If you are using hdmi from the 103to the 8801, its the same as the in that regard.
As I take it you don't own a 103 or 105, its better to let those that do chime in on what works and what's unresolved to offset any unnecessary confusion
The problems they're reporting on the Oppo 103 owner's thread are varied, but many - mostly lip sync issues when using both HDMI outputs, or HDMI handshake problems that require re-launching or restarting the player.
The rest of the problems reported deal with non - Blu-ray disc playback problems, like with Netflix, Amazon streaming, lockups with different apps, HDMI issues when using the Oppo's HDMI INPUTS, problems playing back WAV or FLAC files from a hard drive, choppy 3d output using oshore networking, video 'judder', and so on.
But mostly various lip sync and HDMI handshake issues...
Yes, the '103 and '105 share the "same guts", but I wasn't looking at the '105 owner's thread (because I am considering the '103).
Perhaps some of the same issues with the '105 on their thread? Don't know.
And no, I don't own a '103 (yet), but that's the unit I've been researching, so that's why I've been studying that owner's thread on AVS, (and other sources).
I'm not trying to stir up trouble (or cause confusion), but I have noticed that the new '103 has some issues when (mostly) being used to do things other than straight Blu-ray disc playback.
I thought some here might be interested in that too(?).
But knowing Oppo's reputation, they're a great company with a great product and I'm confident that they'll eventually get things straightened out with some future comprehensive firmware upgrade, but each upgrade launched so far seems to cause a new problem, while solving an old one!
