If someone knew how to do this, I think they would become very popular.

I cannot get my bdp95 to connect to the Internet , the hard wire shows it not being connected and I can't get the wireless to work as well, it just tells me that connection failed when I try to scan for an ssid, it did work once upon a time, is there a way to reset the network adapter on the 95 or any other idea would be most appreciated.

Leave the Oppo set to "auto" DHCP Leave the player turned on, and reboot your router. If that doesn't result in a connection, most likely there's an issue with hardware or settings in the router.

okay looks like my Ethernet connection on the back of the player is a little flakey so I went to the USB wireless key and finally have a decent connection. What started all this was trying to use an app to control the 95 but I had no success with the HD Mediacontrol app by Oppo, it can't seem to find the player, has anybody else had any success with this app, also now that I had to use up a USB port for the key I am left with only one port, does the player support a USB hub such that I could use more than one drive.

I believe the HD Media Control app is only compatible with the -103 and -105...for the -95 there is an Oppo remote app that works well - have been using that one.
post #10506 of 11017
The 'droid version of the Media Control app works w/ the 95. But sorry, I don't use iDevices...

One of the things I noticed with the above is the Ethernet connector requires a good firm push to ensure the latch is properly engaged and the connector fully home on the rear of the 95 and 93. If there is a problem with the Ethernet connection (unless it is a router setting) 90% of the time in my experience it is the RJ45 connector termination can be intermittent particularly if the cable has been well used. Worth trying another cable or reterminating the existing one if you have the tools. IMHO I use wireless in only few applications as it can be disturbed by so many outside factors (wireless TV links, mobile and portable phones just to name a few) and find a hard wired Ethernet connection, where practical, so much more reliable.

Hey all. I pre apologize for what I'm sure will be a very redundant question. I have spent all my time on AVS in the audio forums and have yet to research the OPPO Blu ray players. What are the major differences and advantages of these high end players over the $100 Panasonic run of the mill Blu ray player? I can see where having a top notch unit which is actually reading the information off of the disc is key. But to a oppo newbie, why is it what seems to be an "essential" piece of the system so important smile.gif?

Note that the BDP-95 is out of production. The current players are the BDP-103 and -105.

They have a lot of features. Whether they are of interest to you, only you can say.

OPPO has always been good with legacy support. Analog audio, component video (gone in the current players), SACD and DVD-A.

They support 50hz content for those who import, both on DVD and Blu-ray. (Region free for BR requires a third party hardware mod). The players produce both 50 and 60hz output for those who have multi-system TVs.

Source Direct output for those going to video processors.

Large set of media file formats.

OPPO players get tested by technical reviewers and always produce "textbook" video levels, which is not always the case elsewhere.

OPPO customer support is famous for the personal touch. Current players come with a 2-year warranty. If you are out of warranty they have reasonable fixed-price repair and still fix the first models they ever made.

Thanks for the response! So let's say in my system I need nothing else from my Blu ray player other than to play the discs, is it worth it to buy an OPPO?

Do we get any higher quality audio or video from the cheap Blu ray to the OPPO's?

I think at one time they were one of only a few bluray players that output reference video and they actually keep the firmware updated with discovered issues..

Over the years the dynamics have changed where you can now buy a $150 Panny and get that reference video. The difference is if Panny breaks, you throw it away and go get another one. The Oppo breaks and you can get it fixed.

Another benefit of the Oppo is the ongoing firmware updates that can be accommodated via the Ethernet port.

Yea, that kind of customer service can make one feel REALLY good about buying their products and owning one smile.gif

Not an easy question to answer. Better? Probably not. Oppo players are universal players with abundant features. If you don't want the features then don't buy one. Sort of a "if you have to ask - you don't need it" type thing. That said, it was Oppo who introduced me to SACD and DVD-A as well as media file playback and my world is better for it. I'm pretty sure they also cure cancer and promote world peace. wink.gif

Haha! Reminds me of some of the Audio Quest or whatever those expensive cable brands are. One guy descriptively told how his 10k speaker cables generated electricity for his house. Funny stuff. Ok, I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing any audio or video quality for Blu ray movies. Music I have Apple lossless audio files on the Mac in which I access through my apple via home sharing.

It's no such scam. Some people actually need a (universal) player with high quality DACs and analog output, depending on their receiver / preamp. Doesn't have to be Oppo though.

Please Help! How to view HD video downloaded from KQED.

I have an HD Opera video downloaded from KQED in .ts format. When I wanted to view via my OPPO 95, It only plays a sub-channel:mad:, instead of the primary channel which is my opera channel. Please tell me how to select/choose the primary channel short of edit out the entire sub-channel which is too much of a hassle. There is no problem when I play it, for example, from Windows Media Player.Thanks in advance.
post #10522 of 11017
Use a conversion program and convert it to mkv format. Might try make mkv, it's free.
post #10523 of 11017
Thanks for the guidance. I will certainly give it a try.
I google the internet, there are paid software.
Where I could get the freeware. Please kindly advise.

Also check out their forums, lots of help with conversions, file types, use of other programs, etc.

Thanks, but tried didn't work out, meaning still showing the sub-channel. Seems I just have to go thru the hassle to edit out the sub-channel. Thanks for your kind effort smile.gif.

No need to edit it out. You should be able to select the channel you want when playing the .mkv file. When you make a .mkv file you can choose which audio or sub-title channels you want to keep. smile.gif

Thanks! You mean there is a selection button on Oppo 95?

Thread Starter 
Press the AUDIO or the SUBTITLE button to change between the available audio and subtitle streams found in the MKV container.
post #10529 of 11017
If you want to get rid of the subchannel when converting your .ts to mkv container, you can try MKVMergeGUI. It will show you the audio/video/subtitle tracks inside your .ts and will let you mux into an mkv just the ones you select. I found a very nice step-by-step guide on e-how that explains it all very clearly.
