In no case will you need to run two HDMI cables between the Oppo and the Denon. It's a matter of preference but personally I'd use choice 1 to let the AVR do all the switching so only one cable is connected to the TV. Ymmv.

Thank you.

There should be no noticeable difference between bitstream/pcm so if you plan on playing a lof of MKV's with HD audio, I would leave to PCM which is what I do.

I don't believe this is correct the HDMI inputs do not accept the Hires audio codecs, it does accept hi-res PCM. If his HTPC is decoding and sending out the audio properly then yes he is getting the hi-res audio. Both the Oppo and his receiver will show PCM. I believe you are confusing the OP's original question, he isn't streaming to the Oppo he is inputting via HDMI to the Oppo from his HTPC.

I have read the first post and it appears doable but I just want to check/verify before I take the plunge (prevent a possible return). Will this guy currently play MKV files with HD audio (DTS-HD MA and TrueHD) via a Windows 7 share without issue? Anything to keep in mind... thanks.

Not sure why it wouldn't work with a Samsung, check your cabling? I find the Darbee effect subtle but worth the effort.

It is curious that the issue is with 2 Samsung players I have, but the Darbee works (through 2 different hdmi chains) with my HD DVD, Cable box, and first generation Sony BD player. The basic set ups are players to Pioneer SC25 AVR, 10' high speed hdmi cable to darblet, then 29' hdmi type A out to my RS55 PJ. There is no setting on the Samsungs as far as I can tell that will allow changes to the deep color or 4:4:4.
I'm asking about the OPPO because I was considering upgrading my Samsung anyways, but don't want to pay the extra $ for a player that won't work with my set-up. Plus, I basically use my PJ to watch blu-rays, and apparently the OPPO is great for other things, but the improvement of BD image is not that dramatic.

Just wondering if I will see a noticeable difference or hear a noticeable difference if i go with the Oppo BDP-103. Currently using my PS3 for a blu ray player. That is connected straight to the Pioneer Elite VSX-53 which has the Marvell Qdeo processing. This is all linked to the Panasonic 65VT30. My PS3 is starting to get finicky loading certain Blu ray discs. So is this a viable upgarade?

Currently being the key word. SMB share support is experimental and could possibly disappear in future firmware. Hopefully this won't be the case but those of us who got burnt on the 93 and iso support are justifiably cautious. Just to be clear if it does go away it won't be because of Oppo.

Regardless of the cause, it shouldn't freeze the player.

I did submit the circumstance to Oppo. They suggested power cycling the modem and router, changing IP configuration, etc. While I haven't done this ( as the deactivation trick worked), I haven't had issues with other Internet related apps, such as Pandora or YouTube.

I also mentioned the player freezing up during the loading process with the blank screen.

Hi everybody, I've found a serious bug. On my server( windows) I've created 200 sharings (1 for every briecase, called AVCHD which contains the blu-ray)
OPPO 103 see them only 47.DUNE doesn't have any problem
How can I resolve ?

You should report your results to OPPO.

This is one SMB server with 200 physical directories, or with 200 ISO files mounted loopback?

External Dongle can more easily be upgraded to support
1) 5Ghz WiFi Band not just 2.4GHz (Which potentially has many home nased interference sources like cordless phones, microwave opvens etc)
2) Wifi based on 802.11ac (Routers are already available as are laptops that support 80.11ac connectivity speeds.
3) 802.11an is already on the horizon.

1 GHz Ethernet Interface

1) Not sure how modular the internal ethernet NIC board copper interface of the BDP-103 is but I would have preferred that it was capable of 10/100/1G Speeds not just 10/100. Most of us now should have 1G capable home networks 10/100 is almost completely dead.
2) An optional Fiber optic Ethernet Interface module would be even nicer. (Optical Isolation is wonderful)
post #3703 of 16359
every briefcase is shared singurarly, because I prefer only one list on sceen of every film on the server.
I dont share hard disks because if on screen I see the list of them I dont remember where are the films that I seek.For example :if i share the hard disks I obtain one list of 10 disks, so if I seek Matrix reloaded i cant remember if is on the disk 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 etc...

Most 1G networks have a switch somewhere in them, often it is built into the router. The switch will automatically convert all the data received by the oppo to 1G speeds across the rest of your network.

The Oppo never sends or receives data faster than about 50M, so 100M is plenty - there's no point in having a 1G connector on the Oppo when your network already has a switch that will convert it all for you.

Sorry, I'm not understanding any of that.

What is a briefcase, and what does it mean to share it singularly?

If you need that sort of isolation, you can purchase converter boxes and put one at each end. Almost all installations won't need it, so I can see why Oppo did not include something like that by default.

briefcase is folder or directory
ok i change the question
if i have 10 hard disks (not raid) in my windows server full of blu ray.... how can i obtain a onlyone list of film when i use smb of oppo?
if i share 10 disk i can see on the oppo a list of 10 disk in smb, well i don't see WHERE is the film that i search. i don't remember where are all film
if i share on server the folder that contain the film... i can see not the shared hard disk but the folder film. in this way i don't need remember in whitch hard disk is archived
in this way if i create 200 single folder shared i can choose the film without remember whitch hard drive on server contain the film
post #3708 of 16359
I just received my 103 today and I was curious about the HDMI input.

I currently use an Onkyo 5009 for my

DirecTV HR34
PS3
Blu Ray (being replaced by the 103)
Xbox 360
HTPC

with a single HDMI going to my VT50. The only device I do any video processing with on my Onkyo is the DirecTV HR34.

I am thinking I should take the HR34 ->103->Onkyo and let the 103 do the VP on the HR34. Or should I go, HR34->Onkyo->103->TV?

Does the 103 treat the video processing on the HDMI input and Blu Ray separately? How many different devices can utilize the HDMI input (via switch or AVR) and have independent video processing settings?

Should I consider a different path maybe using both outputs of my Onkyo?

Any advice would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

What is the OPPO question here?

It sounds like you have a Windows device management issue and I'm not sure how to advise you. If the problem is that OPPO is not seeing all 200 of your shared folders, you need to document that and report it to OPPO.

Does Windows allow hard links to folders? If so you could create your own virtual directory of films, like so: Are hard links supported on NTFS volumes?

- Samsung UE46ES8000 (mkv playback via USB)
- Speakers B&W CM8/CMC/CM1/ASW610.
delivered through the Marantz via HDMI,
be noticeable in the quality, on both video and audio aspect, or would Marantz's DACs and other chips be sufficient for the job.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and comments

Dear All, I would really appreciate if you could give me some insight on this..sorry if I am being annoying.

Cheers

There's really no way to predict what results you'll get since it depends on how you have your system calibrated, and your own critical viewing faculties.

But be aware that if you buy direct from the OPPO Digital web site, they offer an easy, 30-day return policy so you can try the player and make your own decision. All you risk is the shipping costs.

Thanks in advance!

Your first cabling choice is likely best (HR34 -> 103 -> Onkyo). But note that to get maximum value from the 103's de-interlacing and upscaling you need to set the HR34 to output the resolution of whatever channel you are watching (480i, 720p, or 1080i).

The 103 does *NOT* do automatic switching of video processing settings. You may very well find that you don't actually NEED any difference in settings, but if you do, the 103 offers 3 sets of Picture Adjustment settings for the HDMI 1 output and another 3 for the HDMI 2 output. Select these using the top (Mode) line of Setup > Video Setup > Picture Adjustment. If you press and hold the Setup button you will get right to the Picture Adjustment sub-menu.

So you can put up to 3 sets of Picture Adjustment settings together and then MANUALLY select between them. But if you go between Blu-ray and HDMI Input playback, the player will continue to use your last choice of Picture Adjustment settings.

I know it's not the hdmi cable and/or the recommended setup because it's working with standard BD's. Kind of at a loss as to what to do next? I shouldn't have to plug/unplug or swap out the hdmi cables because it works...just not for 3d BD's and streaming content...frustrating!

My setup is as follows:

Oppo HDMI 1 to Sharp tv
Oppo HDMI 2 to Pioneer SC-07 AVR

I also have a PS3, 360 and Wii U each hooked up with HDMI to the SC-07.

Any suggestion? Any known handshake issues with Oppo and Pioneer Elite AVR?

Are you using the latest firmware? Check Setup > Device Setup > Firmware Information. Your "Main" firmware version number should end 1211.

For the issue with 3D and audio try setting Blank HDMI 2 in the 3D Settings (latest firmware).

I broke out my old trusty Panasonic BD30 and it played the disc without any issues. I'll contact Oppo and let them know about this issue.

Is the problem repeatable? At the same time code?

When I hit info on the Oppo it shows LPCM 48khz 7.1 and on another thread someone said that the Oppo's HDMI in can not bitstream HD audio and here is what the actual Oppo site shows that the HDMI in can do
Quote:
HDMI Audio: Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, AAC, up to 5.1ch/192kHz or 7.1ch/96kHz PCM.

Is this the same as the lossless audio tracks but it's just not showing the Master Audio or TrueHD on the screen or am I actually losing quality? Just so you guys do know, my video card supports HD audio and so does my receiver.

The HDMI Inputs can not accept Bitstream of DTS-HD MA or TrueHD. If your HTPC can decode those to high bit-rate, multi-channel LPCM, then the HDMI Inputs CAN accept that, and the quality should be the same.

Since you are seeing 7.1 LPCM input, it sounds like your HTPC is indeed doing the decoding.

I have read in recent posts about trying to understand the ROKU stick and its behavior. If I plug the Roku in with the BDP 103 running, it switches to the ROKU interface automatically. If I start the BDP 103 with it plugged in, it just shows up as a selection on the home screen. I guess that this is expected, though I would like to make it so that it would not auto jump to the Roku when it is plugged in. The real PIA is that once I am in the ROKU UI menu, I can't get out of it without unplugging the darn thing. The home menu button on the remote just takes me back to the ROKU home menu. Is there a way to get back to the OPPO home screen once having started the ROKU UI, short of unplugging the device? I also don't seem to be able to get to the OPPO setup menu to change the input. Though I am not sure hat I would change it to in order to get back to the home screen. I am not using any of the inputs on the OPPO as of now.

. . . .

To exit the Roku, press the Input button on the OPPO remote (top right) and select Blu-ray Player from the top of the pop-up menu that appears.

Most people will find it best to leave the Roku Stream Stick plugged in with Quick Start set in the OPPO. The Stick stays live even when the OPPO is OFF, so that you don't have to wait for it to reboot when you want to use it.

I don't know what rate the Oppo can sustain (though it'll be a lot less than 100M), but with Blu-ray rips potentially exceeding 50M (and significantly more than that for 3D), it seems like an odd decision not to include gigabit ethernet.

Multi region pro upgrade from Bluraychip.dk - review

Even though arrival of my package took a little longer that expected I am very pleased with the final outcome. Everything works as advertised without any issues. Installation was straight forward although a recommendation for others who like me dont know what RAR format is: check out google - I downloaded a RAR extractor from CNET.com (it worked like a charm for the extraxtion of the upgrade firmware needed). I have tested several blurays and dvds from Denmark and they have all played without fuzz.

I still retain my Oppo 83 where I also instaled the the bluraychip's multiregion upgrade - that one has worked equally well.

Anyway just wanted to give my 2 cents since I have been using many of the good inputs and recommendations from you all.
