The server may be staling or crashing. Try using a DLNA server instead and see if the same issues persist.

If you are using Wireless, try Ethernet instead.

Yes all good tips. The player is hard wired and I have now tested a few DLNA servers. I'm running on a mac so I can only use oshare if I run it in a vmware image ... Which is a hassle.

That said, over the last 12 hours a few 103 owners have posted exactly the same behavior I've seen ...... In the oppo DLNA streaming thread, so I don't seem alone.

Does anyone know how I can get the oppo to go to Hdmi 1 on the back as soon as I turn it on instead of going to the home screen? Also, does anyone else have their direct tv being processed through the oppo. If so, do you like the difference and what are your oppo picture adjustment settings set at? Also, are you using the darbee? Thanks.

Not at this time, but a future firmware is planned where the player will go back to the last active INPUT you used when you put it into Standby. So if you were on HDMI IN FRONT and turned off the player, it would go back to HDMI IN FRONT instead of BLU-RAY when the player was turned on again.

Yes, i've noticed the same thing. Couldn't figure out a way to stop any type of disk from playing on startup, although only tried dvds or bds. Is this behavior unique to the 103D or does the 103 do the same thing?

The 103/105/103D are identical in this regard.

While viewing the DirecTV input, press Info on the OPPO remote and see what shows on the on-screen display. The top line is what's coming in on that input. The bottom line is what's going out on the HDMI outputs. Confirm that you are getting the video Resolutions and Color Space choices that you expect.

Also, double check your video calibration using a calibration disc. When installing a new player, it is common to use a different input on the TV without remembering that TV settings are generally Per-Input -- i.e., the TV settings may not be correctly set yet.

Thanks

Yes, set the OPPO to output 1080p.

The choice of HDMI Color Space and HDMI Deep Color combinations can only be made by checking it with your AVR and Display. The "real" differences are subtle, but many Displays (and some AVRs) have quirks (read bugs) which screw up some of the combos. Since we are talking bugs here, there's no logic to it, and you just have to check and see. The type of errors involved are tough to see using normal calibration charts, as they basically involve smoothness of color "ramps" -- and on charts such errors only show as a few pixels "a bit wrong" in the longer ramp. I've posted many times on a critical scene in Chapter 10 of "Ratatouille", Blu-ray, that I've found works well to spot and reject the combos which reveal bugs like this in your video chain. Search the 93 thread for a post by me on "Ratatouille".

Until you have a chance to do such experimenting, I suggest you set your HDMI Color Space to YCbCr 4:4:4 and your HDMI Deep Color to OFF.

If you can't spot a reason to PREFER enabling Deep Color -- and again this will largely depend on whether your gear has bugs -- then leave Deep Color OFF as it puts less bandwidth on the HDMI cable -- which means fewer HDMI handshake issues.

I read about the known issue regarding MKV files and incorrect displayed time, or navigation issues in the unofficial FAQ, but how about M2TS files?

I actually just noticed this, but although the files play fine, ff and rew work, elapsed time is correct and resume work.

Total time displayed under INFO for the file is incorrect though. It just displays 22:24. The player happily passes this time and keeps playing however.

EDIT: reset the player back to factory and now M2TS total time is displayed correctly, so must have being an odd quirk.

That will be quite awesome.

Hello: I just picked up my 103D on Friday and am very pleased overall with its performance. One reason I moved from the 93 (still own it) to the 103D is due to its ability to play back DSD music files. However, it appears that it will NOT play back files from a NAS server over the ethernet, but only via usb attached storage. If this is correct, I would LOVE for this feature to be added at a future date as all of my considerable music collection is on the two NAS server drives I have. Anyone else that can comment, agree or disagree with the above?
Thanks!

Someone set it up via DLNA ..

Your NAS needs to offer SMB file sharing on the network. DSD will not work via DNLA servers. Be aware that on the Oppo network screen, DNLA servers and SMB shares will have different icons. Shares will show the name as it was assigned to the share on the server. But yes, DSD files can be played via SMB.

Thanks for the above info; unfortunately, my Synology does not have the Twonky software and my WD My Book Live NAS has a much older version of Twonky that does not offer the ability to add new files formats as indicated in that post.mad.gif

As said above, you must have SMB available on the NAS. It's the most common way of accessing the server.

Right, and in fact oftener than not it means the opposite, as only natural convection carries the heat away.

With fans the air is blown out the front or back and components can be stacked with impunity, like pro audio stuff.

Hi, Bill: I am currently using DNLA on the Synology, but I think it has SMB capabilities as well, although they have to be enabled. At present, the DSD files don't even show up on that server, just their folders. I will see if I can enable SMB tonight, although that NAS has far more capabilities that its owner!tongue.gif

For some reason I notice more graniness or noise to my blu rays both in 2D and 3D on this player than my older samsung. It just doesn't seem quite as sharp. Does anyone else notice this? Am I doing something wrong or is there a setting I can adjust to make this better? I left darbee off and adjusted the noise setting etc... With no luck. Any info would be great. Thanks guys.
post #1158 of 3665
I do not. It could be your player was applying something you could not turn off, or you had something turned on. IMO, the 103D is a very "clean" and accurate image with all the BS turned off.

Put ALL the Picture Adjustment settings in the 103D at their Factory Default (0) values. Use explicit 1080p output Resolution (not AUTO and not Source Direct). Start with HDMI 1 Color Space at YCbCr 4:4:4 and Deep Color OFF.

Now use a good calibration disc (such as the new, version 2 Spears & Munsil, Blu-ray, available from OPPO) and make all adjustments using only the controls in your TV. With the 103D settings at defaults like this it is putting out Reference video signals.

It may very well be that the best adjustments in the TV for this player are different from what you are used to with your prior player.

If you have this player hooked to a different input on the TV, you may also have not copied over the settings from the other input you used to use in the TV. Modern TVs typically remember settings per input.

Before checking the actual video levels (e.g., Brightness/Contrast, etc.) START by making sure you have the TV set to the best "Picture Mode" global settings for movie watching. Also disable any picture "enhancement" features in the TV as they will just get in the way of calibrating for high quality content input.

Thanks guys. I have everything in the oppo set to default 0. I will mess with the tv settings later. I got my player last week, but it came with an older firmware. Should that matter? I can't get high speed internet at my house so I have to take my computer and thumb drive to work to dowoad the latest. Thanks.
post #1161 of 3665
^ There wasn't an update CD packaged with the player?
--Bob
post #1162 of 3665

Your Oppo should come with a disc with the latest firmware.

post #1163 of 3665
There was, but the firmware was earlier than what was posted a few weeks ago. Forgot the number but I think it was 60 dash something.

There is no newer firmware for the 103D yet than what's on that update CD: Main Firmware version BDP10X-60-0910. If you've not installed the firmware on that update CD, you should do so now.

You may be getting confused by the firmware update that was released recently for the older, BDP-93 and -95 players.

post #1165 of 3665
Ok thanks. That is the firmware on my cd and I did install it.

for internal use the connections are different compared to the 103 but
the new installation manual for use with the 103D comes with the kit."

For what it's worth, I can now confirm that the internal/external Region Free kit from Only Best Rated Canada (which I believe to be identical to the JVB version referenced above) does in fact work on the 103D in exactly the manner it worked on the 103. I have my mod installed externally.

My bet was your older Samsung player was applying noise reduction. So many players do .. even when you set the picture modes to None or 0 !!
post #1168 of 3665

Is it worth getting the 103D vs 103 if I have an Epson 6030 w/ 110" screen?  I will be watching 75% TV/Sports vs 25% movies w/ this projector set about 20' back in a lighter room w/ controlled lighting. 

post #1169 of 3665
Trying to decide between the 103 vs 103D, Is it worth the extra 100? If the 103D darbee settings are turned off is it basically the same player as the original 103 or can u even turn the darbee aspect right off? I have a 9th Gen Kuro would this be a good set to utilize the 103D? or should I opt out for the 103?

Thanks for your help guys!

This is often asked and hard to answer. If you like Darbee or hate Qdeo more than you like $100, then it would be worth it.

Apart from the video processing differences they are identical.

Yes, you can.
