Thanks DanF8500. I have tested going from Oppo to AVR, then AVR to projector and there doesn't appear to be video degradation.

Good to hear. That is by far the simplest configuration. I go through my Marantz AV8801 for convenience with all processing disabled with no problems.

Thank you for the reply.

Local .mkv files on a USB Stick.

I don't know the format of the subtitles, how can I find that out??

They work fine in the PS3 Media Server streamed, and locally on my PC using VLC Media player, but not locally in my 105D.... I cannot seem to find a setting that may allow them to work, perhaps this player does not do some types of subtitles on local .mkv files??

Take care....

Was it difficult to install that kit?? Does it degrade the picture quality in any way??

TIA

Are the subtitles embedded in the MKV container, or in separate files?

There are free utilities MediaInfo and mvkinfo (which is part of the mkvmerge package) which will give you details on the container and the data within it.

I appreciate the help. They are embedded. I'll research the type.

Make sure you use the Subtitle button to select the subtitle track you want to use, as the player does not support forced subtitles in MKV containers.

Does anyone have their 105D hooked up in a balanced 2 channel setup? Curious to the sound quality for 2 channel hi end audio

yep of course. that is pretty much the whole purpose of the -105 model, along with digital audio inputs and headphone amp too.
balanced 2ch direct to amps sounds superb. smile.gif

Any input on the headphone output? I have some Audeze LCD2 Headphones, wonder how well the Oppo can drive them

Initially, I connected my 105D via 1m Kimber Hero XLR's. The sound was good but it did not blow me away. Last night, I swapped out the Kimbers for a pair of 1m RCA Harmonic Technology Magic Link Two interconnects. Suddenly, the heavens opened up and I heard that extremely musical sound I had hoped for. The Harm Techs cost approximately four times more than the Kimbers, so I guess I should not be that surprised the sound improved so substantially. Nevertheless, I concluded that a great RCA interconnect can sometimes beat a very good XLR interconnect, and by a wide margin.

^ Theoretically, the only difference between the 105D's dedicated stereo rca and xlr outputs is that the xlr outputs are 6 db hotter than the rca outputs. At full volume, the 105D has an output level of 2.1V rms via its rca outputs, and 4.2 V rms via its xlr outputs.

Thank you, I did not notice a subtitle button, I will do this!!

Ordered the BDP-105D today!
Rebellion's Avatar Rebellion 06:44 PM 02-04-2014
Hey guys! I am considering buying a BDP-105D (I have a BDP-93 now) Just a question, does the Oppo still allow AVCHD playback over SMB? If i have my blu-ray movies backed up and ripped to the BDMV folder structure, will it play it like the full blu-ray movie? I can do this with any USB Hard Drive locally, just wondering if I can do this over network now?

No, and it doesn't work on local storage either.

There is a free utility that will "bless" AVCHD backups to make them playable. That should work for SMB and local storage, but there is no way of knowing how long the technique will work.

What?! They completely removed that functionality in the new players? I am on the latest firmware with my BDP-93 and it can still play the folder structure it as if I am playing a Disc movie when I plug in my Hard Drive.

Yes, the rules change with new players.

Yes I found this so called "blessing". Heres hoping its not messed with. Is this due to the CInavia protection?

No, that is yet another DRM complication. The -83 and -93 models ignore Cinavia because of their age. The -103 and after must detect and respect Cinavia, although currently that happens only on optical disc. That too may change in the future. As the studios see how people are getting around the copy protection measures they tighten the rules.

Thank you for the unboxing photos! I was in such a rush to open mine and connect it, that never dawned on me. Can is use your photos on my "under construction" HT web page? I will of course keep your tag and name intact on the bottom right.

BTW folks, just to re-state. The picture this player produces is nothing short of "jaw-dropping". Very happy with it. I have not yet experimented with Darbee.

Nice pictures Dog_Dealer. Long term, you may want to move the BDP-105 since the Mac is likely heat it up wink.gif

I suppose the answer to my questions may appear in the 105 thread, but I was unable to find them.

Can the 105D output through the 7.1 analog channels while simultaneously outputting through the stereo analog/XLR connections? I so, I would like to run 2 zones at once from the OPPO.

Also, my plan was to connect the Oppo via HDMI 1 to the TV and send the analog 7.1 to the Sherbourn PT-7030. Of course, by using the Sherbourn Preamp, I would be able to play different sources into different zones which would not be possible if using the OPPO by itself.

Which leads me to my 2nd question: Will the quality of the signal output from the OPPO be degraded in any way by the Sherbourn Preamp DACs? If so, I am not sure I am going to use the PT-7030 in this particular room despite the zone flexibility it would afford.

Yes. You can use the multi-channel 7.1 AND the dedicated stereo outputs simultaneously. You just need to make the correct settings in the player menus to make it happen.
I am not familiar enough with the PT-7030 to say whether or not it will cleanly pass through the analog audio without coloring the sound.
Maybe someone more familiar will chime in on that, or you could ask in the thread(s) dedicated to Sherbourn or your specific model.
