post #23881 of 26600
So I am sending my 93 into service for the intermittent frame jumping issue.
Unfortunate.

I was told by a very good source that it was down to the Oppo no longer liking the current HDMI cable, I am seeing if that works.
The source experienced the same issue- and said the switching of cables fixed it.

Well it didn't work so I sent it in.
It was weird and made me paranoid, makes me think the Marvell VP got wonky...

Yeah I tried that........it is either just the soundtrack or an issue with the old firmware, either way, will just roll on....thanks for the help.

Hi,

Can someone please tell me if the Oppo-93 can indeed "zoom" up the letterbox bars on current "3D" Blu-Ray movies. It seems alot of manufacturers are locking out "zoom" function when a 3D disc is recognized.

Thanks
You will sacrifice the DTS-MA audio track. It's pretty good I must say. get a BB rental

Agreed. The full soundtrack is a must!

The 93's zoom functions work on 3D and Java-enabled discs, which is because of the 93's somewhat unusual two-processor design (and that's why others can't do it). That said, I've never used the zoom function to crop a movie, so I'm not certain your particular use case will work exactly how you'd like.

I sold my 93 last week and am scheduled to get my 103 tomorrow. Just wanted to thank everyone here who have helped me out directly and indirectly as I head over to the 103 thread. I'm amazed at how huge this thread has gotten. At some point, some threads should just become a sub-forum. wink.gif Thanks again.

I'm on the fence but thinking about selling my 93 and upgrading. I don't do a lot of fancy things with network file sharing or ISO, etc, so I think this would be a good upgrade for me. Need to see what used 93's are going for but I would expect there is still a good market. Where do you suggest to sell? Audiogon, here on AVS?

Here on AVS, Audiogon, eBay, Amazon.com, etc. Really depends on convenience as some have a little more overhead in costs like commission and fees. I loved the 93 but the 103 had features that are worth the upgrade for my environment, otherwise I would have stayed with the 93.

I should have mentioned that I do see this as a positive upgrade because I don't use those things people are holding on to the 93 for. I watch Blu-rays, listen to hi-rez discs, and stream from Netflix and other apps. I'd like the upgraded streaming apps in the 103 for sure.
post #23896 of 26600
I see members "upgrading" from the 93 to the 103, even though it's half the price.

Even on Oppo's site the 103 is shown as the replacemnt model. I would think that the 95 (@$999) would be the direct replacement. (audiophile audio aside)

Or is this just another example of reduction in consumer electronics pricing?

If the 103 ($499) is a better unit why are folks on Ebay paying almost $500 for a used 93?

I've been a Pio 51 user and am new to looking at Oppo.

Edit : BTW, the addition of Cinevia in the 103 makes it a non choice for me.
Plus •BDMV folders are no longer supported on DVD media, which kills AVCHD (I have a bunch of these)

^ I think you are confused about the pricing.

The 93, as sold on OPPO Digital's web site, was priced at $499, new, just the same as the 103 is now. The 103 is indeed the replacement model for the 93.

I suspect you've been looking at prices for modified players -- or pricing that includes a substantial amount of price gouging.

ALL newly certified Blu-ray players will have Cinavia detection, so if that's a problem for you, you'l need to buy an older player that was certified last year or earlier (like a used 93). Even then, some makers (like Sony) have chosen to put Cinavia detection into their older players anyway via firmware update.

I'll let the media file experts tackle your concern about AVCHD.

Yea for me Cinavia is enough to keep me from buying the 103. Im glad I bought the 93 when I did and if I decide to upgrade the blu-ray player in my other theater system Ill be going for a used 93 before Ill mess with a 103. I use Apple TVs, xboxs, ps3s, wiis or Rokus for streaming in various places in the house, so those types of features on any Oppo would go unused by me.

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.

Now that my player is in the shop, is it likely my problem will be resolved or are the next few months going to be unpleasant???

I would think that most likely it will be fixed.

nice to hear.
post #23902 of 26600
Hello,

I am going to tweak my projector, a Sony Vw 95, with some test patterns. I would like to know from people who have BOTH, what they outputs are.

Meaning, auto, Rgb, 4.2.2 or 4.2.4 ? Which Deep colour setting and what adjustment on the Sony for that? The Sony; has 10 gamma settings, I always wonder which is best to use, I normally use "gamma correction" osf, or Gamma 4. With Gamma 8 on cinema one, the pictures pops more, but whites are burned a bit.

Other settings, to be considered? I put everything flat in the output for the moment......

Thank you.

there's no right answer, use whatever gives the best results. Sometimes you need to look at more than test patterns though, real-world display of HD video in motion is different.

Yes I understand that, but it could be helpful if I had some idea where to start, especially the colour output. And the Sony must like one signal over another to pair with.

You'd want to research that in the appropriate thread for the Sony display.

Where they will answer " resarch the oppo 93 thread?" It is a question for that have both.

Thanks for the response and correction........I guess I did get the pricing wrong.

While it is a two-thread question, the fact is you have many output options on your Oppo and you are trying to figure out the best of them for you Sony. Therefore the best answer will come from the Sony thread dedicated to best input regardless of blu-ray or digital front end.

I just checked five different .mts files that i played from the hard drive sitting in a Thermaltake BlacX connected to the Oppo through the eSATA port and the same five files on an USB flash drive plugged into the port on the front of the Oppo. Some files played sound about two seconds into the file, went silent for a second or two and then came back with video and sound, others took up to 6 seconds to appear in a similar manner. The the time counter on the front of the Oppo is counting and is accurately representing where in the file timeline the .mts file is during this period and when the file and sound appear we are already into the clip by 2 - 6 seconds.

I have my Oppo HDMI plugged into an Onkyo NR906 which feeds the Pioneer Kuro HDMI input. I wonder if this is occurring in the Onkyo and the Oppo is putting out video from second one?

Next diagnostic step would be to connect the OPPO directly to the display, bypassing the receiver. Try both the HDMI1 & 2 outputs separately.

If this works better it indicates a handshaking delay somewhere in the chain. Even if so you can't blame the AVR alone because HDMI is a team sport.
