Also note that an additional step to help clear out gremlins in the machine is to unplug it from the A/C for a minute or so. This is a good step to take anytime you do a factory reset. Do it when the machine is powered off and be sure there are no discs in the player.

Is there any truth to this?

I would think the HDMI audio would be of a higher quality...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While that may generally be true, it's not universally true. My pre-HDMI Yamaha RX-V457 does apply its bass management, EQ, and distance delay settings to its 5.1 analog input. The only things that it does not apply to that input are its "soundfield" processing routines - which I don't like anyway.

Anyone having problems playing the latest 3D movies on this player, latest firmware? Immortals and Hugo both break up, screen flashes etc. Avatar 3D plays just fine as doi older 3D movies.

I'm not on the latest FW, but Hugo 3D played fine for me.

Check the FAQ that's linked in the first post of this thread. Look for a topic on trouble playing BD trouble makers. Do you have the latest firmware? I think the fix for Hugo came before the latest firmware was available. Maybe the fix was in the December firmware.

I'm running the September firmware and had no trouble with a Netflix 2D Hugo rental burned to hard disk as a movie only .ISO file.

Oh darn it, the 3-way HDMI adapter I connected my players with must be to blame then...a thousand curses...back to the drawing board.

Most of the video is shot from the audience perspective. A couple of times during this concert movie it is shot from behind the band.

At the above mentioned time stamp we're behind one of the guitarists and beyond him is the crowd (lower portion of the screen) and the sky. There is a band say two inches deep across the top of the screen - video seems garbled or distorted.

Anybody able to check this? I've noticed it in a couple of other spots too; always the same scenario.

Tried this on the BD and TV in the bedroom and it's not an issue.

OK tried this at a range of different settings....

Multi/PAL/NTSC...no difference; and also different resolutions

1080p; 1080i, 720p AUTO and again no difference.

Netflix
Netflix lately (2 months?) has had an audio delay of about 3 seconds. I have watched the same movie (Bride Flight) months ago and was OK. I watch it again today and the audio is 3 seconds behind the video as well as all other foriegn films I have watched lately. I use AppleTV2 with latest updates. I have tried many settings but can't find the issue in my A100 or Apple TV2. Is there a thread somewhere that explains this phenomenon?

Wrong thread as I have the Oppoo 93 and Denon A100

My new BD-93 displays the YouTube logo and hangs when I select that application. Is that application not implemented yet?
post #20292 of 26648
I have had the same issue for the past five days. Oppo has stated there was a recent update by Google which is the cause of the problem. Oppo is working on a firmware update.

The player is not authorized to load YouTube LeanBack due to changes in the application protocol which occurred on April 9th. You will need to wait for a new firmware upgrade to fix this issue.

I appreciate your help. It's good to have this forum available to newcomers like me.

Hi guys I might be buying this player in a couple weeks. I have a few questions and there are about a billion pages to read through. So if you guys would be so kind here goes...

Can you get 5.1 with Netflix? I would like to get rid of my PS3 and selling it would help with the cost of this monster but that is a feature I enjoy even though Netflix doens't have much 5.1 material.

Does the player convert DVD frame rates to 24fps?

Whats the success rate with new discs? My PS3 has never turned down anything except 2 discs.

One of oppos advantages is supposed to be it's DVD upconversion, true? I have heard the 83 is better at it, true?

How do MKV files play?

Thanks guys.

No it does not. however I have a receiver that bitstreams it and I do own both the oppo 93 and the ps3. I hardly ever use the ps3 for netflix.

no it does not. the oppo 83 can do that.

post #20297 of 26648
Thank you so much. Right now I might be leaning towards the 83 simply because it's cheaper and it can convert the DVD frame rates. Looks like I won't be getting rid of the PS3. which converts DVDs better, 83 or 93? Thanks.

OPPO 93 needs grounding

see

Proper grounding improves sonic and video performance.

Unfortunately US version of OPPO93 dosen't have while EU version has.

see my blog for easy and simple DIY for grounding .

Actually, adding grounds can cause ground loops...And that annoying hum can sure ruin "sonic" performance!

I wouldn't add additional grounding to the 93, don't fix what's not broken.....

I have an Oppo 83 now as backup for my Oppo 93.

I tried setting the Oppo 93 remote to a different code and followed the instructions to sync the player and remote, but nothing happened: it still only responds to the default code 1.

I changed the Oppo 83 remote to code 3 and sync'd it to the Oppo 83 and it worked as it should.

Do I have a dud 93 remote or 93 unit, or could I be doing something wrong? I think I might have had something plugged into the Oppo 93 USB port whilst making the first change.

The remaining problem is telling the Oppo remotes apart.

You had the tray ejected when doing the sync? That's required.

If still no good, what if you manually change the code set in SETUP, then set the switch in the remote?

Thanks Dr. Lee. Will the grounding kit come with my linear power supply kit? I bought a used 93 for great price.

Also with 3 prong power cable, the cable can be upgraded from tiny 2 prong one.

Hi everybody !!

so here my things !

1) i have an oppo for a year now and i have no problems, i use it with the .dk chip hooked to an yamaha rx-v867 and (projo) epson 8350 and toshiba 47zv650U

i bought the oppo, yamaha and epson the same month.

2) i picked the oppo because i needed to read zone 2 dvd , and maybe blu-ray,
i had already a wd tv live plus for netflix and play our video ( from camera) from my server.

i still use the oppo only for dvd and blu-ray and i was thinking that maybe because of the extra third parties , it would be less expensive to do an oppo without this extra.

But where are going to no physical suport way so thats a no, but in the same time the oppo is not a mass market player sor they are not uptodate .( see netflix app)

So maybe , they can put the thirds parties in a device separate ( or make a deal with roku or WD or etc...) that plugs into the oppo so that way you have oppo firmware for dvd and BR independant.

Pascal,
There is another thread here where folks are discussing their wish list for a "next OPPO player":

You might want to add your suggestions to that thread.

This may have been answered in another part of this thread, but I'm going to ask it here.

I've got this player on order and it should arrive this Friday. Would running the audio from the Oppo via HDMI to my Onkyo 705, and running the video from the Oppo via HDMI to my 50G20 Panny Plasma, give me any marked improvement over just running the Oppo direct into the 705 via HDMI, and out to the Plasma?
post #20308 of 26648
^ Typically, no. If your model of Onkyo has some sort of bug in its video path, or if you have a 3D display and your Onkyo does not pass 3D video, then yes.
--Bob
post #20309 of 26648
Well, the G20 isn't 3D capable, I'm not into 3D, so I wouldn't be utilizing that part of the Oppo. However, I've read in other forums that someone had done this, run one HDMI cable to the receiver for audio while running one HDMI cable to the TV for video, and stated that they swear they had a better audio reproduction. Now, they also stated they couldn't back that up with any kind of data driven qualifiers, so they did say it could have been a placebo effect. I'm just trying to maximize the potential of the Oppo within my own personal set-up. Considering I do not do 3D, would you think I should just run HDMI direct to the Onkyo and then out to the Plasma as I have been already? My sound reproduction is great with it that way, I'm just wondering if this is an option that I could use since the Oppo has two HDMI outs.
post #20310 of 26648
^ Again, barring bugs in the Onkyo, there's no point in running two cables.

The 2nd cable would ALSO carry video to the Onkyo for example. (HDMI Audio is not a separate signal. It is Always embedded in an HDMI video signal.)
