Neuromancer indicated that there are a total of 5 known titles that won't play, including at least 1 popular movie. It stands to reason that the number will increase over time. It's not ideal, but...

Probably a lot more than the cost of a new lamp. IMHO, this is a really bad time to buy a new TV - I would wait for all the 4K, HDMI 2.0, and HDCP 2.2 stuff to settle down.

IIRC, don't subchannels take bandwidth away from the main channel with a result of lower picture quality? I see absolutely no need to have a TV on all day as background noise. If I have the TV on,...

:eek:


I would say so. I'd probably order a pair of sunglasses and some sunscreen too as switching to the new bulb will most likely be a shock. :D

I assume you mean feeding 2 AVR's via HDMI. It would theoretically be possible, but would be a PITA to deal with things like room correction, volume control, configuring which channels go out of...

Not to jump on the knocking Bose bandwagon, but given your system description, I don't see any point in spending the extra cash on the 105. Yes, you can configure the 103 so the FL and FR analog...

More analog outputs, another DAC and supporting circuitry, and built-in Atmos decoding, apparently. ;)

Just make sure any cabinet doors are open or the player is far enough back before opening the tray if using the remote to do so. :D

Does the same thing happen if you play the tracks via a SMB share or on a locally attached storage device? If so, then it's most likely an Oppo issue. I'd suggest contacting Oppo and offer to...
