may have to pay for a higher speed connection in order to be able to stream 4K material successfully. I wasn't certain whether I could get by with my connection or if I needed to be able to get a minimum of 25 mbps so I tried it and haven't had any problems so if your download speed is not too far below 25 mbps then I'd try it and see what happens but if your download speed is too low then you will need a faster connection as well.

Thanks, Bob and David. I suspected much of the info you provided. I just got the TV, and I'm still in a free month of Netflix. I was pretty sure I'd have to use the apps on the TV to get 4K and HDR10. My internet connection is 100 mbps, so I should be okay. I tested the ARC feature the other night, and it has some side effects, so I might have to enable it on an as-needed basis.

So excited about the new UHD player that I have listed my 103D and Region Free kit in the Classifieds.

I'll never abandon Oppo, but I feel at this point like we are growing up together....

I started with the 80, then the 83 ( a breakthrough product on so many levels), then the 93, then the 103, then the 103D. I think I know what you mean.
But personally, although I may be growing older, I never plan to grow up.

But one feature I would like on the new Oppo 203 would be Amazon Video. As an Amazon Prime member this would be great. Don't know why it hasn't happened already.

Basically because Amazon isn't interested. It takes two to tango...

It`s like "Apple TV" , no AIV either , and again both parties are fine with that.

Amazon sells there "Fire-Stick" , and not all "Smart TV`s" will have AIV either , the new "Andriod-TV`s" kind of have to. Other will make you wait ( think Vizio ).

Later

I believe they have, but Amazon would rather dance by itself while Oppo leans against the wall holding its tiny beaded pocketbook.

Yes, it supports GPT partitioning, which is what you need to go larger than 2TB.

'F' Amazon! That's all I have to say and they've got their minions reading this. I know because Jeff Bozo wants everything for himself, basically tries to kill off everyone and then have it all under Amazon (remember the bookstores?). That said, I'm not sure if you guys recall this when the latest Apple TV released, Amazon basically banned it from selling on their portal. So obvious ain't it.
Back to subject regarding OPPO supports MKV with True-HD; the answer is YES!

Hi,

The answer to my question may already be in the thread, I confess I have not read through the whole thing sorry!

Where do I find the unit´s production date? On the box? Will I be able to tell if the unit has been sold and returned (for whatever reason)?

A shop near me recently got the 103D in stock, and I am considering placing an order, however the price is, well, steep.. and I am of course aware of the new 203 around the corner.
If I buy the 103D at this point, I want to make sure I get a brand new one...

Thanks

I don't know the answer to your highlighted question(I'm sure someone here does), so excuse me for answering... but two quick points.
1- If you order a new 103D directly from Oppo you will get a new in the box 103D.
2- If you are lucky enough to contact Oppo and they have a refurbished 103D for sale, buy it. You will save money on a unit that has been gone over with a fine tooth comb at a discounted price. They aren't available often, and there may be people on a waiting list in front of you, so good luck.

If the price of the unit at your local dealer is steep (more than Oppo charges for the 103D + shipping) then forget them and order through Oppo or Amazon-- especially if you have Amazon Prime.

^ Manufacturing date is on a sticky label on the back panel that also includes the Serial Number.

Typical signs that a unit has been sold and returned would be the protective plastic sheet removed form the Front Panel, or the batteries removed from their shrink wrap and installed in the remote.

If you buy direct from OPPO, they do not re-sell returned units as "new". Indeed, they are not allowed to. But they do sell "Refurbished" units, at a modest discount, and including a full, new unit warranty. Refurbished units appear for sale on their OPPO Digital web store now and again. They are usually snapped up immediately. Some folks have had luck just calling and asking if Refurbished units are available.

Tom, thanks for your input.
I should have mentioned that I am located in Norway, Scandinavia, so ordering directly from Oppo is not an option. (import tax will nearly double the prize). I follow avsforum because the knowledge and information you people have on AV beats anything in this part of the world by a landslide

I have been saving up for a while, so I definitely want a brand new one. I am very intrigued by the Darbee processing, and will mainly watch dvd/blu, and wait a couple of years before going UHD.

Only a few retailers have the 103D here, and they are quickly sold out..

Thanks again;

M

OK,
Back panel/protective plastic. Got it, thanks Bob.

As above post mentions, I´m not in the US, so I cannot order directly from Oppo. (Should have mentioned it in the first post, sorry about about that). I do trust the shop here that recently got it in stock, but the market for these players almost non-existent here, and and wanted to know what to look for when they sell me something new!
And now I know Thanks again
