Hi Jeff,

Long time no speak!

Great minds think alike, as I just received my 103 yesterday and ordered it for the same reason.

Let us know what you think. I plan to put it through some torture tests over the next several days. Just got a new 3D projector and this is my first 3D player, so I can't wait to check it out.

Congrats on your purchase,

--J

I will be using my 103 in a dedicated theater and it will be installed in a separate equipment room.

I use an HTPC with a wireless keyboard/mouse and a monitor setting on top of of an end table next to my recliner and found a wonderful program for control a few years ago that has let me do away with all my remotes.

It's called IRCommand2 if anyone is interested (They really need to update the 80's looking graphics picture on their home page as the program looks much better and can be totally customized using themes, colors, buttons, etc, but I digress) and works great for all IR and Home control.

However, I really don't want to train all the buttons of the remote manually and was wondering if anyone had the full IR Hex Codes available for the 103?

If the remote is the same as the 83, 93, etc, then obviously any IR Hex codes would work other than any dedicated buttons for Netflix etc that are different, but I don't mind having to train a few buttons manually.

I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could PM me the long form (full) hex codes for this player so I can get it up and running.

Thanks so much,

--Jason

Will it make any difference if I burn the above BD structure on BD-R and let Oppo play the disc instead of the file from hard disc?

Yes, that will work. The restriction is on BDMV on a hard drive, not on an optical disc. BDMV is supposed to be on optical disc (and nowhere else!)

However: if the title uses Cinavia watermarking this will be detected on the BD-R copy and the protection mechanism will kick in.

OPPO links to a spreadsheet of the codes on their support page: http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-103/blu-ray-BDP-103-Support.aspx

The -103 uses the same code sets as the earlier players, with a few new additions.

post #7445 of 16385
Looking at the notes page on the remote codes spreadsheet, I see a programmable shortcut for going to a specific mode setup in Picture Adjustment:
Quote:
2. For selecting a picture adjustment preset mode, please program a code sequence of "Picture Adj." + Numeric key 1 or 2 + Numeric key 1, 2 or 3 + "SETUP". The first numeric key selects which HDMI output to adjust, and the second numeric key selects a preset picture mode.

Has that been mentioned here before? I don't recall. It also shows how to program an INPUT value, which we have talked about previously.

-Bill
post #7446 of 16385
^ "Picture Adj" from the remote itself is a press-and-hold of Setup. That might be a tricky code for some remotes to learn.
--Bob
post #7447 of 16385
True, although it is a discrete code. Hex programmers have all the fun.

Wow! Perfect and exactly what I needed.

Is the Oppo also IP Controllable? Does it/will it have a web server/app for direct browser control?

I have an older Denon 5805CI which is HDMI 1.1 only so I'll have to use output 2 for audio (Oppo must convert DTS-HD/TrueHD to PCM) and output 1 will go straight to my projector (for 3D).

I don't want to have to turn the projector on for certain things and without a 3rd output I wonder how I'd be able to hook it up to my monitor if it doesn't have IP control?

Are any other people in this (or similar) situation and what would be the best/recommended way to hook this up?

I have an iPod touch but really don't use it at home and don't want to use "any" handheld device for control anyway... Want to keep everything regarding control via the PC and definitely don't want the projector on when critically listening to music.

Thanks mate!

It's a bit confused now. We've heard that OPPO will publish IP specs, but it hasn't happened yet.

There is a media controller app out there, but so far it is only for -93/95.

OPPO support links to Android and IOS remote apps, but they are just remote replacements; you still need a display turned on to run the player browser, etc.

Doesn't J River have some sort of controller app? I have not seen it.

The -103 is a DLNA renderer, so with the right software you can push files to it without a display turned on. However, if your interest is DSD files: they are not supported over DLNA. Yet?

-Bill

There is a jr remote which will let you push audio to the oppo 103 from the MC 18. Dlna server. I am sending flac files with no issues.

I have not yet got it to push video .

Does anybody know what the transcode settings in JR River should be for video to play on the oppo 103?

I still think/hope that the MinimServer could be that Server. I was communicating with Simon today "all day". He sent me a test build that made the MinimServer visible for the Oppo. The MinimServer can "see" the .dff files (first UPnP-server I know who is able to do this). Well, I couldn`t play them. I guess I still have to "activate something".

From Synology itself still no answer on my request about supporting DSD files.. They had two holidays in Taiwan plus weekend so I will be patient.

A couple of days ago I asked Mosu, the developer of MKVToolNix, if there was official Matroska container support for .dff and .dsf (DSD) audio streams... To which he replied: "Never heard of them, so: no." - which is not an un-typical kind of response from him...

Has anyone else tried doing this? I'd be more comfortable if it was a procedure that others could confirm. Knowing my luck, I would brick my player.

Yes depending on the OPPO settings you use and if you are using the OPPO to access Netflix..

You select the options you want the OPPO to use before it outputs the signal from playing Blu-ray or DVD disks -- that includes any source device connected to the OPPO's HDMI inputs.
Quote:
Do I plug in the HDMI from the 8350 to the Oppo? Then the Oppo the my receiver?
You can connect the OPPO two ways. The simplest is to connect either HDMI1 or HDMI2 outpurs to your AVR, and then connect the AVR's HDMI output to your projector. A second way would connect the OPPO HDMI1 output directly to your projector for video, and then also connect the OPPO HDMI2 output to your AVR for audio.
Quote:
Will that upscale everything connected to the receiver? (Xbox 360, PS3, Apple TV). Or does it hook up differently?
What is the HDMI in used for then in relation to the 2 HDMI outs?
I am a bit confused on how this works.
What ever source component you connect to the OPPO HDMI inputs, like the Apple TV or a cable box, will be processed by the OPPO before the signal is output. The signal processing done will depend on how you set up the OPPO.

The manual has all the setup information, and the first posts of this thread has additional information. Once you own an OPPO BDP-103, you can get help with specific questions in this thread. smile.gif

The OPPO isn't a image processor that one would place between an AVR and a display. I don't know it that's a theoretical possibility. Maybe someone has tried it.

My way is to demux a BD with help of MeGUI, then adding the streams into tsMuxer and choosing "AVCHD".
MeGUI does extract the subtitles in PGS, that I prefer compared with SRT.

I don`t use DVDFab and MultiAVCHD but will give MutiAVCHD a try.


Btw, I was burning a DSD-disc with Korg AudioGate yesterday. The Oppo is (still?) not able to play them frown.gif

There is a much easier way to do this: http://www.jdobbs.com/ it is called BD-Rebuilder and is for free...

Yes, this is safe. The "gracenote" folder is a cache of data the player has retrieved from the GraceNote service (over the Internet). It will create the folder again if it needs to (and if the setting in Setup enables that). The Persistent Storage holds data which various movie discs want to cache in the player. It too is designed so it can be erased. If you play a disc again it will just start over stashing whatever it wanted to stash.

Are you constantly putting new video files on your USB drive? If so, remember that you need to "Eject" the drive on your computer before you unplug it from the computer, and then wait for the computer to finish any last writing it wants to do to the drive before pulling that plug.

Well, I (for one, and I'm not alone) think the older ABT chipped players -- 83, 983 --
are demonstrably better for SD-DVDs. They are observably closer to original masters
of DVDs I oversaw. A large number of people have chimed in agreement on that front.

As for blu-ray, it's hazier. There are slight differences between the images on HDMI 1 and
HDMI 2 on the 103. There is some innate image processing always on, on HDMI 1 (even on
source direct). Some can see it and don't like it on blu-rays. Some see it and like it. Some
don't see it at all.

If you want an unprocessed image you can use HDMI 2.

Further, some of us see slight differences between either of the 103 outputs
and the 83.

I personally like the look of my 83 better for blu-rays than either of the 103 outputs, but its a
very close call, nowhere near the kind of gap there is on SD-DVDs.

Someone posted that my favorite calibrator Jeff Meier (aka UMR) expressed a preference
for the 83 as well, but I have not had that discussion with him directly, so can't elaborate
or confirm.

Thanks for the confirmation, Bob. I'll try it ASAP and see if it alleviates the freezing issue.

I always choose "Safely Remove Hardware" when I unplug my hard drive from my PC.

Plug in what you want up converted to the HDMI inputs on the Yamaha, then output the Yamaha to the Oppo's input. You can then decide what output, 1 or 2, to go the Epson.

My review of the BDP-103, (for what it is worth.)

I have owned the player for just over two weeks now, enough time to learn all its features, and reasonably seat in the components. My first impressions are that this unit is built as good, or better than any other piece of my electronics. The core of my system is Rotel, so that is saying a lot. Overall, everything functions more responsively than my previous player, the Oppo BDP-83. The remote is better built, but the power cord is flimsy, about half the diameter of my BDP-83. If you are one who likes top-end cords, that will be a disappointment.

Out of the box, everything functions wonderfully. I found it easy to find the menu, verifying the firmware, BDP10X-38-1220. Disk loading time is quick. The default picture from HDMI1 is…

Well, I hate to disappoint, but I can only describe what I saw as blurry. I project the image with an Epson home cinema 5020 projector, onto a 115” screen, so if it looks bad, then it really looks bad. From blue ray disk, background colors resemble ink-smudges, almost to the point it hurt my eyes to look at them. The video image is so heavily processed, the picture so slowed, that words no longer match the lips. I would describe the picture that I saw, as vary disappointing.

However… I did not package the unit up and send it back, although the pissed-off consumer in me was screaming to shove the player up Amazon’s ass. Instead, I dug back into the setup menu, toggled on an off a number of settings, until I found settings that apparently do not function correctly.

1080p24 Output – This setting is a big contributor to the soft picture. Instead of giving a wonderfully life-like smoothness, this setting distorts the focus, makes the picture jittery, and slows the picture down until the sound no longer matches the motion. It works perfectly in HDMI2 output, but collides horribly with the Qdeo processing out of HDMI1. Turn it off, and enjoy a huge difference in picture quality.

Deep Color HDMI1 – I am completely convinced this setting is the root of all the picture dropouts. As with the 1080p24 output, expanded color simply will not play nice with the Qdeo processing. Set it to 36bit, or 30bit, makes no difference. It simply will not work properly. Turn it off, and save yourself the headache. Most people will not appreciate the small increase in color accuracy anyway. Beyond that, everything seems to work as advertised.

I have owned two other Oppo units, a DV-981, a BDP-83, and now the BDP-103. Unlike the internet advertising hype, the DV-981, a BDP-83, both had a horrible green push to the picture. One might ask, why I would buy a third, if the picture sucked on the first two? … My response; it is all about the video scaling capability. I have found no other player that can compete with Oppo, when it comes to up-scaling video, to project it on a movie screen. And despite the problems of soft picture with the BDP-103, the Qdeo actually got the colors right this time, or, maybe a little bit too enhanced. I would let you be the judge of that.

After two weeks of streaming Roku every night for a minimum of two hours, the picture has come into its own. While it still looks over processed, it has begun a clarity that exceeds my BDP-83. Maybe there is a method to the Qdeo madness after all.

The picture is not as sharp as 1080i from DirectTV. Nor can the unit upscale Roku anywhere close to the picture quality of Apple TV. It simply is incapable of that. If you are expecting to run every component through the HDMI inputs, and achieving a better picture output, you will be sadly disappointed.

A function I am now fascinated with, is the ability to attach a hard drive, and play FLAC files. Sound from the BDP-103 is exceptional, and playing a FLAC, alongside a CD, it is difficult to distinguish the difference between the two, other than the FLAC has slightly less bass response.

I purchased the unit for its ability to play 3D movies. It does this exceptionally well. In fact, it does almost everything advertised well.

My opinion so far; the unit is worth the large price tag. Stay away from the expanded color, and the 24p output and the unit should function as advertised. Those functions working properly, would make the picture look better, but not significantly better. That said, it is a bit of a piss-off to buy something and have it not function correctly.

Oppo should recognize these problems, and fix them. It took me all of about a half an hour, to narrow down my issues, to two functions that do not work correctly. If I can find them that easily, I am sure the engineers who designed the unit can.

And don’t try to run other electronics through it, to achieve a better picture. All you will do is create a headache for yourself.

Thanks for sharing your experiences and discoveries. I'd be very, very curious as to whether other people noted
the same results in toggling 1080P/24. I wonder if the use or non use could explain some of the very different reports
about HDMI 1 sharpness?

Anyone else see a difference?

The above sound chaos - sounds to me we won't be able too play .mkv files in the future some of us download from the net
I will just be carefull what firmware I update too...

I have a couple of questions:
1. If I make a backup copy using DVDFab (Full disc copy) on a hard disk, will Oppo play this BD structure?
2. If I demux Blu Ray movie (m2ts file from BDMV/STREAM folder) using TSMuxer, add subtitle (SRT file) and then create new Blu Ray structure on a hard disk using MultiAVCHD software (create Blu Ray Disc), will Oppo play this structure?
With official version BDP10X-38-1220, the above work fine.

I can't imagine any explanation for why there would be ANY difference between the sound of an original CD track (i.e. WAV) vs. its FLAC equivalent (assuming it was made correctly from a direct rip of that track to WAV).

By definition, FLAC <==> WAV, bit-for-bit 100% identical, and is a LOSSLESS COMPRESSION method, much as ZIP compression is. Playback of FLAC only requires decompression back to WAV, and from that point it is identical to playing the original CD track.

So with all due respect to why you might feel (subjectively?) that FLAC has "slightly less bass response", my own intuition tell me that's just not possible. This is not MP3 (lossy and psycho-acoustic compression)... it's FLAC (lossless bit-for-bit identical compression).

The Tale of Two QuickTime Movies

(1) iPhone QuickTime

MPEG-4 (QuickTime)
Video stream: AVC (Baseline@L3.1) 1280*720 (16:9)
Audio stream: AAC (LC) 44.1kHz 1 channel


(2) Canon Powershot S100

MPEG-4 (QuickTime)
Video stream: AVC (Baseline@L4.1) 1280*720 (16:9)
Audio stream: PCM (Little/Signed) 48kHz, 16 bits, 2 channels



OPPO is able to play the iPhone Quicktime movie, but not the Canon Quicktime movie. Is this by design, or a feature?
