Please don't make Bob hit his head against the wall again - we need him over in beta test land biggrin.gif.

Who's being loud? Not sure what the big deal is. I suspect that Oppo indeed prioritizes based on consumer feedback. Anyways, I politely sent Oppo a message about the problem, and they promptly sent an email back, said they are aware of the problem and working on it. smile.gif

I am playing an HDCD encoded CD (Aaron Neville "Gospel Roots") and HDCD decoding is turned on in the player. But the Disc Info still says 'Stereo 44.1k 16b'. I thought it would say 'Stereo 44.1k 20b'.  How would i know the 105 is sending 20-bit stream to my pre-pro(Anthem D2v)?

I did the latest firmware update via internet and now my lip sync issue on the optical input is back. Any suggestions?

Did you do the Recommended Reset after the install?

The disc info refers to the data coming OFF the disc. HDCD is 2.0 LPCM 44.1 KHz 16-bit data matrix encoded to contain 20-bit data dynamic range (at the expense of raising the noise floor). What's coming OFF the disc is unchanged by whether HDCD decoding is engaged or not.

Is the HDCD light also lit up?

Interesting ... i thought i was getting 20-bit data off the disk with HDCD turned on.

Don't know about a light, but the main display highlights the "HDCD" title. Is that what you were referring to?

Oh man, yes I did, and a nano second after I pressed OK on that, I had changed my mind. Don't tell me that is the reason I'm back to square one?

^ Don't fret. The Recommended Reset is a "good thing". But it does mean you need to go and re-establish your previously selected "best" settings for, e.g., audio/video output format.

Oh, well yeah but the previous firmware had fixed the lip sync issue and now this latest firmware brought the issue back..

Check your settings again. It's likely you've changed something with realizing it (e.g., now using Bitstream audio output instead of LPCM).

Will do. Thx Bob.

HDCD is a clever trick for fitting 20 bits of range into 16 bits of sample at the expense of higher noise floor. It's kind of analogous in spirit (not in implementation) to Dolby noise reduction on tape, where the signal was manipulated one way when recording then unmanipulated back on playback.

Why doesn't Oppo add an audio lip sync feature to the menu the way the WDTV has implemented it?
post #2807 of 10176
Does the 105 crash hard drives if they are connected/disconnected without powering down the unit? This happened all the time with the 95, and I had to rebuild the boot record on several drives. This also prevented me from plugging in a full blown NAS to the USB port.

We can't help you with that. You need to ask OPPO.

In my case, as in many others this would not help as the audio is behind the video which the Oppo does not even receive.

Trying to understand the lip-sync issue - haven't experienced it but I have not watched many videos with my Oppo, mostly music. Is there a problem with sync only when using Split Mode HDMI, or does this happen when watching video material over a single HDMI port? Or is it with HDMI video / analog audio? Sorry if I should know this - I have followed this topic from the beginning - maybe I missed the details on this issue.

Thanks.

Not sure I understand what you mean by the audio is behind the video and Oppo not receiving. How is your Oppo configured as a source?

Oh I see. Well even with that situation, it would still be beneficial to have an audio delay option in the menu. Most media players out there have options to adjust by 100ms increments. In your case, this would still require you to go within the Oppo menu first to set before watching content, and you would have to experiment to get the timing right with the audio. Most of the content on my media server is usually off by 300ms, and since I know this I have to set this for most files I playback. I know that would not be ideal, but better that than having any delay at all. The ideal solution would be a proper firmware fix smile.gif
post #2813 of 10176
I can see I am not the only one having trouble understanding the A/V sync issues. Maybe Bob can net it out for us. Further delay of the already delayed audio will not help with darkphader's issue ^^^^^ though, and I don't see how the Oppo could possibly fix that.

I checked all the settings. No good. I called Oppo and they said they are aware of that and trying to fix the issue,,,again...

Can someone confirm for me if there is any difference in 2 channel audio quality based on the below input choices (and if there would be a #1 preference):

HDMI In
Optical In
Coaxial In

Thanks in advance

Using as a pre/pro is working awesome. I'm between 30-75 on digital voume control going into Emotive UPA-1s and focal electras. That's on the RCA jacks. I tried balanced cables and it seemed too hot, I was going from 10 - 35 on volume as I recall.

Sound quality is awesome. I can crank this system up very high and it remains clear.

A few problems

My Motorola Comcast box does not connect reliably via HDMI, it toggles between working and a green screen every 10 seconds. I hope they fix this soon.
Some flac files will cause the player to crash or operate strangely. If I re-encode the flacs with foobar 2000 it fixes them.
The remote is OK, It's not that snappy, sometimes you have to hold buttons down longer than natural. i don't like where the backlit button is and the volume control. I wish companies would use sides of remote for some functions. This is just a minor thing though.

A major recommendation for BubbleUPNP on Android device. I can control oppo without the projector on. And maintain playlists and snappy and robust interface. I run it with a Logitech Media Server running on the network server.

Just wondering how you can control with the Logitech server. Do you select it in the Oppo Home Menu?

Not really. The audio is already delayed, delaying it any further would only make it worse.

Oppo could fix it by not delaying the audio in the first place :-) It's a bug. My ages old Outlaw 950 pre-pro syncs perfectly with no delay.

Optical and coax should be the same. HDMI in can handle higher quality lossless and high bitrate audio (stereo from SACD or DVD-A, for instance) that cannot be sent through either optical or coax.

they had fixed it back in Dec with a Firmware. But the latest Firmware reversed it back to the delay again..
