Since I am in the pool for the next round of bdp-83 ea's there are a few questions that I need answered before considering actually joining.
One question was answered by you a few post ago. That was can the bdp-83 decode and output HD audio formats to pcm and send over hdmi. It can, if I understand right. I would be interested in how you would compare the oppo's onboard decoding to the decoding done in the pre/pro or receivers? Bob, how do you rate the decoded pcm sent to the D2 vs bitsteam sent to D2v?
Since the BluRay movie companies (WB, Paramount, NewLine) all seem to default to different audio (lossy vs Lossless HD) when a disc is played, is there an easy way to identify and change the audio track on the fly?
If I understood the review I read on the bdp-83, you can set it to send out the video in its native format- 480i for SDVD, and 1080i/60 or 1080p/24 for BR. Since I will be doing my video processing in the D2 it would be nice to be able to have this done automatically, or be able to choose to send SDVD at 480i by way of a menu setting in the Oppo. Is this possible?
Bob, do you use DVD1, DVD2, etc. to view sdvd and BR or just one for all?
Does the Oppo send SACD (and DVD-A when available) pcm via hdmi?
Forgive me for singling out Bob P. for these questions, but I know he used the bdp-83 with the D2, so he is qualified to answer these questions. If any one else can answer, please feel free to do so. Thanks,
