Official OPPO BDP-103 Owner's Thread - Page 285

post #8521 of 16383
Hello… I just got my Oppo 103 and so far am very pleased, only got it yesterday so installed it and did some playing around, picture seemed to be much improved over the standard LG offering I was using before. I do have a question I hope someone can help with, lots of info on the forum and in the FAQ which I am still working though so if the answer is already out there just a point in the right direction would be very much appreciated.

I have a non 3D receiver (Onkyo SR674) and an Infocus IN72 projector (should get my new Epson 5020 next month), so cabled the Oppo HDMI out directly to the projector and then took my receiver HDMI out to the Oppo back HDMI in port. This way I can still watch my movies from my PC media player and legacy UK DVD player through the receiver. I also needed the Oppo for its 7.1 RCA out as the Onkyo SR674 needs that to drive my 7.1 speakers and will not do it correctly if using digital optic out of the Blu-ray. Longer term my plan was to have the receiver connected to one of the two HDMI ports on the projector and put the Oppo on the second HDMI using the Epson.

My question would be, is this the right solution and a supported one at that? I am far from being an expert in this area and the fact that you can set-up speakers/picture on the receiver and the Oppo and also do picture adjustment on the projector makes my head hurt…. So I may have got this connectivity logic all messed up!

I would also be very interested in any links or pointers to being able to rip Blu-ray (2D and 3D) for play back on the Oppo. I am old school DVD so I have that sorted but seems like Blu-ray changes everything lol. When I rip my DVD’s to my media server I do it at full quality and want the same from the Blu-ray, not interested in compressing or anything like that which I thought was the ISO type of rip but not sure how to use that with the Oppo or if I should even try.

Thanks for any help!

Just got my 103 and want to use ripped Blu-ray ISO files, is there a link with more detail on how to do this (step by step) with the AVCHD extension thingy so it works with the Oppo?

Hi,

I'm a new owner of my first Oppo, and this is my first post here.
I've been trying to find an answer to a question I have in this forum, but can't seem to find it. Please excuse me if this has been addressed:

Does the latest firmware update for the Oppo BDP-103 strip out the ability to play SACD-R?

It is been mentioned already, SACD-R playability removed in the last firmware (original SACDs still work). You can extract tracks as dsf files from the SACD-R, they are playable with new firmware.

You need to extract ISO content somewhere on HD with WinRAR, UltraISO or similar program, run the program to make content AVCHD compatible and create ISO again (IMGBurn is great for this)

The OPPO Digital web site is now showing Refurbished BDP-103 players available!

http://www.oppodigital.com/products.asp

This is the first such offering since the BDP-103 launched. OPPO's Refurbished players come with a modest discount -- basically the only time OPPO discounts their players. The normal situation for their Refurbished players is that they also come with a warranty equivalent to a new unit warranty.

At the moment, the web site SAYS precisely that, but then details it as a 1 year warranty, where in fact the new BDP-103 players come with a 2 year warranty. It looks like that is just a typo and will be corrected shortly -- this is the first time they've posted a Refurbished offer for the new players with standard 2 year warranties, so likely just a copy/paste error. (The option check boxes for the Refurbished purchase DO say a standard 2 year warranty is included in the discounted price.)

If you are interested, don't dawdle. History shows that OPPO's Refurbished players get snapped up in a twinkling.



ETA: The typo noted above regarding the warranty included with the Refurbished BDP-103 has now been fixed on the OPPO Digital web order page. The Refurbished player comes with a 2 year warranty just like the new player.

The 103 is temporarily out of stock / backordered. I'll guess that Oppo just wanted to have something to sell.
post #8529 of 16383
My guess would be they've just gotten more efficient at turning around Refurbs faster.

Good catch, thx for posting Bob ! smile.gif

Not a bad deal at all for someone wanting to purchase an Oppo BDP directly from the manufacturer and save a few bucks.. I notice though that its only available for US domestic orders, can't order this one from Canada.. oh well I just got my new 103 so I'm just sayin' biggrin.gif

Will refurbs continue to come out or will they be gone after a finite period? I'm not familiar with how Oppo handles refurbs, and I am looking to get a 103 within the next month. I'll bite the bullet now if the refurbs historically disappear after a short window.
post #8532 of 16383

From most of the comments I've read the past few pages, it seems the May 3rd firmware release seems to be a dud of sorts, not fixing or exacerbating most issues and problems people had with the former beta and earlier firmware. This, I find a complete surprise and out of character for Oppo, at least as far as their FW releases are concerned. Am I correct in my assessment so far?

There is no way to predict, but it seems likely that there will be more at some point in the future. If more are available, that opportunity may not match your schedule.

Thanks for the info. Decisions decisions.

I have no problems with the new firmware. It works fine.

This is just to report that the multi-region mod (JBV Digital) of my 103EU is (so far) working properly after update of the player with the latest official fw release.

Bill, Roku has Netflix but no dedicated Netflix button. My old Samsung had it too and no dedicated button. So I'm curious about this relationship with Oppo that's so close as to require a dedicated button, but not close enough to have the app working properly.

But I do stream YouTube and Pandora on occasion with no issues. My main problem was the lip sync issues between my Oppo and my Pioneer Elite SC07. Decided to wait for the official release instead of installing the beta and so far so good for me. I can't speak about the other issues but the lip sync problems have been solved for me with this update.

The update just gave my 103 the lipsync issue. Oh well ... Glad it comes with a feature to set the sync rate.

^^^^ What are the problems with the Netflix app? I just hooked up my 103 last night, streamed an episode of "Hemlock Grove" - the Oppo worked pretty much like my PS3 does with Netflix. Are people having problems with it?

If you really need to know you should ask OPPO and see if they can tell you.

I have no motive to mislead you on such a minor point (or even on a major one).

Netflix's rules may develop over time, and it is possible that different vendors are subject to different contract requirements.

I am still using the latest beta. My Motorola STB is working fine through the hdmi input, now that I have it set to lpcm 2.0 to avoid the 5.1 to 2.0 to 5.1 claymation issues on 1080i. Pwiss reported even more audio an visual sync issues with the latest update so I am playing it safe and not doing the latest official.

A friend of mine has 103 and would like more streaming ability. Would you stick users recommend just the stick for the 103 or a Roku 3? Same price so its kinda fielders choice. Seems like plugging in the stick when you need it would be less hassle however.

Thanks.

Your friend should be able to get the stick for 49.99. I think you have to put some purchase info in when you order off of Oppo's website, however.

I just set up my 103 last night; and also bought the Roku streaming stick. Can I just the plug the stick in/out as needed, or is it best to leave it in the player all the time?

It takes a couple of minutes for the stick to boot up when you insert it. Just be aware.

I leave it in all the time works perfect so far.

The Stick will force the Oppo into "quick start" mode, which means it will always be on. (the Stick).
Setting the player back to energy saver mode will power down the Stick each time the player is turned off, requiring a 2-min boot for the Stick when the player is turned on again. Also good to note that if your leave the Stick streaming and switch the player back to "Blu-Ray Player" mode, the Stick continues streaming.

Those are the main considerations, your usage and preference should rule your choices. If you don't use the Stick a lot, or if its in danger of getting knocked if left in the player, consider removing it when not in use.
