If I unplug the machine, those options come back, but get grayed out again if I try to engage the Darbee. I have the latest official firmware.

Any ideas?

Make sure that you are using the HDMI-1 cennection on the back of the player. HDMI-2 output does not use Darbee processing.

That's it- thanks. I mistakenly plugged the HDMI cable into HDMI 2 instead of 1.

Has anyone else had trouble getting the Oppo iOS apps to connect to the 105D?

RemoteControl finds the player's IP, but doesn't display the player name: "10.0.0.8" instead of "OPPO BDP-105D". Also it is missing the image of the player. Tapping "Remote Mode" brings up a connecting message for about 1 second but nothing further happens. The menu screen on the player also shows a connecting animation, but nothing happens.

MediaControl brings up a "No Player Found" dialog with options to rescan or contact support.

Support suggested I check the firmware version and that my router has multicast enabled. I checked the firmware version and the network connection and both are fine. Multicasting is enabled as well, but still nothing.



wow - so glad I saw this. Just got mine after exchanging a BDP 105 that worked great - I also cannot get the Media Control App to find the player, and get the exact same message and options -- I sent an e-mail

its just tough to swallow when the 105 worked perfectly

I am able to easily pick up my Synology NAS and flawlessly play media files when using the Oppo Remote to navigate onscreen, just cannot get the Media Control working


Also of interest, just trying everything to see if I can get it to work,and interestingly, I tried to do a Firmware update, and it indicated that it failed and "couldn't find the server"

^ The MediaControlHD app for the iPad was updated today, and I believe it fixes this problem of not recognizing the 105D.

Presumably the MediaControl app for the iPhone and iPod Touch will be updated shortly.

Just picked up the 105D yesterday no problems with the MediaControlHD Ipad app "UK" the player is showing the player icon and picking up my external drives no problem.

OPPO UK has now also posted the French language User Manual for the EU version of the BDP-105D:

Just got my 105D and it is up and running with a regionfree prokit (normal 103/105 prokit) from bluraychip.dk and it works with all sones on BD. Will watch the first movie on it tonight.smile.gif

Is there any device that could be connected to the rear USB-B DAC input and "impersonate" a computer? I just do not fancy having to move my laptop to the living room, just to listen to DSD128 :-(

Apple's iOS store now has new versions of the OPPO MediaControlHD, MediaControl, and Remote apps -- adding BDP-105D support

MediaControlHD is for the iPad. MediaControl is for the iPhone and iPad Touch. Both include the functions of the Remote app, plus additional media browsing (which has not changed in this version). They support the 103/103D/105/105D. Note that for the Power ON function to work the player must be set to use Quick Start and must either have an Ethernet connection or must have Wifi enabled, with the Wifi dongle plugged into the USB 1 jack in the back of the player.

The Remote app is the older app designed for the more limited control capabilities of the older 93/95 players. It will work with the newer players, but without the additional, new control capabilities of those players. My recommendation if you have a 10X player is that you use one of the two MediaControl apps instead.

Nothing cheap, not like a wireless USB bridge would work out. (jitter/noise)
There is the AURALiC Lightning ARIES USB audio streamer ($999, May 2014) that might work.

Reference press release.

This new version worked partially-- oppo customer service might not be aware of this, as their response back to me said to update player firmware, be sure my iOS device is on the same network, etc, etc.

  • I can now access my USB stick, via MediaControl App, but cannot access my Synology NAS on iOS from either iPad or iPhone 5
  • I can access and play files off my NAS when going through network icon, using the shipped Oppo Remote (i.e. not iOS app)


I am using a WiFi dongle


Of note, when I tried to do a firmware upgrade via Internet I got this popup window:

Cannot connect to the server. The firmware is not upgraded.


So, something still seems awry as I can get some things to work, and others don't.

My 105D is set up exactly the same as a 105 was 1 week ago, and that player worked flawlessly with iOS media, firmware upgrades, and playing files on my NAS via MediaControl

Got my 105D mid-week but just had the time to connect it today.

Watched a movie in .mkv format. Worked perfectly, sounded and looked terrific. No more having to stream .mkvs to my player.

That does happen sometimes if there is a temporary server issue. I don't think it has anything to do with your specific player.
I have had that happen before and then just try again later or the next day and it works fine.

If you can run a long Ethernet cable, Archimago measured one here and found no problem with added jitter:

New to Oppo World…installed my 105D yesterday and impressed with audio (SACD), video (BD), and especially video upgrade from cable box. Had an "HD" channel before that barely passed for HD, and now is very crisp, with the HD pop.

Anyhow, several questions:

1. Connected via ethernet which tested and works find - both by running connection test and Netflix. However, won't do firmware update ("Cannot Connect to Server"). Thought it might be a temporary issue, but didn't work all day yesterday and not working this morning.

2. Using HDMI 1 to Sony HD projector, HDMI 2 to Yamaha RX-2700, and basic red/white RCA cables to Yammy for analog stereo. Any suggestions on best upgrade for stereo analog connection?

3. I have extensive music collection on RAID CRU dual disc connected to MacPro. What is best way to do the network connect to be able to pull up selections from my collection? The 105D will recognize the locations/folder/files, but not play the music. I have a Sonos on another system in the house and really like the connection options….is it possible to attach Sonos box to the Oppo?

4. Home theater setup is with above referenced Yammy to 7.1 speaker system of various Paradigm speakers. The Yammy has many sound profiles you can select (e.g. concert small hall, concert big hall, entertainment game, movie spectacle, dolby digital, DTS, etc.) It runs HDMI 1.2a. Currently set up to send bitstream from the Oppo. Does this sound right, and them tweak the sound profile to preference on the Yammy?

5. Noticed Oppo allows you to config to the speaker system for analog output. Given the above setup (which also allows to config the speaker setup through Yammy), is there any need to mess with the Oppo?

6. What are the best websites for downloading top quality audio, and is it best to play those files over the network, or burn a CD?

Thanks in advance! wink.gif

There's no Official firmware update yet since the 105D is so new. Once there is, the update server for the 105D will go live.

There IS a Public Beta firmware, but that needs to be downloaded for install via USB Stick.

Would this play .iso image files?

Which oppo models would this work on?

This is an .exe file in the .zip, what is intended to be done with that? Would this overwrite the current firmware and return it to an older version or does it just add the ability to any current version?

It is a program for your PC not the Oppo and you mount your BDMW file in it and press a button and viola the BDMV is playable, but sorry it will not work with ISO. I have tested it with the 103 and 105D, and it works on both.cool.gif

Any of you BDP-105(D) owners care to take a pics at what it can be compared to, as a stand-alone CD/SACD player? Model/brand or just price range :-D
post #82 of 382
I have just changed from the 105 to the 105D, one thing that I have noticed, I had a few blurays that have been burned on my pc, the 105 refused to play the disc after the last firmware update, the 105D plays them with no problems!!
post #83 of 382
I have been eagerly looking forward to picking up my first Oppo universal player, and the 105D is hot on my radar.

Use: 60% audio (plenty of it is high res flac & wav), 40% movies which I have been archiving as .iso disc image files.

I am curious what you guy might suggest as the best course of action?
- use an older player that plays .iso (but be more limited in not being able to play DSD downloaded files or have the latest DAC or video processing)?
- use the 105D but take the .iso and convert is to ___?___. I am straddling PC and Mac setups but would like to move completely to mac, so not about .mkv vs .mov
(I am pretty hard core about not losing any detail/definition on either video or audio due to compression. Storage is cheap and would love to have them as .iso and be able to load them up as if I was inserting the disc and have access to multiple sound formats and bonus stuff.

I'm sure there may be a better forum for this, and for that I apologize in advance, and look forward to all your recommendations!

Thanks!

MKV forever!

Look at MakeMKV. Runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. Does not change the A/V quality and you can pass thru subtitles as is. Fast because it is not compressing the video, just copying it into a new container.

I have a 105 as well and love it.

Can you notice any difference in the playback of bluray dvd or streaming videos from VUDU ie is it really worth upgrading from the 105 to the 105D?

That's opening a can of worms so to speak, since there are varying opinions about what the DVP (Darbee Visual Processing) does for your picture.
I was skeptical before trying it, but once I did I was quickly hooked on it and love what Darbee does.
Others say they can't tell much of a difference, but I think the biggest mistake is that people expect too much before they see it.
The DVP will add some sharpening and contrast enhancements to the picture and thus giving it some better overall depth.
It can be a moderate improvement but can also be very subtle too, it just depends on your settings and the content being viewed,
not to mention screen size too... the bigger the screen, the more difference you may see.
Of all the comments I have seen about DVP, it is my opinion that it may very well be something you have to see for yourself first hand to know whether you like it and/or think it's worth paying for.
There are some demos out there you can look at too. Here's a Youtube search that will show you some demo clips...

I just tried a .MKV movie that I know has subtitles, but I did not see the subtitles with my 105D. Does this player support MKV subtitles??

What format are the subtitles? I use PGS, VOBSUB and SRT and all work.

Is this on local storage, over SMB or DLNA?

I have a connection/function question:

Here is my setup: Yamaha RX-A2030 AVR, Oppo 105D, Comcast DVR Box, 7.1 Paradigm speaker config, Sony VPL-VW100 HD projector.

To make it simple, I have Oppo HDMI 1 direct to projector to maximize video quality, HDMI 2 to AVR, and the back HDMI In from Cable box. So far so good, all is well.

However, I want to be able to see the on screen display (OSD) function of the AVR. It doesn't have to be at the same time I am watching another input, so I tried connecting AVR HDMI out to Oppo front HDMI and selecting that, however nothing shows.

Is there a way to get on screen display while retaining the video benefits of going directly to projector from Oppo?

The hdmi input on the front of the 105 is a mobile high-def link (MHL), compatible with mobile phones, tablets, and other portable electronics. To see your AVR's on screen display, I'd probably route that directly to your projector, bypassing the 105.
