A bit off-topic, but I'm just pasting down what I wrote couple days ago over at the 983H DVD Thread, which seems to me kinda weird behaviour though and maybe applies to the BDP-80 player as well:
just for the records, a couple weeks ago I decided to use the CAPTURE option on my 983 just for kicks, which replaced the default Oppo logo, though.
Having done that, after some days the video quality of DVD's became just plain horrible, sometimes blurred, sometimes kinda "garbled", with too much ghosting, colors totally undefined and so on. Audio quality was fine all the time, as a matter of fact.
Well, the first thing that came to mind was a faulty cable and I replaced the original HDMI cable for another one and I did it twice, without success.
Afterwards I started to think that the culprit was the 983 video processor, as it just started to fail out of a sudden though...
To make a long story short, yesterday evening I thought: why not returning to the DEFAULT mode ( Oppo logo ), rather than keeping the CAPTURED image?? Voila, everything came back to normal and my 983 is playing flawlessly the same way it did since day one; go figure...
Question though: what's the explanation for such an issue??
Hold on tight to your dreams - ELO
