Just curious i seen a post stating speaker and bass management is effected passing lpcm over hdmi is this true??

No. Speaker settings apply only to the analog audio outputs.

There is no lipsync issues when I run the player straight to my 52HX909. But when I run it through my Integra 40.1 there is lipsync issues. Any input would be appreciated.

Ensure that your receiver is set to passthrough (no video scaling or processing). Ensure that the receiver has been set up properly for speaker distances, sizes, etc. If these are wrong, it can add processing delays.

If you set the receiver to Direct or Pure Direct, do you have the same amount, more, or less sync errors?

I got this e-mail from oppo. this is an answer for all oppo owners: 80/83

Jacob


The BDP_83 is no longer being manufactured, but that does not mean that the player will no longer receive firmware upgrades. We are not discontinuing the software support of any of our Blu-ray players.

Best Regards,

Customer Service

Thanks Jacob. I wouldn't expect anything less from Oppo.

Cant wait to see there new players
post #3340 of 3937
Maybe the new Oppos will be on the market longer than the 8 months for the -80. lol

I will probably keep my -83, -83SE and sell my -80 and get the new -93, though I shall wait till after Christmas.
post #3341 of 3937
What 93? Is there such a thing?

I have the player set to bitstream out the audio and have the video set so the aspect ratio is not modified (stretched) nor is any upgrade of video done.
I have the receiver set to passthrough. Engaging lipsync on the receiver causes the lipsync to get worse. Changing the receiver to direct does not affect the lipsync issue. The speaker settings are all properly setup. I am going to try and test to see if it is a HDMI pass through issue by setting the video straight to the TV and then running the audio optical out of the player to the receiver and see if the lipsync persists.

Well I am having an annoying problem with the oppo. I have hdmi avr and i dont like to run video through it. So i attached a splitter to run hdmi audio to my avr and video to my denon 602ci processor. Should be simple right?

Well no it seems the oppo for whatever reason wont send multichannel audio as soon as my projector is connected. My projector does not even have speakers.

My old sony never had this issue.

Im guessing the oppo is overriding my settings and getting some sort of false edid that my projector can only handle 2 channel. Even though it does not even have speakers.

Either way as soon as i unplug my projector from the chain i get mulitchannel lpcm, as soon as i plug the projector back in, i only get 2 channel.

What gives?

The EDID and HDCP chain will be handshook on both devices at the same time, with the lowest common denominator choosing which audio and video quality should be sent over HDMI.

You will likely have to run audio and video through your receiver, or use multi-channel analog to your receiver for audio so you can continue to use HDMI for video direct to your projector.

HDCP is a protection scheme designed specifically to prevent you from doing this. You can't just split HDMI. You'll need to send the HDMI to a receiver which will produce the audio and repeat the video for your projector. Failing your receiver being able to do that, you'll have to hook the HDMI to the projector and SPDIF/TOSLINK to your receiver with downgraded audio.
post #3351 of 3937
So is the problem you cant split hdmi until after it reaches an hdcp source like a receiver, video processor ect.. My denon 602ci splits video and audio out.


I also split video to my projector and plasma for many years coming off a simple monoprice switch.

If thats not the issue, then im pretty sure its entirely edid and nothing to do with hdcp.

For instance I ran my 360 or ps3 (blue ray) to a simple monoprice hdmi switch and then split it to a plasma and projector.

If it was hdcp wouldnt i get no video or audio, it would not pass the content? I still get 2channel audio and video yet.

So im thinking its entirely edid related, and gefen hdmi plus should correct it. I will test my theory when i get home.
post #3352 of 3937
Just tested my ps3 watching no country for old men, works fine, i get multichannel lossless pcm so this is entirely edid related nothing to do with hdcp.

Soundlvr i have 2 hdmi splitters in my chain, so that goes to show you CAN just split hdmi.


The problem is now, a company as intelligent and feature rich as oppo, it boggles my mind the player does not let you specify how many channels your receiver can play while my ps3 can.

I dont even see an option for that over hdmi. Im sure oppo is aware of all the edid issues with hdmi they are a very intelligent company yet i have to rely on edid to get the proper audio.

Now i need a 110 dollar gefen edid solution.

Have you tried removing the projector from the chain?

Engage a film which is multi-channel. Confirm that you are only getting stereo audio.

Disconnect the projector from the splitter.

Disconnect the HDMI cable from the back of the player then reconnect it. This will force a new handshake.

Is your audio now Stereo or Multi-Channel?

Does your receiver support Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD Master? If yes, change HDMI to Bit Stream (not Auto) and see if this changes the performance.
post #3354 of 3937
Well odd it worked today.

I have no idea why, i wonder if the oppo was reading the edid of my display the other night, and today the edid of my receiver?

I know from using my pc sometimes it reads edid of my receiver, sometimes it lists my denon video processor.

I dont know how it chooses, but the receiver is offloaded first so it should get that edid first.

Either way its working. But then a person in the video processor mentioned running everything through the denon video processor, then to the receiver, then to my display.

This works well.

Try changing the sequence you turn on your equipment. Turn on the projector, wait for it to completely boot up, then turn on the receiver then the player and see if this does not improve your handshakes.

Hey guys,
I am having a prob with my player which is only a few months old.

When playing burnt mkv files through dual or single layer dvd discs, throughout the movie there is this repeating clicking/reading/scratching kinda sound coming from the player.. loud enough to hear from a couple of metres away during quieter scenes.

This does NOT happen when watching any blu-ray discs at all... the blu-ray discs are very quiet, why are the DVDs not quiet? :/

I have tried using a couple of different types of DVD media, tried burning on slow speeds, and what not..

Any help appreciated.
post #3357 of 3937
Finally made up my mind to buy a BDP-80, but now I see it's discontinued. What to get in its place? Any advice?

I like the good value for money of Oppo products - the bargain segment of the high-end market.

I need SACD as well as BD. It doesn't have to handle DVD particularly well as I already have an Oppo DV-980H.

Other equipment:
Denon AVR-1908 receiver
Sanyo PLV-Z4 projector

Thanks in advance for your help,
Qasimkhan

If you have a DV-980H then you do not need a player which does SACD. Just keep the DV-980H connected for CD, DVD-Audio and SACD, then use the new Blu-ray player exclusively for Blu-ray.
post #3359 of 3937
The Oppo BDP-80 is back on the Oppo website and the 83 is still there too. It appears neither has been discontinued see www oppodigital com. What's going on with them?
post #3360 of 3937
Last batch, maybe??
