Anyone using the latest iSedora (2.0.6) with their Oppo BDP-83? It improves in all the areas I was hoping for, but there's one small problem with it-- .mkv files created with HandBrake prior to 0.10.0 are not playable. Most of my library consists of .mkv files created with older versions.

Do the same files play from a USB stick? In other words - is it the files or the DLNA server.

If the exact same files play via USB and not via iSodora, then I would suspect transcoding in iSodora is the issue. Try turning transcoding off for video.
If the files don't play via USB, then it is either the Oppo or the files.

Display: Panasonic P60UT50 (Plasma)

Well, I'll do one better-- the files play fine on version 1.7.9 of iSedora! My files always play fine via USB, but DLNA is where it gets iffy.

I'm more curious about other BDP-83 owners using iSedora. I've tried other software and iSedora has been my favorite, and like I said, the latest version improves quite a bit except for this problem. I've already been in contact with the support people.

I have a 103 on the way and there is a task I'd like to perform but cannot find a direct answer for. Probably because it's so basic, hmmmm. I'll be storing a bunch of music on a USB flash drive connected to the 103. I would like to add music files to it on occasion and would prefer to to it via my network. You see, I can be super lazy and would rather not have to unplug the drive and walk across the room to the Mac to add files lol. So, please let me know the simplest way to go to my Mac and push files to that USB drive. Thanks in advance

Cannot be done.

The player can access files on the Mac if you run a DLNA server on the computer, as discussed in this thread.

Doesn't NFS also work? I'm not an iPerson so I don't keep up. I know SMB has been problematic for the Mac stuff.

As I understand it, tym2relax is wondering if the Oppo supports (for want of a better phrase) basic NAS features.... Which it doesn't, of-course

My NFS servers do appear in the network browser sometimes, but not with 100% reliability. I've played content over NFS, but also had lockups. I don't think OPPO has ever mentioned NFS in the release notes, so this is definitely not supported at the moment.

Right, that was my understanding: he wants to remotely modify USB content while the drive is attached to the OPPO. No can do.

Thanks guys for the info. Down the road I suppose I could do this with a NAS connected directly to the Oppo.

I use a 2-bay Synology NAS myself, connected via a gigabit switch. The best file storage decision I ever made

The NAS isn't connected directly to the Oppo but instead on the home network with the Oppo. And ditto on Synology. That's what I use. You can store all your music and movies/tv there and stream to the Oppo. I have around 600gb of hi res music, another 500 gb flac, and 5-6 tb movies and tv. No more dealing with missing covers, kids fingerprints and scratched discs. All easy to find. It will revolutionize your life.

Do you set the Synology to stream to the Oppo, or, do you browse it from the Oppo as if it were a large networked attached storage device?

You browse from the Oppo just like a NAS. It is using Synology's own DLNA server but in use you browse folders just like you would an attached storage. Sound wise there's no difference whether directly attached or streamed from the NAS that I can tell. Mine has the Modwright mod and is just amazing. Can't say enough about that. I mostly stream high res up to 24/192

Does the Oppo still not support gapless playback as a UPnP/DLNA renderer?

It is my understanding that the Oppo only supports gapless play via an attached drive or via an SMB network connection. I don't believe it currently supports gapless play via a DLNA connection.

No... Support for gapless playback is still in the development stage.

A dedicated 'Oppo BDP-103/105 Cue Files/Gapless playback support' topic can be found here...
