Official OPPO BDP-103 Owner's Thread - Page 198

post #5911 of 16452
I recently purchased OPPO BDP-103 and I am very pleased with the quality of video and audio. But, I have a problem with connecting OPPO to PC Windows 7.
My home network consists of:
1. PC Windows 7
2. PC Windows XP
3. WD (Western Digital) TV Live Media Player
4. OPPO BDP-103 (Multi Region)
I can connect from WD to PC W/7 and PC W/XP,
from PC W/7 to PC W/XP and WD,
from OPPO to WD and PC W/XP.
I cannot connect from OPPO to PC W/7.
Tried everything, with or without password, but always get Log In Error.
Can anybody help with some advice?

^ The usual suggestion is to uninstall any components of Windows Live Essentials that you might have on Windows 7 as it appears to interfere with SMB access to Windows 7.

Some folks have reported that components of Windows Live Essentials may be a bit tricky to find (embedded with other installs) and so they report success by installing Windows Live Essentials and THEN uninstalling it to get rid of all of them.

ETA: I should add it is also possible to screw up access to Windows 7 if you don't have the various sharing permissions set up correctly in it. There have been a number of posts from folks in this thread describing what's known to work. Try a search. I'm not sure if this info has made it into the FAQ (link available at the top of the first post of this thread). I don't do SMB from Windows 7, so I can't rattle off the answer for you.

Slowly but surely most of our clients have switched to Oppo players for the most important reason they have yet to not play a disc which can not be said about a lot of other players besides having better a/v in most cases.

There are a couple aspects of that. Stupid Studio Programmer Tricks invariably result in discs that give players fits. The OPPO players are not immune to that. Behind the scenes the studios work with the player manufacturers to vet discs before they get sold, but that doesn't always work out as the studios have been known to make changes AFTER sending out the test copies which screw things up. And sometimes they are so enamored of their cleverness that they insist the player makers catch up and find a way to handle their latest tricks. It would be nice to believe the OPPO players can't fall prey to this, but that's simply not the case. The studio programmers will always have the upper hand if they insist on shipping discs without proper testing and without regard to whether customers will be affected. At least until OPPO can get a firmware update out to squelch whatever they've done this time.

The other aspect is the ability to read discs which are dirty or have physical manufacturing flaws. Each OPPO Blu-ray player has improved over the prior models in its ability to read such discs, or recover faster when presented with truly unreadable portions (i.e., finding a way to skip past them). I thought the 93 was a big step up from the 83 in this regard, but I was astounded at how easily the 103/105 handled some discs that my 93 can't read. Obviously there comes a point where the disc is in such bad shape that even the 103/105 can't read it, but that point has been moved quite a bit farther along by these new players. As a matter of course, I never clean my rental discs, for example, just to see how the player will handle discs with fingerprints and other cruft on them (i.e., part of Beta Testing). It is surprisingly rare for any such discs to give me grief.

The second part really isn't true for me or some others here.

Attempting to modify the settings in my display to compensate throws off the balance I've achieved among my other video sources and frustrates.

I believe that the 103 thru HDMI 1 has a better picture for Blu Rays than the BDP-80 whose place it took in my rack. I feel like I noticed it right away, which was quite thrilling. I assume I have the QDEO to thank for that. But I'm frustrated by the progressive nature of the noise reduction going on in the chip with standard def sources and annoyed that I have no control over it. This admittedly reflects a lot of subjective personal preference of mine, as I have never liked sacrificing fine detail for a smoother or less noisy picture, but I'm not alone in that either.

Out of 4 Blu Ray players (and at least one upconverting DVD player) the BPD 103 is the worst upconverter that I've owned for my particular tastes. This isn't high tragedy or anything, but it is disappointing and it has not been easily fixed in my opinion.

Would anyone expect the video processing to improve  HDTV from a tivo elite/FIOS to a 91x51 screen size?   Currently just send native hdtv via tivo to sony vw95 pj.

I know the chroma and other issues come from HDMI 2 unfortunately, can those be adjusted via the picture adjustment menu to come in line with a proper calibration or are they just too far off to correct?

What you are trying to do can not be done in the current firmware.

Send an email to OPPO Tech Support describing what you would like to be able to do. These requests do get taken seriously by their engineers. I would imagine Blu-ray copy protection requirements will make this tricky (particularly for discs authored with BD-Java), but OPPO has pulled off "tricky" before.

(At the very least, they'll have to insure the disc is Paused since there's only one decoder and it can't be reading/decoding files off the disc while also handling another input. There will also be problems if you try to do this where Pause is a Prevented User Operation on that disc, such as on animated menus or warning screens -- or even previews for some discs.)
--Bob

Thanks for the reply Bob, makes perfect sense. We're in the process of obtaining a new A/V switch to help sort out these issues for our small town independent theater. I'll also contact Oppo tech support as well - see if they have any firmware plans that would help.
Cheers,
Mike

New to this thread and I am considering one. I've got a $90 Samsung BD/3D player from Costco that I bought because I wanted to see 3D movies on my new Samsung 65ES8000 TV. I don't even know what model. On the Samsung ES8000 forum several people have the 103 and like it. I use a cable STB. I don't stream much at all, what I do I use Apple TV3. I use that for music occasionally. I wonder whether this will improve regular old DVD images as opposed to BD viewing. And whether it will improve my STB viewing too. I have a decent sound system, but only 5.1. Nice thread here.

No- It wasn't leaps and bounds- night and day different. It was subtle. It just felt right- spot on.
Sure, I could have lived with the Pioneer- but i knew I would always be wishing i kept the Oppo.
I don't disagree with your conclusion about keeping the OPPO, but, the current question was about Blu-ray only, and would the person asking the question be able to tell the difference.

I have loved all my OPPO players, but when someone asks "Will I, me personally, be able to tell the difference playing Blu-ray disks?" my answer has to be probably not unless you put a great deal of effort into analysis of the OPPO and other players. It's clear to me that for you and me owning an OPPO player is worth every bit of what we paid for them. Enjoy. biggrin.gif

Yes. An OPPO player will improve DVD playback and it will be fairly easy to tell the difference in a lot of cases. I see STB source material to be somewhat damaged to begin with. Once compressed, I don't believe in resurrected source material. I don't own a BDP-103, so I can't comment on the success of using the OPPO to process STB signals. From reading this thread, it seems like a mixed bag, but it's early days in the firmware development for the 103/105 models.

Hi Everyone,

I have a slightly off-topic question that I hope someone could help me with. Is there any other player in the marketplace that will convert a region free PAL BD to NTSC; as the OPPO does without any sort of hacking or mods? I get a lot of questions regarding this from people who have owned region free dvd players who now want something similar in BD players. Basically, they are parsimonious and never heard of avsforum. It seems, at least to me, NYC is awash in PAL discs.

Try this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/959985/official-help-me-choose-a-player-thread-cant-decide-start-here

Search for "PAL NTSC" and if that doesn't help, ask for recommendations.

By the way, there is no such thing as a PAL BD. All Blu-Ray discs are the same but may include region coding. So-called PAL BDs are really Region B or C encoded BDs. Some early Region B or C BDs may contain standard definition extras and these can possibly be PAL-encoded but the actual disk is simply a Blu-Ray disc. It is the region coding that must be dealt with, not a different video target format and, as far as I know, there are no Blu-Ray players that will play any region-encoded discs outside of the player's specified default region without some sort of hacking or modification. There are places that sell Blu-Ray players with the hacks/mods already in place but these also require the entrance of code or remote key sequences to actually select a particular region. Fortunately the majority of BDs seem to be free of region coding, though many from smaller studios/disc companies (like Criterion, Kino, Arrow Films and others) and some big ones (Disney especially) are region-encoded. There are also a few BDs encoded with 25 or 50 hz encoding (TV shows and concerts) and these may not work with many North American players and/or TVs.

I think I am the first person to bring up the chroma up sampling problems I encountered using the S&M tests on HDMI 2. Other than up sampling, with source Direct, I think the 103 presents a wonderfully detailed picture with no other issues. However my setup (Lumagen Radiance vp and Elite 70X5) fails all the tests. I can see the reduced luminance in 422 and 444 and RGB washes out the colors. If I can see this with my eyes, be the definition calibrators use for good results (less than 2de) the up sampling problems would cause the calibration to be inaccurate. Others have reported that there setups pass at least 1 of the color space tests and I seem to remember someone reporting that his setup passed them all. Regarding proper calibration correcting the problem, I would wait to see if what Oppo's engineers have to say about a fix.

So running the STB through there is sort of like ripping a CD to MP3 at 128mbps and trying to "upconvert" it to 320mbps. I could see how that wouldn't do much if anything. I don't have any improvement stuff in my AVR so this may be something I'm interested in.

While I appreciate your advice, isn't it a contradiction to state there is no PAL BD when you say "There are also a few BDs encoded with 25 or 50 hz encoding (TV shows and concerts)?" If I recall correctly my friend's Chris Ryan's Strike Back region free BD is encoded in the PAL format ; albeit in HD. If I missed something, please correct me.


EDIT: I have to retract my statement. A quick search lead to a strict definition of PAL during the analog days and now they have moved on to DVB-T. I used PAL BD in the same context as OPPO when describing the frame rate differences in BDs.
"PAL/NTSC Conversion - The BDP-103 supports NTSC and PAL systems for both disc playback and video output. It can also convert content of one system for output in another. (Subject to DVD and BD region restrictions.)"

post #5929 of 16452
Yes. You have it now. PAL is a specific format from the analog TV days. All BDs use a digital format, but various frame rates are possible in the standard: 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60. It is not PAL though. There is a lot of confusion about this.

For 2D->3D conversion, does this only apply to converting SBS or Top-Bottom into frame packed 3D?

Or does it also mean creating frame-packed 3D from "normal" 2D material?
post #5931 of 16452
Well I joined the Oppo club today, and have been enjoying the 103 all afternoon! I definitely see a difference in video quality over my Samsung bluray player, (not huge, but definitely notice it) and have been going thru some of my blurays to experience this awesome player. I'm new to Oppo in general, and was wowed by it's quality build and overall flawless operation (so far). From the moment I started unboxing this unit, I knew there was a reason people speak highly of Oppo players. Their presentation, and obvious care in packaging this unit alone is something that other companies should take note of. Haven't tried any streaming, as I use my tv to do that, so I can't comment on that. I did try connecting directv stb to the 103, & while did notice a slightly better picture, I couldn't really get used to the delay when changing channels. Also (I know it's probably just me) but I couldn't get my harmony 900 to get the oppo to switch to the rear (hdmi in) input when programming remote for the watching tv activity. That said, I'm happy to be in the club.

Assuming your 103 is set to AUTO (for its output resolution), and assuming your connected HDTV supports 1080p via HDMI, the 103 will upconvert any 720p/1080i channel provided from your D* receiver to 1080p for delivery to your HDTV.

So there is a slight delay (perfectly common and normal) for channel changing on a source device when the output resolution is "native", i.e. when it is a true 720p out when the source channel is 720p and a true 1080i out when the source channel is 1080i. So no conversion of any kind is occurring in the D* source receiver, but the 103 has to recognize the resolution change on what it's being fed, in order to decide what needs to be done to produce the 1080p output your HDTV has requested (via AUTO on the 103). The same type of short delay would occur if you had your D* receiver with "native" set connected directly to your HDTV, and also changed channels which produced differing source resolutions going to the HDTV (since the HDTV has to convert the source for its own native 1080p display). Your HDTV might be somewhat faster than the 103 resolving these source resolution changes, so its delay may be smaller than what you're seeing through the 103, but I'm sure there would be at least some small delay (or the screen goes black while it changes).

You shouldn't see any delay if sequencing through consecutive 720p channels or consecutive 1080i channels. It's only when the next channel tuned to on your D* receiver has a different resolution than the previously tuned channel will you see this symptom.

If this delay is bothersome, you might configure your D* receiver for a "fixed 1080i" or "fixed 720p", depending on what channel you finally tune to and now start to watch. If you later do some channel browsing, at least there will not be any resolution change coming from the D* receiver to the 103, so there will be no delay in changing channels. The D* receiver will be doing any needed conversion (from 720p to 1080i, or from 1080i to 720p) depending on whatever your current "fixed" resolution setting is. Once you settle on a new channel, manually adjust the D* output resolution if necessary to the new channel's, the 103 will quickly adjust itself to correspond, and your output 1080p picture on the HDTV will be optimal. And you've "avoided" the channel changing delay, at the small cost of manually changing output resolutions from the D* receiver.

Myself, I don't browse channels by sequencing through them. I get the Guide onscreen, see what's showing, and navigate to the desired channel that way, and push OK. The one-time brief resolution change from "native" which might (or might not) then be needed is unnoticeable, and the 1080p output from the 103 to the HDTV is again optimal. With my DVR's that don't have support for "native", I just use a fixed resolution and change the output to be whatever I know the source channel's resolution to be. That way I'm feeding "original native source" resolution to the 103 for output as 1080p to the HDTV, with optimal result on the screen.

Thank you for the feed back on the delay situation. I may give it another go, if I can figure out how to get my remote to turn everything on, including tuning the oppo to the right input for watching tv thru it.

Should work fine with the 103 output set to 1080p and is generally the preferred setup vs AUTO.

And I think, (correct me if I am wrong), North American DVDs have a resolution of 480 lines versus 576 lines for European ones. (Or ??)

Yes. NTSC DVD is 720x480, PAL is 720x576. The color standards are different, too.

I don't have the answer to your question, but a little patience might be in order - you posted your question while most of the active posters were most likely asleep... Give people a chance to wake up and have a cup or 2 of coffee.

I understand.

But it is then still the upconversion to 1080p from whatever 720p/1080i the input is, and the change in resolution of the current input channel from the resolution of the previously selected input channel which is responsible for the brief "black screen" or delay when going through the 103 as the 103 adjusts itself to the different source resolution. This is no different than what would happen when going direct from source to HDTV and having the same changing source channel resolutions.

Incidentally, I have my 103 set to AUTO because I have both (a) Panny 65VT50 and (b) Sony 34XBR960 connected to the two HDMI outputs of my AVR, fed from HDMI-1 out of the 103 going to the AVR. The 65VT50 can accept 1080p but the XBR960 can only accept 1080i. So depending on which HDTV I'm using for display, the 103 must output either 1080p or 1080i. Happens perfectly with AUTO set on the 103, depending on which HDTV on the other side of the AVR is powered on.

Thank you for the info. My question: Is there an easy way to see what the source channel's actual resolution is? I know off the top of my head that ESPN outputs at 720p, but do not know much about other channels. Obviously, when I hit "Info" on the TV or Oppo it always says 1080i, but that is only because I have the DVR set to output 1080i (it does not support native resolution).
