With the vague description you did provide, it would lead me to believe the player made need repaired, but no way to know for sure without more details.

I am using 3 Western Digital hard drives 1.5 and 2 tbs, the same one I was using the day before, one of them is the new passport size from WD. These HD have all the same videos, family, movies, etc and they work with the Oppo 95 that I a friend of mine has, as checked this morning.

NOTHING WAS CHANGED, I had watched a movie and some home videos the night before from 2 of the different drives involved and it decided to stop working. again, blu ray discs, cd and the same type of hard drives with music play fine, once you hit enter on the highlighted hard drive containing video, the Oppo freezes and the player becomes unresponsive, It can only be turned off. After 2 hours of trying everything with no results, I went ahead and installed the new firmware, I had the beta version which was working fine before yesterday's incident, no changes, the player refuses to play hard drives with video on it.

For the record all the three hard drives in question play flawlessly on my cheapo 3 year old Patriot box office media Player.

in last few days the volume changes quit displaying on the panel - I don't think I have applied the dec firmware update. edit - yes I have 1204 but had it for a few weeks before this changed I believe.

How do you set or unset this? I guess I will reboot next.

later edit to add : I use this as my pre-amp - direct to amps. The volume setting of 1 is too loud on some inputs, such as ROKU > radio streaming or Pandora

When I turned on my 105 this morning, it said there is a new FW update. Does anyone know what this addresses? I have not done the update yet. Thanks and have a Merry Christmas.

Disconnect the drives. Power on the player then wait 1 minute. Connect the USB drive to the player and then wait about 20 seconds. Select Movies. Select the USB drive. Do you experience the same errors?

What format the drives? Are they FAT or NTFS?

If you do a Check Disc on the drive and correct any found errors, do you experience the same errors?

I really love this player, but this is driving me mad! I bought the player especially for use with Ipad so far I'm having major problems using the latest firmware with the Ipad app, my player is constantly crashing, I know for a fact that it is the Ipad app that is causing the problem, when I play my FLAC music files from my hard drive or server everything works great for a round 5 minutes the constantly crashed the 105, I have been testing the app switching it on then off for 10 minutes and everything plays perfect continuously, it's when the Ipad app is running in the background that problems occur, my friend has the 105 and he has the exact same problem. I have contacted OPPO, they are saying that the app is working perfect for them! anyone else having the same problems?

I'm running it on a new iPhone 5S with the latest OS - I've not had this problem. I've even fallen asleep after queuing up some music and letting it play from my listening chair, only to wake up when the phone (on and idle at the App) sides off my lap.

I've also tried on my Android phone and Android tablet; those two, unfortunately don't work as well. The phone crashes as soon as it starts (but it's an old phone and barely capable of running the software), and the Galaxy Tab 7 shows a black background with black txt when I fire up the app...so it's less than useful. I hate my (work) iPhone, but the app seems to be the most stable on it there for me.

Do you have the latest OS for your tablet?

They could not have told you that. They're not being honest with you if this is the case. They should have read their bug report list on their ios app to you. They are fully aware of the issues with their MediaControl HD app. Many users have brought to Oppo's attention that the app is unstable(frequent crashes/lockups), and that it plays back music in your media folders completely out of sequence. The app is slightly more stable when playing back media from an attached usb drive as opposed to a network drive (cifs/smb protocol). I have stopped using that app until Oppo gets their act together and stabilizes/corrects the major playback sequence anomaly. I'm currently using Synology's embedded DLNA media server with my Synology NAS drive, and using a cool/functional IOS app called "8 Player" to push media files to my 105. With this setup, I can leave my tv and my computer off.

I'm having some problems with the auto resume functionality. On the latest firmware and have autoresume set to "on" under the setup menu. I would watch a bluray or cd and i would either turn off the player or hit stop. I turn it on again and it would just go to the menu or track 1. Last night I watched the Bourne Ultimatum and hit stop and turned off the player. Today I turned it on but it just went straight to the main menu. I emailed Oppo earlier and was wondering if anyone else shared this problem.

Most Blu-rays are not automatically resumable. Those with java require programmed support for the feature in the disc itself.

DVDs and Blu-rays without java should resume automatically.

Was this working for you before? Do you know what type of disc Bourne is?

Hmm... that might be the case. I've had luck with CD's but not most of the BD's I own. I do not know what type of disc Bourne is. I think it has been a hit or miss with BD's but the past 2 weeks or so I haven't been able to resume my BD's.

I was keeping a list of Blu-rays without java but gave it up quite a while ago. If you want to pursue this I can try to find it.

Any disc with BD-Live will have java.

A disc with "bonus view" (secondary audio commentary or picture-in-picture) probably does.

Other signs: complicated loading icons or animation, fancy popup displays when paused.

Previously, if you pressed STOP and the player showed "press PLAY to continue" it meant no java. I haven't tested that recently.

Thanks for the insight Bill. I'll chalk it up to the discs being java then. I had the same problem with a Mad Men season 3 BD's which don't seem to have any special functionality

Folks please help me to understand this stereo signal. Down mixed stereo and FL/FR. I have never understood this setting. Or the explanation of this setting.

I have my 105 hooked directly to my amps. I have my front left and right spkrs hooked to the dedicated xlr outs. All the others are hooked to the multichannel rca outs. The way I read the manual I should use FL/FR. Not downmixed stereo in this configuration. But when I select that setting the level drops way down and the bass gets lean. Real lean. So then I select downmixed stereo and everything pops back into place. This is on stereo music.

So the only thing I can think of is I keep interpretating this setting wrong. So can you all please make me understand this setting? Hit me upside the head or something? Thank you in advance.

Try deleting the application and try the MediaControlHD again. We are not experiencing the same errors with our iPad Mini and the BDP-105 using the latest 67-1204 firmware.

I have the same problem with DVDs. The only way it will hold my spot and resume is if I hit stop when it is playing. If I pause and then turn off or switch to another input, it restarts the DVD.

I have a 2.1 set up. I asked and was told to hook the sub woofer to the multichannel rca out and use the dedicated fl/fr outputs, not the multichannel outputs, with stereo downmix (speakers set to small and subwoofer on). Works perfectly. My understanding, and I could be wrong, is the FL/FR downmix setting is for sending the surround information to an amp or other processor for decoding. For this to work you would need to connect to the FL/FR multichannel outputs, not the dedicated outputs.

Media still plays out of sequence in my folders after the reload of the IOS app. As I said before, I'm not using this app until that problem is resolved. I would like to be able to hear tracks played back in the same sequence the artist intended on his/her CD.
post #8364 of 10108

I'm facing the same problem as you are. Just after 5 minutes playing any music from my share using MediaControl HD, Oppo stop working and I have to turn it Off and On again ...

Bob wrote a great post explaining the down-mix settings and ratiional:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1439524/official-oppo-bdp-105-owners-thread/8280#post_24102576

If you are using your other channels from the RCA outs and the dedicated stereo outputs, down-mix FL/FR is the proper setting.
Down-mixing duplicates the surround channels from the FR/FL and attenuates L/R signals to provide headroom for the other channels.

The FL/FR is the proper settings, but as an experiment I would try the standard outputs to take them out of the equation.
Also, check your speaker configuration and make sure your crossover, speaker size, and levels are properly set.

Just hooked up my payer yesterday. Been looking at it in my wife's closet for the past 3 weeks which has been killing me! Anyway I purchased this to replace my BDP-93 and DVD-5900 so I would have just one player. My main concern was that I needed the analog stage of the Oppo to match or exceed the Denon. The BD-93P did not. I burned two identical stereo CD's for testing and did the following.

[BDP-93/5900 with HDMI/7.1 Denon clear winner]
[105/5900] source direct with analog/analog Tie
[105/5900 source direct with HDMI DSD/analog maybe 9500 had slightly more detail but not sure]
[105/5900 source direct with HDMI LPCM/analog Tie

So I'm very happy I can use this as a replacement for my dedicated CD,SACD, and DVD Audio playback!

Oh and I also just inhearited my Dad's old Empire 298 and have reconditioned it and upgraded the cartridge so I'm in listening heaven right now. smile.gif

I've got a few hundred hours on my Oppo 105, (with new speakers and rebuilt tube amp) and everything just settled in quite well in the past two weeks. Lots of bloom.

I honestly don't believe the Oppo changes a whole lot as it ages. It's a very neutral, honest, non-colored source with a great signal to noise ratio. IMHO - it is what it is.

It just may be that your system, with that vintage SS amp, isn't a good mix with such an honest source. You might try a warmer amp, tube amp for example, to help you keep that added detail and soundstage, but soften that harshness you're hearing.

Also, give it some time...maybe you've just grown accustomed to softer, rounded high end, and the honest presentation is a bit harsh from that perspective.


Hi Raven, 

 

Question:  Have you personally noticed any harshness in the high end?  I find this particularly noticeable with rock music (cymbals, snare drum etc) And if so, did it improve with time?  Has anyone else experienced this with the Oppo 105?  I'm beginning to wonder if I have a faulty unit.

Well yeah, but that's because a lot of rock music is compressed and treble boosted for radio.

Again, the player is very honest and accurate, so if you have a good amp and the Oppo, you're really hearing the music as it's recorded. If you want a player that softens the music, look elsewhere - I know some other brands have their treble rolled off to make the music a little "warmer" or "rounder" - I prefer accuracy - and that's what the Oppo is really good at.

On great recordings, the Oppo is worth twice it's asking price!
post #8369 of 10108
Bob,

I'm a bit confused about setting up the audio for our living room system. LR stereo goes via XLR directly to a Proceed Amp 2; HDMI goes to the input of a Sony 46 XBR8; SW goes directly to a Velodyne HGS-10. At some point, I may again take SR stereo via RCA to the pass-through of a Proceed PDSD with level controlled by a PAV, but I think that's immaterial to my question. My question is should I set front LR stereo or down-mix stereo. I've read your previous posts, but remain confused. Mostly audio is via HDMI using the Sony speakers crossed over at 80 Hz to the sub. The sound is surprisingly good.

Our much larger media room system use front LR to an analog stereo preamp with surrounds directly to amps and SW directly to an SMS-1 LF ARC, and the result is superb sound.

post #8370 of 10108

My question to Oppo:

 

The STEREO AUDIO OUT terminals automatically down-mix the multi-channel audio source into the stereo signals. However, STEREO AUDIO OUT will NOT be affected by the “Down mix” modes and other speaker settings in the Audio Processing of Setup Menu (described on page 70).

I'm using RCA connectors to left and right self powered speakers and  a self powered sub woofer (no amplifier or preamp.)  Do I use the dedicated stereo outputs for the speakers and the sub woofer out in the 7.1 outs or do I use all 7.1 outs? Do I use downmix stereo or downmix FT/LT?

 

Oppo response:

 

You will want to connect to the dedicated stereo outputs and the Subwoofer output.


Under Audio Processing set Speaker Configuration to Down-mixed Stereo.

Under Speaker Configuration change speakers to SMALL and Subwoofer to ON.

Your player will not give you full band to the main speakers while giving you redirected bass and LFE to your subwoofer.
