post #25441 of 26586
With 25k posts, I can't seem to find an answer to my problem so I'll post it anyway.

I just got an Epson 3D projector. It works in 3D with my PS3 but not my Oppo BDP-93. I keep getting the "this disc doesn't work with this hardware" error. Tron Legacy, Captain America, etc. Nothing works. They all work in the PS3. Any ideas as to why this happens? I have updated firmware and have tried two different cables. Thanks.

The de-embedder will determine what resolution you get from HDMI to digital coaxial/optical. Ideally, the de-emebbder should support 24-bit/192KHz stereo PCM, but this is something that you would need to confirm with the hardware manufacturer.

The player will easily mix multi-channel to stereo at the native bit rate and sampling rate of the source. There will be no loss of resolution from the player's side unless the downstream HDMI device tells the player that the bit rate or sampling rate exceeds its capabilities. In this case, the player would downsample as necessary.

When switch on the whole system, ensure the sequence as follows
1. switch ON Epson projector keeping the oppo off.
2. Ensure that Epson is in 3D mode.
3. Now switch on the Oppo. Better to wait for a minute or two before switching on the Oppo.

It might recognise the disc now. I can't guarantee it will work. But it definitely works on my JVC Projector. If the oppo is ON before the JVC I get the same error messages.

Give OPPO Tech Support a call; they may have history with this projector.

Some projectors don't properly publish they will accept 3D, and the 3D Mode FORCED setting is useful to get 3D into them.

Thanks on the 3D forced setting. I forgot to mention that the 3D settings in the Video Setup are grayed out.

Eject the disc and the settings will be available again.

post #25449 of 26586
I figured it out.

Having a disc in the tray is what grayed out the menus.

Since I was upgrading from component cables, the default output was Analog. That's where the problem was. Switched it to HDMI and all is good. Thanks!

I'm looking for the latest EU-firmware with ISO support. I'm not sure but I think it should be the version BDP9xEU-61-1219 - but as far as I know this firmware should have problems with Universal discs. Maybe someone can provide me the version before BDP9xEU-57-0917?

Thanks!

I think if you go to the first page of this thread you will find a link to it there smile.gif Whoops! just realised it was the EU firmware you want redface.gif don't know if there is a link for that I'm EU firmware as well.

PM me and clarify what you are looking for I have several past versions, I tend to keep them on disc, what was wrong with BDP9xEU-57-0917 although it is a fairly early one and earlier versions may not have some of the other features some people regard as essential

Hi Rick.

Yes, it's better to use the firmware version BDP9xEU-57-0917.
Please check your PM.

I'm hoping someone can help me cause I can't seem to find any answers to my problem anywhere else...

It only occurred to me last night that the firmware update had ruined my region mod. I downloaded the firmware update for the mod and the first couple of times I tried, the Top Menu - Setup - Red - 9 code did turn on the player but it wouldn't access my pen drive. I tried reformatting the pen drive and tried the code again but now, the code never activates the Oppo. Nothing happens. In fact, none of the remote codes I've read about seem to work anymore either, other than the 0770 code in the setup menu which initially showed my player was in Region B with region 0 DVD playback but when I clicked OK it reverted back to Region A and DVD Region 1. The player does power up with the power button on the machine and the remote but the machine acts as if the mod chip doesn't exist anymore.

I have no idea what I could have done to have caused this but I also have no idea how to fix it so... if anyone has any suggestions I'd be extremely grateful. I tried emailing bluraychip.dk but they haven't got back to me.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

^ You will probably need to get help on installing the firmware update for the region free mod from the mod vendor.

Their firmware installation may require you to partition and format the USB thumb drive in a particular way, or go through some other gyration such as disconnecting other stuff. I don't use their mod, so I can't give you specific advice, but TYPICALLY such installers will want the USB stick to be "partitioned" in the MBR (Master Boor Record) style into just one partition and then that partition gets "formatted" typical as FAT. Their installer will likely be quite specific as to the name of the firmware file you put on the stick and whether you have to Unzip it or not from what you downloaded from their site.

Our OPPO 93 is still on the September 2011 firmware, and I may have run into the first Blu-ray release that has a problem with our old firmware release. I've tried two Netflix copies of HBO's Banshee Season 1, Disc 1. Both discs played fine until it was time to select "play all" or "play the first episode". Once the choice was made, the screen went dark and there was no audio.

I'll be doing some other testing tomorrow, but if anyone has experience with this release, I would appreciate some feed back.

You need to upgrade to the Beta Firmware to watch Banshee.

Nope. I'll keep me magic 93 at September 2011, and buy a new cheap Blu-ray player that I'll update. I'm surprised that I got this far without trouble. I've been playing all the new stuff from a DVDFab copy, but with Banshee the copy behaved the same as the original disk. Thanks for the information. smile.gif

The Sony BDP-S1100 looks like a candidate at $78.

I haven't yet experienced that first Blu-ray that won't play with the old firmware. Usually DVDFab will "fix" any issues. That Sony looks like a good alternative.

I still have my original PS3 (almost 7 yrs. old) as a backup that rarely gets powered on. Don't know how much longer it will hold on, but it's nice knowing there are sub $100 players out there for that eventuality. Some day I may pick up a new Oppo, maybe the next generation, as a supplement to my 93.

When my secondary player in the bedroom died I picked up a Sony BDP-S5100 to replace it. I would have liked to get another Oppo (either a 93 or a 103) but given that I don't have anything special for sound in the bedroom I couldn't justify the extra expense. I'm quite happy with the Sony (I hope it will last longer than the Panasonic it replaced, Pana lifetimes have gotten awful...)

I've decided the 103 doesn't have enough new features to justify the expense of a second player that would reside in the same cabinet as my 93, and prices for a used 93 that could be updated aren't exactly cheap either.

I'll wait to see what features the (113?) brings, and hopefully the PS3 will hold on that long. If not, a $75 Sony should work in the interim as a backup.

I'm with you on this. Can we say Oppo 4K player biggrin.gif plus I've heard of a lot of glitches on the 103. I'm not sure if there is anything to be gained as far as picture/sound quality. I know the 103 has a better network speeds.

In my short experience with the 103 (I had HDMI compatibility problems) I did not notice any difference in PQ but I thought the audio quality was very marginally better. I also personally felt the load times were not noticably faster for the Java heavy discs. The HDMI problem with my main TV put the kybosh on the 103 for me, although it worked OK with a second TV, both TV's are fine with the 93. So I suspect it may have been the new QDEO processor or one of the many glitches that may have been cured in the latest firmware for the 103, but it went back before that release

For those holding their firmware version in 2011, and who haven't had problems with recent Blu-ray releases, my first problem disk was solved by getting a backup Sony BDP-S1100 for $80 at BB. That was my original plan, and it seems to have worked. smile.gif

Thanks for clarifying this for me. It is very un Oppo like to release a buggy product, I hope they straighten it out soon. Since I don't feel like paying over a grand for the 105, I'll wait and see what Oppo does next. If it's a 4K disc player I'll be especially interested.

using a power strip auto shutdown...will it harm my player?

hello all, new to the forums.

i've had a BDP-93 since it came out. i usually watch movies before bed. my HDTV has a sleep timer, so i set it to shut down after an hour or so. the oppo, as near as i can tell, does not have a sleep timer. so the TV shuts off, the oppo stays on all night, and i have to turn it off in the morning. this does not seem great for the life of my player.

i'm considering an auto-switch power strip.

it seems that this power strip "pulls the plug" on things plugged into the strip that are contingent on the 'control device.' so if my HDTV shuts down, anything plugged into those plugs would be shut off.

the question is, would this be harmful to my player? it would be just like pulling the plug from the wall.

It should not harm the player, but I always recommend putting the player into Standby before removing the power from the player to ensure that all of your settings are saved properly and the disc has been spun down correctly.
