# Oppo Blu-ray player Binding

Oppo logo

This binding can be used to control the Oppo UDP-203/205 or BDP-83/93/95/103/105 Blu-ray player. Almost all features of the various models of this player line are supported by the binding. This binding was tested on a BDP-103 only, so there might be issues with other models that will need to be fixed. Please report any issues found. Also review the notes below for some important usage caveats.

The binding supports three different kinds of connections:

  • direct IP connection (with caveats),
  • serial connection,
  • serial over IP connection

For users without a serial connector on the server side, you can use a serial to USB adapter.

You don't need to have your player device directly connected to your openHAB server. You can connect it for example to a Raspberry Pi and use ser2net Linux tool (opens new window) to make the serial connection available on LAN (serial over IP).

# Supported Things

There is exactly one supported thing type, which represents the player. It has the player id.

# Discovery

Manually initiated Auto-discovery is supported if the player is accessible on the same IP subnet of the openHAB server. In the Inbox, select Search For Things and then choose the Oppo Blu-ray Player Binding to initiate discovery.

# Binding Configuration

There are no overall binding configuration settings that need to be set. All settings are through thing configuration parameters.

# Thing Configuration

The thing has the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Accepted values
Player Model model Specifies what model of player is to be controlled by the binding (required). 83, 103, 105, 203, or 205
Address host Host name or IP address of the Oppo player or serial over IP device. host name or ip
Port port Communication port for using serial over IP. Leave blank if using direct IP connection to the player. ip port number
Serial Port serialPort Serial port to use for directly connecting to the Oppo player a comm port name
Verbose Mode verboseMode (Optional) If true, the player will send time updates every second. If set false, the binding polls the player every 10 seconds. Boolean; default false

Some notes:

  • If using direct IP connection on the BDP series (83/93/95/103/105), verbose mode is not supported.
  • For some reason on these models, the unsolicited status update messages are not generated over the IP socket.
  • If fast updates are required on these models, a direct serial or serial over IP connection to the player is required.
  • The UDP-20x series should be fully functional over direct IP connection but this was not able to be tested by the developer.
  • As previously noted, when using verbose mode, the player will send time code messages once per second while playback is ongoing.
  • Be aware that this could cause performance impacts to your openHAB system.
  • In non-verbose (the default), the binding will poll the player every 10 seconds to update play time, track and chapter information instead.
  • In order for the direct IP connection to work while the player is turned off, the Standby Mode setting must be set to "Quick Start" in the Device Setup menu.
  • Likewise if the player is turned off, it may not be discoverable by the Binding's discovery scan.
  • If the player is switched off when the binding first starts up or if power to the player is ever interrupted, up to 30 seconds may elapse before the binding begins to update when the player is switched on.
  • If you experience any issues using the binding, first ensure that the player's firmware is up to date with the latest available version (especially on the older models).
  • For the older models, some of the features in the control API were added after the players were shipped.
  • Available HDMI modes for BDP-83 & BDP-9x: AUTO, SRC, 1080P, 1080I, 720P, SDP, SDI
  • Available HDMI modes for BDP-10x: AUTO, SRC, 4K2K, 1080P, 1080I, 720P, SDP, SDI
  • Available HDMI modes for UDP-20x: AUTO, SRC, UHD_AUTO, UHD24, UHD50, UHD60, 1080P_AUTO, 1080P24, 1080P50, 1080P60, 1080I50, 1080I60, 720P50, 720P60, 567P, 567I, 480P, 480I
  • On Linux, you may get an error stating the serial port cannot be opened when the Oppo binding tries to load.
  • You can get around this by adding the openhab user to the dialout group like this: usermod -a -G dialout openhab.
  • Also on Linux you may have issues with the USB if using two serial USB devices e.g. Oppo and RFXcom.
  • See the general documentation about serial port configuration for more on symlinking the USB ports.
  • Here is an example of ser2net.conf you can use to share your serial port /dev/ttyUSB0 on IP port 4444 using ser2net Linux tool (opens new window) (take care, the baud rate is specific to the Oppo player):
4444:raw:0:/dev/ttyUSB0:9600 8DATABITS NONE 1STOPBIT LOCAL

# Channels
