Thread Starter 
Any DLNA server should offer the same functionality. I just like oShare since it has a very small memory footprint and does nothing else other than DLNA DMP without any transcoding.

Is there any consensus as to whether or not the Darbee version is worth the extra $100? I would think I would normally want the picture to be faithful to the original, but I would maybe like using the darbee processor for SD content. Also, I think I read in this thread that you can't defeat some noise reduction in the regular 103, but can in the darbee version?

I did, but hearing people's opinions only in that one will skew it towards buying it, since they did. I am leaning towards it though.

Hi!

i just bought a OPPO 103 and I'm wondering about four things hope someone can help me.

 

1. I'm using HDMI 1 connected to my Processor and i have the A/V setting set to split and i read that with that setting the OPPO would send audio to HDMI 1 and video to HDMI 2 so why do i get both audio AND video when connected to my processor with HDMI 1?

 

2.i have SMB,DLNA and NFS sharing activated on my synology NAS and everything works fine when streaming REMUX movies throughout NFS(the fastest) and DLNA….but with SMB i doesn't work at all all movies stutters so so badly! the jelly fish test file 20mbit doesn't work at all!! but on NFS the 90mbit clip works without issue……..the question that i have is when i log in to the iPad app oppo hd control why is the only sharing i see is SMB? why can't i choose DLNA or NFS on the iPad app?

 

3.when i listen to music on the iPad app throught SMB the tracks doesn't come in order... when a track is done it jumps to a whole different track than the one thats next…..why is that?

 

4.if i only watch 1080/24p movies…shouldn't i choose source direct in the settings? if not why is that?

 

thanks someone for answering!

 

Best regards/Mike

Only thing I see from your 1st question is that you have it backwards in that in split mode HMDI 1 sends VIDEO only & HDMI 2 sends Audio. I don't understand why you're getting AUDIO over HDMI 1 in split mode though....
post #12757 of 16442
what's the point of splitting them anyway? I've wondered about that before, as to whether or not there would be much advantage, especially in my case where I will be using a receiver as a switcher. What I wish is that oppo players had a good way of fixing audio sync issues. My setup, like most, only lets you delay the AUDIO, not the video, and for some reason both for Comcast and when I sued directv, the AUDIO is what was always coming late, not the video, so I can do nothing about it since I need the audio coming earlier rather than later. If something such as an oppo player would have a good feature for delaying either one however much time, it would finally fix this BS I have to see with their lips being all fof.

The point for using the split feature is to take advantage of the high quality Marvell video processor the OPPO has built in. By feeding the video signal directly to a receiver you won't be taking advantage of Marvell's video processing as the receiver will now be outputting the video to your display using it's own built in video processing. Unless of course the receiver has a better video processor than the Marvell, it's the choice of many a/v enthusiasts to allow the OPPO to do the video processing.

As far as your sync issues, there has to be something in your "chain" that is the culprit as there are quite a few OPPO 103 owners here & not too many have suffered from sync issues.

As i understand it, the main reason for splitting is if you have a 3D display, but your receiver can't handle the 3D HDMI signal. Out of the Oppo, HDMI #1 goes to the display with a 3D stream, while HDMI #2 takes audio in a 2D stream to the receiver.

If you only are using the HDMI 1 output, Split A/V is not activated even if it is selected. Both HDMI outputs must be connected to active HDMI devices in order for the Split A/V function to activate. Otherwise see below.

Understanding Split A/V Mode Article ID: 34

"HDMI 1 Out will output video only, so you will need to ensure that your AV receiver / processor is turned on in order to get any audio. When Split A/V mode is enabled, there will be no audio output to your display via HDMI, so you will not be able to use your display's speakers." This statement may not be completely correct. Split A/V only activates when both HDMI outputs are connected to active HDMI devices. Turning off your AVR connected to HDMI 2 will likely result in the Split A/V mode being deactivated and both audio and video being delivered to your television by HDMI 1 (unless your AVR keeps it's HMDI inputs hot when it is off or in standby).

"Note: While HDMI 1 will only output video while Split A/V mode is active, HDMI 2 will output both an audio and video signal."

Mike,

Even with 1080/24p movies on Blu-ray, many of the menus, special features, intros, etc. will not be in 1080/24p (or 60p). These will have to be converted to 1080p (24 or 60, assuming your TV is 1080p) somewhere in the chain in order to be viewed on your TV. If your outboard processor or TV is better at de-interlacing and scaling than the Oppo (unlikely), then source direct would be the appropriate setting, as it will allow the outboard processor, or your TV to do those jobs. I say unlikely, because I believe the Oppo is the only device currently available that incorporates non-ringing scaling. As far as the 1080p material itself, there should be no difference between setting the output to 1080p or Source Direct, as long as you haven't set any other enhancements in the picture adjustments on the Oppo.

^ Also, using Source Direct means foregoing some of the convenience features available in the player -- things like Zoom modes which can't function when you select Source Direct. Or for the new, 103D player, using Source Direct means no Darbee.

Generally speaking, most folks will be happiest setting the player at explicit 1080p output (not AUTO and not Source Direct), with the 1080p/24 Output setting set to AUTO if their AVR and Display accept 1080p/24 and "do the right thing" with it.

Hi bob!

 

Could you answer these questions?

 

2.i have SMB,DLNA and NFS sharing activated on my synology NAS and everything works fine when streaming REMUX movies throughout NFS(the fastest) and DLNA….but with SMB i doesn't work at all all movies stutters so so badly! the jelly fish test file 20mbit doesn't work at all!! but on NFS the 90mbit clip works without issue……..the question that i have is when i log in to the iPad app oppo hd control why is the only sharing i see is SMB? why can't i choose DLNA or NFS on the iPad app?

3.when i listen to music on the iPad app throught SMB the tracks doesn't come in order... when a track is done it jumps to a whole different track than the one thats next…..why is that?

 

Thanks in advance!

post #12765 of 16442
^ For file sorting for SMB playback, use the latest, 0808B Public Beta firmware. Download it from the OPPO site for install via a USB stick:

http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-103/BDP103-firmware-60-0808B.aspx

Don't forget to do a Reset after the install. The Recommended Reset offered on first power up after the install is all you need.



The iPad app is a work in progress. I don't believe DLNA support is included yet. (I don't use that app, so I'm not sure about that.) SMB and DLNA are the only two choices -- not NFS.

To follow up on this, I installed the minidlna media server and using it the Oppo indexed the files MUCH faster than with mediatomb. It was on the order of a minute to complete the indexing. So it would seem that the main problem was with mediatomb.

However, it's still too bad that the Oppo doesn't work like my CX-A5000 preamp. With it there's no visible indexing going on at all. I suspect that it's being done incrementally in the background. It would be nice to not have to wait at all and be able to get on with playing the music. smile.gif

1.Yes I have and they all seem to work fine. I see others have had the problem with this is the end. I think there might be something funky with the way Sony is encoding their 4k remasters. I haven't tried HDMI 1 just because I don't like the filtering. haven't tried different cables or receiver either but all my other discs are playing fine.

2.Thank you for clearing all of that fine. Although what do you mean by using HDMI 2 I shouldn't see a difference? Would I see a difference with HDMI 1? Why?

3.Ok I will and get that disc soon. Why are there 4 different options of they are all the same?

Keep in mind im really stupid, thanks.

1. I suggest you contact Oppo customer support about this. They may have some recommendations. Sony is encoding the 4k remasters with xvColor. Since you are only experiencing this issue with Sony 4k remasters I suppose it is possible that your projector, or something in the chain is not playing well with the xvColor data. Switching to RGB output is apparently eliminating the offending data.

2. One of the features of the Marvell QDEO processing is "Bit Resolution Expansion" or "QDEO True Color Processing". What it does is depicted in figures 10 and 11 of the Qdeo Extended Technology Brief. You would only see this difference (as shown between the two figures) on HDMI 1, as the Marvell QDEO processing is not applied to HDMI 2.

3. Because different TVs handle the options differently. It's a matter of feeding your TV what it likes best. Each TV is different so you have to test to see which works best with your particular TV. Sometimes different settings on the TV can change which is best too. On my TV YCbCr 4:4:4 works best, but only if I have game/text mode on my TV turned on.

I just discovered tonight that switching HDMI Audio to LPCM completely eliminates the remaining audio muting at the beginning of playback that I had been experiencing, and previously reported in this thread. I've been experiencing that issue with Blu-ray through 2 BD players (including the BDP-103) and two AVRs. Since bringing the issue to the attention of Oppo the frequency and duration of this issue has been significantly improved with each firmware update. I had tried LPCM HDMI audio with previous firmware on the Oppo and still experienced the audio muting. Since updating to the latest beta firmware for the Oppo, I had been avoiding using LCPM HDMI Audio to my AVR, primarily because I like to see it display which codec (DD or DTS) that it is receiving when the Oppo is set to bitstream output. Now that the muting issue is clearly the result of the receiver waiting to verify which codec it is receiving, and knowing that there are a few discs that cause audio instability when HDMI bitstream audio is output to the AVR, I'll probably be leaving the Oppo set for LPCM output. The Oppo apparently does a better job of handling the Dolby TrueHD codec than my AVR does.

Hi!

 

Can anybody confirm this?

 

using a Emotiva UMC-200 processor and don't think it does anything with the picture.

Hi Bob!

 

this was the first thing i did when setting up the player…..in fact if i didn't do the firmware update i wouldn't be able to play music throught the app at all.

 

so the "problem" is still there its like the shuffle button is pushed but it isn't.

Nope. There is no need to use the Split A/V function in order to "take advantage of the high quality Marvell video processor the OPPO has built in".

The purpose of Split A/V is to send the video directly to the TV without going through an AVR or other device. This is helpful if the AVR supports HDMI, but doesn't support 3D. There may be other configuration reasons to do it. Even if your audio pre/pro does have video processing, it can usually be turned off. I have mine set up with Split A/V out of personal preference, but my system would work just fine using a single HDMI cable to the AVR, and a single HDMI cable from it to the TV. That would be taking full advantage of the Marvell QDEO processor. In fact, I can always switch my TV over the HDMI input from my AVR and watch the output from the Oppo's HDMI 2 that way if I want to, and switch back to input directly from the Oppo's HDMI 1 output when I want to watch that.

So no better picture going to tv directly?

^ Not unless there's a bug in your AVR. Again, this assumes you have the OPPO set to do all necessary video processing, so the AVR has no real work to do in that regard.

post #12779 of 16442
I use LPCM on both my 83 and 103, and like the results I get. I was having issues, especially with some 7.1 discs, using bitstream. My 103 goes into my Pioneer 1522 on Direct setting (not Source Direct) and I have the Pioneer set up so that I can choose MCACC-set 5.1, 7.1 with side surrounds or 7.1 with rear surrounds (the latter two are MCACC settings, not physical speaker placement). And, yes, I DO have a true 7.1 setup- the 7.1 settings give me some flexibility getting more sound where I like it on certain discs given my speaker placement/room setup.
post #12780 of 16442
^ Despite my past resistance to it, I'm becoming more and more sold on setting HDMI audio to LPCM and letting the Oppo do the bitstream decoding.
