Official OPPO BDP-103 Owner's Thread - Page 161

post #4801 of 16361
Have to say, I am loving my BDP-103 player. I've now watched quite an assortment of BluRay and DVD movies in the last two months, video and sound quality is wonderful. I'm using this unit with a Denon AVR-2112CI receiver, clean integration for the most part.

Thanks for the reply, Hans.

As I read though some previous comments it looks like there were some incompatibilities with the Pro kit, so I take it you're using the Standard kit and not the Pro kit?

Thx

I went with the pro kit and I have had no complications at all - the important thing is to follow the instructions carefully. Pm me if you need assistance with install.

Nb: for disclosure, I am Danish but I have no affiliation with bluraychip except that I like how I am now able to watch movies from the old home country.

Here in Tanzania we dont hv any stores to go and demo coz such gear simply isnt sold at this part of this world, so i hv to rely on this forum for all my information and gear selection. Inorder for me to purchase any gear i hv to bank wire the money to the seller in the U.S who in turn ships it to a friend of mine in Ohio. Once it gets to Ohio i then send my friend money inorder for it to be shipped here. Once it gets here i then go and deal with guys at customs and pay the import duties, and after that is when the item finally lands in my arms. So all in all i end up paying 2-3 times the cost of the item. After weeks and weeks of reading this forum i pulled the trigger on the 103,and it safely arrived yesterday. I hooked it up last night and boy oh boy am i in heaven, this thing is so damn sweet. Thanks to every forum member for their input and for guiding me in the right path. I even left work early today inorder to rush home and listen to my Bob Marley albums ripped in FLAC. Now on to the Pioneer SC-65 next....

Anyone have any Netflix issues with the 103? Mine locks up regularly. when using Netflix. I've reset everything back to factory settings and still no luck. If it freezes I get a blank screen and the remote does nothing. Can't navigate back to home or anywhere else. The only option is power off and restart. Thoughts?
post #4809 of 16361

This is usually due to a buffering error. If you are using the USB extension cable that came with the player and move the WiFi dongle to a location where the reception is higher. If at all possible, use Ethernet as it is far more reliably.

Try setting your IP Configuration (Network Setup) from AUTO (DHCP) to MANUAL. Change your DNS 1 to 008.008.008.008. Press Enter so you see 8.8.8.8 for DNS 1. Highlight OK at the bottom then exit Setup.

Try Netflix again.

Dear Oppo,
 
First - thank you for the fantastic player (the 103). However, today I've run into a problem I can't seem to fix.
 
To start, only yesterday everything was working perfectly. I played an audio CD, streamed music from my SMB share, and watched an MKV file from an attached USB drive.
 
Today, though, I can't get the player to boot to the home screen. Instead, it hangs when the LCD screen says "OPPO" after "HELLO," and my TV (connected via HDMI1) displays the OPPO and Blu-ray Disc logo. This problem started with an audio disc in the device. I have since removed it.
 
I have the latest 1220 firmware and I reset factory defaults after updating. My device is set to Energy Saver mode, not Quick Start. I connect my HDMI1 out directly to the TV and my 2.0 analog outs to a micromega HD amplifier (model IA-60). HDMI audio is turned off in the settings.
 
Through experimenting I have discovered the following odd aspects of my problem:
 
1. Disconnecting all connections from their destinations (ie. the HDMI from the TV and ethernet from the router) except for my 2.0 analog audio outs (as they are the hardest to reach) had no effect: the problem persists. (I don't see any reaction to the Home, Netflix, or Vudu buttons on the LCD screen).
 
2. Disconnecting the power cord for several minutes, reconnecting, and rebooting had no effect.
 
3. When the "HELLO" shows on the LCD, my screen shows me the resolution as 1920x1080i@60Hz. Once the LCD screen shows "OPPO", my TV refreshes and the resolution is 1920x1080@60Hz (not sure if that's a big deal, but I thought I would include it).
 
4. The remote functions for both ejecting the disc drawer and powering on and off the unit.
 
5. The eject button on the device does not work consistently. In fact, it seems to work only once per power-on.
 
6. Despite 4/5 above, there have been occasions where the open disc drive is unresponsive to the remote and the on-device button, and I must shutdown the device (responsive to the remote and device) and reboot (again responsive to the remote and device) in order to close the disc tray.
 
7. I tried to load a blu-ray (Firefly Series, Disc 1) when I opened the disc drive to see if the 103 would read it. It clearly spun the disc, but did not register it and "OPPO" persisted on the LCD screen.
 
That sums up the experimentation I have conducted. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
 
Kind regards,
Andrew

 

To follow up on my issues - I ultimately had to replace the player. I setup the new one last night and everything is dandy again. Hopefully that was a one time thing and not some hidden one-in-a-million bug in the firmware/hardware that can potentially affect more users. Thanks for the help everyone.

OPPO BDP 103 VS SONY BDP S1000ES

I want to know which has better PQ for blu ray play back

the Sony has "Super Bit Mapping smoothes out background shadow and color gradients, and HD Reality Enhancer sharpens moving edges to create the finest video output available from Sony."

not sure what the OPPO has for blu ray playback

The Sony came out in 2009, I believe. I prefer to have an image from a bluray player that hasn't been tampered with, since the signal from a bluray disk is usually more than good enough. So to me that sharpening and smoothing would have no value.

Having said that, unless there is something wrong, most bluray players put out a pretty good image, so any differences are more apt to come up in larger displays or projectors - meaning that the bluray image for current players should be pretty similar.

Not sure about a player that is from 2009 - although I'll put my BDP-83 (2009) up against any other bluray player for shiny disk play. But then it is an Oppo. smile.gif

post #4814 of 16361
Just a reminder to everyone comparing video against a prior player: The single most important thing you need to do to insure top video quality is to see to it that the video settings in your display are properly calibrated. With modern digital displays the difference between "right" and "nearly right" is quite a bit more dramatic than used to be the case with older TVs. And so any errors in the calibration of the display will likely mask any true Picture Quality differences between two players.

It may be non-intuitive, but it is also true that this is EVEN MORE IMPORTANT if you are playing SD content, such as traditional SD-DVDs (even if you have the OPPO set to upscale them to 1080p for output). There is LESS margin for error when rendering SD content than with Blu-ray content, so any errors in the adjustment of your display will likely be more noticeable when playing SD content.

Barring bugs in either player, Picture Quality for Blu-ray playback SHOULD be close to identical between any two competent players. But you'll never have a chance to see that "close to" difference if your display is messing with the image rendering.

There's a whole forum here devoted to display calibration for folks wondering how to go about that -- either using a calibration disc and your own efforts, or with the aid of a technician you hire to come in and do the job.

I'm glad you found the solution. Another case where it pays to do logical, diagnostic steps instead of leaping to the conclusion that the player needs service.

Something you might want to check: If the outlet causing the problem is on a different circuit breaker from the one that cures the problem then there may be an easy fix. House power is "3 phase" which basically means there are two different ways to connect each circuit breaker to the incoming power. If you have additional circuits added for your home theater, and if the electrician doesn't know that the stuff which will be plugged in is sensitive to ground potential mismatches, the electrician may very well connect the new circuits to the other rail of the incoming power -- which can easily put them at a different ground potential. In a typical circuit breaker box, breakers that are one above the other are connected to the opposite rails of the incoming power. Which means the fix can be no more complicated than getting the electrician to reposition the breakers in the box (the ones that service your home theater) so they are all on the same rail.

The picture is beautiful, the oppo definetly improves the att picture. The problem is the sound. The digital dolby seems to go on and off where there is no sound and then it comes on again. I have the settings in the uverse to surround, if I change it to stereo the problem goes away but now I have no 5.1 sound. I played a cd using the optical out of the oppo and it was fine. I also have analogue outputs from the uverse box directly to the tv and there is no problem. I have the optical out set at bitstream. Any suggestions not sure if the problem is with uverse or the oppo.

Thank you.

Ed

Your wiring is complex so let's see if we can simplify. Right now:

1a) You have HDMI from the Uverse to the OPPO, and (1b) from the OPPO direct to your TV (HDMI to DVI) and that's working for video.

2) You have Optical Digital audio cabling from the OPPO to your receiver.

3) You *ALSO* have Optical Digital audio cabling from the Uverse to your receiver.

4) You *ALSO* have 5.1 Analog audio cabling from the OPPO to your receiver.

I guess the question is why are you using (3)?

Your Uverse should be able to send 5.1 Bitstream audio to the OPPO over the HDMI cable (1a). That will be decoded in the OPPO and presented for output on both the Optical Digital cable (2) and the 5.1 Analog outputs (4). Simply select which of those you want to listen to in your Receiver. Set the OPPO to Bitstream output on the Optical/Coax sockets if you want to use the Optical to the Receiver.

Set up that way, the on-screen Info display (Info button on the OPPO remote, upper right of the Arrow keys) will show you exactly what audio format is coming in to the OPPO from the Uverse on that HDMI Cable.

As to why you are losing audio, the most likely explanation is that the Optical cable is damaged (kinked or stepped on) or there is some dirt in the socket or fingerprint smudges on the Optical tip of the plug at either end.

Yes you can upscale the Comcast input. To get maximum benefit you need to set the Comcast to "native" resolution output, so that it sends 480, 720p, or 1080i to the OPPO according to whatever channel you are watching at the moment. This lets the OPPO do all the heavy lifting, which is what you want for image quality. The down side to that is there must be an HDMI handshake when you change between channels broadcast at different resolutions.

I find the user interface for Netflix both adequate and fast enough, but it really depends on what matters to you. I still prefer to go to their website to search for content to add to my Instant Queue.

Navigating the Netflix interface using an attached USB keyboard works pretty well, too.
--Bob


Bob, thanks very much for the information. You mentioned that "To get maximum benefit you need to set the Comcast to "native" resolution output, so that it sends 480, 720p, or 1080i to the OPPO according to whatever channel you are watching at the moment. This lets the OPPO do all the heavy lifting, which is what you want for image quality". My Comcast DVR has to be set manually (through a difficult process) to a specific resolution, 480, 720p, or 108i0i and esentially left in that mode.There is no "auto" setting.

1080p/24 is less bandwidth on the HDMI cable than 1080p/60, so if your display can accept 1080p/24 and display it at 60Hz (thus avoiding the 48Hz problem) without screwing anything ELSE up, then you might as well stick with 1080p/24 -- less chance of dreaded HDMI connection problems.

Raising the 1080p/24 input to 60Hz for display is a relatively trivial process which ought to be easy for your display to get right. But never underestimate the cleverness of the display engineers in figuring out novel ways to screw up. I.e., check for yourself.

One thing to check for is that some displays add an excessive amount of video processing delay when fed 1080p/24. That SHOULDN'T be happening when the display is set to 60Hz refresh, but it is something to watch for. The symptom would be audio sync errors (audio ahead of video) which are worse for 1080p/24.

Just to give you an idea of how bizarre these bugs can get, some Samsung displays are known to alter their black level (Brightness) calibration just because they are being fed 1080p/24.

I mentioned above that 1080p/24 is less bandwidth on the HDMI cable, and thus has the potential to make you HDMI more robust. But you also need to be aware that when 1080p/24 output is enabled in the OPPO there must be a handshake each time it goes into effect -- e.g., perhaps when transitioning between menus and the actual content of the movie. Now a version of the handshake will still happen at 1080p/60 output (due to the change in content frame rate), but you may find the handshake completes faster if you leave the OPPO output at 1080p/60. If so, and if your HDMI cables are OK with the extra bandwidth of 1080p/60, that would be a reason to set 1080p/60.

Comcast likely has a newer model of DVR you can swap out for your older model. Their current DVRs all support the "native" setting I believe. There's a forum here which discusses these set top boxes, so you can check what they have available in their local office against what you need.

Best Buy orders discs in advance, in large quantity, and gets them early so they can be distributed to the stores in time for the disc release date. As such, if there is an authoring or pressing problem in the disc as originally shipped, the ones delivered to Best Buy will likely have that. This is nothing against Best Buy. They are just early in the distribution chain. If discs need to be recalled by the studio any retailer that gets them early like this will likely be impacted. The real problem is the studio shipping the disc without adequate Quality Control testing in the first place.

I suppose it is possible Best Buy has a deal with some studios to get their discs from a different disc fab house than is used to fulfill to other retailers, but that doesn't seem all that likely an explanation.

Yes, the newer DCX* family of Comcast/TWC Motorola boxes do provide a "native" setting for delivery of whatever source program resolution was to the HDMI output, rather than forcing the user to pick a fixed resolution in the DVR setup and changing it manually if you should say go from an NBC family channel (1080i) to a FOX/ABC family channel (720p). That manual change (if necessary) to output resolution can be done in the DVR setup, or actually "more conveniently" by pushing the FORMAT button repeatedly on the front panel of the DVR itself, which will result in the box "cycling sequentially" through all of the available output resolutions. Of course the new DCX boxes with "native" (to let the box decide what to output based on the source program resolution) is clearly the "most convenient", but you need that latest generation equipment.

More annoyingly, actually, is that the BDP-103 doesn't itself have such a "native" setting, although I suppose you could use "source direct" to pass through whatever resolution was received from the external HDMI input, putting out the same resolution without your having to manually change the resolution. The downside of "source direct" is that bypasses all video processing, which is actually one of the GOOD things about the Oppo when sending HDTV from a cable/satellite receiver through the 103.

In other words, pushing the RESOLUTION button (lower-left corner of the remote) is identical in purpose to pushing the FORMAT button on the DVR's face. This allows you to then instantly choose an output resolution in real time, without having to go back to the video setup dialog. So if you know the input program is 720p and you want to send 720p to your HDTV (as opposed to upconverting to 1080i or 1080p by the 103 or AVR, because the HDTV does a better job displaying an optimized picture when receiving the original 720p), you'd really like the 103 to do that automatically... i.e. its own "native" passing input resolution through as output resolution, while still making use of QDEO enhancements for the HDTV input video. Unfortunately, no such option exists.

Would I achieve better SQ if I switch to analogues out on the Oppo and let the Oppo do the audio processing? If so do I still use the Denon to set up it up through Audyssey or do I need to do the set up through the Oppo manually?1.gif

If you want to use Audyssey (which is likely), I recommend you continue using HDMI audio as you are now. It is possibly your Denon doesn't even offer Audyssey processing on multi-channel Analog audio input, but if it does it will have to RE-DIGITIZE the Analog input since Audyssey is a DIGITAL audio processing algorithm. By sticking with HDMI you keep the audio digital all the way through Audyssey.

If you are willing to forego Audyssey, then you may want to try the Analog outputs. I don't know enough about the audio design of that Denon to predict whether you will hear an improvement.

Secrets of Home Theater (Chris Heinonen): New Review of the OPPO BDP-103

http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/blu-ray-players/blu-ray-players-reviews/oppo-bdp-103-blu-ray-player/all-pages.html

Conclusions about the Oppo BDP-103 Blu-ray Player

For those coming to the BDP-103 expecting a standard Blu-ray movie to look better, or even different, than with the BDP-93 or BDP-83 you'll come away disappointed. Just like those players, the BDP-103 is pixel-perfect and outputs exactly what is on the disc. The Oppo has plenty of adjustments available, but thankfully stays away from offering the difference Scene Modes that many other vendors are intent on offering now, and sometimes even defaulting to. Everything about the image coming from the Oppo says "Reference Class", be it Blu-ray or DVD content.

Of course, Oppo has kept up by offering far more features than they had on their previous players. The online content has been improved, as has network streaming and playback. Most notably they have added HDMI inputs with processing as well as 4K-output capability. While many other vendors are dropping analog audio outputs, Oppo has kept those around and tweaked the audio output compared to the BDP-93, which was already very good. Oppo has shown they are determined to not fall behind in the Blu-ray race, and have added features we haven't seen anywhere before.

This year saw what I felt was one of the first mass-market players that really gave the Oppo a decent competitor in the Sony BDP-S790. With many of the features we expect on the Oppo, such as dual HDMI outputs and a Source Direct mode, the Sony offered up phenomenal performance for its price. However it also tripped up on the Blu-ray Benchmark a couple of times on tests that the Oppo passed without issue. It also lacks many of the more advanced features, like subtitle shift, that some dedicated home theaters need, and it is not a fully universal player with 8 channel analog outputs. Finally, it does not have the HDMI inputs and video processing for external sources that the Oppo offers.

Other players have come out firing at Oppo, but none has yet to dethrone it as the reference Blu-ray player. It has output that is perfect, has features that no one else has been able to offer, and has performance in all areas that leads the industry. For the single best Blu-ray picture available, the Oppo BDP-103 is untouchable.


This is the much anticipated companion piece to their earlier review of the BDP-105 (Secrets' "Product of the Year" for 2012!). Since both players share the identical video and decoding architecture, the Secrets Benchmark Test results and video test-bench results were deferred to this review.

I just bought a British DVD TV series from Amazon UK (cheaper) called Death-In-Paradise (Season 1). I believe its region 2 and PAL based. Can the 103/105 play these DVDs natively w/o hw/sw region kits? FAQ maybe not clear(to me) about this topic.

 

Thanks,

David

post #4826 of 16361
^ PAL format, yes.

Region 2 locked, no.

But be aware that quite a few discs are incorrectly described as locked when they really aren't. So just try it.

In addition , the SuperDisc method will make the player Region-free for SD-DVD playback without requiring any hardware mod. See the FAQ (link at top of first post in this thread).

OPPO supports PAL DVD so the issue is region coding. I use the free SuperDisc software mod. As the FAQ says:

Region Free Modifications

Quote:
SuperDisc (free)

This will make the player region-free for DVDs, but not for Blu-ray.

It is a tiny bit of software that has worked on every OPPO Blu-ray player so far. I use it and have found it to be trouble free.

Follow the directions closely. It must be copied to a CD-R, not a burnable DVD. Save the disc because you may need to install it again after a firmware update, although I can't remember the last time I had to do that.

You load the disc, it waits a second then ejects the tray again. That's all: it's done.

Wouldn't that require sending a non-standard frame rate to the display? I don't believe HDMI supports anything like that.

post #4830 of 16361
I guess I confused you the only optical cable I am using is from the oppo to the receiver. I do not have an optical cable from the uverse to the receiver. If cd's are working fine useing the oppo with the optical connection to the receiver would that mean the cable is ok?

Thanks for the imput,
