Yes the USB cables. I know mine is longer than what they recommend. But that should not stop the driver from loading, should it?

Ensure that you have the USB A cable connected to the USB B port of the player.

Ensure that he player is turned ON and you have the player on INPUT USB AUDIO IN.

Ensure that you are running the Setup program as Administrator, otherwise the data may not write.

Can you try getting a PC closer with a shorter cable?

Just installed the latest office version BDP10X-67-1204 via the network under Device Setup. It shuts down after install and when I turned it back on it did not ask me to do a factory Reset.... do I still need to do that and if so which of the two options should I choose; Erase Accounts and Settings or Erase Settings? Thanks

You need to do it this once. It's not necessary hereafter, which is a new feature of recent firmware.

Erase Settings is what you want. Use Erase Accounts if you are selling the machine or your online accounts, if any, have gotten messed up somehow.

Thanks wmcclain... I did have the beta installed (BDP10X-67-1120B) before installing this current official release. Would that have the software that does not require the reset or should I do it once more just to be safe?

You can save your settings on a USB stick and download the settings after the Reset Factory Defaults.

If it didn't prompt you then you don't have to do it.

I see in other posts you already figured out, there will be issues with the volume controls.
If you use the volume control on the avr then you will need to run through the avr.
Personally I have mine going direct to sub and amps, but using the volume control on the player (no avr) which works quite nicely.

I've been into audio gear for over 40 years. This is an outstanding piece of equipment but in some ways I feel like a clueless noob. One of the primary reasons I purchased the 105 was to use its dac's for music. I have the xlr's connected to my Marantz and the Rca's to a headphone amp. For stereo listening I use the pure direct mode, no subwoofer. Which down mix mode would give me the best dac performance? L/r 2.0 5.1 or 7.1? The manual is not very clear on this. I feel like the old man with 12:00 flashing on my VCR.

If you are using headphones and stereo speakers, stereo downmix would be best.

Welcome aboard I felt the same way about this thing. And maybe I am still learning.
post #8448 of 10169
Went and bought a 6' cable, same issue. I can not get my Sony Vaio or my Gateway to get the driver to install. I emailed Oppo and did exactly as they said and still no go. I don't blame them, just driving me crazy at this point.

I just don't think the USB signal is strong enough to be carried such long distances.

Congrats on getting it working.

Denon AVR-3312CI owners manual: http://usa.denon.com/us/downloads/pages/instructionmanual.aspx
ARC would be to send audio from the TV back to the Denon, not from the Denon to a source device (such as the Oppo).

Thanks GSR.

USB Cable Length Limitations And How To Break Them

USB Cable Length Limitations:

The USB specification limits the length of a cable between USB 2.0 devices to 5 meters (or about 16 feet) and for USB 1.0 the limit is 3 meters (which is about 10 feet.) This means you can't just connect a bunch of extension cables together and run them 30 feet to another room. However, you can connect a 6 foot and 10 foot cable for a total of 16 feet.
In order to go beyond these limits you need to use USB hubs, USB active extension cables or USB over Ethernet products.

USB Hubs:

You can use extension cables and up to 5 USB hubs connected together to extend USB's range up to 30 meters (up to 27 meters for USB 1.0 devices). The distance between each hub can be no more than 5 meters.

Active Extension Cables:

USB active extension cables contain electronics which regenerate the USB signal. These cables are essentially 1 port USB hubs and will allow you to go up to 30 meters (up to 27 meters for USB 1.0 devices) by connecting up to five active extension cables together (4 cables if you are connected to a USB hub).

To follow up on Neuromancer's point, are you logged into an account with administrator privileges? That is, if you were to install new software would you be able to do it from the same account you're using when trying to install the driver?

Does this mean you are unimpressed with the headphone amp installed in the player ? I've been trying to find some opinions on the quality but it's possibly the least-discussed feature in the player.
post #8454 of 10169
I already had the amp. I've yet to try the one in the 105. If it sounds good, I may sell the amp

I bought this one like 2 years ago and works fantastic for when I need it. smile.gif

I bought it and works fine. It also works external and internal to the 105. You choose which mode is best for you.

VTuner digital network streaming into OPPO BDP-105

Is there a receiver or device other than a PC or Apple laptop/desktop that streams internet audio (has V-Tuner) and can output unprocessed bit-streams via USB, digital coax or digital optical into the BDP-105?

So far, I have not found any devices with digital or USB outs that are V-Tuner equipped. I would like to run the unprocessed digital internet radio stations direct thru my BDP-105 and out from the 105 to amps and speakers. A direct signal path.

To do this it appears (i) USB or (ii) digital coax or (iii) digital optical would be optimal. My Denon AVR-3312CI receiver can only send digital signals out via HDMI.

V-Tuner is now used by over 12,000 streaming internet stations for music, talk, television, and one webcam station. I have become a fan-boy of the jazz streaming stations because they sound to me sonically much better than FM and HD audio. And commercial-free higher rez streams are frequently available for a relatively small fee.

V-tuner is used by some of the electronics industry to get selected internet audio streaming web sites into specific devices (per the V-Tuner web site) including:

1. Selected AV receivers of Anthem, Arcam, Denon, Harman Kardon, NAD, Onkyo, Pioneer, Revox, Sony, Teac.
2. Selected networking products of some of the above plus D-Link, LG, Netgear, Sitecom, T+A, Vantage.
3. A bunch of stand-alone internet radios and some televisions.

http://www.vtuner.com/

This post is a restated post of an earlier question. Hopefully this post is more clear.

I do understand that laptops and desktops that are Apple and PC can handily accomplish the above. Especially when equipped asynchronously. Not sure I want to keep one of my laptops or my desktop on all the time for this purpose. Definitely will use my Apple laptop and PCs to stream asynchronously into the 105!

Thanks.
