have you tried the rgb limited settings. I have notice that alot of panasonic tv owners prefer that setting. I was using deep color but turned it off when using the rgb settings.

^ Do you any sort of "motion smoothing" feature enabled on your TV? If so, try turning it OFF. It may be glitching on you.

No nothing of the sort.

Not always. AUTO simply sends what the next device in the HDMI chain publishes as its "preferred" input format. Some devices publish a "safe" choice for that rather than what's truly best for them, as they fear things hooked up to them will use something even worse if they can't produce what's truly "best".

So for example, it is not uncommon to see 1080p-capable displays publishing 1080i as their preferred input resolution because cable boxes that can't put out 1080p, might very well put out 480p instead.

Find the explicit settings here that truly work best, and use those. AUTO is the factory default because it is pretty much guaranteed to work, but for best viewing, use the correct, explicit settings.

the audio seems unaffected, it's video only and not repeatable.
It's only happened twice so far, Puppet Master III and the final episode of The Walking Dead (season 1). No audio distortions or anything, just seems to go over a couple of frames.

You may be experiencing minor disc read glitches -- the stutter being the player doing auto-correction. Since they are not repeatable at the same time codes it is less likely the disc is dirty or damaged, but it may be time to clean the laser lens in the player.

Since it is so rare at this point, you may just want to let it slide and see if the problem starts showing up more frequently.

If you are going to use RGB, you should really try to stick to RGB Video Level output instead of RGB PC Level.

If that's in reference to lens cleaning, ANY player can pick up a bit of dust on the lens. Even a brand new one.

If the player is in an environment where stuff is in the air, the lens can also get filmed. This would typically be an environment with tobacco smoke, cooking smoke, a fireplace, or scented candles. Find a hard surface like the glass on a picture and draw your finger across it to see if it streaks.

Anyway, it sounds like the problem is rare at the moment. If it doesn't get worse, you may simply want to ignore it. It is pretty common for dust to blow off the lens due to the discs spinning for example.

Hi guys:

 

I have lots of DVDs and BRs that i want to record onto a NAS i plan to buy soon. My dell laptop only plays DVDs so no help there. Do i need to buy a DVD/BR copier just to do the infrequent function of recording a BR?  This would be costly proposition for me. What to do?

Copier? You mean hardware? Most people use software approaches, but you will need a BR drive on a computer. The FAQ has info and links: What are the alternatives to .iso files?

BR drives are not expensive, and they make external USB models.

Thanks Bill ...which of these SW options is lossless and transfers all HD video and audio codecs with no issues ...maybe i'm asking a lot?

BDMV folders are an exact copy of the original disc.

For the -93 they are supported only on locally attached storage. On the -103 you can also used SMB network shares.

DLNA does not support BDMV folders.

There is a thread for these issues: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1336046/ripping-blu-rays-ii

My first Blu-ray player was a Panasonic DMP-BD50 - the first player from any manufacturer to be able to decode DTS HD Master Audio and send it out via LPCM and multichannel analog RCA jacks.

I got my Oppo BDP-93 to improve the sound quality - I use the analog output - and was amazed that the image quality was much better as well, despite the received wisdom that all Blu-ray players' image quality is the same. Not true. Independent testers have found that with respect to color fidelity, the Oppos are the only players to properly render the color space without distortion.

The image from the BD50 is "very nice" - the image from the BDP-93 is "natural."

I've never had any problems with respect to playback: I put a disk in and it plays (I've had my 93 since July).

I still have the BD50, as I held on to it play any disk the Oppo wouldn't. It's never happened.

The manual has recommended settings for various audio setups.

See if this helps: What are the recommended settings for the OPPO BDP-93?

Apparently the 103 is not fast enough either. A few audio dropout reports have surfaced from 103 owners in the Brave thread in the software section.

Please help if you can. As late as April of this year , I was able to stream FLAC files from my laptop through the OPPO without trouble. I noticed at the beginning that I couldn't access files from folders that didn't contain a 3MU (playlist) file, so I made a bunch of them and it worked like gangbusters. Now it only seems to recognize WMA and mp3 files and they play correctly. I'm using NERO MEDIAHOME 4 as my laptop server. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm fairly certain that Nero MediaHome 4 does NOT support FLAC. You'll need a server like oShare, Universal Media Server, etc. that do support FLAC.

Does anyone who owned an 83/83SE remember the BluTV app? Whatever happened to it. I recently took outof my rack the ISO-95 for sale and replaced it with the 83SE for now. I was amazed at the paucity of applications the 83/SE had. I tried its BluTV app as i had loved it in the past. Now, i get a "System error ...Please check your system and try again..."

 

What gives???

Their web page (http://www.dreamercorp.com/news.html) has not been updated in a couple of years, so I presume they are dead.

They have a contact form. Try it and let us know.

Well I've tried it myself without problems -- even knowing where the problems ought to show up.

Played Netflix BD of Brave today, BD-93 streaming TrueHD 7.1 into SSP-800. No Internet connection, BL Live off. No glitches.

I know you personally did not have any issues. I was just pointing out that there are reports of some 103 owners having the dropout, so apparently that player is not immune either.

Has anyone reported dropouts using LPCM yet? The problem is most people don't specify.

In the BRAVE thread even people with other brand players report that LPCM works when bitstream doesn't.

All the reports I have read seem to indicate LPCM is able to get around this probably due to the reasons Bob mentions a few pages back or so. If people using LPCM have had this issue, I have not read about it specifically, but like you mention a lot of people dont specify how they are running the audio so who knows.
post #23819 of 26644
So far all problem reports I've seen have been with Bitstream output. I presume whatever silly thing they've done in the authoring is causing the audio stream to reset, and it just takes longer at both the player and at the receiver to get a Bitstream validated and going. Thus the dropout.

It's not a new handshake, because the dropout isn't long enough duration for that.
--Bob
post #23820 of 26644
I'd assume its about buffering, and the different ways that buffering is handled when bitstreaming vs decoding.
