Many thanks. I have read posts in other forums stating the contrary, have you upgraded your 93?

My 93 has the latest FW and it does not get the watermark message on the same backup copy of an Elysium movie disc a Samsung player does.

You can get good information using the link to the unofficial FAQ that's in the first post. Almost without exception, missinformation that shows up in an OPPO thread gets corrected very quickly.

If you are new to AVS or to the OPPO 93 player, then this is your home away from home. smile.gif

I just purchased a used mint condition BDP-93 with the latest firmware. I am new to all this but want to report a couple findings to see if you guys have any words on them.

I find the remote requires more button pressing force than usual or common to other remotes. A heavy duty remote for sure.

Also my Pioneer Elite SC-75 remote will learn the commands or acts like it does but when I try it nothing happens. My Onkyo learning remotes do this fine.

Other than that I'm loving it. Thanks

Good to hear your liking the 93, it's a great player. Although the remote is well built it is annoying how far you have to press them.

I find it kind of odd when I hear people complain about the Oppo remote buttons, just because I have never had an issue with them.
I usually end up using 2 or 3 different OEM remotes at my side rather than a universal remote,
and they all seem to be about the same sensitivity to me. Perhaps it is in my nature to press harder, and of course everyone is different I guess.

Funny huh? Thanks. I have large strong hands and at my house this remote is a PITA because of its stubbornness compared to any remote I have ever used.

Perhaps its not the standard for an Oppo remote. I got t used so.............
It looks brand new. I like the build and layout.

I guess I am posting it up here to see if its the norm for it to require a firm press in comparison to most remotes. If not I'll give Oppo a shout.

If my Pioneer remote would cooperate and learn its commands it would go into a drawer.

As with S-p, I haven't found my Oppo 93's remote to require noticeably harder button presses than my other OEM remotes (Onkyo 5008, cable box, TV etc.). I wonder if there might be an issue with the remote your unit came with?

One thing I DID notice and am constantly reminded of though, is that the Oppo remote/IR sensor has a pretty narrow angle of operation, i.e. whilst most of my other equipment can be controlled with the remote pointed in their general direction, the 93 not only requires me to point the remote more accurately, it also requires that the remote be within a narrower window in front of the player (eg. my Onkyo remote works if I trigger it standing 10 feet back and 10 feet to the side. The Oppo requires that I hold the remote much closer to straight out from the player. If I try to do anything with the remote further than ~2 feet to the side of being directly in front, the Oppo won't read the remote).

I've never had a problem with our remote, but it doesn't get much use because of our Harmony remote. If you think that you have a bad remote, a replacement is $8.00 here.

These remotes have a reputation for putting out a narrow IR signal. I once helped my nephew (he has big strong hands) with his universal remote. Almost every time he pressed a button nothing happened. I put his remote on the arm of his couch and aimed it at the IR receiver. I made him use it from that location. It always worked. My conclusion was that his trigger finger was disrupting his aim. Military training does have it's applications in everyday life. wink.gif

I had a problem with the remote for my 93 about two years ago, and contacted Oppo support thinking it was defective and needed to be replaced.

Before replacing it for me, they suggested I try the following exercise to try and "loosen up" the buttons, in order to improve the contact when pushing buttons. You might try this on your 93 remote first, as it might help.

=======================================

Remove the batteries from the remote control:

1. Press and hold the POWER button on the remote control for 3 seconds. Release.
2. Press and hold the SOURCE button on the remote control for 3 seconds. Release.
3. Repeat until all the buttons on the remote control have been pressed and held, individually, for 3 seconds each.
4. Replace the batteries with new ones (note: we do not recommend using Lithium batteries with the OPPO Remote).
5. Rotate the batteries in their compartment to ensure proper contact with the metal leads.
6. Press the OPEN button on the front panel of the player so the tray ejects.
7. Aim the remote control at the front panel of the player and press and hold the ENTER button on the remote for 5 seconds.
8. The front panel should possibly show CODE 1, CODE 2, or CODE 3. If the remote control code of the player and the remote are identical, then the player will NOT show any CODE reading on the front panel of the player.

If the remote control still does not work, then the remote will need to be replaced. In this case, please respond with your shipping information so we can send out a new remote control.

======================================

DSperber's post is very interesting too. By the way, I lied. My nephew doesn't have "big string hands", but they are big and strong. He is a High Voltage contractor who does all his own cable splicing. I'll have to apologize to him the next time he buys us dinner. cool.gif
post #26355 of 26600
Heh! Well, if DSperber is for real, or has the time to joke around like that, the roads were iced here so I had the time. Eh? No change.

On the flip side, I have not to worry about it anymore. My Pioneer SC-75's learning remote seemed stubborn to learn and execute commands for my Oppo.
When the learning remote is in learning mode the red LED will blink. When the command is sent to the AVR's learning remote the blinking LED will confirm it learned with an off state pause then continue.

So I hunkered down again and found the sequence as per instructed by Pioneer works as described on my other components but for the Oppo-93 the last step of pressing the RCU Setup button has to be done twice.
Call me crazy but I tried it again on the other component's remotes and they only require one final RCU press.
I kind of accidentally discovered this after pressing the RCU once when finished I waited before trying it out to look out my window at something. When I looked back it was blinking again. I pressed it a 2nd time and it worked. I then went through the confirmation steps of trying it both ways for the Oppo commands to make sure I was not mistaken.

The Oppo remote is in the drawer.


Thanks

Thanks for the tip! I never knew about this button. I too love my Pandora app on the Oppo. I had to stop in between Super Bowl plays to test it out. smile.gif

Is there a known bug in playing 24.99fps mkv?

I have a few videos at this framerate and the Oppo 93 insists that the video is 24.000fps. Consequently on playback there is a regular jump in the video roughly every second where I'm guessing a frame is dropped from the 25fps material to support the 24fps output rate.

I have confirmed that the video is indeed 24.992fps in stream and header, but nothing I do will get the Oppo to recognise it correctly (switching from the default Multi to PAL makes no difference). It is like the Oppo is ignoring all but the integer value for framerates above 24fps. I have no problem with 25fps material.

I have played the same file in a NeoTV and it's perfect, so it seems like a bug with the Oppo.

No doubt this was fixed in the post ISO firmware, but that is not going to help me, unfortunately.

Hi

I have converted all my CDs to Flac and I am storing them on my Win 8.1 PC. I have installed FooBar inc UPnP server plug in (vn 0.99.48). I then select, on the Oppo93, FooBar and Playback Stream Capture but cannot hear anything. Have I screwed up a setting on my Oppo or Foobar? PC is connected to Oppo via Ethernet.

Oppo can see music files on my PC (under my network, Foobar/artist/etc) and play them fine if I go through the cumbersome files structure. If I can get PSC working I can then use Bubble app on my Android phone to control the music. But first step first.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

BC

I'd suggest checking in the Oppo DLNA / UPnP thread. The page I linked to has some discussion of this with some people reporting success. Post 525 from the developer of the plugin says to use version 0.99.22 of the Playback Stream Capture plugin. If you still can't get it working, you'll most likely get better help in that thread than in this one.

the "Pop Up Menu Glitch" also affects all recent WB titles when using HDMI one…
post #26362 of 26600
Thread Starter 
What Pop Up Menu Glitch? If you are talking about the time bar that appears when there is a chapter transition, then try disabling Secondary Audio and setting HDMI Audio to a discrete output such as Bit Stream and LPCM and not AUTO under Audio Format Setup.

Try also starting the film and then do not interrupt disc playback (ex. skip studio logos) and see if the same issues occur. There was a previous observation with Prometheus where the bar would appear if you interrupted disc playback, but would not appear if you just let the film play naturally.
post #26363 of 26600
No. On recent WB discs and Masters of Cinema discs, if you bring up the "pop-up menu" for some reason and turn it off again- the picture (even on Source Direct) will shift a few pixels to the right.
You have to go to the top/main menu and then re-enter the movie to undo that.

This does not affect HDMI 2

Is this issue related to the Qudeo's framer drops in 1080p mode, I don't know- but it's a much easier to reproduce problem.
post #26364 of 26600

This has been a known issue since last Spring. It only affects specific forms of the BD authoring where HDMV instead of BD-JAVA is used. And it is on the decoder side, so you should see the same issue with HDMI 2 as you do with HDMI 1.

Regardless, OPPO is aware of it.

Is OPPO ever going to fix the firmware glitch causing 4x3 material to be squashed? It's been out since October, and I thought this would have been an easy/quick fix.
post #26368 of 26600

Ask OPPO for their test firmware which address this issue.

I'm still running the last ISO-capable firmware, and I'm having that problem in which attempting to play the newer 1080p trailers from Apple's site (MOV container) results in the error The player does not support playback of this file. Has anyone checked whether more recent firmware is able to play these? I can PM a link to an example file or wget command line to retrieve one directly.

What does MediaInfo show for the audio and video codecs inside the container?
