We can't blame Oppo, My Sony BDP and WDTV does this. A pain as far as I'm concerned. At least a setting to decide if we want this interface or not would be an improvement.

It is annoying but I haven't listened to this much music in the past 2 years. What surprises me is I have an OK sub, it was the Klipsch RDW-12 which has been on sale at Newegg. When we first got it great for movies, not so much for music but for $299 it was great. The sub sounds so much tighter through the 103. I've got a second on the way to balance out the room.

It's amazing the difference from my 83 and I've ripped a good majority of our stuff to FLAC so far. Been siting here all day doing it. Downloaded some hires stuff too.

I'm hoping that this will bring back a resurgence in hires and multichannel music. Now the big obstacle to hires was the cost of the equipment and manufacture. I would bet that most masters have to be dumbed down to put on CD.

Bought my wife the new Matchbox 20 in 96/24 downloaded which was great except the $20 price tag.

I finally got my 103 to work with SMB with W7. I had to uninstall ALL pprograms under Windows Live Essencials 2012, including Windows Movie Maker and Fhoto Gallery. I also realized that Bingo Bar can re-install some Windows Live components and affect login. I no longer have to enter any ID or passwork, actually not even have to login.

Thanks for the additional clarification on this. I wonder if Microsoft is even trying to fix this?

By the way, did you mean to type "Bing" above for "Bingo"?

Yes, it's "Bing Bar". One thing I found interesting is the fact that stopping or disabling the Windows Live Sign In service (services.msc) does not solve the problem. I uninstalled the programs under Windows Live Essencials, one by one, always checking the Oppo , but only eliminating the whole package made SMB working.

This is my first Oppo, and I am very disappointed with the picture so far. The picture from my $200 Sony Blu Ray player plugged into a different Samsung TV has offered me a far better picture. Since the HDTV picture is so good, I don't believe it's the TV that is causing the problem. The firmware on both the TV and the Oppo have been updated.
Can anyone offer any advice to sharpen the picture? I must be doing something wrong, but I just don't know what it could be.

In addition to what others have posted, I hope you are aware that each HDMI port on your TV must be calibrated individually. That includes ALL settings like resolution, pixel mapping, image processing, etc. If you really want to compare the image from the player to another device like the cable box, you must pull the HDMI cables and swap them. The best way to avoid such issues is to invest in a pro calibration of all inputs.

Does anybody else have this issue, when using the 7.1 analog outs?

I have tried several True HD 5.1 tracks, and the surround back speakers are dead.
Any other 5.1 track downmixes via the 103. Except True HD.

DTS Neo:6 should not be doing *ANYTHING* when playing content with more than 2.0 channels. The fact that it engages at all while playing 5.1 content is a bug. (A known bug, OPPO is on it.)

DTS Neo:6 is not involved in "down" mixing. Rather it does the opposite -- raising 2.0 content to 5.1 or 7.1 speakers output. It does this only for the multi-channel Analog outputs.

Leave DTS Neo:6 OFF unless you are playing 2.0 content and want it raised to more than 2.0 speakers output for the multi-channel Analog outputs.

Be advised that turning on DTS Neo:6 limits the digital form of the audio to 44.1 or 48KHz (depending on the original content). Thus using DTS Neo:6 while playing 192KHz LPCM 2.0 tracks will result is those being reduced in sampling rate EVEN ON THE DIGITAL OUTPUTS.

Well, I just tried updating my player to the new firmware, and doing so seems to have killed the multi-region functionality on my modified player...which doesn't make any sense, as it is supposed to be a permanent hardware modification. Perhaps I shouldn't have gone with the strongly recommended reset to factory defaults, but either way, it should not have mattered--I just hope the vendor will honor their lifetime guarantee on the unit's multi-region abilities if this turns out to be a permanent snafu.

I'm still waiting to hear from family to find out when they can come over to help swap out HDMI cables, as this was Oppo's suggestion regarding the blackouts / snow on 25 fps material.

I must say, I am doggedly trying to be optimistic, but so far, I am not very impressed with my player.. frown.gif

It sounds like you bought your OPPO from a modifier. Your first contact for problems has to be the modifier company. Some of the mod kits can be removed. If that's the case, it might be a good idea to try to get the performance you expected without the mod installed. The first step in trying to solve a problem in a complex environment is to simplify the environment. There are a lot of experts here who can help you simplify. smile.gif

Also, in your case the most likely problem with the current firmware is the mod kit. It may also need a firmware update.

You can get 6' HDMI cables from for under $4.00 each:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240#1024008

I assume that others have told you that HDMI connections can also be a problem that causes "snow". Long HDMI cable runs will also cause problems. If you have a long run, try using a short HDMI cable direct to your display. Nothing in the post I'm replying to indicates a probable OPPO problem. There may be one but it's a long shot.

I did buy the Oppo from a third party site, because I did not feel comfortable performing any modificiations on the unit personally due to certain physical limitations I have. The company in question has a lifetime guarantee on the region-free functionality of their players (they sell a lot of them) and I had previously bought a Panasonic DMP-BD35 from them, which worked flawlessly for four years.

So I'm very hopeful that this is all a kink that my vendor can iron out as part of a one-time fix...It's going to be difficult enough for me to get the player and its power cable disconnected in order to pack it up and send it back for them to look at it. tongue.gif

In terms of the HDMI cables, I don't have ones longer than a standard size, as everything is in one entertainment center. Thanks for the link, as I will probably need to pick some up if the 25 fps issue is not solved by the vendor. smile.gif

Is it possible for you to get help checking your HDMI cables? One major source of HDMI trouble is the connection at each point in the entire HDMI chain from the player to the TV. The weight of the cable can cause a connection to go marginally bad. That's why the link I posted was pointing to the lightest (28 AWG) cables. Every connection needs to be checked for any kind of strain.

There are HDMI locking devices that make use of the screw located above most HDMI input ports. Others have found them to work. I've never needed to try them. If you get to the point where you think something like that would help, I'm sure that someone here will point you to where to get them.

I don't have a modified player, but from the reading I've done here going back to the introduction of the OPPO 83, the good modifiers will update their products when a conflict arises from a new OPPO firmware release.

I would be happy to help you check your HDMI cables, but I'm on the wrong coast. rolleyes.gif

I'm trying, unfortunately, my family is in a bit of chaos right now, and no one else is electronically literate when it comes to Home Theater (huge PITA in these situations by the way). In any event, the player definitely needs to go back so the vendor can fix their mod, as it seems I now have a lovely Oppo Region A LOCKED player (DVDs still seem to work, at least my R2 UK ones), and when more than half of your collection is non US discs, that's not good...

Thanks for the offer to help, though. smile.gif

I do have Windows Live installed, just the Family Safety module. I'll try uninstalling it and trying again. I guess I'll be in the market for a filtering/monitoring tool if it is causing problems. Or maybe MS will fix their stuff properly. rolleyes.gif

I recently hooked up my Panny GT50 and the settings for the TV changed based on the HDMI input I was using. I had a similar problem when viewing the Oppo, and realized the picture settings I was using for my HDMI 1 connection were not maintained when using my HDMI 3 connection (in this case the Oppo). I had to go back and change the settings while on HDMI 3. Not sure if that is your problem but may be worth checking.

I have assigned the blue button on the remote to represent the "input" button on the Oppo remote. Changed delay settings etc and put delays of 1sec between comands but with a 20 sec delay on sending the "input" command to the Oppo to let it start-up.
Still no joy? The Oppo doesn't even start to change the input? I have it programmed as a 20 sec delay before changes after power on and then 3 blue buttons (programmed as an input button from the Oppo remote) and then a select to confirm the output?
Does anybody have any advice as to what I am doing wrong?
Ian in Ottawa

I don't have an easy fix for you as I have the same issue. I'm using a URC remote and using the Oppo as a video processor for my TIVO.

Prior to the new Oppo, I had my remote set up with macros to turn on/off my TV, DVDO Edge and AVR. I can't get the macro to work with the Oppo, even with quick start and built-in delay.

I have to manually change the input on the Oppo every time I start up the system to watch TV. That's not much of a problem for me, but the wife objects to the extra step. She doesn’t care about video processing…blah, blah, blah. She just wants to watch TV without hassle.

This is our main home theater system, and I want the best PQ possible from my equipment. She has her own smaller system in her office, but she doesn’t want to be confined to that room when I’m not around to turn the TV on and off.

I suggested earlier in the thread that Oppo release a firmware update that would provide an option to leave the player on the selected output rather than always defaulting to the DVD output.

This would greatly simplify things in our house since we watch TV much more than DVDs.

I watch 0 broadcast TV. I bought the OPPO to play shiny disks as I have hundreds but I see no issues with leaving it on the last used input. Also, If I have to give up Windows live mail then I will just have to get used to the Oppo Password screen as I am keeping Windows Live Mail.

Hello Everyone!

What is the best settings for the HDMI options below and explain why:


Color Space(HDMI1) [ Auto | RGB Video Level | RGB PC Level | YCbCr 4:4:4 | YCbCr 4:2:2 ]

Color Space(HDMI2) [ Auto | RGB Video Level | RGB PC Level | YCbCr 4:4:4 | YCbCr 4:2:2 ]

Deep Color(HDMI1) [ 36 Bits | 30 Bits (dithered) | 30 Bits | Off (dithered) | Off ]

Deep Color(HDMI2) [ 36 Bits | 30 Bits (dithered) | 30 Bits | Off (dithered) | Off ]

Deep Color(HDMI2) [ 36 Bits | 30 Bits (dithered) | 30 Bits | Off (dithered) | Off ]

That's going to depend on the rest of your gear.

Color space defaults to YCbCr 4:4:4 when you use AUTO. All selections should produce the same results; you have the choices to work around problems in other gear.

Until such time as a real calibration disc has a Deep Color test pattern, I find "OFF" to be the most care free choice. (Note Deep Color has nothing to do with giving you deeper color; it might reduce banding in some cases).

The -103 supports the GPT partitioning table used on discs larger than 2TB, but people report that 2TB is still the largest supported partition size.

We hope with this be corrected in future firmware, but you might hold off on a larger disc until it is.

In /etc/samba/smb.conf, place this line under "[global]":

Restart the SAMBA server. Works great on Linux but I have not heard NAS reports yet.

Help/Question Re: MKV's

This is what is working for me so far, what is not and what I can not find answers to. Any info or help would be much appreciated.

All MKV Rips have been made using MakeMKV
  • SD/DVD MKV Rips: All work without issue regardless of audio format (DD, DTS or PCM)
  • Blu-Ray/BD MKV Rips: Video has zero issues.
  • Blu-Ray/BD MKV Rips: Audio: with HDMI Set to Auto, everything works with the exception of Dolby TrueHD which I found out you have to specify LPCM instead of Auto and it works no problem. The only problem I am having is with Blu-Rays with Uncompressed PCM Soundtracks. I get a message saying the Audio Format is Not Supported, this is with HDMI Set to Auto, Bitstream or LPCM.

I found this on AVS: "open MKVmerge GUI, and go to File -> Header Editor. Then go to File -> Open and browse to your MKV. Scroll down to the audio track that contains the LPCM audio and change the Codec ID from "A_MS/ACM" to "A_PCM/INT/LIT". Then File -> Save."

I tried it and still no go. When I select the LPCM Soundtrack all I get is static output regardless of HDMI Setting Auto, Bitstream, or LPCM.

Can anyone provide any insight to this and how to fix it? Is this a MakeMKV issue or an Oppo Issue? If it is MakeMKV, can anyone recommend an alternate software that would alleviate this problem.

Thanks in advance.

I don't recall that being reported before, but you may be the first to try it.

Have you asked in this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1336046/ripping-blu-rays-ii

You might write this up for OPPO and ask if they want a file sample.

I've used Handbrake for BR with PCM audio but by default it converts everything to AAC, which works fine. This does not retain either the original audio or video, which is objectionable to some users.

Thanks Bill. I will send to Oppo and cross post in the other thread. I've tried to research this the last couple of days as this is the only issue that has come up so far related MKV's. It just seems the last couple of discs I have been archiving have Uncompressed LPCM tracks. I have been just been using MakeMKV to rip the main movie along with the highest quality original soundtrack available. Now, when doing LPCM, I have been including the lossy DD track, which does work; however, not what I want.

It's a MakeMKV issue.

I experienced the same issue a while back and used the "fix" described above. FWIW, I only selected the LPCM track when doing the original conversion if that makes a difference. Plays fine via DLNA on my network with the Oppo. But....I was also using an older version of MakeMKV (Mac) at the time so I don't know if this is fixed or changed (in a bad way) with more recent versions.

Also, the recent firmware update from Oppo permits TrueHD in MKV containers (along with DTS-MA) so you won't have to do any audio conversion to LPCM during the conversion with MakeMKV.

YMMV.

Thank you for the reply. After the recent Oppo firmware update DTS-MA works no problem but TrueHD still requires me to set the HDMI Setting specifically to LPCM. I am using the latest version of MakeMKV and tried it both on Windows and a MAC and selected only the LPCM track with the same results. I have modified the header, as noted in the fix, but, all that does is result in static being output when selecting the LPCM track.

EDIT:

Ok, I think I understand now. I thought that you were setting MakeMKV to convert TrueHD to LPCM. There are two separate issues here.


1) The Oppo will not bitstream TrueHD within a MKV container and the LPCM output setting on the Oppo must be used. This is a known limitation. (Currently DTS-MA does bitstream from MKV.)

2) When using MakeMKV to create a MKV from a BR disc that contains a LPCM track the "fix" must be used within MakeMKV (unless this bug in MakeMKV has been fixed). The Oppo will play a MKV file with a properly encoded HD multi-channel LPCM audio track.

Are these from standard, hollywood DVD discs? The vast majority of official DVD movies will not fit onto a single layer DVD-R. That means that you would have had to use some special software that re-encodes and re-formats the movie to fit on a smaller disc. That software may have encoded the chapters or something else incorrectly. Or it may have encoded it in some bizarre form that's not very common.

I'm assuming these discs still play fine in other DVD players?

Bottom line is your best bet is to contact Oppo and possibly send them a sample disc so that they can see if they can word around the copying software's error, or handle the obscure formatting method used, or whatever the problem turns out to be.
