Official OPPO BDP-105 Owner's Thread - Page 185

post #5521 of 10200
I am using the latest firmware so that is not the issue, I had the beta and then the official firmware, It did this on both

eventually, I get it working but having to turn it on and off multiple times is ridiculous
post #5522 of 10200
Contact Oppo and let them know the exact problems you are having and the drive you are using. They should be able to help you.
post #5523 of 10200
that has already been done and I am getting nowhere with that

what they need is another firmware to solve the problem. I just saw on the UK forum someone else saying they are getting the lockups as well

it mainly happens when you press movie, not music

I have told Oppo this, it is up to them to fix it with Firmware
post #5524 of 10200
I sent this message to Oppo. On my 105 this error is 100% repeatable.

On my 105 there is a glitch concerning the Speaker Configuration Test Tone in the Audio Processing section of the Setup Menu. I am using the 5.1 downmix. Sometimes when selecting either the Surround Left or Surround Right the Test Tone plays from the corresponding Front speaker at the same time it is playing from the Surround speaker. If I turn off the 105 and go back to play the Test Tone the issue does not occur. If I select HDMI - Back (my cable box is connected) as my input and then go back to Home Menu and play the Test Tone the issue reappears.

Got a message back from Oppo already (those guys are quick):

We have confirmed similar issues and will be working on having them fixed through a future firmware release.

The appear to be Blu-Ray audio and should play on any player. I doubt there would be any sort of region coding. But, unless they had access to the master tapes, I would doubt much, if any, improvement in sound over the original vinyl or CD issues.
post #5528 of 10200
Since my Marantz AV8801 is out for repair, I have been using my BDP-105 as a Preamp.
However, the 105 does not have a trigger. So my EE friend found a DC to DC converter to convert USB 5 volts to 12 volts and soldered up a USB driven trigger cable for the Parasound A51.

Works fantastic !

Here is the parts I used:

Supposedly, they sound better 24bit/96! Not available in the US yet
post #5530 of 10200
Just sampling to 24/96 won't improve the sound if you don't have the source. Even then, it might not. There is a real debate whether 24/96 processing can improve old source material (and the items they have that I am familiar with are 40-50 years old). But that is the subject for a different thread.

They are available for pre-order at Amazon Canada so likely it won't be much longer until they are available at Amazon.com

$30 that's expensive for Stereo, I wonder if they really sound that much better!

There is a workaround you can apply short of power cycling the player. In Setup > Audio Processing, find the Stereo Signal setting. It has two choices: DOWN-MIX STEREO and FRONT LEFT/RIGHT. The workaround is to toggle that setting to the alternate choice and back to the one you want.

As you've noted, there are a number of ways to trigger this problem, and toggling the setting will only fix it until you do something that triggers it yet again. I.e., this workaround is temporary.

Good to know. Thanks!

I’m a proud owner of a new BDP-105. So far I’m loving BD and SACD. I am though having an issue with AV lip sync.
I have my HDMI out of my cable DVR straight to my HDTV. From the DVR I have digital coax going into the 105 as the coax in. When I’m watching TV it starts out ok, but the longer I watch a show the voice falls behind the video. I have not installed the latest firmware and plan on doing so tonight and will report back. I’m not sure it will fix my issue. It does mention AV sync options that I can adjust, but if this is floating (meaning changing the longer I watch a show) I’m not sure that setting will help. Anybody having the same issue? Thanks!
post #5536 of 10200
So, I just discovered that I can play DSD files over the network as long as I use a wired connection. I thought we could only play DSD files through a USB drive.

The latest firmware did fix a/v sync issues that I was having. Cable box -> 105 Back HDMI In. HDMI video out -> Plasma TV. Analog Audio Out -> Parasound P7 -> Arcam Alpha P8 (x4)

Ya I'm going to give the firmware a try, but what concerns me is that the only thing going through the 105 is the coax coming from my DVR.

No, it's always been working over SMB. Not DLNA, though. Yet?

OPPO is aware that the A/V Sync issue is still present with the new FW and are working on it in future FW updates.

Why can't DSD (dff/dsf) files be sent via DLNA? What's preventing this limitation from happening? If one can play these types of files on the Oppo via SMB or USB, why can't DSD be sent over a DLNA server? It would seem no different than pushing any other type of audio file to a DMR, such as an Oppo player.

Any one know why I have to activate you tube every time I start the app? This never happened before the latest firmware update. Did I change something in the settings on my reboot that I am not aware of?

Do any DLNA servers offer this file type?

On the player side it would be a small matter of programming, or so I suppose.

Contact OPPO and ask about their plans.

anyone else having the unit lock up when trying to access the hard drive when pressing movie?
I noticed it only happens when you press movie, pressing music always read the drive but you have to press movie in order to view video files

The MinimServer can offer DSD-files but strangely, for the Oppo are that APE files (no matter if DFF or DSF) and rejects to play them. The LUMIN can play the DSD-files, offered from MinimServer. The more from us ask Oppo for UPnP/DLNA support the better.

In addition to all the other issues, does anyone else have skipping chapter issues using the 105 latest firmware when playing DVD/Bluray discs?

I am steadily getting very frustrated with the 105 and have never had as many issues with any dvd/bluray players, even the el cheapo ones, ever!

The growing list of issues:

1. Lipsynch issues are ridiculous - Every time you pause TV, the lipsynch delay setting is lost and you have to switch inputs and come back to have it reset. And the lipsynch delay is inconsistent. Having to bypass the HDMI and the video upscaling and using the optical audio as the workaround defeats the purpose of spending this amount of cash on a media player.

2. Painfully loud high pitched noise coming out of left and right channels when TV is on pause. The player automatically jumps to LPCM 2 channel after a few seconds, and starts emitting this painful noise, even though the TV channel is in 5.1 dolby.

3. Loud pops coming through left and right channels when pausing TV and starting the playback again after a few seconds. Tied to #2 with the auto-switching to LPCM 2 channel.

3. Audio drop outs when watching TV through HDMI. Random but frequent.

4. Audio drop outs when watching DVD. Random and not as frequent as watching TV through HDMI

5. DVDs skipping (Brand spanking new ones that work without any issues on $100 player)

6. DVDs not playing back certain chapters as it will skip over those chapters every time.

On paper the 105 had me very excited and looked to be the dogs bollocks, but in practice the frustrating issues are doing me head in. Time to return the unit and go back to Samsung/Pioneer/Denon?


Grumble!

I am using the HDMI in Back with my TiVo and it occasionally gets out of sync which I can correct by switching channels or cycling the power on the Lumagen to force a handshake.
Oppo is working on that problem.

However, these others are not normal. I would contact Oppo support.

Grumble,

I have none of the issues you do except for some lip sync stuff that I don't notice unless I actually look for it. You seriously should talk to Oppp. Their service is first rate.
post #5550 of 10200
when you are playing a video file and press forward x2 and then you press play, I have heard loud hiss and no sound; I have to stop the file and start playing it again and it works
x3 does not do that and I'm not sure if x1 does it but x2 does it a lot

only they can fix this with firmware
