post #1592 of 3740
When I stream netflix content, the stretch/zoom option does not work. Is this by design? I thought since it is up converting the netflix content, the zoom function should also work. What am I missing here?

Thanks.

The Netflix app locks out all the audio / video / setup options, so any settings need to be made before starting the Netflix app.

You may want to ask again as they are sometimes busy. You can start at about post # 1097 for Hopper questions as it doesn't have a native setting.

I guess I am not certain what you mean by "...get the Oppo to resume play". Are you asking if I can pause a movie and then hit play and it continues? If that is your question, then, yes, it works. If you are asking if I can stop a movie and then come back to it a day or two later and have it continue where I left off, I am not sure as I usually watch movies all the way through. If the latter is your question, let me know and I can try it out and report back.

Yes, the latter is what I mean. like watching a movie than stop it to get a drink, hit play to continue from where you stopped.

I can get my portable hard drive connected to the 103D to do but not movies on my DS213 streaming thru DLNA, I was inform that DLNA can not do resume play so I need to connect my DS213 to Oppo thru SMB.

If you're just heading off to get a drink, you should be able to press the pause button and then press play when you return. But it's correct that if you press the stop button, there's no way to resume from where you left off when playing via DLNA.

Hi, just became a member today but had been following this forum for days. Purchased the OPPO 103D last week and am extremely happy with it. Thought I'd share my experience with a good working splitter for those who are looking to get one. The model I purchased 2 days ago is a one in - two HDMI out unit branded DAIYO. It is 3D and 4K compatible. Working extremely well for me with no loss for 3D whatsoever. I do not have a 4K TV so have not tested that aspect. DAIYO also has a 1 in X 4 out model. Purchased mine in Singapore where I am residing at a cost of S$138 for the 2 out model. It is Japanese design but manufactured in China like most things are today.

 

On a side note, I also saw a Chinese made unbranded splitter (2 in X 4 out) with full matrix combi usage meaning the hand held remote as well as the on-unit switches can select any of the 2 HDMI in across all four outs. Claim to be also 3D and 4K compatible. I opted not to purchase or test this unit as I have no requirement for more than 1 HDMI out.

 

I have used DAIYO switches and other products previously and all are still working flawlessly after several years so I can vouch for their excellent quality.

 

By the way, the OPPO 103D is also a great combination for my new Sony HMZ-T3W head viewer.

Sorry for the mistake in my earlier post. The correct brand name for the splitter I had mentioned should read DAIYO instead of DAYO.

Noted with thanks. Corrected the typo. There is no icon to cancel my second post, only pencil and flap icons appeared on my screen.

Im going to be bad, and ask something that most of you will shake your head at, but bear with me because outside of AVR's, my knowledge of audio is lacking.

Im running a 3.1 system with Klipsch towers and center, with the Hsu sub. Ive tried different brand AVR's at discount (buying older models), but now Im ready for an amp.

Since I run my Tivo and Directv DVR into the 103D, as well as the roku stick, it is doing all the processing anyways. I could spend a ridiculous amount on a pre/pro with Audyssey, or get the UMC200 Emotiva, but by most accounts their room correction still needs to be tweaked.

Im thinking just running sound from the 103D to an Emotiva XPA-3, and video to the display. Any input is great appreaciated. I also have a Galaxy Audio CM-140 which is a nice sound meter.

Im also thinking if I like this, down the road I could upgrade to the 105D, if it comes out.

Thanks.

It looks like my only downmix option is to 5.1, so I could not do that if I wanted too...


Edit: Looks like I found my answer after looking more into the manual: I just set 7.1 or 5.1, then choose the speakers to turn off to make it a 3.1, then the Oppo mixes that in, correct?

So i could send analog 3.1 out to my amp, and would use the Oppo to control the volume? Also, the Oppo would LPCM audio on blu-ray and the DD tracks from my DVR's to the amp?

Does that sound correct.

Note this isn't a deficiency with DLNA in general ... its Oppo's implementation of their DLNA client.

Has anyone observed when you select VUDU from the main Oppo menu that sometimes VUDU fails to launch and boots you back to the main Oppo menu? Normally hitting the VUDU icon again launches VUDU successfully? I've only noticed this behavior with the latest official firmware.

Question:

Every time I load a movie about 1 min in the player will lose sync for about 5 sec, then re-syncs and I will not have the problem again until the next movie. Anyone else having this same issue?

Using the latest firmware.

Is this with Blu-ray and DVD discs?

Hi
I have been calibrating my Panasonic AE3000 with the latest S&M Second Edition disc

I noticed some rounding / streaks in the Red & Blue contrast ramps the Green ramp was ok
On further testing I found that this seems to be caused by the Darbee processing ( Set at 38% ) as when I switch Darbee off the ramps turn smooth
Has anyone else noticed this or could try it out for confirmation
I am not in the business of hunting for faults but found this purely by chance
It also does not seem to affect anything while watching movies
Thanks in advance
Andy

I haven't looked at that pattern, but Darbee can definitely produce artifacts. It's just the nature of the beast; it's not perfect for all possible images.

That said, at 35% HiDef I hardly ever see problems now.

I have run a similar 3.1 setup in the exact same way and it works well.

Strange because all reviews I have read say that DARBEE didn't introduce any artefacts, which is why I posted
Any way no great deal as can't see it on movies

It doesn't produce the halo ringing of earlier edge enhancement techniques, but it can sometimes fail and produce transient errors. Which, as I said, I don't often see these days.

As the reviews point out, it doesn't work equally well for all content. The better the image the better the result.

I started a new thread by mistake:

Hello everyone, I am a long time AVS'er, but new to the OPPO thread. I am taking delivery of a new Samsung 64" F8500 plasma next week ans was thinking about going OPPO 103D for the Blu Ray player. Right now everything is going through my older Marantz unit for switching and processing.

I am seeing some negative comments with this unit and the newer plasma's. How much of an an improvement will i actually get before seeing artifacts?

I am i skipping the Marantz and running all processing through the OPPO?

Any help and input on setting up would be great.

Thanks in advance
post #1617 of 3740
I received my Oppo 103D the other day and so far most of the setup and operation has gone pretty smooth but I am experiencing an issue with sound delay. My setup is as follows

Directv dvr to Oppo in
HDMI 1 out to Panasonic tv
HDMI 2 out to Marantz SR7005 avr

When watching directv and the sound is output through the avr there are no current issues. When the sound is output from the tv speakers instead of the avr I get a 2 or 3 second delay whenever there is a play restart from a pause or ff/rew button. It has nothing to do with synchronization as it’s just no sound for a couple seconds and then it works fine.

I spoke with Oppo but they didn’t really have an answer so I was wondering if anyone else is having this issue or has a suggestion/solution.
post #1618 of 3740
I saw the same on an Onkyo AVR, but not with a Marantz AVR I have now. Seems like a handshake delay after coming out of fast forward/reverse. Onkyo took forever to pick up sound, but the Marantz is fast.
post #1619 of 3740
But when the sound is output by the tv speakers isnt it totally bypassing the avr since its dvr-oppo-tv ?
post #1620 of 3740
Its still a handshake issue. The tv is probably like the Onkyo, it doesnt reacquire like the Marantz does, or is not playing well with the Oppo.
