Play it again, Sam.

I have no separate setup instructions. Where the -103 and -105 are the same, they are the same. Where they are different we rely on the user's native wit and Bob Pariseau.

Just a quick update on my hanging issues with the BD of The Descendants on the BDP-105:

I got a note from Oppo Support stating they confirmed the issue in their lab and that their engineers hope to fix it in a future firmware update.

A big kudo to Oppo Support for being so responsive on this.

The new edition has some new features that the previous disc did not such as a full suite of audio calibration and evaluation test tones and the ability to calibrate your display in 3D.
I just received my copy yesterday and had a bit of time to play with it last night. This version is much, much more expansive than the previous edition. Lots and lots of callibration panels for both the amatuer and professional. It also has audio callibration for both Dolby and DTS hi-def codecs. My first impressions are that the audio callibration is more user friendly than the AIX disc in that you can easily move about the speakers with a simple push of the button which is very handy if you wish to go back to the previous speaker.

I didn't find any need to adjust my video but the audio did present some differences from the AIX disc I've been using. Most notably the sub was running a bit on the hot side according to this new callibration disc and there were minor differences found in a few of the other speakers. I'm not sure what to make of that or which disc to trust.

Depends.........this version 2 does have allot of new video callibration panels and new, good looking and sounding demonstration material too. The demonstration videos are reference grade utilizing 4 and 5k gear and look spectacular. The audio callibration is definitely more user friendly and instead of a program that you have to rewind if you wish to go back to a particular monitor, this version only moves from speaker to speaker, forward and backward when prompted by the user. This is nice in that you can skip channels or leave it on one longer than the 10 seconds or so alloted by the AIX version. Another item worthy of mention is, unlike the AIX disc that always has the sub running regardless of which speaker you're testing(when set to small), this version only puts energy to the sub when the sub channel is selected. Audio specs are as follows;

7 channels - pink noise 500hz - 2 khz (-30dBFS)
LFE - pink noise 30hz - 80hz (-40dBFS)

These specs hold true for both DTS-HDMA and Dolby True HD. They also give you the option of selecting 5.1 or 7.1

So getting back to your question........ I'd say that if you have 30 bucks layin around, it's worth a try. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else experienced slight variations in some of the speaker volumes, most notably the sub when compared to the AIX disc many of us have been using.

ETA; after further testing I noticed that the AIX test tones seem to contain lower frequencies sent to the speakers than the 500hz on the S&M disc. Maybe this factors in to the variations in speaker volume settings I'm experiencing between these two discs. My center channel now wants a 1.5db boost compared to the LF/RF and I must say that dialogue is better presented now than before for obvious reasons. My surrounds also received slight .5db to 1.5db adjustments using this S&M disc and it does seem slightly better balanced than before. This was really evidenced playing concert blu-rays and 5.1 SACDs.

First post, but long time lurker

I just received my Oppo BDP-105EU (multiregion/multizone) and very happy with it.

Still in the process of setting it up, and I don't have high-end HT gear yet.

Something I did notice is that the player seems to attenuate the audiolevel when connecting to HDMI1 IN (on the back)
Had this issue when connecting my Humax IHDR-5200C Cable Settopbox. I need to set the TV volume (a Panasonic TX-P55VT50) at 80-100 to get the same soundlevel as when I connect the Humax directly to the TV and set the volume to 40-60.

Anyone else come across something similar?

Running FW version 10XEU-38-1220
post #5263 of 10257
I have the 103 and have my cable box plugged into the HDMI in the back and the volume level is also depressed. Because of that I have been using the optical for audio when using the cable box as my HDMI1 goes to my TV and HDMI2 to my prepro.
post #5264 of 10257
I'll run a couple more tests when I get home.
- Try the PS3 on the HDMI1 IN (back)
- Try the PS3 and Humax on the HDMI/MHL IN (front)

I'll also compare the volume output from the Oppo with the PS3 for DVDs and Blu-rays. Maybe the HDMI output level of the Oppo is standard lower than other components.

I've already played around with the Fixed/Variable volume settings and the type of audiostreams, but that didn't seem to make any difference.

@jima4a, did you notice this depressed volume since a firmware upgrade, or has it always been there? If it's a firmware issue Oppo will be able to resolve it no doubt.
post #5265 of 10257
Me three!! I have noticed the depressed volume coming out of Oppo's hdmi 1 output the first time I used it. I was feeding the Oppo native video out of my Motorola 7232 dvr/stb (Verizon Fios) and immediately noticed I had to turned the volume much higher on my tv to get the same level as opposed to feeding the motorola stb directly to my tv. Decreased volume was present in both the current and beta releases of the 105 firmware. Actually, due to a nasty malfunction of the Oppo video when feeding my cable box to the Oppo(techs are well aware of this issue, and are trying to resolve it asap), I currently am bypassing the Oppo's hdmi in back connection, and feeding my motorola stb into my tv. I really didn't mind this decreased volume (in fact, I thought it was an improvement to my current setup) because my motorola stb's hdmi volume output is way too high, and there's no way to make it go lower. I've tried all the internal audio settings in my stb(fixed/variable/dynamic range), but none change it. My tv's average volume, when it gets its video/audio from my motorola stb, is between 5-12 (and my tv can go up to 100 max volume). My tv's volume level, when my stb was fed into my Oppo, is around 25-30, which IMO, is more logical.

post #5266 of 10257
Hello,
I am connecting an Oppo BDP-105 to a Mcintosh MX121 via Balanced inputs. I asked this question in the Audyssey thread and got my answer on the A/D to D/A conversion neccessary when applying audyssey to the balanced input of the MX121. My question to this group is as follows:

When playing 24/192 Flac files using the USB-DAC of the Oppo via the analog balanced connections to the MX121:

1- when the signal goes through the A/D and then D/A conversion necessary for Audyssey, is the 24/192 sample and bit depth altered when using the analog connection? Is the sample rate now less than what was decoded by the Oppo and sent to the MX121 using the balanced connection?
2- Does anyone here own an MX121 and would know if during the A/D conversion is the sample rate reduced to 48hz or 44.1 hz after dgitization?
3- Is it recommended to apply Audyssey to the analog connection or should I just go digital at this point if I want to use room correction?

thank you.

Release date: May 3, 2013
Category: Latest Official Release
Main Version: BDP10X-50-0422
Loader Version: 6U0900 or 7B1000 (BDP-103), 7B1000 (BDP-105)
Sub Version: MCU103-05-0916 (BDP-103), MCU105-04-01113 (BDP-105)

Release Notes:

This release is for the OPPO BDP-103 and BDP-105 Blu-ray Disc players.

Special Notice:
  1. Once this firmware version is installed on the player, you will not be able to revert back to any previous official or public beta firmware. There will be no problem upgrading to any future official or beta firmware release.
  2. Due to the extensive changes in this major firmware update, it is required that the user performs a "Reset Factory Defaults" operation after the firmware is installed. Please write down your special settings before doing this, and remember to re-apply your settings and adjust the proper volume level (if applicable) before you play any content. You may experience stability issues if this step is not performed.
  3. The new decoder firmware supplied by our chip vendor tightens the validation check for the AVCHD file format. If the files in the BDMV folder do not fully comply with the AVCHD specification, the folder will not play. (For example, if the files are from a disc backup instead of an original AVCHD recording, the player will reject it.)

This version is based on the latest Public Beta release version BDP10X-50-0323B. Comparing to the previous Official release version BDP10X-38-1220, the major changes included in this version are:


1. Added support for Direct Stream Digital (DSD) file playback from local storage. The DSD files can be either stereo or multi-channel. Both the DFF and the DSF formats are supported. (The channel mapping error reported in the beta firmware that affects PCM conversion of multi-channel DSD file has been corrected in this official release.)
2. Added support for CUE file playback. This function can be applied to music files on local storage and supported audio formats include FLAC, WAV, APE and MP3.
3. Added a feature that allows the creation of playlists while accessing music files from local USB storage. When navigating these music files, pressing the OPTION button will bring up a menu with a prompt to either "Add to playlist" or "Goto playlist". The created playlist file is stored within the local USB storage, inside "OPPO_Media_Info/playlist".
4. Added support for the AIFF audio format. (Standard AIFF files are supported. AIFF files with AIFF-C/sowt encoding generated by Mac OS X are not supported.)
5. Added support for the ExFAT file system.
6. Added additional Crossover Frequency selections (50, 70, 130, 140 and 160Hz) in "Setup Menu"->"Audio Processing"->"Crossover".
7. Added a feature that allows the user to decide which mode (Auto, Film and Video) to use when performing video de-interlacing. This can be set in "Setup Menu"->"Video Setup" -> "HDMI Options"->"De-interlacing Mode".
8. Added DMR Seek capability, so the user can drag the progress bar on the DMC side and adjust the media file playback progress on the player.
9. Resolved the HDMI high bit-rate (HBR) audio loss issue with Yamaha RX-V673, V773, A820 and A1020 AV Receivers. Customers have reported that when sending DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD signals in "Bitstream" mode through HDMI to these Yamaha receivers, any signal interruption (resolution change, source selection, etc.) will cause Yamaha to display "Audio Decoder OFF" on the front panel and produce no sound from the speakers. This issue has been resolved.
10. Resolved a recently reported FLAC file playback issue. Some FLAC files made from the latest version of the EAC (Exact Audio Copy) software tool could not be played on the BDP-103/105 players. This issue has been resolved.
11. Improved the down-mixing algorithm for the BDP-105's headphone output. This results in better volume and sound staging when playing certain multi-channel audio sources.
  • This change takes advantage of the main audio DSP (digital signal processor) that is normally assigned to the multi-channel analog output. When headphones are connected, the multi-channel analog output is muted and the DSP is temporarily reconfigured for stereo down-mixing, and its output is routed to the headphone amplifier. Please do not try to adjust the player's audio processing settings while the headphones are plugged in, as these settings are only temporarily used and will be restored to the user's original settings when the headphones are removed.
12. Added a feature that allows the adjustment of the audio delay time within the range of -100ms to +100ms. This can be set in "Setup Menu"->"Audio Processing" -> "A/V Sync", and the delayed time will be applied to all output terminals including HDMI 1 and 2, Coaxial, Optical, and 7.1 outputs (including the Stereo outputs of the BDP-105).
  • The actual audio delay effect might be different for each of the output terminals due to the different audio process algorithms and signal paths used for each output. Please adjust this setting based on the actual output terminal in use.
  • The negative adjustment values are for cancelling out the audio delay that the player automatically applies. Depending on the video source and the time it takes to process the video, the main decoder chip automatically applies an audio delay in order to optimize audio video synchronization. The negative manual settings reduce the automatic audio delay, while the positive manual settings apply additional delay. Any negative value setting beyond the player's automatic delay will be treated as completely cancelling the automatic delay. For example, if the "A/V Sync" value is manually set to -100ms and for the current video source the player applies a 70ms automatic audio delay, the final result is that the 70ms audio delay gets cancelled and the audio is not delayed at all. It is not possible to put audio ahead of video using this setting.
  • For content sent through HDMI IN, the "A/V Sync" adjustment only works with positive values.
13. Resolved the brief audio pop issue found on the 7.1 and Stereo audio outputs. This popping noise could happen when the player is processing content from a television cable box (through the HDMI inputs), and when channels are switched on the cable box. This issue has been resolved.
14. Added basic support for a USB keyboard. Some of the supported keys and their functions are:
  • Numerical keyboard: if Num Lock is turned on, functions as Numerical buttons; if Num Lock is turned off, functions as navigation buttons ("2", "4", "6", "8").
  • ARROW buttons (UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT): functions as navigation buttons.
  • HOME button: functions as HOME button.
  • END button: functions as STOP button.
  • Page Up/Down buttons: functions as PAGE UP/DOWN buttons.
  • ESC button: functions as RETURN button.
  • ENTER button: functions as ENTER button.
  • SPACE button: insert a space between characters on the soft keyboard.
15. Improved compatibility with some cable TV boxes, especially from Motorola. Customers have reported that HDMI handshake failures (such as blank green screens, flickering images, and frequent audio drops) could happen when these TV boxes were connected to the HDMI IN port (Front and Back). This issue has been significantly improved in this firmware. (We are aware of an occasional frame drop and audio/video synchronization issue that may still happen when accepting 480i, 576i or 1080i signals from certain cable boxes, and are working to resolve it in a future firmware version.)
16. Improved the support for large capacity external hard drives. The maximum size for a single partition can be up to 16 TB when using GPT partition table and NTFS or ExFAT file system.
17. Improved the digital audio compatibility with the Apple Airport Express (2nd Generation). Customers have reported that frequent audio dropouts were heard on BDP-105's analog audio outputs (both 7.1 and Stereo) when accepting a digital audio signal from the Airport Express 2's optical audio out. With this firmware, the audio dropouts have been eliminated or significantly reduced.
18. Removed a limitation in "Audio Processing"->"Speaker Configuration", that turns off the SBL and SBR speakers automatically when the Center speaker is set to "Off". However, if the SL and the SR speakers are set to "Off", the SBL and the SBR speakers will still be muted.
19. General disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.[/list]

Special Note: This firmware will fix issues related to Netflix streaming in the previous 50-0323B Firmware and will also make it more stable in general. Highly recommend using this firmware if you are a heavy Netflix user.
post #5268 of 10257
Hello All,

I have a BDP-95 that I've barely used... maybe I've watched 10 movies, and maybe played 10 CD's since I got it. I absolutely love it, however.

Just recently, I've updated my digital music library by deleting all of my old MP3s and re-downloading all of my CD's into Apple Lossless format. I therefore have an Apple TV in my setup that connects to my computer and gives me access to my entire music library.

My question is simply this... can I connect my Apple TV to the Oppo BDP-105 via an optical cable, and leverage the killer DAC within, to now play my entire library?

If the answer is, indeed, "Yes"... would it be worth selling my BDP-95 and getting a brand new BDP-105?

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Chris

Yes you can do this, and you can also playback AIFF files directly through the player. As fat as the upgrade is concerned, I will let someone else answer that.

Hi. I apologize for asking again. Does anyone have answers or recommendations for me? Thank you.

Is this going to be for the UK too?

I think I'm going to be using Handbrake a lot more often. I just tested it, converting a Blu-Ray to an mkv and was able to keep the DTS-HD MA soundtrack. It took just under an hour, but the Oppo has no trouble playing it.

Also, it might not have anything to do with the new firmware, but my Oppo seems more reliable at finding and playing files on my networked computers now.

For the EU models you must look here http://www.oppo-bluray.co.uk/customer-services/bdp-103-105eu/ and be patient a little bit.

No doubt that there will be a EU version of this firmware soon. I guess they were in a hurry to replace the last official stable and all the distributors will have to update the oppos now before selling.

An A/D conversion is going to introduce loss.
On some processors, the HDMI handling could also introduce issues.
The only sensible answer is let the your ears be e judge.

Do you prefer Audyssey to a pure analog?
Do you prefer no extra A/D to HDMI on your system?

You an get opinions but I would say, let your ears be the judge.

When playing 24/192 Flac files using the USB-DAC of the Oppo via the analog balanced connections to the MX121:

1- when the signal goes through the A/D and then D/A conversion necessary for Audyssey, is the 24/192 sample and bit depth altered when using the analog connection? Is the sample rate now less than what was decoded by the Oppo and sent to the MX121 using the balanced connection?
2- Does anyone here own an MX121 and would know if during the A/D conversion is the sample rate reduced to 48hz or 44.1 hz after dgitization?
3- Is it recommended to apply Audyssey to the analog connection or should I just go digital at this point if I want to use room correction?

thank you.
Questions 1 and 2 are best answered in the AVR / Processor forum as the answers are going to be specific to the McIntosh unit you own. If there isn't already an owner's thread for the MX121, I'd suggest starting one and asking your questions there.

The answer to your 3rd question is a matter of personal taste, taking your room acoustics into account. If you've got a really bad room, Audyssey may significantly improve the sound. If you've got a really good room, you may find the sound better without letting your processor do any processing. My advice is to try it both ways and let your own ears decide.

hi guys

have some music playback idea...

is there any plans, that we will have a ipad/tablet UI screen, instead of viewing from the LCD TV, the remote is useless as I cant navigate through file and folders for music playback

or

can I have a 2nd output LCD monitor, a small one like 7" , so I can navigate from there

It seems like a mix but the better the system the more likely to not prefer Audyssey for music. There are obviously many who prefer it and a couple I have noted that prefer to feed an analog signal and use Audyssey with the extra A to D and then D to A. I totally agree, you have to let your ears decide. I do not like Audyssey for music and actually don't miss it for movies.

Thanks and I totally agree. I do prefer applying audyssey to analog audio from the Oppo but by doing that is the ultimate sound that I am listening to is from the MAC DACs as opposed to Oppo's Sabre DACs. Depending on the processor the A/D conversion could result in down sampling.

Thanks. I think you are correct in that audyssey is significantly improving the sound. But again by applying audyssey I think I am negating the benefits of the Sabre DACs.

Too bad AIFF audio files with sowt generated by Mac os-x are still not supported... Guess the audio from my hd videos shot with my Canon 5d Mark III SLR camera still won't play.. Bummed.

Soon probably. The EU version is usually a few days behind the US version.
