post #13891 of 16359

Hi,

 

Thanks for the replies. I am going though the 'Network' icon in the main menu to get to the files on my NAS. If I try the 'Movie' path, it does not even see the NAS. The strange thing is that going through the 'Network' icon, I t can see the folder structure and if the media file is a .avi it will detect and play it. However, if it is anything else, the file will not even show up (.mp4, .mkv).

 

I am using a Seagate Black Armour NAS that was purchased several years back. I am not sure if it has any setting for being an SMB or DLNA server. Would this effect if the BDP-103 can see the other files? I thought that if it can see and play the .avi files it should be ok?

 

Thanks for the help.

The Picture, Music and Movie icons on the player Home screen are for local files only. They do not see any network sources. You must use the Network icon for that.

The Network function on the player sees two types of servers: DLNA (which is specifically for A/V) and SMB (which is a general purpose network file system). It is very common for NAS products to offer both.

If you are using DLNA there may be some settings in the server that have to be tweaked so that it offers certain file types. That would be rare on SMB, though.

First, just to eliminate file issues from the diagnosis, you should copy some sample files onto local storage (like a USB stick or optical disc), mount that in the player and verify that the player can see them via the Movie icon on the Home screen.

The lipsync compensation feature was added during 2013 as part of ongoing firmware updates by Oppo. It wasn't in the original user manual PDF and it doesn't seem they've gotten around to doing a PDF update yet.

But they did describe it in their "release notes" for the 50-0422 firmware release back on May 2, 2013. The initial adjustment range was +/- 100ms, but more recently it has been widened to +/- 200ms.

"You can compensate for lipsync problems in "Setup Menu"->"Audio Processing" -> "A/V Sync", and the delayed time will be applied to all output terminals including digital HDMI 1 and 2, Coaxial, Optical, and analog 7.1 outputs. This applies to all inputs, including discs played on the 103 as well for incoming external HDMI source."

You can adjust +/- 200ms, so just play with it to see what direction and magnitude is right to correct your current problem. Don't forget, this won't apply to everything you watch, so don't think of it as a "set it and forget it" adjustment. It is only to be used if you actually need to compensate for a lipsync issue you're experiencing with whatever source you're watching at that moment.

For STEREO Netflix programs, you could enable DTS Neo:6 in the OPPO to get 5.1 output. Do that in Setup before you launch Netflix, as the app provided by Netflix seizes control of the user interface and won't let you access the Setup menu while Netflix is running. But again, I strongly recommend you leave DTS Neo:6 Mode OFF except when you actually want to use it. Otherwise it will reduce the quality of audiophile quality audio tracks (sampling rates above 48KHz).
--Bob

I could think of one reason why you'd want to use DTS Neo:6 for non-analog output purposes, and that's if you're using a Sherwood R-972 as a pre/pro:). That's the quirky, now discontinued receiver with the only economical implementation of Trinnov for normal (vs. rich guy) humans, where there's some codec delay issues on Bitstream processing.

If you could have applied apply DTS Neo:6 to a CD on a 2.0 signal, you could convert the output to DTS Neo:6 in 5.1 format, output as LPCM via HDMI, and then the Sherwood doesn't have to do anything to convert the signal to surround sound. You could even have an unused video output (call it Video 3) which would be just for music converted from 2.0 to 5//1, and apply a different Trinnov setting to it vs. movies. And if you're picky enough, non-HD TV vs. HD sources.

Hello, I recently managed to foul up an attempt to purchase an oppo 103 on their site, and I'm looking for advice as googling was no help.  i also phoned and emailed but they are closed for the night.

 

Early this morning I went through the process of ordering  a 103 using Paypal.  When I was sent the paypal page and signed in, i thought I'd think about it, so never clicked on the paypal purchase button.  Later in the day I made up my mind, and repeated the process after checking the shopping cart at Oppo and seeing it was empty(also never got an email confirming purchase from them).  Hit the purchase button on Paypal and quickly was sent an email from paypal confirming a purchase.  

 

About an hour later, still not email receipt/confirmation from Oppo, so followed up with the purchase ID # from Paypal, and it says my purchase is unconfirmed.  Emailed Oppo and they quickly respond saying they haven't received payment yet, and I should retry ordering on their site.   I suspect when I ordered it the first time without sending payment, and then ordered it again and attempted to pay, somehow I fouled things up.

 

Any thoughts from the brain trust would be appreciated!

[apologies if asked and answered, I didn't find any matching mentions in a cursory search]

 

Long time Oppo fan but I seem to have a non-trivial regression from my BDP-83 to the 103.

 

I'm experiencing significant sound sync issues with playback from the BDP-103, but not from any other media sources routing through my receiver. The offset seems to be fairly variable, going between +10 and +30 ms (though mostly consistent within a given movie). Issue has been across firmware updates (on most recent) and seems to be unaffected by whether any audio (or video) processing is enabled on the Oppo. The other related devices are a Onkyo TX-NR929 and Panasonic TC-P65ZT60. Input into the receiver from a Roku, Chromecast or Xbox360 seems to be properly matched). I can post any pertinent settings if helpful...

 

1. Anyone else experiencing such issues?

2. Thoughts on potential workarounds? (note that the audio sync setting is ridiculously annoying, it's only got 10ms granularity when 5ms is clearly perceptible and the menu covers the whole screen while being set, making it very difficult to find the right value)

3. How likely is this to be faulty hardware? I've got a support request out to Oppo it's always helpful to have corroboration.

 

Thanks in advance! Any suggestions welcome.

5ms is the delay that you'd experience standing approximately 5 1/2 feet from a person when they are speaking. 10ms is the delay that you'd experience at approximately 11 feet. 15ms @ approximately 17 feet, and so on. Most people don't perceive those delays as being abnormal, nor perceive any difference between them. Audio leading what we see is usually more perceptible as being abnormal because it doesn't occur in nature. ATSC considers 15ms lead and 45 ms lag to be acceptable limits for TV broadcasting. I believe that typically the complaints of sometimes perfect, sometimes out A/V sync are often a result of the base synchronization already being off, and then the small variances in programming material sometimes cause something to be be outside of the range of normal perception. Most of the material is out of sync, but it is still within the limits that our perception considers normal, so it appears to be perfectly synced. I also believe that different people have different ranges of normal perception. However, I believe if the audio delay is set accurately (which requires a test pattern and equipment) then the vast majority of material will be within the range of normal perception for most people. I did test my Oppo BDP-103 using the test pattern on Spears & Munsil, and used an iPhone App called "Catchin' Sync" to measure the difference between audio and video timing. There is professional equipment that is better for the job and easier to use, but vastly more expensive. Since setting an 85ms delay on my AVR for the BDP-103 based on these measurements, I've not experienced any apparent a/v mis-synchronization on any discs played on it, nor on any of the few .mkv files I've played.

Consequently, the 85ms delay is very close to 83.42ms which is exactly 2 frames at 23.976 fps which is the frame rate of the test pattern. Assuming that the delay at 29.97 fps is also 2 frames, then the 85ms delay places the audio 18.267ms behind the video which is very near the center of the ATSC's acceptable range for video.

You may have made an oopsy, but something else could have gone wrong too, stuff happens...
I would advise just having some patience, and wait until tomorrow and see how things progress.
Email or phone Oppo tomorrow and see if the order has still not gone though.
If they want you to re-order, then just make sure they have your name and number and can make sure there isn't an accidental double order.
post #13900 of 16359

Thanks, patience seems the best course of action at this point.  I think I remember doing this type of thing before and getting hung up, I blame my laptop!

Problem with PGS subtitles on OPPO-103

Hello,

I downloaded the latest firmware on my OPPO-103. I tried the new feature: PGS displayed when they are included in MKV files. It works on local storage device, but not from my Synology NAS (DSM 4.0) with Linux OS (SMB).
I contacted the OPPO support and they told me that it works on Windows 7 DLNA server. So I am wondering what is wrong with my DS411j. Why other type of subtitles are shown but not PGS ? Has someone with the same configuration as mine, manage to display these PGS subtitles ? Is there a configuration file to modify on my NAS ?
Thanks
post #13903 of 16359
Greetings & my apologies if I misstep here as I'm still fairly new in returning to the 'A/V World' & though I follow several threads here at AVS . . . I haven't made to many posts . . . (not much to contribute I'm afraid, only questions) . . . which brings me to this one:

I was reading the "Unofficial Oppo BDP-103 FAQ: Section: How Does Dual HDMI Output Work" & I found it particularly confusing regarding which outputs what (w/ regards to best Audio/Video Quality) . . . here's the excerpt I'm referring to:

"If HDMI1 is connected to a display and HDMI2 is connected to an AVR, the Split A/V mode should be selected.

HDMI1 is the primary video port and HDMI2 is the primary audio port.

HDMI1 outputs video at the highest possible resolution and mutes audio. (Or: HDMI1 will always have the best video but may not have audio in certain cases, such as when HDMI2 is doing HD audio bitstreaming).

HDMI2 outputs video at a resolution that can sufficiently carry the best audio. It will always have audio but video is delivered on a "best effort" basis -- in some cases (such as when 3D is sent over HDMI1 but the HDMI2 device does not support 3D), a black screen will be sent to HDMI2."

So, my question: "if I want to get the best SQ output of a given SACD, then should I be listening to those SACDs utilizing the HDMI2 Port (while watching all my BD via the HDMI1 port) . . .

My apologies for the newbie question here . . . but if I'm going to have an OPPO & pay the premium on the SACDS . . . then just want to make certain that I'm setting it up properly . . .

My thanks in advance to anyone willing to lend me their time & expertise . . .

Cheers,

Shek

I will check it again later today, but I thought it worked over SMB. I'll check DLNA, too.

The only advantage to playing an SACD through the HDMI2 port is that it can be sent as a DSD signal instead of PCM. This probably makes no difference because your AVR is going to turn that DSD signal into PCM before converting it to analog. If you send the SACD signal through HDMI1, the Oppo converts that DSD signal to PCM before it gets sent to the HDMI1 port.

On my system (Denon 4310, B&W 704 speakers), I couldn't hear any advantage to sending the signal as DSD, and it also lost my ability to use the Audyssey room correction feature.

Hello,


Users on a swedish forum are reporting that issues still exist for mkv files encoded at 720p@23.976. These are still being played back at 59.94Hz, not switching properly to 24p despite using the latest firmware.

At the same time, mkv files encoded at 1080p@23.976 are outputed correctly at 24p. Somehow, the firmware only solved this issue for 1080p files.


Is Oppo aware of this issue? Just a friendly heads up from sweden.

I believe that has always been the case. 720p files have always been converted to 60hz. Did you see otherwise in the past?

Shek,

The one significant difference between HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 on the BDP-103 when it comes to DSD audio from SACDs is that HDMI 1 cannot output DSD (HDMI 1 on the BDP-103D can). So with the HDMI 1 output, DSD from SACDs will always be converted to PCM before being output. With HDMI 2 you have the option of outputting DSD, or converting it to PCM before output. Some AVRs do not accept DSD over HDMI. Most of the AVRs that do accept DSD over HDMI convert it to PCM anyway. Only a very few actually decode the DSD directly to analog without going to PCM first. Typically with DSD directly to analog there is no processing of the signal prior to output, meaning no room correction, phase correction, channel balance, bass management, etc. since those DSP processes are performed in the PCM domain.

As far as which gives you the best audio, that is debatable, and may depend considerably upon the audio equipment you have connected to the BDP-103. However if you want the option of delivering the DSD stream directly to your AVR, then HDMI 2 is definitely the best choice.

Also if you use the split a/v feature, you will be utilizing the HDMI 2 port for all audio to your AVR, including BD, but you will be watching the video from the BD via the HDMI 1 port. I do use the split a/v setup as I've found it gives me more options and flexibility in my own setup, which I won't go into here, but many here use HDMI 1 for everything. Others here prefer using HDMI 2 for everything. As far as audio, the inability of HDMI 1 to output DSD is the only difference between any of the HDMI connection options.

post #13911 of 16359
I am not technical so all this talk about DSD and PCM is very interesting..

I am using hdmi1 for my oppo.

my receiver is NAD T-777.

everything looks and sounds great. I had to do some minor tweaks on the lip sync on the oppo thou. Had to move it to 20ms to have the lip sync be exact.

on the NAD, I do see PCM on the display screen.

Question.. Should I move the hdmi cable from hdmi 1 to hdmi 2 on the oppo or just leave it the way it is?

Well, no. I just supposed that a videophile player like the Oppo did this correctly somewhere in the past. Seems like such a strange issue.


Just because the mkv file is encoded as 720p, it should still be outputed as 23.976Hz given that it is a movie, right?


Or are you telling me that Oppo will never fix this?

1280x720@23.976/24.000 files are indeed output at 60Hz for all container types. Which is a bit of a shame, given it's supported within the EDID spec. Thankfully 1280x720@25.000/50.000 files are correctly output at 50Hz now...

Well, never say never. I can't speak for OPPO and you should communicate your needs to them. They do listen.

However, I can't see that 720 @ 24 is defined anywhere in the HDMI specs. See the various lists here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncompressed_video

Just because you can put something in a media file container doesn't mean the HDMI transmitter chips can accept it as is. Only certain combinations of resolution and frame rate are allowed.

I need to clarify something. According to the users at the swedish forum, the Oppo player is set for 1080p output with auto-switching engaged. Playing a 1080p encoded mkv file, the movie is correctly outputted as 23.976Hz. The swtiching works.

However, with the same setup, playing a 720p encoded mkv file, the switching is never engaged from 1080p@60Hz to 1080p@23.976Hz. Just becasue the file is encoded at 720p, the switch does not happen.

The Oppo player is always in 1080p output mode.

You're correct, that is the way it works. Frame rate is not retained for that upscaling.

Thanks for the detailed response. However, the root issue is here the degree of variance. At ~0.89571 ms delay per foot, I'm seeing a variance of ~34 feet between discs (and sometimes within a given disc, though I can't recall that happening since the last firmware update). As I've played nearly all of this media via my BDP-83 and noted no skew, and no other media sources exhibit this behavior. The receiver is properly calibrated for my distance from the center channel (only about 8 feet) so I _should_ have a av sync of 0 ms on the BDP.

 

With regards to re-calibration, I do have the most recent Spears & Munsil disc, however I'm an Android user (and note negative reviews of the iphone app due to frame rate issues). Are you aware of any hardware that's "relatively" affordable to better accomplish the offset tests? I'd certainly spring for $250 but products I see recommended elsewhere seem to be 500 and up (http://www.pharoahaudio.com/syncheckproducthomepage.html)

Had sent Oppo a number of wav rips which would lock up starting at the previous beta and also with the official firmware. Installed the new beta last night and many of the previous problems work, but some of the wav's still lock. Will resend some of these different ones along with the same flac's which to not show the meta picture of the cover. Again, most flac's and mp3's the meta works fine. These are all attached directly to my 103 with thumb drive and/or external powered HDD.

Anyone having any problem with wav's with this new beta? Am very appreciative they are finding whatever causes these lockups because you have to go through a complete power down and wait for it to reconnect and play until it finds another file which locks.

I've been trying without success to get a response from Oppo today, in regards to a 103 purchase I made that paypal says was completed, but Oppo says they never received payment.  Does anyone know if Oppo answers emails on a saturday?  Can they be reached by phone on a saturday?

^ Email is your best bet. Tech Support monitors email on weekends -- even Holiday weekends. However I'm not sure they will be able to resolve a billing/payment issue like this before Monday. Keep in mind they are in California so allow for the time zone.
