Unless you have a particularly problematic movie or other video, using these controls can only have a detrimental effect on the picture, in my opinion. The only ones that might be worth using on an item-by-item basis would be brightness and noise reduction, and then only in very small amounts. I have never found any reason to use any of them.

Thanks Jazz...


I actually do use the Noise Reduction, setting it at "+4" based on many back-and-forth discussions I had with Oppo via email and based on what they felt was the most optimum setting before detail loss begins to creep in from using this control...


I never would have thought of playing with Brightness via the player's controls; that's something I set on my display via setup discs using the black bar pattern...


Does Detail Enhancer on the BDP-83 actually "do" anything to high definition material...I mean, does it make details actually "pop out"?


Ideally, at the end of the day, I do understand -- and I'm a passionate supporter of -- the philosophy which suggests all picture adjustments should be made first and foremost inside the display or projector either via a professional ISF calibrator or via favorite setup disc(s)...

I agree adjustments should be made at the display.

(LCD - Sony KDL - XBR4) (Receiver - Sony STR-DA4ES)(Blu Ray - Oppo BDP-83) (PS3)( Dish Hopper DVR With Sling) Speakers (L & R - Paradigm Studio 20) (Center -Paradigm CC-470) (Surrounds & Back Surrounds - Paradigm SA-15R in walls) (Subwoofer 1 - Sunfire HRS-12) (Subwoofer 2 - Paradigm PW-2100)

It's my understanding that it is essentially a sharpness control which, to me, means it can introduce ringing. I have a calibrated Kuro and never fool with external adjustments.

I've search this thread and have similar problem of tray will not open ; I finally decided to contact Oppo customer service for service as problem persisted over 50% of time despite leaving disc in tray.

My experience mirror others and I wish to give Oppo Digital customer service credit where it is due:
* they responded to my emails within 24 hours (and on weekend days too)
*service turn around (once item received) was <5 days
* only charge was shipping to them (they covered shipping back to me and no charge for service (listed on their work order "replaced loader frame")
* machine was cleaned (it was only minimal dusty ) and they gave new cloth bag (one to be used for groceries)

In my opinion this is great customer service especially considering the BDP-83 was purchased in 2009. I've been OppoDigital customer since their 971 DVD player and this only re-inforces my remaining with them.
