I think that it may be time to shut this thread down. Or, at the very least, create a brand new thread for people to talk about their A. not having received an email invite, B. having received an invite, C. what the response to that invite meant, D. when they are scheduled to receive/not receive their player, etc., etc., etc.
Please, people, if the numbers are correct as to the number of preorders, we're looking at the possibility of another 300 pages of this. Let it go. The player will be here eventually unless a giant meteor puts us all out of our misery.
And now, since I've added to the noise level myself, I'll ask an obligatory technical question: I've been following a thread over in the flat panel technology area on the inherent "judder" in 24fps content here
. One of the topics being discussed is the ability of some video processors to compute interpolated frames based on multiple content frames. Without reference to any
ideas of the desirability of doing this, who likes what, what the "creator's" true intentions were when Best Buy was born, etc., does anyone have any concrete observations on the Oppo BD83's capabilities in this area as compared with those of the Pioneer KRP-600M? And please, please, please
note again: I don't want my question to start a religious war: I'm really only interested in a comparison the the frame interpolation capabilities of the two devices cited above.
