  • Problem with Oppo......Gonk ?

    While watching Precias BD tonite I had the same problems I did with 2012.

    Video slowing at times no longer than a second or Two and frame advancing a second or Two as well. No issue with audio drop but this is troublesome. Do I have a bad Oppo or is there a setting I need to adjust ?

    Oppo 83 Blue Ray player sending audio /Video through HDMI into Onkyo 805 then to panny AE900.

      Matt , I would think it would have all updated firmwares as it is just over a week old. I'm leaning towards a bad player. Somthing to do with compression as standard DVD's play fine. 2 out of 4 BD discs have issues.

        Have you contacted Oppo? I hear they have pretty good customer service.

          in that case give oppo a call. it still could be a firmware issue. but you will likely need them to help you sort it out. From my dealings with them they are pretty friendly and helpful.

                Been out of town all day, just playing catch-up. I'd definitely give OPPO a call or email about this, as I haven't seen any reports from other users that match this behavior.

                  I called Oppo and they said to shut off the 24 hz. I checked and it was off with default settings . They said it must be Firmware as they checked with the firmware code I told them I had and it was a firware dated to Sept.

                  They are sending a disc to update firmware.

                  I'll update this thread as I continue to trouble shoot this issue.

                    Quick question for you... Does your Oppo tray vibrate when you close the drawer? Mine does and sometimes I think that the CD/DVD is going to vibrate itself out of its seated position in the tray...

                    Thanks,

                    Derek

                      Derek , The tray is very smooth on open and close. Great player other than the BD palyback.

                        If you don't want to wait for the disc to come and have a USB memory stick (thumb drive) handy, you can grab the latest firmware from this page (the firmware file itself is here). You just put the contents of the zip file in a folder on the USB stick (folder name must be UPG) and plug the stick into the player's USB port.

                            Hi Jack,

                            Doublecheck that there is nothing wrong with your discs. Especially if you received them from Netflix. I have experienced the exact same problem as you, twice in the the last week. Each time it was a very small crack in the outside of the Blu-ray. It was a pain to try and watch Grand Torino 3 times.... Even my replacement disc had the same small crack. Third time I checked the disc before watching it. No crack= no problem.

                            Hope there is nothing wrong with your player.

                              That's because you watch movies like Precious.....

                              Watch Chuck Norris movies (not even Steven Seagal) and you'll be upgrading firmware on your toaster!

                              :lurk:
                              What if the Hokey-Pokey really IS what it's all about?!
