There is no link yet on the Oppo 93 webpage. Just wondering if the beta testers have access to a pdf manual, or is the only manual available the printed copy you receive with your 93?

I've always liked the ability to study the manual before I receive the player. Makes setup quicker and more informed.

Thanks,
Tom
No, the manual is not online yet.

Is there any way to know at what quality Netflix is playing ? Any bar gauge ?
post #64 of 26585
Has anyone tried the DLNA features of the 93 regarding HD audio and full bit-rate mkv (20-40GB) files? The 83 would not bitstream any HD audio (TrueHD or DTS_MA) over DLNA.

Does the 93 recognise the Cinavia watermark that's now showing up on new Blu-Rays?

I prefer to back up my discs into MKVs when I first get them, knowing that they'll get a good amount of play. This protects the discs from family and neihbors.

If the 93 recognises this new protection, it will pretty much kill my ability to keep the originals safe.

Cool !
If anyone can post some more pics of the 93 (in action), they are most welcome ! Here in Europe we still have to wait some time...

All OPPO BDP-93 owners that have the BETA firmware (pre-release firmware) installed don’t forget to email OPPO digital regarding any bugs you find or features you would like added in future firmware releases.

For example the discontinued OPPO BDP-83 has a 24fps DVD feature in the menu that the OPPO BDP-93 lacks. Perhaps if OPPO Digital Inc gets enough emails they may decide to add the 24fps DVD feature to the OPPO BDP-93 with a future firmware update.

The following is a quote from OPPO Digital

When you receive your BDP-93, please send any feedback and comments directly to BDP-93@oppodigital.com - your input can help shape the BDP-93's firmware further.”
HDTV1080P24,

Not sure if you realize it and hate to be a nitpicker, but please change your post TEXT COLOR to the standard AVS yellow! Black text on a dark background seems tough to read!... Unless of course you choose either the AVSForum.com Default or AVS Mobile setting!

Will the 93 allow me to get rid of my scaler by having the ability to zoom 2:35 to 1:85 to fit my plasma screen? Also will it play 3D better than the other players currently out? I'm trying to justify buying this, so any help would be appreciated.
post #69 of 26585
Just spoke with my supplier, he thinks that the 3D might not work with the Sony VPL-VW90ES that I will be getting with this, because of compatibility issues. Anyone tried the 3D on Sony?

I picked up my BDP-93 on 11/19/10. So far, I have only one issue with the firmware.

A couple of times, I have closed the empty drawer and the display remained at CLOSE, not getting as far as LOADING.

It doesn't always happen and I'm not sure how to reliably reproduce it.

Has anyone else seen this?

None. Netflix determines what type displays and such are loaded into the player. Oppo has no control over it.

Could be an issue with the loader, contact Oppo if it persists. Of course it might be a result of the type of disc you are putting into it. But you should get either a "loading" message or a "no disc" message.

Can you please post some pictures of the front plate of the player in action? With a disc? Also, the set-up menu? Thanks much!

Like the previous OPPO BR players, it has both vertical stretch and full screen zoom modes that do what you want. However, none of the zoom modes currently work with Blu-ray discs that have java. We hope this will be added in future firmware, but there is no promise that it will be.

the setup menu is more or less the same as the oppo 83.
I dont have a good camera for pictures.

Is the remote identical to the 83? Can I use the 83 to program my Harmony ? Thanks.

New to the Oppo. Currently have a Harmony One remote controlling my system. Will I find the 83/93 in the Harmony database? I know I should post in another more appropriate forum but I figure someone here has the experience to answer my question. Thanks.

-83 is there. -93 uses the same codes.

Yes, I have been doing this with my Harmony 880 since I received and installed the BDP-93 on friday. Works flawlessly and the range is actually better than with the original remote.

Another question - how do I exit the 'Home' menu without either power off or open/close to load a disc? Pressing the Return doesn't do anything.

Netflix streaming has also been flawless so far. I am using a wired ethernet connection. The invocation was fairly intuitive and appreciated by the Mrs, with one glitch resulting in an inadvertent exit to the Oppo standy screen - will try to reproduce the exact sequence tonight. Just wish Netflix would expand the selection of titles available for instant streaming, and provide 5.1

Very hard to locate the buttons on the front panel...does look nice though.

Has anyone gotten the IR port to work on the back? It worked fine on my 83, but not with the 93. Not sure if it's a FW bug or a compatibility issue with my IR repeater setup.

Hi Jacob or any other Owner of the BDP-93,

Can you tell me if there is Internet Radio streaming available from non-subscription based stations like Shoutcast, RadioTime or RadioBox?

Thanks

Hasn't the cable been changed between the two models?

Not that I'm aware of. A 1/8" mono cable still fits the 93 but it doesn't react to IR at all, not even through the front sensor when it's plugged in.

don't forget the IR jack on the back of the OPPO is 3 wire: it puts out +5 VDC on the tip (I assume this applies to the -93 as well but have not received my unit)

OPPO has adapter cables to go to a standard 2 wire plug to connect to an IR block: or make your own using sleeve and ground: no connection to tip

I believe that is changed on the -93.

sorry if this is in the wrong place. Will their be a place to talk about the upcomming 95 and what great audiophile features it will have?
post #89 of 26585
The IR jacks on the -93 are different than the -83. The -83 has a 3-wire with a hot tip and requires a "stereo to mono" adapter cable to interface with most IR distributions systems. The -93 has a standard mono jack with no power and does not need the adapter cable.

The -93's front sensor is disabled when you use the jack, the -83's is not.

Thanks for the info. I'll try another cable.
