I bought a mod kit for the BDP-105 from bluraychip.dk. However it did not come with instructions. I tried to follow the instructions online for the BDP-95, but when I take the top cover off, it is not clear which circuit board(s) should be removed. Has anyone gotten this mod working in their BDP-105 and can offer some advice? I've tried contacting bluraychip.dk but have not gotten any response to my queries.

I have able to play via foobar using the View | UPnP controller.
I can find other rendered in the preferences Playback | Output selection, but I never find the BDP-105 there.

I went with J River because it is a polished program with an excellent iPad app.

I'm using this kit I got from Amazon - Xantech DL85K LCD Proof Designer Dinky Link IR Receiver Kit. I have both the Oppo and Marantz 7701 working from it. You can see how it sets up in this diagram: http://www.xantech.com/Infrared/Infrared/LCDCFLProofKits/

For devices like the Oppo, you don't need an emitter, just a mono mini-jack(3.5mm) male-to-male cable from the connecting block (emitter port) to the Oppo.

I have the same issue with Playback | Output and the View menu doesnt contain a UPnP controller option:

Go to the Foobar.org site Components page and download the "UPnP/DLNA Renderer, Server, Control Point".

Thanks! But that looks expensive when I only need to get one device extended--the BDP-105 and nothing else (no TVs, receivers, etc.). Does anyone know of a cheaper kit that actually works? The one I got from Amazon that doesn't work was about $10.

I think I'll try it with Windows Media Player until I find something limiting/maddening about it, or until someone pipes up with "dont use that POC, use this instead..."

You can use WMP - at least for trying it out. Right-click on a song and you should see a "Play to..." option where you can select the Oppo from a list and the song will start playing on the Oppo.

The problem with WMP to me is that it wants to do everything in WAV or WMA encoding - I suppose there is probably a FLAC plug-in. It is not a bad media manager if you can get it to come to terms with a file format that works for you.

I've got it installed but not working right yet. I may or may not have to reinstall it. I haven't had a chance to troubleshoot it yet. To install it you have to move the circuit board on the right (facing the front of the player) because the mod installs on the circuit board under it. You don't have to remove the board just remove the screws that hold it to the chassis and the screws for the inputs attached to it on the back and then move it enough to get to the circuit board underneath. That lower board is the same as the board for the 103 and you can see a picture on the bluraychip.dk website for installation on a 103. I believe a couple of people here have it working. I still don't know why mine isn't working but, as I said, haven't been able to troubleshoot yet. I'm making major changes to my whole system and the Oppo is only part of the changes.

You probably only bought a receiver if it was $10, but I don't think there's anyway to make that work by itself. I searched and read on various sites trying to sort out how to do this, and while it seems expensive, it was one of the cheapest options I found. Also shop around - the prices vary wildly even on Amazon from different sellers. There is a cheaper kit with a less fancy receiver. And you can also buy the individual pieces and put it together and that may be cheaper too. I paid about $100 for the kit and I went with a kit because I had no idea what I was doing or how it worked. I see some kits on Amazon from other brands that are around $40 - they may work just fine - check the reviews.

Actually, my laptop is part of a work domain and WMP needs a homegroup to offer the PlayTo option, so it's a no go (my domain will not allow me to create a homegroup, and none are defined).

+1 for Xantech. Works great. Use their emitters, blocks, etc. for all of our equipment in the rack.

Thanks again Rich--I'm getting close.

I've got the UPnP Renderer, Server, Control Point option installed. When I select View > UPnP Controller, the only option available is the ... button (typically Browse on Widnows). The only available option on that menu is Configure UPnP Controller. When clicked, it displays the Preferences Controller (which can also be accessed directly from File > Preferences) as shown:



Rich and others, get me to the streaming holy land by helping me figure which of these setting needs configured to talk to my oppo--I'm not seeing it. Also, does my 105 have to be in a specific mode to receive streams (after its initial setup)?

Thanks again everyone for your v-e-r-y appreciated assistance!

I have several posts about how to do this in Foobar if you can look for them. Search for me and renderer?

But under view select uPNP controller then the controller window will pop up and the first thing on it is a pull down for all the renderers it sees so select oppo 105 and have fun. Note you have have to have the uPNP plugin installed obviously which adds a uPNP que window which is where all the music needs to be that can be 'rendered'

That's a long thread on the BDP-83 so can I assume that there is no info there about "pushing" audio to the Oppo as we are doing with the 103/105?

Your pushing the wrong button. You select the long horizontal skinny button that has a black down arrow at the end. The small button with the 3 dots is the wrong button but it will take you to the 'configure upnp controller' option you mentioned.

We direct all the DLNA discussions for OPPO players there, but if DMR is not mentioned in the last few pages then I suspect it hasn't been covered.

Dunno, but I will look.   I believe it is not possible with the 83.

Correct. But that's our thread for all OPPO players, despite the title.

I think every step you need to do has been mentioned on this page. Assuming you want to use foobar anyway...

I'm not sure if this is what you need, but on the OPPO website there is an external sensor made specifically for the Oppo players.
Accessories>>IR Accessories>>IR ES-2 external IR sensor for bdp 93/95/103/105. Costs $29.

As long as you are using an Oppo remote, or a universal remote that is sending the Oppo IR code, it should work.

Hello All

I got my 105 yesterday and been playing with it. I have a quick question using this as a DAC for my Squeezebox Touch. I am running an optical out from SB Touch and into 105. From 105 I am using balanced stereo connection to AV8003 (AV is in pure direct mode). My question is how do I program my Harmony 900 remote to select the Optical as input in Oppo 105. Now I am manually pressing Input on my Harmony 900 remote till it gets there.

Thanks in advance
post #3113 of 10257

So since a few of you have upgraded to the BDP-105 I am wondering those who upgraded from the BDP-95 is the sound better? Do you feel it was worth it!

We have a FAQ article on that: How do I select an INPUT source with a programmable remote?

On the older Harmony One, you could do a sequence: "Input" "7" - for example is what I use to select coax in. But that sequence feature was taken out of the 900 with much disappointment to users who thought they were upgrading their remotes.

You might be able to create/learn a new command to do this - read about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1170063/official-logitech-harmony-900-thread/1530

I really like it, but looking to upgrade to 8801. I will do this by end of march 2013.

Any chance discrete on and off commands are coming? My oppo keeps getting turned off as I select new activities since it's the only component I have that only has a power toggle command.

I've been familiar with how to select inputs for a while now but is there a way to have the oppo input as an option when setting up an activity with the myharmony.com site? It doesn't even come up as an option. I wrote a sequence instead but wondering if logitech is going to work with the new capabilities correctly.

Thanks but I am using jRiver successfully with both the 103 and the 105.
