Just got my 103

Now I'm wondering, should I run the 103 through my receiver or should I make use of the dual HDMI outs so I can make calibration settings specifically for the player on a separate input on my TV?

Afraid you'll have to wait awhile for those third parties to be able to supply those aftermarket mod's or modified players. But they won't be coming from Oppo Digital or Oppo UK, who are required to sell a product that abides to the local regional lock rules.

New Public Beta available - BDP10X-37-1114B for 103/105

Quote:
Release Notes:

This version is designed for the OPPO BDP-103 and BDP-105 Blu-ray Disc players. Comparing to the previous Official release version BDP10X-33-1018, the major changes included in this version are:
  1. Added support for "Rhapsody" online music and "CinemaNow" movie/TV streaming services.
  2. Added the "Blank HDMI 2" option in the Setup Menu -> Video Setup -> 3D Setting. This allows the player to force HDMI 2 to output a 2D blank screen when HDMI 1 outputs 3D video. Some customers reported that during 3D movie playback, when HDMI 1 was connected to a 3D display and HDMI 2 was connected to a non-3D receiver which in turn is connected to the same 3D display, there was no audio coming from the receiver. This issue has been resolved.
  3. Resolved the incorrect aspect ratio (AR) during some user-created media. In the previous firmware the player may have unnecessarily pillarboxed or stretched the video of some user-created media files. This issue has been resolved.
  4. Resolved an incompatibility with older Digital Coaxial or Optical receivers where streaming services (such as Netflix, YouTube) produced no audio.
  5. Improved the user experience in the HOME menu and the Media Center (Photo, Music, or Movie) e.g., Added Thumbnail View mode for Movie and Music, and the customer can press RED COLOR button to quickly switch between File List mode and Thumbnail View mode.
  6. Added "Sleep Timer" option in the Setup Menu -> Device Setup. This allows the player to turn itself off after a specific amount of time.
  7. Added support for converting Side-by-Side and Top-Bottom formatted MKV into 3D. During the playback of a compatible MKV, press the 3D button on the remote once to turn on the "2D->3D" conversion then press the 3D button again to display the "3D Setting" menu. Select "Side-by-Side" or "Top-Bottom" to match the source to convert the image to 3D.
  8. Added "CD Program Play" function for CD/SACD playback. During the disc playback, press the YELLOW COLOR button to bring the “Program Play” interface. Here you can use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW button to set a desired playlist.
  9. General disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.
Special notices:
  1. In order to facilitate the user experience improvement in media navigation (item 6 above), the player will create an "OPPO_Media_Info" folder on the connected USB storage device and store media information there. You may find this folder on USB flash drives or external hard drives after using those on the OPPO player. Please do not delete the folder and its files.
  2. SD DVD de-interlacing performance is not as good as that of the official firmware release BDP10X-33-1018. If you watch DVD often, we recommend that you skip this beta test version and wait for the next official release, which will fix this problem.
  3. You can revert back to the previous Official release via a USB thumb drive.

Look at the BDP-103 unofficial FAQ as it keeps getting updated, and also regarding tips, be more specific, and will provide links to posts that are applicable.

PC World Australia has a review of the BDP-103
Expert rating 4.75/5

see Oppo BDP-103 Blu-ray player

Quote:
Oppo BDP-103: Conclusion

The BDP-103 is a very complex player, but it only delivers as much of the complexity as you want to deal with. You can just hook it up to your TV and let it do its thing, or you can delve into menus, adjust its colour and detail and contrast, output HD audio to a dedicated sound system, play your compressed media files from a network-attached storage device.

It’s an expensive Blu-ray player, no doubt. But what you get for that price is beyond any other Blu-ray player we’ve seen — it’s a receiver for your other digital devices, an excellent network and local media player, and an Internet video on demand streamer (although not so relevant in Australia).

When you consider that a few years ago, a Blu-ray player would cost the Oppo’s asking price or more, we don’t think it’s unreasonably expensive. We’re fully confident that the BDP-103 will outlast other cheaper players from other brands, and its video processing and included features are absolutely top-notch.

We think that Oppo’s BDP-103 is deserving of our highest praise. It’s not perfect, but it’s close.

PC World reviewed the US version of the Oppo BDP-103, the BDP-103US, and used Region 1 Blu-ray discs for the majority of its testing. You can buy the Australian version of this Blu-ray player from http://www.opposhop.com.au.

It's good to see that Oppo is adding more internet streaming apps and hopefully they will add Hulu Plus soon. The video/audio quality of the Netflix app is far superior to all other blu-ray players.

Thinking of getting an Apple TV and connecting it to the HDMI in on my 103. Or would I be better off saving some money and using the 103 to do all my streaming?

why would you not appreciate the oppo because Pandora terminated usage on it? that doesn't appear to have anything to do with oppo. maybe you should send pandora an email to let them know that your unhappy with them not wanting to pair with oppo anymore. if anything, oppo should remove the pandora icon from it's menu since i gather it's still there.

Give the guy a break. It's just an FYI. He likes Pandora and the new Oppo can't use it. He doesn't appreciate the unavailability, not that he doesn't appreciate what the Oppo does have to offer.
