I have an Oppo BDP-83. The disc tray had an issue a few years back. Oppo fixed it for free even though it was out of warranty. Thank you Oppo. Now it refuses to play Blu-rays, loads then reports "no disc". Tried multiple Blu-rays. It plays DVDs. Oppo support replied to my service request, I reset and reloaded firmware to no avail. Oppo wants $79 to fix. I'm wondering if money isn't better spent by buying a new player. Not sure I want to stay with Oppo, great service, but then I only know that because of issues with the player. frown.gif

What other Blu-ray players are highly recommended and can do vertical stretch?

Search only turned up a 2006 thread.

Thanks.

Well if anyone is interested, Oppo came through with flying colors. I am local to Oppo, dropped it off about 11 AM. by 3PM I had a call that it was ready. Oppo rocks!

I only know of the OPPO BDP-103. I picked up a refurbished one for $415 though I don't see it on their site anymore so it might be sold out for the time being.

It looks like you got it fixed so it may be a moot point.

Does the 83 doe the v-stretch too?

How do you like the Oppo 103, with verticle switch, are using a lumgen or anamorphic lens?

Awesome! So many features and very well built. Solid like a tank. It doesn't feel like plastic and fragile as many other cheaper players do. If you've ever seen the Toshiba HD-XA2 HD DVD player (which I also own), it would be on par w/ that. Top of the line for it's class.

It's definitely worth the investment!

I use a Panamorph 480 Anamorphic lens and have no issues so far. The remote has a button for zoom and the first setting is for vertical stretch. So very easy to use w/ out having to go in to a menu to turn off and on. And it works in 3D mode, which many projectors that have vertical stretch don't.

What's your setup? What are you trying to do?

AFAIK, only OPPO does a vertical stretch. PHILLIPS offers ST shift like the OPPO.
