Here's my deal, I run assest DLNA on my PC I force the audio to .wav to the oppo,
so my pc is doing a WMA lossless to .wav conversion and serving it up to the oppo.
forcing to LPM also has the same results.
Very often on 16bit 44k material the first minute will skip alot, 24 bit stuff rarely ever plays at all skip skip skip skip etc.
Now I've done alot of trouble shooting on my wireless network, in the exact same area as the oppo player I'm getting 90+ percent signal strength and well over 15MB signal to the internet. So the bandwidth to the PC itself accessing local storage should be WAY more than needed to stream lossless audio at 16 or 24bit. My router can do 450MB on the local wan.
I've switched out to better routers, my PC is relatively new now but it did the same thing using my older pc.
Everything in the streaming chain is performing well and more than enough to stream lossless audio without an issue to the oppo but the oppo just seems quirky and skips alot on audio it should not have a problem with.
Wired Ethernet is not an option and I suspect for the VAST majority of people they really need good wifi performance from the oppo for their lossless audio streaming needs.
So oppo can you please improve the reliability and speed of the wifi dongle with the oppo 95?
It is clearly the weak link here. I've either replaced everything else in the stream chain or tested it to be more than enough to properly stream lossless audio to the oppo.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Are their any better wifi dongles that will work with the Oppo? Any better DLNA software that will steam wma lossless audio and allow you to force .wav or lpm to the oppo?
If the oppo would just play WMA lossless natively I'd just plug a hard drive into it but I have almost 2TB of wma lossles and am not going to take the time to convert it all and have 4 TB of duplicate audio. This is why I have to use a DLNA server to convert WMA to wav on the fly.
