Official OPPO BDP-93 Owner's Thread - Page 790

post #23671 of 26644
Thread Starter 
I get an AACS error when trying to copy this film using 1.7.7, so I can't easily create a MKV to compare results.

I am using my BDP93 as a cd player. Hooked up to an Outlaw RR2150 receiver. This works very well.
I would like to play music from my laptop (using the Itunes interface) through the Oppo,
I would like to do this wirelessly using a 3rd generation Apple TV box.
Is this even possible or am I dreaming?

Anyway my question was does the Oppo BDP-93 supports 3d mkv files? either through network or locally?
thanks.

why would you use a "Player" device to stream your wireless music? wouldn't you just use your receiver/amp?

One may use whatever works. I don't believe the RR2150 is capable of receiving any such stream, certainly my pure analog Carver C-1 circa 1970's isn't. The Oppo is a DLNA client as well as having some Internet apps. With a DLNA server (I use minidlna on my Linux box) I can stream all of my audio, video, and photos to the Oppo (currently via wireless). My new Panny GT50 is also a DLNA client but the Oppo's upscaling blows it away and is clearly the better device for such purposes.

The RR2150 has a usb in function. I can plug my laptop directly into the receiver & play the laptop music.
However darkphader is correct, It is not capable of receiving a wireless stream.
I thought that the apple tv box might plug directly into the RR2150 usb port, But no such luck.
I was also hoping to utilize the superior dac in the Oppo.
post #23677 of 26644
the statement is... WHY.
why would you stream to this device. I guess an answer I could accept is DAC but that would be it really.

Non Sequitur - based on the previous replies and the fact that "why" is generally a question and not a statement.

Just trying to stream music to my stereo system somehow. All I have is the Outlaw & Oppo & an Apple TV box. I am open to any suggestions.

Airplay will let you stream to the ATV. Unfortunately, the ATV has an Optical Out, but the Outlaw does not have a optical in. I see two choices if you want to stay with an Apple solution:

1. But a cheap DAC that can accept the optical out of the ATV. Plug the analog outs from the DAC to the Outlaw.

2. Buy an Apple Airport Express, which has both analog and optical out, and connect that to the Outlaw.

iTunes can stream to either. Neither are particularly elegant, but you are hamstrung by the lack of optical in on the Outlaw.

Or, look into DNLA servers and stream right to the Oppo.

Thanks Brian
Looks like an airport express will do the trick.
Appreciate your input

Mike,

Am I correct that there is a TV in the system somewhere, and that you have the ATV connected to the TV via HDMI?

if so, can you get an analog output from the TV back to the Outlaw?

That would also work, although you would probably need to turn on the TV in order for the audio to flow back to the Outlaw.

They are awesome too! I have a bunch of them all over the house and stream from iPads, iPhones, Macs and PCs (with AirFoil software) to one or any number of them throughout the house. Def an under rated accessory!

Yes you are correct. I will see if that is a possibilty. However the airport express is looking pretty good right now.

It should work, but since I have can't duplicate your errors, I am not able to confirm how MakeMKV is converting frame packed 3D into MKV 3D. As long as the resulting file was side-by-side or top-bottom 3D, then the player should have produced an image on your television which you then convert to 3D output using your television's 3D Mode settings.

I do note that some newer flat panels have done away with analog outs, so if so, the TV option will not work.

Just a reminder - this thread is for BDP-93 technical discussion. The ATV / airport discussion would be more appropriate in another thread in the proper forum for it.
post #23688 of 26644
Has there been any solution offered for the audio truncation issues over HDMI? I have noticed it with a number of sources, but I play a lot of SACD bit-streamed over HDMI 2 to AVR, and it is very pronounced. Thanks.

There is always an initial HDMI handshake that occurs when there is a new negotiation with the player and the receiver. Once the audio begins, though, it should remain locked.

Sorry about that. This started off as a discussion about streaming the music through the BDP-93 via the ATV. Apparently this can not be done & the discussion veered off to the AE solution.

For Forum Members who currently own an OPPO, you may want to check the Trade-In Value of your older OPPO re the 103.
Secondly, good time of the year for the wife wondering what to get you for Christmas! (Or Black Friday) Mine went for paying the Trade-In difference as my early Christmas Present.
I'm hoping the 103 will be missing the Handshake problem I have with the 93, between it and my iScan Duo.

Just got the Disney WOW calibration blu-ray and am having problems with my Oppo 93 reading the discs......?? The WOW program will play in my Panasonic BD-85 with no problems. I have the latest firmware update on the Oppo, so I can't figure out the issue.......?? Anybody else experience this??

How are the discs not loading? Are you getting some kind of error message?

No error message, will play some parts of the WOW disc, but not others.....?? The Panasonic will play and read the entire disc. I really wanted to use the Oppo due to the much better video processing. It seems that the Oppo reads some of the disc very slowly, and others not at all...?? I'm going to email the great people at Oppo to see if it is an issue with their software.

My 93 plays both the SD-DVD and Blu-ray versions of the Disney WOW discs without any such problem.

Either you have a defective disc (not likely since the other player is playing it, but it does happen and may not even be visible by eye) or it is possible the lens in your 93 needs cleaning. Have you been having recent problems with any other discs in the 93? If not, try exchanging the disc even though it is playing in the other player.

Never a problem with any Blu ray or standard DVD on the Oppo. I had the nagging feeling that it might be defective, but the fact that it played in the Panasonic had me wondering.....?? I think I may return it and try it again. I did email Oppo service, but have not heard back from them.
Thanks for your input......

Try cleaning the disc before you return it. The disc may have an oil film or such left on it from manufacturing.

By the way, OPPO Tech Support usually responds to emails quite quickly -- certainly within a day, and usually much faster. Check your SPAM filter and Junk folder to make sure the reply from OPPO isn't getting blocked.

Man.. I've had my Oppo 93 for a couple months and LOVE IT. The quality is excellent for sound and picture. I have a pretty big DVD collection, and I have to say they look better than ever!! Does Bluray make the picture of regualr DVD's look better? Does the Oppo do it better than most Bluray players?

Also, besides excellent picture and sound, is the Oppo better or capable of doing anything else I need to me made aware of? (other than Pandora, and Voodoo, and other apps it comes with.. between my Apple TV, Panny Plasma, and AVR, those things are pretty pointless.. Although I do love the Pandora the best.

Anyone by chance used this external hard drive bay with the BDP-93 via eSATA and had good luck with it? Says device needs to support SATA port replication and I wasnt sure if the 93 did.
