Yup.... I meant RF.
I just updated my Harmony 880 to code set 2 using the instructions I posted earlier from harmony tech support (confirming remote codes, etc.).
Easy and worked like a charm! I'm a happy camper now.... 981HD and 83 coexisting fine in my system.
I just finished comparing the 981 and 83 with Quantum of Solace (SD) prior to reprograming my remote.... so I had both playing at the same time (remote controlled both) and switched back and forth with the HM-31 switch.
Both load and switch chapters in about the same amount of time. I kept switching back and forth until I lost track of which signal I was on.
Initially I was disappointed. There was a noticable difference between the two pictures (one appeared much more vibrant with much better color depth). Unfortunately when I checked the HM-31 I thought the old 981 was the consistent winner
..... until I remembered I had reversed the inputs on the switch and the clear (very clear) winner was the 83
. This was even more impressive as before I remembered the switched inputs and after I was paying attention to which unit I thought was producing the signal I was still convinced that the 981 was the winner - Glad I was mistaken!
As for standard CDs the sound is absoultely awsome. I have HDMI -> bitstream and my speakers set to LARGE. Best sound I have every heard from my system. My only problem was with one set of Fresh Aire CDs..... 3 out of the 4 produce a loud vibration while spinning (only on th 83, not the 981). They are, however, obviously much thinner than any of my other disks. I've let Oppo know and will send them the disks. I doubt this is a bug in the unit as much as a problem with those CDs.
This is going to be a definite YES vote if nothing changes by Monday.
