Official OPPO BDP-95 Owner's Thread - Page 357

post #10681 of 11017
Just to let those who care know it has been confirmed to me by oppo European technical support that there remains an issue with YouTube account login and pairing details being retained after powering down in the latest firmware. It is necessary to re enter after every power cycle. Can any US users confirm this is exclusive to the euro firmware or it effects them as well as some seemed convinced there was no issue? Thanks.

I don't believe official support ever appeared in the release notes, or if there might be problems with specific disc copies. We presume it works because the players support AVCHD, which is a legitimate consumer format with a structure parallel to BDMV.

I am not sure but I though it just went into the BDMV folder and you could play the specific mt2s or mpls-files? I was just real happy it played the actual "disc" when I press Enter on the BDMV folder. So I dont lose this ability if I upgrade the firmware to the latest? I used to stream via my PC through Wild Media Server but it has some problems with seamless branching BDs.

It's still working and plays the folder structure, not just the individual M2TS files.

These days, on the OPPO, that's true. Some PC software and some media players will open and play ISO files, though.

So I've started using my BDP-95 to listen to the flacs I ripped from my cd collection. It's got a couple fo problems:

Songs are always presented in alphabetical order. Also, it doesn't seem to see the playlist files that were created for each album. So the only way to play an album in the order it was designed to be listened is to create a playlist using the laborious method via the oppo remote.

Is there any sort of playlist that the oppo will recognise and play?

Is there anyway to save a play list created and load it later?


Finally, I am on a pretty old version of the BIOS but before I update I would like to see the changelist. I can't find it anywhere, can someone send me a link to it?

Cheers!

What did you use to rip your cds?

DBPoweramp usually names the ripped tracks 01 Title, 02 Title, etc, ensuring the track are played in the order they appeared on the cd (note: numbering 1, 2, will not work, must be 01 title, 02 title, etc). I don't know about other rippers.

The 95 will not recognise playlist files. The only playlist it will use is whatever you create in any particular session, and cannot be saved. This has been discussed in this thread before - use the "Search this thread" and type playlist.

Cannot help you with the change list for firmware update, but would recommend it. It is generally recommended that after a firmware update, you do a factory reset.

1. How the playlist is presented is a factor of your DLNA server. For example, Twonky presents in alphabetical order. The foobar2000 dlna plugin presents in track order. I am sure there are technical experts that can explain the reasons for this. I'm not one of them smile.gif

2. Don't upgrade the firmware. Thereare a number of problems with the current firmware.

CORRECTION: The firmware history for BOTH the 93 and the 95 players is maintained in the first post of the 93 owner's thread, not this one.

Sorry guys, I'm a bit at a loss here though - what are the problems with the latest firmware exactly?? I have been running it for a week or so, and have not noticed anything un-toward, although I've only been streaming FLAC's and watched 1 Bluray. Please inform if you could.

Thanks,
Brian

See the 93 thread. For me it is the aspect ratio screwing up on MKV playback, which is the majority of what I do with the player frown.gif

Anybody know if this new Netflix interface they're talking about will show up on our BDP-95's?

Mine recently screwed up the aspect ratio on a mp4 file too, the parody of "Supersonic Man" from Rifftrax. Played the 16:9 movie in 4:3 with black bars on the sides, making everyone look too tall and skinny.

Your best bet for an answer is to check directly with Oppo.

Do you have TV Aspect Ratio set to 16:9 Wide/Auto? See if setting it to 16:9 Wide helps.

This would be a temporary workaround; the WIDE/AUTO setting should have no effect on 16:9 content, and you need it for 4:3 content.

Somebody on the 93 thread discovered that, if you eject the tray after the video starts the aspect will correct itself. You can then close the tray and it will be okay.

I was watching music videos the other day, and I will tell you it got pretty annoying having to do that every few minutes biggrin.gif

I think I'll just skip this FW update.

Oppo 95 MX 150 Handshake problem?

I have been having a problem with my Mcintosh MX 150 when playing 3D material with my Oppo 95. I have the Oppo HDMI 2 hooked into the MX 150 for sound and HDMI 1 directly feeding the display. I switch between a projector and a large LED display. In all cases the sound cuts in and out randomly. I have found no combination of settings that seem to work and I have used various cables. As a test I bought a Sony BDP S790 with dual HDMI outs and it seems to work fine, however I am not convinced it is really the Oppo. Does anyone have any knowledge of this type of problem. Much Appreciated.
post #10700 of 11017
^ Check that Video Setup > Primary Output is set to HDMI 1. If that fixes it, you are done.

Also set HDMI Options > Video Only (HDMI 1) to YES. If THAT fixes it, you are done.

Next, physically disconnect any HDMI cable between the AVR and the Display. If THAT fixes it, then your Display is keeping that HDMI Input "live", even though it is not selected for viewing. That screws up the HDMI copy protection check because there are now two live HDMI paths going to one device (the Display). This may be complicated by the fact that you are using a switch to change between your two Displays.

First see if the problem still exists if you temporarily bypass that switch (i.e., cable so only one Display can be used).

Whichever unused Input is causing the problem (on the switch or on the Display), you may be able to adjust its settings so that it truly shuts down when not selected. The typical culprit here is HDMI CEC (remote control over the HDMI cable). Try turning that off in every device including the switch. On the Display, that may require using a different input socket.

If still no joy, give OPPO a call. They may have history with that AVR.

Thanks for your help,
The HDMI settings in the Oppo are as you recommended. As far as the switch is concerned the problem still occurs if the switch is taken out of the chain. CEC is off on all devices. I have heard that the MX 150 has some handshake issues, but I am a little puzzled why the inexpensive S 790 works and the Oppo does not. Any other Ideas are welcome.

How long is the HDMI cable to the display?
post #10703 of 11017
2m to the display,35ft to the projector. the line to the projector is HDMI over cat 5 e. I have also used a straight HDMI cable that has work just fine for other signals
post #10704 of 11017
try hooking the Oppo to the projector with a shorter cable. It could be that the Oppo's output cannot handle the longer run, this may be caused by a slightly lower voltage signal.

And you also tested with the HDMI *OUTPUT* of the AVR physically disconnected?

If still having problems, give OPPO Tech Support a call or email. They may have history with your model of AVR.

Hi list,

 

I've just acquired a very slightly used 95 and am exploring what it does… lots more than my previous universal player (Denon 3930) or bluray (cheap Sony).

 

I've connected the HDMI2 to my TV so I can see SACD and digital file metadata while still feeding the analogue output to my receiver. (The receiver thinks I've got two machines: if I set it to DVD it takes the HDMI1 feed; set to CD it takes the the analogue output from the 95.)

 

First question (I'm sure there are more to come): when playing an SACD, the TV screen display says "Track Type: SACD PCM".

 

Why PCM? I have the SACD output set to DSD. Is this just a screen display glitch, or is it actually converting my SACDs to PCM?

 

Brandon

post #10707 of 11017
Thread Starter 
Because the HDMI handshake is telling the player that SACD DSD is not an acceptable format. Try setting HDMI Audio (Audio Format Setup) to OFF.

Depending on the display, you may need to remove the HDMI cable completely.
post #10708 of 11017

Thanks, switching HDMI audio off worked: it now reads SACD DSD. Of course, I can't leave it this way or I couldn't watch BDs with sound… But I wasn't so much concerned that the readout was wrong as that the 95 was for some reason actually converting DSD to PCM.

 

Second question: I'm playing a disc through the analogue outputs, but have the TV on to read metadata. If I turn the TV off, the 95 stops playing, then restarts from the beginning of the track. Very annoying.

 

Playing a FLAC through the USB, turning the TV off doesn't restart the sound at the beginning of the track, but it does cause the sound to stutter a few times,

 

I'm guessing this is another HDMI handshake issue, but is there a way to turn HDMI control off? I'd like the HDMI to be a one-way conduit FROM the 95 to the TV. I don't want it controlling the 95.

Can't be done. What's happening is that the player senses the TV has gone away and so now it has to re-configure the HDMI output accordingly, even when the result is no HDMI output. This is due to copy protection checks built into how HDMI works, among other things.

So you get an HDMI handshake retry -- that's the pausing you are noticing with FLAC. In the case of SACD playback on the 95, another consequence is that the track starts over.

What you might want to try instead is using Pure Mode (Pure button upper left on the remote) to blank the video output instead of turning off the display.
--Bob
post #10710 of 11017

Thanks, Bob. I was afraid that might be the case. I know about the Pure mode, and it might come to that, but I was trying not to have the TV sitting there drawing power. I'd hoped component video cables might be a low-tech solution, but the HDMI1 is still connected to the TV via the AVR and that seems to be enough to cause the problem.

 

Once I get the computer connected to the DAC via USB (instead of using a thumb drive) I hope I'll be able to control things using a remote iPad and won't need the TV screen.
