Why? Because of the linear power supply.
Cool that area (with top ventilation holes) and the player will remain as cool as a 93.

I do not know much about BDP93, but is very possible that BDP95 use more intensive that processor than 93 does. The heat coming from regulators is a plus for that already spread out by the processor. Is quite easy to observe that the processor heat most the entire enclosure... Specially when video stage is in use. But anyway, Oppo should cared a little more about a better (passive) cooling solution...

The differences between the 2 models are the analog board and the power supply used to power the analog board. There should be no difference in load on the processor.

I guess I'm calling Oppo Monday also. Let me know if you figure anything out. Thanks.
Sorry to have taken so long to respond but we were out of town this past weekend.

What I figured out is that EVERYTHING I tried had no effect in resolving my problem so I packed up my unit and dropped it off as we left town. Oppo should receive it Tuesday as I am only one day's shipping distance from Mountain View. I'll keep y'all posted as I receive info from Oppo.

I am kinda surprised that as of Friday they were still claiming that they hadn't heard of this problem yet. I received the RMA e-mail on Friday. Maybe the right hand is unaware of what the left hand is doing?rolleyes.gif

ETA; I never did try changing the downmix to 5.1. Even if that did somehow "fix" the problem I would find that "fix" unacceptable as I do have a 7-2 setup and am not gonna downsize just because of some faulty firmware problem.

HDMI connection voodoo



Previously...

I had experienced the strangeness of having to turn on components in your HDMI equipped setup in a particular fashion, so each component can 'talk' to each other properly, otherwise you have to reset the connection for them to recognise one another.

I found the best sequence was TV, Amp, then lastly the Blu Ray player

More HDMI vodoo this past week...

I have been having stuttering on my Oppo on the analogue connection recently, and initially I thought it might be a dirty laser head. However I ruled that out as I could play with no issues via HDMI. It was only through the analogue outputs and I check my amp, the cables, cleaned the laser head etc.

Then I remembered shifting it during my TV calibration recently and reconnecting the HDMI outputs. I now use HDMI 1 for audio, and HDMI 2 for video, which runs direct from the Oppo to the TV. Somehow this was switched, and the Oppo was "confused" and kept stuttering when I switched on the TV. With the TV turned off, there was no issue. I also lost 5.1 DTS-MA.

After checking my connections, and restoring the right HDMI output, things were back to normal.

So when you add something new, check your connections.
post #9425 of 11017
^ That last result is "normal". When both HDMI outputs are live, the HDMI 1 output gets a Stereo down-mix for audio -- intended for cases where folks might use built in speakers in a TV. In your case you had HDMI 1 going to the AVR, so no multi-channel audio. When using both outputs HDMI 2 needs to go to the AVR.

Next, when you turn anything on or off in the HDMI chain a new handshake is required. While that's happening all audio gets muted.

Problem with OPPO-95 and tv remotes not responding (temporary)
While playing a blu ray The OPPO remote stopped responding to any command. The red circle with the line thru it each time. The only thing I could get to do was STOP on the OPPO itself.
My TV remote did not respond either during the same time period. The only common source for these two inputs is the Verizon Fios provided router. I never do any streaming. About 2 hours later the tv remote started responding and then the OPPO did too. Has anyone ever experience this problem or know the cause?

Were you by any chance watching 3D video? I'm not sure what your network setup would have to do with any of this.
post #9428 of 11017
Thanks Torqdog, I just called Oppo support and he told me to send them an email (service@oppodigital.com) and they would send me a temporary firmware. It was a quick call so i didn't ask any questions. I did ask if they were getting calls from other users about the same issue and he said yes. So, it's not just us two! smile.gif

Anyhow, i'll post back when i get a response.

"Were you by any chance watching 3D video? I'm not sure what your network setup would have to do with any of this".
No 3D for me since I have a vintage rear projection 2003 Hitachi. I tested everything; batteries,different blurays,dvds, pulling the plugs, etc. My 2nd tv remote didn't work but the tv worked upstairs where the cablebox isn't a recorder. Possibly the non functional FIOS box affected my OPPO. CD and sacd worked on the OPPO because they just started.But you couldn't pause or skip to another track. Yes, I could open and close the tray from the OPPO.

Regarding the DTS, and DTS-HD audio corruption issue discussed above:

Word just out in Beta Test Club is that the engineers have already diagnosed the issue. It is an interaction between the 0723 firmware and certain production batches of the BDP-95 hardware -- which is why only some folks were seeing it. It looks like there's an easy firmware fix.

OPPO tech support should have the "quick fix" firmware release available shortly for anyone affected. Presumably the Official firmware download will be updated shortly as well.

Hey Guys, I got a quick response from Oppo Service. They sent me a link to a new firmware load which i downloaded to a USB drive. Then, I applied the firmware to my BDP-95 and all is well. I only played portions of two blu-rays and the noise/static/popping is now gone and I'm back to normal.

You have to hand it to Oppo Service, great response time and attention to a problem. Not to mention you can't find an easier way to update firmware.

Sorry, just my .02. I've been impressed dealing with Oppo. It's something you don't see anymore in these days of outsourcing.

If I wasn't experiencing another, seperate problem with my 95 (channel volume dropouts) I'd be kicking myself for being too pro-active by rushing my unit into Oppo. It's simply amazing how fast they got a bead on the problem and developed a fix. Kudos to Oppo and their over-the-top customer service.

I'm gonna have to give my kudos to Bob and The AVS Forum. Even though I reported this problem to Oppo on August 1st, I have not received the email about the fix. I had to read it on the AVS Forum and now my player is in a trailer somewhere in dairyland.

I asked this before what would you like for new feature in the next generation Oppo BDP -95

- Better DACs (I am not sure it is possible)
- Native 4K
- iPad ap
- Passive cooling
- Silver casing (I am tired of black boxes)
- Aluminum cd drawer rather than plastic


Please ad to the list

BDP95 have already the best possible DACs (chips) today (and maybe for the near future...) Unfortunately Oppo do not take all out of those high end chips, at the maximum they can give... Smaller electronic components around the DACs and more compact/smaller audio board (shorter traces) is also very necessary for performances increasing in audio stage of the device... So, at least one can say quite right "better DACs" for the nest edition.
Native 4k will be soon a must for the players class like this one.
Passive cooling is definitely a must! A fan in a quite high end audio device is a non sense. If the enclosure will be build some how using aluminium, then it can be a easy task to find a good solution for an passive cooling. So, will also be more easy to satisfy the customers who like more a silver like colour...

There's a separate thread where folks are debating what they would like to see in OPPO's future products (along with speculation on when such products might be released):

Post count comes from all the threads that a member has posted in starting immediately after becoming a member. Just imagine how many posts one would probably read while building up more than 20,000 posts. eek.gif

FYI, OPPO changed the 71-0723 Firmware to contain the fixes of the test firmware that some of you have received. If you had previously upgraded the firmware and are experiencing static like noises on the analog outputs, try upgrading the firmware again using the CD or the USB method (Network installs will upgrade to future firmware, but will not upgrade again to the current firmware).

If after upgrading the firmware again you still experience issues, then you will need to contact OPPO.

Was this after August 14th? Because that is the latest posted date on the site.

The number and date released will not change. It is a simple revision so unless you downloaded it today, you are using the "non-fixed" version.

Is there a way to reinstall the firmware via wireless?
post #9449 of 11017
Thread Starter 
No. You must use the CD or USB method if you want to re-install the current firmware release. Ethernet and Wireless will only upgrade to a future firmware release.

No. Download and install according to the USB (preferred) or burned-disc methods. Instructions are on the OPPO page with the download links. It is easy to do a USB install with an inexpensive USB stick formatted as FAT, and that's a skill well worth learning for the future.
