The "Netflix" button is working correctly from the original Oppo remote so it is something with the Harmony. I guess I can try to "Learn Raw" which is different from just learning the button command, not sure what but I will try?

I just acquired a bdp-103 to replace my bdp-95. I noticed that the jitter in 103 is worse than in 95. I played the same test dvd and the difference is very pronounced. Has anyone else found this to be true?
post #8133 of 16420
^ Jitter??? Are you referring to the audio of a DVD? How are you connected?
post #8134 of 16420
I'm referring to the video image of the same DVD. The panning from right to left of the same scene. Comparing it to the way the 95 renders it, it is not as smooth. I'm connected: OPPO >HDMI >RECEIVER>HDMI>Projector

Start by checking that you have DVD 24p Conversion turned off. The disc you are playing may not be appropriate for that.

an audiophile level CD player), image processing options, DVD-upscalling, number of formats
it can handle, comparative ease of making it region free, etc. etc.

That said, some people see bigger differences in the BR PQ of various players than
others. Whether that's their sensitive eyes, or equipment dancing together better, or
a placebo effect, it's very hard to say.

One great thing about Oppo, they have a liberal return policy, so if you decide within 30
days the cost isn't worth the features or PQ for you, all you're out is shipping.

Thanks for the input! I would have to agree that most modern Blu-ray players are very close. I was intrigued by the build quality, aesthetics, and HDMI input option on the Oppo to use with my cable box. I've read that using the Oppo's video processing can help with the mediocre source material that cable providers beam nowadays. I would like to move away from the PS3 and begin building a system with nice, quality components that are aesthetically pleasing and perform at a high level.

Thanks, Bob. Yes, the DVD 24pconversion is currently turned ON. When I had my 95 that was also turned ON, so I think it is not the disc but the player? The way it's played by bdp-103 is just like frame by frame, only at a faster speed.
post #8138 of 16420
Okay, problem solved. I turned off the DVD 24p CONVERSION and that smoothen the playback.
post #8139 of 16420
^ Turn DVD 24p Conversion OFF and check again. DVD 24p Conversion is not appropriate for all SD-DVDs. If you see frame drop stutter then that's the case, so just turn it off for that disc. This is "normal".

ETA: OK, just saw your follow up. Yes, that makes sense.

Try toggling off the true 24 video. I own both the BDP-83, and the BDP-103, used both through Panasonic, and Epson projectors, and found the 24p on the BDP-103 to be defective, causing both jitter and lip sync issues.
post #8142 of 16420
Woohoo, got my 103 today after missing FedEx yesterday. Had some trouble with my Harmony One at first getting things to work right, but all is good to go and I am pleased with the machine. It is a little better than my 93 was just because I prefer the Nextflix 5.1 and 1080P vs. Cinavia not being on the 93. I have only listened to one DVD-A and I will certainly watch a blu-ray tonight.

This is a handshake issue. I have the same problem. When this happens I just restart by pushing the back button. It doesn't bother me.

Hello,

When it comes to the Oppo 103 acting as an external video processor, by using it's HDMI inputs, how would it compare to the video processing on the Marantz 8801 pre/pro? I like the idea of the Oppo doing some video processing, but if the Martanz 8801 has equal or superior video processing, then I may just go with the Sony S790 instead.

Thoughts?

That should be controllable from the disc menu. Else use the Audio button on the remote and select a different audio track from the popup.

You've either selected the "commentary track" on the disc or you ripped the wrong audio track from the disc. depends on if you were watching it on the original disc or a ripped version off your network.

but you're listening to the wrong audio track. probably isn't DTS-MA either. What does your player tell you?

Some discs come with an Audio Description track which is intended to help blind people enjoy the movie. For some discs this is selected like an alternate language track or a filmmaker's commentary track -- i.e., using the disc's own Setup menu or using the Audio button on the OPPO remote.

But for other discs this is selected BEFORE the disc's menus load. For example, as the disc is loading a page may come up asking you to select English vs. some other language -- which will control how the disc's menus appear -- and the choice to fire up the Audio Description or not sometimes gets made there.

Anyway, eject the disc, go into Setup > Device Setup on the OPPO and Erase Persistent Storage (which will delete any choices the disc remembers your having already made), and load the disc again.

Is here an expert in CUE-sheet things among us? smile.gif I have read about the 99 tracks limit. It seems there is also a 99 (or 100) minutes limit. Yesterday I was merging another double SACD into a DFF-file. 25 tracks all in all. The last track`s index is "01 101:54:48". Result: "CUE-file is not supported". Now I removed that last track before merging again. The last track`s index is "01 97:34:18". Result: Oppo does accept the CUE-sheet.
I also was wondering why I could play a CUE-sheet with a merged DFF-file of the three SACD-albums from the Pixies. Till I checked the CUE-file. The last track`s index was still below 100:00:00. These "short" albums at that time help in this case.

A few questions regarding how to properly setup and utilise the Oppo BDP-103EU.


#1: First of I want to use the built in scaler of the Oppo BDP-103EU as it should be superior to the one built into my Pioneer Kuro LX5090H and my Yamaha RX-V3900 AV-Receiver. But how does one actually do this?

Everything is connected through my AV-receiver, and I want everything to use the Oppo BDP-103EU scaler, how do I connect this properly? Do I connect the output of my AV-receiver to the input of the BDP-103EU, and use one of the two HDMI outputs of the BDP-103EU for audio to one of the AV-receivers inputs for audio while watching BD-movies, streams etc on the Oppo and the other output directly to my Pioneer for the video? Upon using the BDP-103EU as a scaler, I guess it needs to be powered on each and every time I want to watch anything, right?

Like this:

Oppo BDP-103EU Output 2 (Audio), PS3, AppleTV, Xbox360, ADB 5720SX Satellite Tuner ---HDMI--> Various inputs on my RX-V3900 // RX-V3900 Output ---HDMI---> Input on my Oppo BDP-103EU // Output 1 on my Oppo BDP-103EU (Video) ----HDMI--> Input on my Pioneer Kuro LX5090H.

This should make so BDP-103EU takes care of all the scaling if I disable all scaling on my AV-receiver and all other devices? At the same time as I should get audio transferred using HDMI from the BDP-103EU to my AV-receiver while watching BD-movies and other content on the Oppo, or am I mistaken?


#2: What's the best way to get content from my file-server to the Oppo BDP-103EU? NFS share, SMB share, DNLA?

Interesting finding. I know that 99 mins was (is still?) the maximum audio length which still fits to a CD-R. Although not sure if this is related to your problem.

guys very strange intermediate I get a high screech or not normal audio during a movie with very high tones .

I checked my system completely and no blown speakers actually this is only happening with the oppo .

Yes, that makes sense. Well, never had to do with CUE-sheets before. Thanks to Oppo I got the chance to do it now smile.gif

Yes, I'd try a different HDMI cable...I've had a few issues with RedMere HDMI cables...I like the size (small cable) but, I've experienced a few quirky things...e.g., green blocky screen (HDTV) when powering up or switching sources, laptop to LCD monitor, shaky video borders on the LCD. I think it's a handshake issue. No real sound issues other than there is a 1-2 second lag when playing the beginning of a MP3/WAV/FLAC file using the Oppo-BDP103 from my wired SMB NAS. It happens regardless of which HDMI cable I've used. In my experience with electronics...if something isn't working correctly, it's usually a connection issue...cable and/or the connection.

At this point, I'm just going to put the 18" cable back on, switch the output to LPCM, and never look back. My receiver won't display the signal type on the front, but it should sound the same.

I have the same lag issues regardless of which HDMI type (ReMere or otherwise) or length of cable I use. I get a 1 to 2 to 3 second lag when playing music files (MP3/WAV/FLAC stereo or multichannel) from the Oppo using my wired SMB NAS. The Oppo is set to Bitstream. NAS--->Oppo (Bitstream)--->Onkyo. FYI, I've contacted Oppo tech support regarding the lag issue, so hopefully they will fix it in the upcoming "official" firmware. For now, after the song starts, I push the back button on the remote to hear the beginning of the song. Bitsteam and LPCM should sound the same, I suppose it just depends on whether you'd prefer the Oppo to do the encoding or your AVR...If you have the Oppo set to Bitstream you'll see on your AVR display the encoding i.e., "HD MSTR Audio", "DOLBY True HD" or "Dolby D" or "DTS 96/24", etc. I'm assuming if your Oppo is set to LPCM, your AVR will display "Multichannel" or "LPCM or PCM". BTW, my Oppo is set to Bitstream, when I play 5.1 WAV files, my AVR displays "Multichannel".

Editorial: I'm indifferent to the way things are encoded...lossless digital files are bit for bit to the studio master, whether it's DTS HD Master audio or LPCM (lossless bit for bit) they are essentially the same...there is enough capacity on BD discs to include LPCM by default...I'm not sure what you gain (audio wise) by having a bit for bit master encoded to something other than LPCM.

How does the Gracenote feature work? i.e. What button do you press on the remote to get the Gracenote info to be displayed?
post #8159 of 16420

Does anyone know if DLNA streaming of audio/video data(lossy or not) is error-free? Does the DLNA standard include or allow for error correction on the receiver end?

I think I remember that there is a setup change in the OPPO that will fix your problem. Maybe there is something in the FAQ about it, or check with Bob Pariseau.
