Duh, I know. That's why I said "not your best guess". You thought it would more likely be later than sooner, if ever. Three days later they released it. I was merely "pulling your chain". I would not have done it if I thought you would take offense. You're welcome.

Hi Guy`s ,

I am not going to read the previous pages , but I did the latest update from Oppo on my 103D.

Am I screwed or is this an OK update , I truly don`t use it that much and have not turned it on since it turned itself off after the update.

I might want to sometime watch Sandra Bullock floating in space in 3D one last time before my F8000 ____S`s T B

Thanks ,

Later ,

Gary. 

Guys,

I really need your help, i am sure this was already discussed before but i cannot find the solution...

I have my oppo 103d connected to a htpc via ethernet. my goal is to push my flac's from the HTPC to the oppo, while using an app (ios) to control playback.
any server/method i tried (including serviio, kodi, smb and ntfs on the htpc) is not working properly, whether i am using the OPPO app of any other dlna apps i tried (like Creation 5).

sometimes the Oppo "freezes", sometimes it does not display the correct song title and doesn't display tracks at all...

can you recommend a good and reliable and "smooth working" solution achieve my goal??

Thank you!

Yaniv

Hi, my 103d is connected to an AVR and in turn the AVR is connected to a projector. However listening to music on the 103, I connect a small monitor to the video diagnostic of the 103d for navigation purposes and playing music but when I turn the AVR selection to the hdmi of 103d, I would lose display on the small monitor. How can I enable display on the diagnostic output together with hdmi connection for hi-rez music listening? Thanks.

With my 103, I use the free Windows BubbleUPnP Server, which acts as an intermediary between a DLNA server (I use the $20 Twonky, which has the twin virtues of being able to be set to autoupdate its index when new files are added and of displaying album art while browsing, not just while playing) and various control point apps, like the $5 Android BubbleUPnP or an iOs control point.

BubbleUPnP Server not only can turn normal DLNA renderers into Open Home renderers, with volume control in the control point and the ability to continue to advance while the control point is disconnected, but it can also let you use the Android app, or Foobar 2000 with the free Foo_UPnP plugin (which the same guy also wrote) to access and play music from your library remotely over the net.

Since the Oppo won't play gaplessly over DLNA, I also have my Yamaha RX-A1030 AVR set up in BubbleUPnP Server as a Gapless Open Home renderer, for playing gapless stereo recordings. (Unfortunately, it plays multichannel FLACs as simple stereo, so I end up using different renderers for different materials, since the Oppo renders 5.1 FLACs as 5.1, and can render videos this way, while the AVR doesn't render video at all.)

Here's the link for all of this but Twonky: http://www.bubblesoftapps.com/bubbleupnpserver
For Twonky go to http://www.twonky.com

Hi all,

I am having problems with my 103D in recent months, the audio out via HDMI 2 Output (to my Yamaha soundbar) is unstable...
I tried all the HDMI inputs of my Yamaha, still no sound most of the time, it's rather unlikely that all 3 inputs break down

I now use optical for audio output and works fine so far, do you guys think it is the problem of the HDMI 2 Output? Anyone has problems like this?

Have you tried a new high speed HDMI cable?

Special Notice:
  1. Once this Public Beta firmware is installed on the player and if you want to revert back to the the latest official release firmware (BDP10X-83-0715), the only way is to revert back to BDP10X-80-1031 via USB first and then upgrade to BDP10X-83-0715 via USB or via Network. There will be no issues upgrading to any future official or beta firmware release.

Optimizing for DVD Playback

There is a nice write-up somewhere here in the forums about how to configure a BD player and associated gear to get the best picture quality with DVDs. Of course, now that I want to refer to it again, I can't find it. Could someone please post a link to the write-up?

Thanks,
Jack

I'm not recalling that specific writeup, but on the OPPO you'll just want to stick with 1080p output resolution. The rest depends on your display and the calibration it needs.

Thanks for the response, Bill. Coulda sworn I saw a posting that covered a number of options and suggested settings to use.

The FAQ has this, but there is not much about DVD video quality: What are the recommended settings for the OPPO BDP-103?

Correct output on the Oppo 103D for 4k display

Just to confirm...pls....I got an Oppo 103D connected directly to a KS8000 and I want to maximize the picture quality from the Oppo. I hear that this Samsung TV has a better upscaler than the Oppo. Is this true? Is the 4Kx2K the correct HDMI output in the Oppo? so is the TV doing the upscaling? I just want to get the most quality of the bluray movies I own...lots of them!
I will get a dedicated 4K player later...thanks for the help. The TV really makes movies look awesome.

You should trust your eyes and try it both ways. I suspect the results will be very similar, but it is hard to make a certain rule for all combinations.

I use 4k from the player.

You'll be getting the Darbee effect either way.

Set the Oppo to output 1080p if you want the TV to do scaling. But as Bill said you should try it both ways and use what looks right.

Good morning everyone.

Here is a question I have; Should I sell my 103D now and upgrade to a 203 or keep the 103D for the foreseeable future?

I bought my 103D about a year ago. While I have been very happy with its performance my current projector really limits the true potential of this player. My current projector is an EPSON 8500ub that I bought around 2011. My plan was to wait until a good quality native 4K projector is released that sells in my price range before upgrading. My price being about $2,000 to maybe $2,500 max if I really wanted to stretch. The problem is that I just do not see this happening anytime soon. At least not for the next several years. In light of this I have started considering projectors that offer pixel shifting technology to achieve 4K resolution. The Epson 5040ub being my main focus point. If I do go this route it will be at least 5 years before I upgrade projectors again.

So will the 203 generate a better picture than the 103D given that the projector will not be native 4K? If I am looking at this right the 203 player is only a benefit if I was to have a true native 4K projector to display the image. Since I won't then the 103D will be just as good. Is that a correct assumption?

Thanks all.

I sold my 103D and a few weeks later I repurchased it used... I like the Darbee for 1080p sources. If you don't care the 500$ I would keep it for all Blu Ray.
