^ This firmware does NOT address the various, older problems for which there were already well known workarounds -- e.g., use Bitstream output for DTS-HD MA 7.1 tracks, use LPCM output for TrueHD 7.1 tracks, and the procedures already described in the FAQ for dealing with movies which do not start from Top Menu (such as Erasing Persistent Storage). This firmware is SPECIFICALLY for this new issue of "Wrong Disc" errors, resulting from Fox's oddball, new authoring technique.

Note the BDP83-60-1110 FW update works on BDP-83 BD players in both USA and UK locations.

I've found nothing to make Stripes work, unfortunately.

Thank you Oppo for still supporting the BDP 83 with this firmware update. I am an original owner and have had no hardware problems with this player.
What are some of you buying as a backup blu ray player that is less than $100? Any recommendations?
Not ready to purchase another Oppo yet. Thanks!

I got the Samsung BD-H5900. Very highly-rated, even by Consumer Reports. $74 shipped from Amazon, though it's under the $68 Black Friday sale at other sites (NYS has to pay sales tax), including Samsung's own. The BD-H6500 seems to be the same thing, but with 4k video. It's a lot more expensive and I have no use for that.
