High failure rate? How many have you had?

Nothing in this world is produced that is 100% perfect all of the time. There are some lemons out there. However, we don't hear of OPPO's being bad from the factory much on this thread, or the other OPPO threads.

OPPO has great customer service and they will take care of you.

It a seagate 4tb drive with 1 tb of movies in the NTFS formmated drive.. recently I added more files to the 4tb drive and poof, some movies display, some load 100% and plays the movies and some goes to 50% loading and all I get is audio and no video.. at first I thought it was the hard drive.. then I copied the movies files to a thumb drive, some played and some did the exact same thing, loaded 50% and no video, only audio.. are all my files corrupt? it can't be, they play fine when I attach the drive to my PC Anyone experience this? I did a factory reset and still the same issues.. Do I need to contact and return this unit?

99% of the time this behavior can be attributed to the actual files themselves and NOT the player. I too have a usb 4tb hd which contains digital movie files (mkv, avi, mp4) and when the hd is attached to my Sony bluray player (S790), 20% of my files exhibit the exact same behavior you're describing. However, when the hd is attached to the oppo, 100% of my files is playable with no problems. Apparently, when the digital file is encoded with a codec (video and/or audio) that is incompatible with the player's decoder (any blu ray player is basically a computer with an optical drive) then you're gonna have playability problems.

As for your Avengers disc's strange behavior (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't), it sounds more like there may be a problem with your player's optical drive system (dirty or an actual malfunction) which means it requires servicing. Good luck mate!smile.gif

Thanks, been on email Oppo support for the last 5 hours.. tired all the setting as they requested.. and did not work. Finally tried all video resolution options. all video both blu-ray and Hare drive only works in 720p mode. No video in source direct auto or 1080p. I tried even factory reset again. And I only see video on the 720p format. All the connection are correct. It seems to be a switching issue in the oppo unit. 720p both the hard drive and dvd's work. But when I switch to auto or 1080p or so ice direct the screen is blank.

in 720p mode the hard drive movie load 100% .. these are 1080p blu ray rips i did my self.. they worked 100& before without any issues..

There have been a number of discussions about Netflix Streaming Quality on the OPPO 10x.

Some people have observed better quality on other devices at essentially the same time as receiving poorer quality streams using the Netflix APP on the OPPO.

There has been speculation that perhaps Netflix might be "throttling" bandwidth for a certain set of devices to conserve bandwidth for "more popular" devices.

I have been thinking about the issue for quite awhile and have come to the following conclusions.

The Netflix APP has a number of complex issues that it must be able to deal with. The most important is the ability to adjust to bandwidth availability on a moment to moment basis. The primary goal, I would imagine, is to provide a continuous viewing experience without the need to rebuffer.

The word rebuffer above got me to thinking about the various devices that support Netflix and the Netflix APPs that run on them.

There are a number of generations of devices as well as Netflix APPs that run on them. If we limit our investigation to current devices and APPs it might simplify things.

What might be different between current devices that might affect stream quality during periods of widely fluctuating bandwidth that would allow some devices to maintain a high quality stream while other devices were receiving degraded streams?

My thoughts are the size of the buffer provided to the Netflix APP. The larger the buffer the more likely the device will be able to sustain a high quality stream during peak usage periods.

The next question is, who decides how large the buffer will be? Is this something that the hardware manufacturer can specify or is it some magical formula used by Neflix based on the memory size specification that the Manufacturer has provided to Netflix.

OPPO has 1GB Flash memory available. Is this fast enough for use as a Netflix buffer?

Does OPPO get to specify the Netflix buffer size and location when a new Firmware release is prepared?

The solution may be in hand when the information above is considered.

From the above it would be fair to say that I do not believe that Netflix is throttling streams to OPPO devices or Those of any other manufacturer. The difference is in the way the APPs are implemented with differing buffer sizes the most likely cause.

Hi all,

I have read most of these 500 plus pages and remember seeing something about sharing with windows 7. So I apologize if this exact thing has been brought up. I could not see it in the FAQ.

I recently bought a new Windows 7 PC and am having problems sharing the media on it to the Oppo 103. I keep getting the username and password screen and I have no idea what username and password I should be using.

I have tried so many different sharing options and none have worked. Thanks for any help that anybody can give.

If 720 is working and not 1080 I would suspect you have a marginal cabling issue. Check your connections and if you haven't already plug the Oppo directly into your display. Do you have any spare cables? Also does 480 work?

You're starting here, right? http://www.multi-region.net/oppo_bdp-83

The link is to an ISO file. When you download it, don't open it, just burn it to a CD-R as a disc image.

OPPO provides this guide for burning an ISO CD on Max OS X: http://download.oppodigital.com/BDP93/OPPO_BDP_OSX_CD_FIRMWARE_BURNING_GUIDE_v1.1.pdf

This is for their own player firmware, but the procedure is the same for any ISO file. Skip down to the part where it describes "Disk Utility".

Has anybody played music from an Android device through the Oppo? Should this work or not?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

I used a USB cable, the Oppo found something and got one step into the directory tree, showed three folders: Pictures, Music and Video. But by clicking on the folders it was stuck forever.

Took your advice, pin pointed the problem.. it's the "Darbee" unplugged it rerouted the wire o directly go to the projector and after 2 minutes ( yes that long lag for Yamaha receiver to recognize the Oppo signal) and right now I have it on auto , 1080p and it works. so far..

It's much the same with 'pure interlaced' MPEG-4 SP/ASP files, 'pure interlaced' MPEG-4 AVC files and 'pure interlaced' WMV9/VC-1 files...
I've just noticed something else regarding the playback of 720x576 (PAL D1 sized) sources. When played via the Oppo, I'm unable to select the 'just scan' option on my TV. Playback of 720x480 works fine...

That can't be a player issue, can it? Other sources would do the same?

There's a couple ways to skin this cat. Most devices have some sort of DNLA option, like Samsung's phones and tabs do. You'd need wireless networking for the device, then the player should pick that up as a DNLA server.
To connect a device to the Oppo by USB, it has to present itself as a mass storage device. Some do and some don't. Needless to say, the files on the device must be in a supported format.

Having a delay on sysnc with receiver issue it maybe the cable's I used the high speed cables that oppo supplied in the box.. Can anyone recommend a decent pair of hdmi 1.4a cables, I'm hoping a decent pair of cable will solve my issue. The projector is connected via monoprice redmere one way hdmi.. issue my be linked between the dvd player and yamaha receiver, I'll dig deeper into the receiver settings, on why there is a delay going on and off to sync up a 1080p signal.

thanks bill..made the iso disc and will put it in the oppo tomorrow and get a region 2 disc to try out..

I've been using a DLNA server (doubletwist/airplay) with my android phones for a while - first an HTC EVO 3D and now with a Samsung S4 sending music to my BDP-83.

It works great, no problem with my wireless router. The 83 lists the device and I can access it the same way as theTwonky server on my NAS. I'd imagine it would work just as well with a 103.

With the EVO, I needed to set the phone to not shut itself off while plugged in, the Samsung doesn't need that.
post #15085 of 16357
I wanted to ask everyone overall, how is this new firmware? I have not updated yet. I have not updated the last 2 actually

My 103 is working fine from what I can see. I mostly use it as a Media Player from external hard drives

the only thing I am waiting for is for them to fix the time stamp problem where the player will remember the total time from one of the files you played earlier and then show that same time for every file you play; only way to correct this is to restart the player

If you don't believe your Oppo player will be improved by future updates and you're happy with the way it is performing (minus the one bug you hope will be resolved in a future update), then by all means stay with the firmware build you have. I have a different approach to downloading "new updates". I look forward to downloading these new, Oppo player updates. For the past year, I have not needed to regress back to an earlier build because the current build was causing me problems. There have been a lot of new fixes in the past few builds that I'm glad were implemented...I will continue to upload new firmware for my blu-ray/media player as they are released by Oppo.

As has been answered again and again:
The simplest way to share files from your PC is OShare. Google it. It "just works", you'll see.

I have been enjoying my Oppo BDP-103 for well over a year and I am happy with it, but over the past couple of months I've had issues with playing SACDs - no sound at all. I tried different settings like PCM or Bitstream or Auto on the Audio playback, but to no avail. FYI, my firmware is up-to-date and I have zero issues playing DVDs or Blu-Ray discs. Any suggestions from other people out there?

Thank you.

I thought I would post on this thread to. I have a oppo BDP-103 and a PN60F8500. F8500 has about 100 hours on it and the 103 is two weeks old. After a long day watching gold yesterday I fired up the oppo and VUDO to watch all is lost. I have HDMI 1 just video to the F8500 and HDMI 2 to 1 week old Yamaha RX-V375 receiver that powers my energy speakers. So last night I notice the black bars were not as black and when I got close to the screen I could see red and green flickers in each individual pixel. Here is a photo. Does anyone have any idea if what this is?

Thank you hernau. I solved it meanwhile by installing a free DLNA server from GooglePlay on the Android device. This sees the Oppo as a media render and plays music flawlessly. Perfect!

Thank you to all of your for your help.
