Did OPPO say they couldn't repair it? Usually they offer a fixed-price out of warranty repair that is very reasonable. It would not include the region mod, though. They would have to remove that if it is internal.

Well, they were not specific and mentioned contacting Solutions A/V here in Canada for possible repair, otherwise I would have to ship it to them. guess I would have to ask for a quote.

Could you recommend an USB hub that works with the Oppo BDP-95? I'd like to connect at least 4 USB devices at the same time. Thank you!

Any standard powered USB hub will work with the player. I personally use the one that came with my Rock Band game.

Hi all:

 

Could anyone who has sold their BDP-95 player (w/ISO support or not...pls indicatesmile.gif) PM me what price they sold for their player for? Was it on Agon, ebay or private sell? I'm trying to sell my 95 with ISO support firmware of Dec 2011 and am trying to decide on a fair market price for the unit. Now that Oppo has completely removed ISO upport via SMB on the newer BDP-103/105 units, maybe i'll carry more value?

 

Thanks,

David

Not only that: the -95 still plays BDMV backups, has pre-sunset component, and no Cinavia detection.

They just don't make 'em like that anymore!

For the full, nostalgia experience, pair it with a Kuro plasma, and the Cohen Media Blu-ray of the restored "Thief of Bagdad".

Any possibility that Oppo might include the DSD file playback option (as for the 105) also for the 95 in the future? If there is no real technical reason why this would not be possible, I hope that they will.

Language architecture is different, so I would not expect this to be back ported. It is not impossible, just unlikely.

I have been looking throgh all the posts in this thread and I am sure this has been repeated but for clarity could one of you kind folks help me out. Here is my scenario, i currently have a Yamaha RX-A3010 and Oppo BDP-95 and my question is this. Can you have both the HDMI with Audio goin out of the Oppo into the Yamaha HDMI input and 7.1 analog audio out from the oppo into the Yamaha multi channel in simultaneously? I know phycically it is not an issue on either device but what if any changes would I have to make to the oppo setup menu to switch between the two. I prefer the HDMI connection so on a whim if I want to use the Yamaha DSPs for audio playback they are available, but comeing from old school analog pre-amps there are times I just want direct pure analog signal with the Yamaha doing no processing whatsever. Has anyone done the Multichannel anolog with the yamaha receivers instead of HDMI and what did you think? Better, same, or worse. I previously had a B&K reference 50 S2 pre-amp and loved the sound (if had no HDMI so analog was the only option for HD movies), but with the Yamaha going HDMI something is missing and I just can't pin it down, ran YPAO, tweeked all speaker settings, ran an SPL the whole nine yards, so this is what has me thinking there is something more with the multichannel outputs. any guidance or feedback would be immensly appreciated.

P.S. I am running an ATI 2007 amp with the yamaha so running the Oppo direct to amp is an option using the Multichannel outs, feedback on this is also appreciat:cool:ed.

My setup is similar to yours. I use a Yamaha RX-A1000 with the Oppo & an Emotiva XPA-5 external amp. I have the Yamaha connected to the Oppo via both analog & HDMI. This is so because every now & then there are movies that my wife likes to watch without turning on the HT, so I use the HDMI out to the Yamaha to the TV.

Sound wise, I definitely like the analog a LOT better. Not that the HDMI was bad, just the Oppo's dac sounds better to me than the Yamaha's dac. The sound is more fuller, has a lot of depth to it & the high frequencies are much more smoother. On the Yamaha some material sounded glaring to me, of course this is after I have heard the Oppo's analog out. Prior to that when I heard the HDMI I thought it was the best thing smile.gif

Try both & decide for yourself. I wanted to get rid of the Yamaha & just use the Oppo with the Emo but then I would loose my tuner, connectivity to my cable box & aux inputs; so I have kept the Yamaha. since it is connected both ways, doing an A-B comparison in the middle of the movie is a snap. After spending some time you may not like the analog, its all up to personal preference.

I did make the effort of using bluejeans LC-1 rca cable from the Oppo to the Yamaha & from the Yamaha to the amp to keep things consistent. I love the LC-1. Order it from Blue jeans direct & you can get them nicely wrapped in one large tube of techflex, making cable management at the back of your entertainment center a lot easier.

EDIT: To actually answer your question, in the Oppo setup just make sure HDMI audio is enabled. By default the analog out from the Oppo is on, I don' think there is way to turn it off. In the Audio Processing setup, set the distances, set the crossover, set the downmix to 5.1 (or 7.1 if you have that many speakers) , set the volume to fixed & TURN OFF Dynamic Range Compression (DRC). The last option really wakes up the dynamics via analog.

One thing to note, the Yamaha DOES NOT add +10db to the sub signal via analog multi-input. So you will need to bump up the "trim" in the Oppo to 7-8. I have mine at 6.5 & still raise the vol on your sub to compensate. This in turn makes your sub out via HDMI incredibly loud, so you will need to considerably reduce the sub out from the Yamaha. Note that speaker settings in the Yamaha DO NOT affect the multi channel in.

Thank you for the information and it is greatly appreciated. I had a chance to play with my setup this weekend and setup my system as follows. I ran the HDMI1 output with Audio disabled from the oppo to the AV3 HDMI input on the yamaha, I then ran the multichannel analog out from the oppo to the yamaha multichannel inputs. In the yamaha setup menu under the yamaha multichannel input setup I changed the video out to AV3. I then ran the HDMI2 output on the oppo to the yamaha AV1 HDMI input. I also ran the dedicated stereo analog outputs on the oppo to the CD analog input on the yamaha for dedicated stereo. This seems to work great, I can switch between analog and hdmi using the yamaha with ease, I have DSP modes when needed for the HDMI feed and the multichannel inputs have the best video available. I watched Promethius and WOW!! The analog was amazing to hear. The only tweek I want to check is to see if I can assign a dedicated speaker setting thorugh the yamaha to AV1, that may be the best way to adjust for the LFE loss, if not I have a trusty SPL meter and between adjusting the yamaha, the oppo, and the sub should be able to find a happy medium though it may take a bit. On thing I did find out with this setup is the multichannel input does not pass video when selected in passthrough mode. I may depending on WAF purchase a oppo 105 and use that for strictly multichannel use and keep the oppo 95 for HDMI output as the wife is more confortable with just turning on the receiver and playing a movie with minimal steps in between. I will say this after everything was setup my wife of 18 years was looking for the new component she was shure I bought because it sounded so different. (this may be the in for the 105 as the analog outputs are said to be even better). Again thanks for all the info and if you see anything I might have missed or any other ideas please let me know. Half the fun of this hobby is just playing with it all.

Hmm pretty long connection you got there. Here is how I have it.

TV connected to the Yamaha's HDMI-OUT 1, this is the one that supports ARC I believe. Then HDMI-in 1 connect to the Oppo HDMI 1. Thats it. I didnt need to use Oppo's second HDMI.

When in multi-channel-in mode on the Yamaha press the HDMI out button on the remote to select that appropriate HDMI out thats connected to the TV. You can select both outs if you desire. That should take care of your pass through problem.

EDIT: Ok I should really learn to read properly. I just noticed you have the 3010 & not the 1010, so perhaps your multi channel setup options are probably better than the 1000/1010.

As oppo is always listening to their clients, we should send lots of emails and ask for it.

We have nothing to lose.

Call Oppo and ask to buy an analog board direct from them, then you have something to work on. Bottom line: if you need to ask for help then its probably not a great idea to try this unless you're willing to deal with a ruined board.

There are modification shops out there which will do all sorts of modifications to the player -- for a fee. Your problem dealing with one of those may be getting them to agree to JUST change the capacitors.

Google OPPO BDP-95 modifications to start looking for those.

Be aware that some of the modifications these folks are trying to sell are, umm, bizarre. So do your homework.

Hey Guys,


I have a dilemma with my set up and I am looking for some advice.

My set up includes:


Oppo-BDP-95-Blu Ray Player

Pioneer BDP 09FD-Blu Ray Player

DVDO Duo-Video Proccessor

JVC-RS45 Projector

Parsound P7 Multi Analog Pre-AMP


The problem that is occurring is video audio Lip Sync with the combination of my Oppo, DVDO and Parasound.

I purposely purchased the Oppo to take advantage of its analog section that is superb. However when combining it with my DVDO it creates a lyp sinc issue.


DVDO duo does have a lip sync delay but it only works in the digital domain (HDMI Audio) Not Analog. My Pioneer BDP 09FD has a lip sync adjustment that allows me to make the adjustment in the player that allows for the sync adjustment.

Last week Oppo released a firmware update for there new players that now includes an audio sync. I called Oppo in regards to this thinking - great maybe they will be included in the BDP-95 I was disappointed to know that it would not be.

I informed them of my situation and they told me that the release of the new firmware and the addition of the audio sync was specifically a different issue on the new players ONLY and they do not know of any issues with audio sync on the BDP-95.
They said that my problem is not in the player it is the DVDO.

The rep informed me that they can put the request in but most likely will NOT be implemented on the BDP-95.
If you guys can come up with any suggestion on how I can approach a way to get sync the audio with then my system. Other wise I may have to sell my lest then a year player for the new one that allows this adjustment..



Thanks

^^^^

Assuming the video is behind the audio:
Often this is related to video processing in the display itself, not so much the gear in the video chain. 24p image processing is a frequent culprit in displays, and things like "smooth motion" processing. Try fiddling with those settings in your display. Failing a fix there, look for video processing elsewhere that you can live without.

We do know that the video and audio are synched when they leave the player.

I know it's still a long shot, but I have patience.

Looking to purchase a BDP95 for $400 - I assume as the new models come out the older units prices will continue to drop.

If you see one, or have one for sale and will hit that price point, hit me up. I'm adding my phone# to my signature - if it's still there, I'm still looking. If no #, I found one.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME!

Current sales prices on eBay run closer to $700-800. Don't count on that changing soon. Its not out of the question for Oppo to sell a few more refurb units, and you might contact them about that. But usually those are 1st come 1st serve.

Hi JimP.

I have understood that putting top quality capacitors (Mundorf-Jantzen) Achieved not pass DC.
The audio signal does not have curtains, and spends as pure as possible.
There is a modification of Troels Gravesen to a CD, it seems simple to perform and gives very good results.
My problem is that I am not a specialist, and I fear spoiling my team.

I use the analogue stereo and mch outputs on the 95. The interconnect cables are identitical.

When playing stereo cds there is a noticeable difference in sound when I switch between mch and cd on my reciever. Why? Is the 95 processing one and not the other?

The mch input sounds better to my ear than the stereo, wider soundstage, etc. But it seems odd to be playing stereo material thru the mch output. I'd like the stereo input to sound as good as the mch.

Thoughts, suggestions? Many thanks!

My unit has tracking issues while playing DVDs (no issues playing Blu-ray). Anybody else have this issue? For those old enough, tracking from the old VCR days implies that the picture will move up or down while playing and there used to be an actual tracking knob to fix it. For reference, I am using the component video output (don't have an HDMI projector). Please advise. Thanks!

I don't recall that being reported before.

DVDs only, not on Blu-ray? You have Primary Output set to Component?

What output resolution? Does Source Direct show different behavior from 480i or 480p?

The discs are originals, not backups? If backups (or originals without CSS copy protection) you might try the other output resolutions, if your display will accept them.

What you are experiencing is likely due to how your pre-pro or receiver handles the signals from various inputs. Many if not most pre-pros will do what is called "analog bypass" when playing material through the mch inputs and you will not be able to augment the sound with various soundfields produced by the DSP(Digital Signal Processor) inside the pre-pro. When you are playing content through a stereo input, it's quite likely that the signal is passing through the DSP and that in turn is affecting the sound.

To take full advantage of the improved sound coming from the dedicated stereo outputs, try switching them into the front right/front left mch inputs and see if that makes a difference.

If you are playing DVDs, then set DVD 24p Conversion to OFF under Video Setup. This will cause tearing issues at the bottom of the screen.

I am trying to downgrade my EU OPPO BDP-95 to a firmware with .ISO-playback. I have the Bluraychip.dk PRO MOD chip installed and as per instruction I am trying to downgrade the firmware but without success.
Has anyone done this on a BDP-95EU model?

This is the instruction for the PRO MOD:

1 Disconnect ethernet, and any USB devices, and power up the player with no disc in the tray.
2 Press "setup" on remote
3 Scroll down to "Device setup"
4 Place the bar on "Firmware Upgrade"
5 Press RED-8-5-2-0 on the remote.
6 In this menu, press 1-1-4 on the remote.
7 Exit menu again by pressing setup button, NOT the ok button.
8 Now you can downgrade the firmware with the use of a usb stick, just follow the usual instructions from Oppo.

I still get the "firmware is incorrect or corrupt" message when inserting the USB stick with bdp-9xeu-61-1219 firmware... mad.gif

Hi all,
I've been away from this (and the 93 owners) thread for quite some time and even so I did some quite extensive "cross-reading" I need some help from you guys.
Reason I came is basically that I stumbled upon the android oppo media control.... and the need for up-to-date firmware for this app to work.
I'm on the last iso-fw - I didn't back up all my discs in iso, just those where I love the menus or some extras, most of my backups are m2ts (due to the mkv problems with highdef audio). Since I also have backed up most of my audio library something like Oppo Media Control would be REALLY nice!
...but I would have to upgrade...

...so here are my questions:
1. From what I found there is still no way to hack firmware, just a way to roll back using a special modkit?
2. So far 93/95 still allow to use bdmv-folders to replace iso-functionality, but judging from recent 103/105 fw this might be not much longer?
3. BDMV is a decent alternative to retain menus etc? Of course the folder structure is "messier" but from what I read problems are rare and most of the time harddisk related (old, fragmented, slow)???!
4. Are there any other benefits from upgrading my FW? So far I had no problems with blurays, just some mkv/mp4 file play problems (mostly no audio playback)?
5. Oppo Media Remote works like it should and I won't need my secondary display for audio playback and it also adds comfort to browsing my 8TB film backups?
6. Someone is working on a similar app using rs232 but just for IOS?!


Thanks for your help - like I said: I spent quite some hours reading, but I'm still a couple of hundred pages behind on the different forums....

Steffen
