Quick question: can you purchase replacement (factory) remotes for the 103? I have a possible chance of picking up a 103 well under retail, but dude lost the remote frown.gif Can't seem to find any information on replacing this, and even if I can is the $$ worth it.

Awesome. Thanks. Not sure why I couldn't locate that frown.gif

Parker in particular, and pretty much anything released by Sony.

If your resulted MKV files did not include the chapter settings that were present on the BR, then Cinavia will not kick in.

Apparently this has been true for some time. If you are seeing something else, please let us know the details.

As I always warn people (stressing I am without any inside knowledge) this will not get better in the future.

I am pretty sure Parker was on USB, because I was able to remux and put back onto USB to resolve the issue. I could not have done that on optical disc without copying over, remux, then reburn to another disc. And I am sure I did not do that. Sorry if this has been discussed over the last couple week, but I was off this forum for a while. Work sucks sometimes. smile.gif

I haven't found that in my testing (that Cinavia can be detected in MKV on USB) so I'm not sure what's up.

You might ask OPPO for an official word and let us know what they say.

MKV + chapters = Cinavia detection? confused.gif

Again, I'm not able to duplicate your experience, with or without chapters. I rip the BD, run it through Clown_BD then put that M2TS file into MKV container using mkvmerge.

Many universal remotes, including the Harmony line, have OPPO codes available.

If I have an MKV file and Cinavia kicks in, I remux. There is a check box for chapters (Keeping the same chapters as the BD). I uncheck that since the 103 automatically sets up 10 chapters if something doesn't have chapters. And when I play that remuxed MKV, Cinavia does not kick in.

I don't know what's happening here, or have any inside info on Cinavia enforcement, but I just want to keep reminding people:

It would be foolish to depend on any Cinavia workarounds for the long term. As the studios become aware of these holes they will order them plugged.

I am sure this has been discussed, but with eleven thousand oppo103 comments I may have overlooked it.

I have an Oppo 103, Denon 2313, and Gallo 3.1 speakers. The Denon help desk told me to set the Oppo HDMI out to Bitstream in order for the Denon AVR to be able to process DSD CDs. This works: when I play a sacd/dsd in the oppo the Denon LCD window tells me it is processing a DSD signal.

Now my question is this-What is Oppo bitstream? Does it take advantage of the Sabre d/a convertors? Or is the d/a conversion only happening in the 2313?

I would like to take advantage of the Sabre chips even if it is possible...

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to AVSForum.

The player DACs are used only for the analog outputs, not HDMI.

It could not be otherwise: DAC is "digital to analog conversion". HDMI is digital-to-digital.

If your Denon has 5.1 channel bypass inputs, connect the oppo analog out to them and you'll be listening to the Oppo DACs.
post #11836 of 16362
Dear Bill and Bob

Thank you for your quick responses.

I will need to query the Denon 2313 forum about 5.1 channel bypass. I believe that means the 103 would send an analog 5.1 signal through the AVR to my speakers without a lot of signal processing except for volume....

Otherwise any suggestions for substitute AVRs with Sabre d/a processors? Or do you know of AVRs which definitely do 5.1 analog pass through?

Thanks again.

That makes no sense. There's got to be something else going on here. Contact Oppo and work out the details directly with them.

In addition to the other replies, it should be noted that the BDP-103 doesn't have SABRE DAC's - those are in the BDP-105.

3D Connectivity

I've been living with the Aerial Acoustics 10ts, 5bs and a CC3 for a long time now. Just installed two SR3s to the rear sides and moved the 5bs to the back of the room to create a 7.1 system. All are powered by 3 Aragon amps. Finished the install yesterday so really haven't had a chance to put everything through its paces.

New to the system was Panasonics ZT65" monitor and the Oppo 103 Blu Ray player. For some reason, with a 3D disc in the Oppo I am still getting a message saying the monitor is not getting the signal from the Oppo that there is a 3D connectivity.

Any suggestions?
Steve

Whoops!

I guess I need to upgrade and THEN figure out how to do this.

Thanks for all the responses anyway

The one thing you did not mention is what are you running the Oppo through or are you running directly from the 103 to the Panasonic? If running through a receiver/processor, it must be HDMI 1.4 compatible, also.

Sent my 103 in for repair 4pm Monday, got it back 11am Friday!. It was the loader, which they replaced. I sent it in using a generic box I had laying around and some padding from another device. Came back looking like a new 103, in an Oppo bag in a 103 box. Thought they gave me a replacement until I read the repair sheet.

Anyone who thinks these devices are overpriced should factor in support and repair as part of the price. Mine broke on a weekend, I emailed Oppo support on a Saturday, got a response the same day, answered more questions early Sunday, support sent me a pre-paid packing slip and instructions later the same day (Sunday), and I shipped it the next day. And once Oppo got it, it was in the shop for less than five hours before it was sent out for (pre-paid) return shipping. I had a Sony device break, I had to traipse all over South San Francisco (lived in NorCal then, and NOT in South SF!!!) to deliver it to a repair place, go home, wait, wait, wait, and then go back and pick it up.

I got my 83 pre-release and it's still going strong. This is the first and only issue I've had with the 103, after nearly a year of heavy use. Build quality seems really good. Things do break once in a while, but the Oppos don't seem to be fragile or finicky. I'll certainly buy another one when my 83 finally wears out.

+1

I had some issues with a 83. I also had a quick turn around as well. I do agree with you about that factor.

I suddenly have a problem with a crackley, staticky noise (maybe a couple of pops per second, irregular, with different pitches) whenever the Oppo is on (menus & shows). I don't get it with other devices connected through my sound system. Nothing has changed with my system or connections.

Any ideas? Sorry if this is old hat, but my search-fu is weak and I couldn't find anything.

If you are watching/listening-to the oppo at the time, first suggestion is to try a different hdmi cable. If that doesn't work, try a different hdmi input on your receiver/pre-pro.

Sorry, I was unclear...I meant the noise was there whenever I was watching the Oppo, whether there was any sound or not...even if I was just in the menus.

Oddly, after your post I went to check the cables and the noise had stopped, even though I hadn't turned anything on or off in the interim. I guess the AV gods are fickle and capricious.

They sure do give us great stuff, though!

EQUIPMENT:

Sony 60NX720 TV

Parasound Halo C-2 processor
Parasound A-51 amp

DirecTV H24-700

OPPO BDP-103
Sonos Zoneplayer 90
AppleTV

B&W 805 Diamond left/right
Dunlavy SC-1 Center - to be replaced with a B&W HTM4 Diamond shortly
Canton Karat 920 Left and Right Surround
Velodyne FSR-18 subwoofer

Harmony Touch remote
Plateau SR-V cabinet

The HALO C-2 does not have HDMI switching and I currently run all video signals directly to the SONY and all audio signals (except the OPPO) digitally to the C-2 processor. The C-2 then feeds to the A-51 and from there to the speakers...

The OPPO is connected to the HALO C-2 via the analog 5.1 connection for audio from Blu-ray, CD, and apps.

Would I get a better picture by running the video HDMI from the DirecTV receiver first to OPPO and then using the HDMI1 connection (as I now do) to the Sony TV? Is there any negatives doing it this way? And will the audio work ok via the 5.1 output in conjunction with the HDMI1 video output as this is not exactly like the conventional dual HDMI connection recommended by OPPO?

That's the way I have my OPPO hooked up. PQ will improve going through the OPPO. Where is your HDMI 2 Output going from the OPPO?

Then you should be good to go with that way of hooking up the OPPO.
