Thanks

Actually, fans increase the amount of dust accumulating inside a device, not the opposite.

You tell me!  I have this newish 7-ft tall rack with fans for cooling but the fans the dirtiest after only about 1-year of operation! The surfaces they blow over trying to cool them down are just as dusty and filthy. Is fan cleaning supposed to be a ritual now?

Hi,

Idid get the same problem Last saturday after an upgrade to the new firmware. After 1 day of anxiety, i finally found that (as indicated in the user manual), the SUB is OFF even after setting it to On, when the FR & FL speaker are set to large. I set them to small, and...sound came back to the SUB !eek.gif
I'll also had to set the level of SUB at +6dB to get decent musicality for my ears...
Hope this will help:p

How do you protect your AV system from surges / spikes coming from the network side when using a wired ethernet connection from your router to your Oppo 105? Currently my AV system is an island with no hard wired connections to my network. The only external connections are the RG-6 cable and the wall 120v which both run through my power center / surge protector first. Have you tried the wireless adapter that comes with the Oppo 105 and if so what are the drawbacks to using WiFi over hard wired? Thanks.

If your rack is enclosed, the fans and rack are designed to take heat out, NOT blow air inside. Are your fans on the top, if so turn them around so they suck air out. Your rack is it 44u high with 4 fans?

So you haven't set up a wired or wireless network interface on the Oppo yet? I would not have bought the Oppo if it were not for its network functionality. I have never heard any audible anomalies from any possible surges/spikes from my wired ethernet cable connected to it. I would not worry the least bit about it. The wireless nework on the 105 requires the supplied wifi dongle. Wired networks will stream data with less dropouts/interference and no data encryption overhead, especially when streaming audio/video files. I always prefer a wired LAN whenever possible. Save the wireless networks for your tablet devices and cell phones.

Well the air comes from the kitchen of course, this is why you blow out the heated air inside the cabinet. There are vents at the bottom of the rack and this is how the fans suck in clean air and blow it out the top. wink.gif

Air has dust and contaminants in it, usually concentrated near the floor.

A lot of contaminants, look at light throughout a window late afternoon when the sun is at a low angle!

Yes, I have 4 front fans all blowing into the rack except the 4th front at the top face  that blows outside. I also have a top side fan that blows out of the rack as well. I also have 2 air-filters at the bottom of the rack and not sure they are effective in their job at all...

Hello everyone. I have some questions to ask regarding oppo 105.

1). I try to play some streaming files either music or films.When i go to network then it shows up some servers that i have setup in windows 8 (Foobar2000,Twonky,Tversity and My account name" `===>I guess this is SMB,right?" ). Now,when i try to open the folders in my account name it shows up some folders "Films,Music,Pictures" then oppo ask me for username,and password to open those folders.I enter both name and password, then i get a message"LOG IN ERROR.PLEASE VERIFY THE USER NAME AND PASSWORD" i do enter them but (I even tried different user names and passwords in case i entered wrong one.still get this error message. Bare in mind i have shared many folders "for everyone just to avoid to login anyware within my network". What am i doing wrong? Is there any workaround to avoid the log in? How do i find out which correct user name and password i have in case i forgot them?

2) Is anyone else who streams from DLNA/SMB music and while browsing folders,the file indexing takes such long time?

3)I face another wierd behavior regarding music tags. Oppo displays wrong tags. FLAC displays as mp3 (not all of them,but many of them) and many mp3 displays as FLAC or WAV and vice versa. Do you guys think that it has anything to do with some plugins in Foobar? And last but not least...

4) playing some movies (streaming DLNA) shows wrong audio format. Not all of them but some of them,I play some that i know they are DTS-MA shows as stereo and even some DTS/ DD displays on AV8801 as stereo, even thow i know those movies are the right audio formats e.g DTS-MA/DTS/DD/TrueHD.
When i play same the same files from my PC with VLC Media Player then it shows the right format except DTS-MA shows as DTS and Dolby TrueHD shows as Dolby digital on my AV8801 (because those formats passing through optisk from my computer) but it displays the right audio format.


I hope someone of you guys could shade some light to my questions.I would appreciate that alot.

Thanks in advance.

Regards Meffy
post #6973 of 10200
^ Hello Meffy. Unfortunately, Oppo doesn't support SMB with Windows 8. Customers have been asking for this for quite some time now. You'll have to try a dlna server sw for playing your audio/video files.

As far as flac displaying as mp3 or mp3 displaying as wav or flac, I have not seen that anomaly with my setup. I use dbPowerAmp cd ripper to convert my cd's to flac format.

Not sure how to answer this one,rolleyes.gif Clean your house more often, install a filter on the vents, install an ORECK inside the cabinet, mount your rack from the ceiling. wink.gif I just tried to explain how a concealed cabinet is supposed to work. Is Buffalo still on fire??? tongue.gif

Sounds like you are on the right track. Here in Canada, in the summer we put a couple bags of ICE in front of a fan, Instant air conditioner No worries in da winter biggrin.gif.

I'm the one who isn't sure how to answer this one. MY house is clean. I know it isn't as clean as the 0.1 Class Clean Room I used to work in. I'm not the one who is blowing dirty air over my components. You can vacuum all day long and your floor will still give off dust.

Maybe you live in a 0.1 Class Clean room environment up there. Good for you.

Yes dust is all around us even after you vacuum there is still some dust you might not see it but there is! Unless you live in a "clean room" environment and wear full body suit with goggles there is dust. Most of house dust is dead skin and hair the way smile.gif

You do realize that if you position the fans on the bottom of the rack, blowing in cooler air from the floor, heat rises toward the top and convection lets the heat escape, assumimg there is somewhat of an opening at the top for the heat to escape. Install a couple micro fiber filters, and clean them often.

What I am already using:

- Balanced XLR outputs to the balanced inputs on my preamp (for 2 channel)
- Built in 7.1 surround decoder, volume control, RCA outputs directly to amps (for Multi-channel Movies and music)
- Digital / DAC inputs (for legacy devices)
- Direct USB connection to a hard drive array (for MP3 and lossless encoded music)

I'm not worried about audible anomalies. I am worried about surges (from computer equipment switching power supplies going bad) and spikes (from power and cable lines entering the building). My current surge / spike protector has protection for the wall current and the RG-6 cable from the cable company and a $1M protected equipment warranty - but not RJ45. If I hard wire my Oppo to my network router I will bypass ALL of that protection by allowing surges / spikes from both power and cable to enter from the Ethernet cable. I am worried about it and you should be too - I spent way too much money and protected my system the best that I could to bypass it for network connection. If I do decide to connect to the network I guarantee it will be via WiFi.

You could always use fiberoptics to electrically isolate your A/V equipment from the rest of your network, if you're concerned about equipment damage. I'm not sure what exactly is available for inline isolators, but there are plenty of switches available with fiber ports. Set one such switch up in your A/V rack and another near your router and connect them together using the fiber ports. It wouldn't be exactly cheap, but it wouldn't be crazy expensive either. And it would be a LOT better than relying on a wireless connection.

If you're worried, which sounds like you are, then buy an RJ-45 surge suppressor. Tripp Lite has one, along with a whole bunch of other companies. Very inexpensive. Why you would want to stick an antenna to the back of your high-end audio component is beyond me.....are you looking to pick up any random RFI to listen to?

...."And it would be a LOT better than relying on a wireless connection".....+100!!!

Just received the 105 today, coming from the 95, which replaced the 83 nuforce edition.

I hope they dont come up with an oppo-115, as this is getting costly...

Setup was fast and i've installed the latest beta to use with the ipad v2 software. This is very usefull as it is impossible to navigate thru the usb without a display device..

I've downloaded the dsf version of some 2L recordings that i have on sacd/BD and will report back on my impressions.

My marantz 8003 can accept DSD but i will use the 7.1 analogs in pure audio mode.

Any of you getting lip sync errors on your player? Audio ahead of video. Through hdmi. It has to be my oppo not my prepro because my new Directv box is about spot on. And the same problem existed with my Integra dhc 9.9.

Could the differing length of hdmi cables cause this? Hdmi out of hdmi 1 to projector is 3 meters. Hdmi out of hdmi2 to Foundation is half meter.

I know I read somewhere that you should only use 6foot hdmi cables at the least. But I thought that was because of the handshake or something similar to that. I have no handshake problems. The Foundation is a beast with that intelligent hdmi switching.

Questions on networking/streaming any pundits please pitch in.
I can play the content on my PC by using network and using XBMC Media server. It shows up as file listing and I dig in the files and can play. So far its good.
In xbmc I can push the content to a networked device. XBMC recognizes oppo 105 and sends the content. XBMC is running and pushing it to Oppo 105. But Oppo doesn't play.
What input I have to be on oppo 105 to play in this setup?
Second is there any quality ( audio, Video) difference using this method (XBMC or Media Server0 vs attaching a storage drive and playing from that drive directly. If I am not wrong we are using oppo DACs in either way.

That's a network connection so the Input selection doesn't apply.

No, unless the server is transcoding to some lossy format.

HDMI cable length differences won't cause audio/video sync errors. The signal travels the HDMI cable at the speed of light, so you'd need MILES of length difference to notice anything.

If you've not done so already you should update the firmware in your 105. I recommend you download the Public Beta 0808B firmware from the OPPO web site for install via a USB stick. (The Public Beta firmware is not offered for network install). Get it here:

http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-105/blu-ray-BDP-105-Support.aspx

IMPORTANT NOTE: After installing either the Official 0719 firmware or the Public Beta 0808B firmware you need to do a Reset Factory Defaults for proper operation. On the first power up after the install a Recommended Reset will be offered, and that's all you need. That one will preserve your network settings and your Internet app login credentials. Jot down the rest of your settings prior to the install for easy re-entry.

If the new firmware doesn't fix your problem, it's possible that the video processing time in your projector is great enough that some audio delay is necessary to compensate. The A/V Sync setting in the OPPO may help. To set that, use content of known sync correctness. For example, the A/V Sync chart on Disney's "WOW World of Wonder", Blu-ray, calibration disc.

Some displays increase their video processing time excessively when fed 1080p/24 video input. You could also try setting 1080p/24 Output OFF so that 1080p/60 is used instead to see if that helps.

Thanks Bill.

I am not sure why Oppo is not playing from XBMC when I pushed the media from my PC.

"That's a network connection so the Input selection doesn't apply."

While I am playing a Blue Ray Disc on Oppo and I started my xbmc and pushed the content to oppo. Would it stop playing BR disc and start playing xbmc in ideal situation? In my case whatever the input on oppo it wouldn't play.

But I can go to network --> it searches for the nodes --> displays my media server --> from there it takes me to file structure --> Then I can select and play.
It is not acting like Digital Media Renderer. It is acting like Digital Media Player.

Basically I am looking to use one of my android devices to use as remote controller for my xbmc library and play the content on PC using oppo internal hardware.
Please shed some light.

This is just a guess. Check this link out: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=UPnP/Client
Did you select the option to allow control of xbmc via UPnP?

I have a 103 and my successful results with XBMC are intermittent. It is the same though when I try playing an audio file with my Denon receiver. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, or does not even appear on the Play Using list. I think it may be an XBMC issue partly. That is a relatively new feature with XBMC, I believe.

Ok thank you Bob. I have got the sync pretty close by using the oppos settings. And the new test disc sold by Oppo. It was at -3 frames on that test. Or 1.55 or something like that. Could my Jvc 4810 be delaying my video? I hadnt heard anyone complain about it in the other forum.
