Thread Starter 
Sounds like the drive is just not waking back up. Do you have a USB hub you can connect the harddrive to?
post #10622 of 11024
I may have a hub somewhere at home. What's the thinking with the hub?

As for supplying power, it should be ample. The USB ports on the Oppo are rated for 500mA. Half an ampere! Using the front port by the way, but I have seen the same behaviour with the rear port.

The hub may always be powered or may keep the drive active; the player may mount the drive differently when going through the hub
post #10624 of 11024
I see, I'll test it out at home (About 9 hours from now). I don't have much confidence though, a hub is still a passive device.

Also, which firmware enabled Cinavia? It's not mentioned in the changelog over at the 93 thread. The player was sold to me as "ISO capable and Cinavia-free". But firmware is 0908. Not really a big deal though, still got it for a good price.

No Cinavia on the -93 or -95.

Ah awesome. I thought it was now a requirement, even through firmware upgrade.

For machines introduced after a certain date, yes. OPPO's older players got in under the wire.

Some vendors -- Sony, obviously -- have been more aggressive in adding Cinavia detection to their older products with firmware upgrades.

OPPO has not yet updated their website, but you can download the USB ZIP file here: http://download.oppodigital.com/BDP93/BDP9x-79-0910.zip

Release date: October 15, 2013
Category: Latest Official Release
Main Version: BDP9x-79-0910
Loader Version: CN0900
Sub Version: MCU93-09-0218 (BDP-93), MCU95-08-0218 (BDP-95)

1. Resolved a playback issue with several Blu-ray movies recently released by HBO Studios, known titles include "Parade's End" and "Behind the Candelabra". Customers have reported that once the disc is loaded and the Main Menu shows, either choosing the PLAY or selecting a scene will cause the player to lock up with nothing on the TV screen and all zeroes on the front panel of the player. This issue has been resolved.

2. Resolved a loading issue with several TV episodes in the Film Fresh application. Customers have reported that those episode would fail to load and cause the player to lock-up. Samples included "Super Natural". This issue has been resolved.

3. Improved the support for "Episode Resume" feature observed on "Game of Thrones: Season 1 (BD, 2012)". It is similar to the "Disc Unbound" feature observed on new FOX releases, which allows the audience to select the episode located on another disc, and once the correct disc is loaded, the player will directly jump to the pre-selected episode and start to play.

4. Resolved a playback issue with some MKV files. Customers have reported that if they keep pressing the FWD button to increase the fast forward speed to 3x and beyond, the current playback would automatically stop. This issue has been resolved.

5. Added an "OFF" choice to the OSD Mode, which hides all the on-screen information unless the DISPLAY button is pressed. This can be set in "Setup Menu"->"Video Setup" -> "Display Options" -> "OSD Mode".

6. Expanded the Subtitle Shift option from "-5 ~ +5" to "-10 ~ +10", which allows finer control of the subtitle position on the display screen.

7. General disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.

is thow for eu model or for europena model?
post #10630 of 11024
^ The new firmware link posted by NEUROMANCER is for North American version players only. OPPO UK will post the firmware update for EU version players as soon as it is ready -- usually takes a few days after it is released by OPPO Digital in the US.

Has anyone installed it on US model 93/95 yet?
My 95 has the latest firmware from Oct 2012 that is currently listed on their support site.

Just did my update via the internet connection with no problems.
post #10636 of 11024
I'm gonna ask a stupid question based entirely on laziness. Is it really necessary to do a factory reset when installing this FW update?
post #10637 of 11024
^ Ya gotta ask yourself one question. "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do you?

Those headphones look nice.
But one thing I'd like to see on their next gen BD player (bdp-115?) would be balanced outputs for all channels, not just the front L/R.

HELP

I just upgraded my OPPO BDP-95 yesterday and for some reason I am only getting 2 Channel PCM out of HDMI 1. I have done a factory reset and left it unplugged over night with no fix. I also reset my Yamaha CX-A5000 to factory defaults and reloaded all my settings. I have the oppo set to use HDMI 1 out as my primary, and the audio output set as bit stream. Is this normal and I just didn't notice it before. My wife bought me Pacific Rim and I had to switch to using HDMI 2 as my output then the Yammy saw the DTS stream with no issue. One thing I noticed and the reason I reset the Yammy is even with no disc in the player the Yammy was showing a PCM stream active and would not switch to anything else. I am going to grab the wifes 103 and see if that is doing the same thing but any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated as I am sure all was working correctly before I applied the newest update.eek.gif
post #10640 of 11024
Check your setting in the audio menu for either DSD or PCM decoding.

Do you have both the HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 outputs cabled? If so, audio on HDMI 1 will be a stereo down-mix (for use with a TV's built-in stereo speakers). Full audio will be on HDMI 2. If you disconnect HDMI 2, or set the device at the other end so that HDMI 2 is no longer "live", then HDMI 1 will get full audio.

(On the 103, HDMI 1 will be muted for audio when HDMI 2 is live unless you use Dual Display mode.)

Bob

I can't say this enough but thank you!!! I have had this cabled the same way for a couple of months using both HDMI connections but usually use the Yamaha DSP for movies, but for some reason last night I decided to try it with no processing involved. So here is my setup;

HDMI 1 to Yamaha AV1 input
HDMI2 to Yamaha AV4 input (HDMI Audio off on Yamaha)
Oppo RCA stereo to AV4 stereo input on Yamaha (Stereo RCA selected for audio)
Oppo XLR stereo to Audio 4 on Yamaha

I have it set this way so I can display the oppo when listening to music on a hard drive I connect by switching to AV4 on the Yamaha.

So what your saying I should do is;

HDMI 1 to Yamaha AV4 (set the HDMI audio option for HDMI 1 on the oppo to video only)
HDMI 2 to Yamaha AV1

Stereo down mix on the oppo to down mix 7.1

Your expertise and help with these units is appreciated beyond belief and I am sure other forum members feel the same. Thank you again and I hope to hear from you soon.

Take Care
Smitty
post #10643 of 11024
^ I'm not sure I follow exactly what you are trying to accomplish with this set of connections. One thing that complicates it is whether the Yamaha keeps it's NON-selected HDMI Inputs "live". That may vary depending on settings in the Yamaha -- for example whether HDMI CEC (remote control over HDMI) is enabled in the Yamaha.

Normally you would not connect BOTH HDMI outputs of the 95 to the AVR. I.e., if you are using both outputs, the normal arrangement is HDMI 1 direct to the Display (for video) and HDMI 2 to the AVR (for audio).

If you do have both connected to the AVR, then if the AVR keeps both of those connections "live" -- regardless of which, if either, of them is currently selected for input -- then the HDMI 1 connection will carry a stereo down-mix for audio.

NOTE: The down-mix setting in the OPPO does not affect it's HDMI audio output -- on either HDMI. The Down-mix setting is for the multi-channel Analog outputs.

Bob

Got it figured out, in my zeal to connect my CX-a5000 in Aug (replaced a RX-A3010), I must have forgotten about hdmi 1 being stereo only down mix when using both Hdmi outputs. Since I have been tweaking it and checking out the Yamaha DSP's I hadn't until last night tried watching a movie in "straight" mode. So I swapped the cables going into the Yamaha inputs and all is well. I did have it configured as you suggested but the wife wanted it easier to use so that's why both run into the avr (no changing inputs on the tv). So here is how I have it now;

Oppo settings
Hdmi 1 - video only going to av4 on Yamaha
Stereo RCA - going to RCA inputs on av4 on Yamaha (this is for dedicated audio playback and using oppo menu navigation)
Hdmi 2 - to Yamaha av1 and set as primary output

I must have had it this way on my old unit and when I re cabled everything totally spaced it out. Oh well, a gloomy Sunday morning weather wise and time spent reconfiguring my oppo and Pre amp beats any day at work! Plus my wife knows nothing about audio so she leaves me be while I configure everything again.

Thank you again Bob, your expertise with these units is beyond doubt and greatly appreciated.

Pacific Rim is excellent:)

Oppo BDP-95 Firmware release may kill ISO Support

I have found out that the message on my screen was for an update to my Oppo BDP-95 and not my Mitsubishi HC5 projector. Upon reading about the update before I tried it I have read that the current support for ISO files will be disabled in the new firmware version. I haven't copied any DVD or BR discs to this format but I want to keep this option so I am not going to bother with the update. If you have these players, you should be aware of this possible change.
post #10646 of 11024
This is not new at all. ISO support has been disabled for some time. It was removed with firmware 64-0119. Also you didn't need to create a separate post/thread for this topic, couid have been asked and answered in this Official Oppo BDP-95 thread.

Ditto on this. It's how I have my 95 connected.
post #10648 of 11024
I had Smitty's issue over the weekend too. If it weren't for that little tidbit in McClain's FAQs, I would have pulled my hair out!

Wish Oppo gave support for audio playlists. The 95's isn't a renderer, so you can't even push a playlist to it.

For reference, for other forums members:

You can get 3D video on either HDMI1 or HDMI2, but not both at the same time.
When HDMI2 is active, audio on HDMI1 will be downmixed to stereo.

Okay, sorry about that. I guess I should have checked first.
post #10650 of 11024
I recently (actually my son did it) upgraded my BDP-95 to Version BDP9x-79-0910, but now I am having a problem with the subtitles not being displayed correctly. After reading one the fixes:

"6. Expanded the Subtitle Shift option from "-5 ~ +5" to "-10 ~ +10", which allows finer control of the subtitle position on the display screen."

it may just be a setting, but I have not tried adjusting this setting yet. Come to think of it, I don't think he did a factory reset. A couple things for me to try.
