




Before connecting the AC power cord to the appliance,
make sure the voltage designation of the appliance
corresponds to the local electrical supply. If you are
unsure of your power supply, contact your local power
company. The acceptable power input range is AC ~
100V-240V, 50/60Hz.
The apparatus with CLASS I construction shall be
connected to a MAINS socket outlet with a protective
earthing connection.
The player is still receiving power from the AC power
source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet,
even if the player itself has been turned off.
Unplug the power cord if you are not going to use the
product for an extended period of time. Hold the power
plug when unplugging. Do not pull on the cord.
The main plug is used as the mechanism for cutting off
power, therefore make sure it is easy to unplug.
To ensure proper ventilation around this product, do not
place this product on a sofa, bed or rug. When installing
this product on a wall or bookshelf, you need to provide
appropriate space: we recommend leaving 4 inches (10
cm) of free space at the top, the sides and the rear.
High temperature will lead to abnormal operation of this
unit. Do not expose this unit or batteries to direct sunlight
or near other heating objects.
When moving the player from a cold location to a warm
one, or vice versa, moisture may condense on the laser
pickup unit inside the player. Should this occur, the
player may not operate properly. In such a case please
turn the unit on for 1-2 hours (without a disc) to facilitate
moisture evaporation.


Some Dual-Discs: A Dual-Disc is a two-sided disc with
DVD-video on one side and digital audio on the other
side. The digital audio side does not meet the technical
specifications of the Red Book CD format so playback is
not guaranteed.
Audio discs with copy-protection may not be playable.
Notes about BD-ROM compatibility
Since the Blu-ray Disc specifications are new and evolving, some discs may not play properly depending on the disc type, version
and encoding. It is possible that a Blu-ray Disc manufactured after the player uses new features of the Blu-ray Disc specifications.
To ensure the best possible viewing experience, the player may need a firmware or software update from time to time. Please visit
OPPO Digital’s web site (US: www.oppodigital.com, UK: www.oppodigital.co.uk) to check if updates are available.
Disc care and handling




To keep the disc clean from scratches or fingerprints,
handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the recorded
surface.
Blu-ray Discs record data in very high density and the
recorded layer is very close to the disc surface. For this
reason, Blu-ray Discs are more sensitive to dust and
fingerprints than DVD. Should you encounter playback
problems and see dirty spots on the disc surface, clean
the disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the
center out along the radial direction. Do not wipe the
disc in a circular motion.
Do not use record cleaning sprays or solvents such as
benzene, thinner and anti-static spray.


Do not attach labels or stickers to discs as this may
cause the disc to warp or become too thick, resulting in
playback issues and a potentially stuck disc.
Avoid exposing the discs to direct sunlight or heat
sources.
Do not use the following discs:
o
Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers
or labels. The disc may get stuck inside the player.
o
Warped or cracked discs.
o
Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart or business
card shapes.
Cinavia Notice
This product uses Cinavia technology to limit the use of unauthorized copies of some commercially-produced film and videos and their

Changing the Remote Code
The remote control contains three OPPO remote codes. The default is “Code 1”. If you have other OPPO
products placed close to the BDT-101CI, they may inadvertently respond to the BDT-101CI remote control. To
prevent this, you can select a different remote code.
To select a new remote code, open the battery compartment cover of the remote control, and then use a ball
point pen to flip the switch to one of the positions marked as “1”, “2”, or “3”. Close the battery compartment
cover. Make sure that the BDT-101CI player is turned on and that the disc tray is ejected. Aim the remote
control at the player. Press and hold the ENTER button for 5 seconds. The player will start using the new
remote code.

Changing the Backlight Method
The remote control supports one of two backlight methods. By default, pressing the LIGHT button will
turn on the backlight, and pressing any other button within 10 seconds will keep the backlight on. The
alternative method will activate the backlight whenever any button is pressed; in this mode, the light will
stay on for 10 seconds, and pressing any other button will keep the backlight on. To switch between
these two backlight methods, press and hold the LIGHT button for 5 seconds.

I N T R O D U C T I O N
Installation
The BDT-101CI is normally sold and installed by Custom Installation audio/video dealers (hence the CI suffix
in the model number). Your Custom Installation professional should have installed and pre-configured your
OPPO Blu-ray player for optimized performance in your home theater system. You may skip this section of the
user manual - all you need to do is to turn on the player and other components in the home theater system,
and enjoy pristine audio and video.
In case you are performing a self-installation, the following two connection methods are the most common
ways of integrating the OPPO Blu-ray player into a home theater system. Should your system require
additional connections, please refer to the BDT-101CI Installer Manual available from the BDT-101CI product
support page on the OPPO Digital web site.
Connecting to a TV via HDMI
GND

If your TV has an HDMI input, you can use the included HDMI cable to connect the player directly
to the TV. This connection method delivers both video and audio in a pure digital format via a
single cable. The HDMI output of the player allows for the highest possible video quality and audio
resolution.

You may remove the HDMI cable and connect the DIAG (diagnostic) output to the TV through a
regular composite video cable (not included) when there is a problem with HDMI video. Only the
Setup Menu will be visible on the TV when using this connection, so it is limited to troubleshooting
purposes only.
NOTE
This connection method will output sound via the TV’s speakers. For optimal sound quality, it is
recommended that audio be transferred from the BDT-101CI to an A/V receiver with connected
speakers.
11
I N T R O D U C T I O N
Connecting to an A/V Receiver via HDMI
GND

If you have an HDMI-capable receiver that can support HDMI audio, you can simply run an HDMI
cable from the player to your receiver and enable HDMI audio on the receiver (see your receiver’s
owner’s manual for more information). The receiver usually has an HDMI output that you can
connect to your TV to pass the video signal.

The HDMI output terminal on the rear panel of the BDT-101CI can be connected to your receiver.
NOTE
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a single cable that can transport both audio and
video from your player to your display. Be aware, however, that HDMI is an evolving standard, and
there may be compatibility issues. A receiver that supports audio input over HDMI is required.
Some receivers offer HDMI ports solely for video switching. If your receiver does not have audio
input capability, please read the following sections regarding other connection methods.
In order to play multi-channel audio for all formats, the receiver must support HDMI v1.1 or later.
For Blu-ray Discs, a receiver that supports HDMI v1.4 with decoding capability for Dolby TrueHD
and DTS-HD Master Audio is preferred. Please check the specifications of your receiver to ensure
that it meets these requirements.

Depending on how the studios organize their BD-Live content, some Blu-ray Discs may start downloading BDLive content when playback starts, have a BD-Live selection on the main menu, show a prompt asking
whether you would like to start downloading, or ask you to sign up for a membership or account. Please follow
the instructions that come with the disc to enjoy BD-Live contents.
Your Internet connection speed and the capacity of the BD-Live content servers can all affect how fast BDLive content is downloaded. If you encounter slow downloading or intermittent playback, please play the disc
without accessing the BD-Live features, or try again at a different time.
When you use the BD-Live feature, the player or disc ID and your IP (Internet Protocol) address may be sent
to the content provider via the Internet. Generally, no personally identifiable information is sent. However
technologies exist to match your IP address to a certain geographical area or service provider. Your Internet
service provider also has the knowledge of who is using a particular IP address. If the BD-Live content
provider requires you to log in using a membership or account, the content provider will have access to your
membership or account information. Check with your Internet service provider and the BD-Live content
providers for their privacy policy.
BD-Live network access can be turned off or restricted. Please check with your Custom Installation
professional for details.

ADVANCED OPERATIONS
Zooming and Aspect Ratio Control
This feature zooms in and out of the displayed frame and also
changes the aspect ratio (image width vs. height).
ZOOM
To change the zoom level, press the ZOOM button on the remote
control. Each press of the ZOOM button will switch the zoom level
in sequence.
Zoom Levels for HDMI Output
The available zoom levels depend on the TV Aspect Ratio setting in the Setup Menu and the encoded
aspect ratio on the BD/DVD Disc:
1:1 (No zoom), Stretch/Compress, Full Screen, Under Scan, 1.2X, 1.3X, 1.5X, 2X, 1/2X
The zoom level is reset to 1:1 when the disc is ejected, or when the player is turned off.
The following zoom levels may be useful for specific applications:
1) Playing 16:9 BD or DVD when TV Aspect Ratio is set to 16:9 Wide or 16:9 Wide/Auto

Stretch – The image is vertically stretched 1.33 times. For movies with 2.35:1 aspect ratio, this zoom
level cuts off the black borders at the top and bottom of the image. Users of a projector with an
anamorphic lens may find this mode helpful.

The “Under Scan” zoom level shrinks the image by 5%. This zoom level may be used to compensate for
TVs that over scan, so the viewer can see the entire image area with no cropping. All other zoom levels
are indicated by their respective zoom ratio.
NOTE

Some early DVD titles (released from 1997 until early 2000’s) use a 4:3 non-anamorphic
widescreen aspect ratio. When played on a 16:9 display, the content is shown in a small window
with black borders on all four sides. The top and bottom borders are encoded into the video.
The left and right borders are added by the player to maintain the correct aspect ratio. For these
types of discs, the Full Screen zoom mode can be used to eliminate the borders.

The ZOOM feature may not be available when certain DVD or Blu-ray Discs are played if the
disc’s author has chosen to disable ZOOM.

MEDIA FILE PLAYBACK
In addition to playing standard disc-based formats such as Blu-ray, DVD, CD and SACD, the
BDT-101CI can play media files. You can enjoy digital music, movies and photos stored on a data disc
(recordable CD, DVD or Blu-ray) or an external USB drive. Due to the variation of media, encoding
software and techniques used, compatibility cannot be guaranteed for all user-created or downloaded
content. Support for such content is on a best effort basis.
Playback from a USB Flash Drive
The BDT-101CI is equipped with three USB ports: one on the front panel and two on the back. You may use
any of the available USB ports to plug in a USB drive.
The USB ports are rated to provide a maximum of 5V, 1000mA power to the USB drive. It is sufficient for USB
thumb drives and flash memory card readers, but may not be sufficient for USB hard disks. It is recommended
to check with your drive manufacturer for power requirements, or use an external power supply.
NOTE

This unit supports “USB Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport” devices only. Most USB
thumbs drives, portable hard disk drives and card readers conform to this device class. Other
USB devices such as MP3 players, digital cameras, and mobile phones may not be
compatible.

Supported USB drives can be formatted with the FAT (File Allocation Table), FAT32 or NTFS
(New Technology File System) file system.

In some cases, an incompatible USB device may cause the player to stop responding. If this
occurs, simply turn off the power, remove the USB device, and turn the player back on.

In order to minimize the risk of data corruption, it is recommended that you only unplug the
USB device when playback is completely stopped.

Playback from a Home Network
The BDT-101CI can remotely play back music, photo, and video files stored on computers or NAS
(Network Attached Storage) devices that are connected to the same home network. The computer or
NAS need to run server software that supports media sharing protocols such as DLNA, SMB/CIFS or
NFS. To play media files shared on your home network, press the HOME button on the remote to bring
the Home Menu, select the Network icon and press the ENTER button to show the list of available
servers.
The BDT-101CI player can play media files on the home network in one of the following three ways:

As a digital media player (DMP): the player can actively search, access and pull content from
local media servers which supports DLNA.

As a digital media renderer (DMR): the player plays content received (“pushed”) from a digital
media controller (DMC). A DMC-capable media server is required. Refer to the server’s
respective user instructions for correct configuration and operation.

As a SMB/CIFS/NFS client: the player can directly access files shared through SMB/CIFS/NFS
servers over the network, as if accessing an external USB hard drive. Most computers,
especially those installed with Windows, already support SMB clients. Please refer to respective
OS instructions to set up the SMB/CIFS/NFS shared file/folder.
NOTE
 NAS is a networked appliance that provides file-based data storage services to other devices
on the network. Commercial products are available on the market.
 SMB (Server Message Block) or CIFS (Common Internet File System) is mostly known as
Microsoft Windows Network. It does not require an extra media server or perform any media
format transcoding, which reduces the processing load and keeps the original content quality.
 Compatibility with local network sharing hardware/software is on a best effort basis with no
guarantee, due variations in NAS devices, media servers and their configurations. OPPO
Digital does not offer technical support via email or phone for this feature. The OPPO Wiki
located at wiki.oppodigital.com can be a useful resource to learn about this feature
