Bill, you are a genius.

I've now started to convert to .avi with older Dixv codecs and it seems better.

The other issue I have is that it freezes/crashes with some files but that's probably related.

It's been a lovely machine so far and I recall you advising us when we purchased it.
The only other thing is the disc tray seems not to like to close sometimes, and seems to need a slight nudge down to re-insert itself. Anyone seen this before and can suggest a remedy?

People have reported their self-service efforts in the past but I don't recall the details. Are you comfortable opening the box and doing your own repair? Email OPPO support and describe the problem. They may have standard procedures for you to try.

Else, there is OPPO's reasonable fixed price out of warranty repair. It depends on whether you want to put money and effort into an old machine.

Cheers, Bill

Yeah if its not too delicate an operation I can do some repairs.

I'll get in touch with them. Or else perhaps wait for a more profound failure that makes fixed price repair more economic.

Thanks again!

Easily one of the best values in a BD player ever sold. FWIW, they are now selling used on eBay for more than they sold for new.

Same goes for my region/zone-free player.

When the time came to get a second BD player a few months back, there was still no better value multi-format region/zone-free player than the BDP-80 to use as a transport. I just finished playing my Wish You Were Here SACD.

Agreed.  And when the BDP-80 (in transport mode) is paired with an AVR having an Anchor Bay VP, well, it doesn't get much better ... except no 3D and limited streaming.

I just got my BDP-80 repaired and the very first movie I put in it is not supported and does not play. X-Men "Days of Future Past" Fox apparently doesn't send them copies of their movies and it was never tested. I doubt they will write a fix for it...so glad spent almost $100 to fix it.

^ Yep Fox has a long, sordid reputation for bizarre disc authoring -- part of their over the top approach to anti-piracy stuff, i.e., without regard to its impact on customers who've actually bought a disc. OPPO has said they are aware of reports against this disc, and will be looking for possible workarounds as soon as they get their copy into the lab.

Star Trek Into Darkness, from The Compendium release, has a lot of branching that Dolby TrueHD has an issue with. Bitstreaming to my receiver caused a lot of dropouts. When I switched the Oppo to LPCM, the dropouts went away. I kept my system set up this way.

But then I got Jurassic Park in the Spielberg set and the very first musical note in the main titles distorted in LPCM mode, but doesn't while bitstreaming. What a pain.

Welcome to the wonderful world of adaptive technologies which receive running changes to the specifications but no re-evaluation to ensure that they are fully compatible with all generation of hardware.

Release date: November 29, 2014
Category: Latest Official Release
Main Version: BDP80-26-1020
Loader Version: BT0500
Sub Version: MCU80-06-0118

1. Resolved a disc loading failure issue with the "X-Men: Days of Future Past (BD)" released by 20th Century Fox.Customers reported that after inserting the Blu-ray disc, the player would report "Wrong Disc" error and eject the disc. This is caused by the new "BD+" protocol (or Digital Rights Protection system) applied to this title which requires longer decryption time than the value allowed by the player. This firmware adjusted the decryption time and resolved this issue.

Nice to see that Oppo, unlike many of the big-name companies, still provides support and updates for the little brother in its family of blu-ray players. Nice!

Absolutely!

BTW, a day after Neuro posted the new FW update overhere, I got an e-mail from Oppo with the exact same info. Neuro seems to be faster in the draw, though

Oh, just a reminder for those like me having different region codes for DVD's (other than R1), you gotta run the Superdisk patch after every FW update, though

What a nice company to deal with

I, too, got the "Oops! Wrong disc!" message on my flat screen. Not having a single issue in the four-years I've owned my 80, I immediately knew it was a firmware issue. Hope to have the problem resolved so I can enjoy the X-Men: Days of Future Past Christmas present when I get home from work. Good job, Neuro.

I can't remember the last time I had any trouble with my BDP-80, but last night I was disappointed to discover that Season 2 of Star Trek TOS Remastered was randomly pausing throughout episodes on multiple disks.

Googling the issue shows that other blu-ray players have had firmware revisions to address the problem, but checking my Oppo's firmware update shows I have the latest version.

Le sigh.

Time to suss out the Oppo support contact info.

If it's any consolation, I watched "A Private Little War" on Wednesday with the new effects on my BDP-80. I haven't put the latest firmware on my Oppo yet and the disc played fine.

I'll try that episode and see if my latest firmware is to blame. (I guess it *could* be the disks, but I doubt that).

With the latest firmware my "A Private Little War" paused 8 times throughout the episode.

Rewinding slightly and pressing play did not pause again where it did previously; it continued playing for about 5-10 minutes where the same thing happened again.

So, it may be firmware, it may be the mastering on all the Season 2 TOS blu-rays, it may be I just got bad disks.

Oppo support has requested I send in a disk, so I'll send in "A Private Little War" and see what happens.

Okay. Let me know what happens. In the meantime, I'm not updating my firmware to the latest version. I couldn't imagine not being able to watch my Star Trek discs. I'm sorry you have to go through this.

The 80 does not restrict your rolling back to the prior firmware if you think it is the firmware.

The other thing you can try is reinstalling the new firmware followed by a reset of the player.

If you are using a Region Free hardware mod from a 3rd party, also try setting that back to your normal region, disconnecting it, reinstalling the new OPPO firmware, and trying a problem disc with it still disconnected, then again with it connected again.

Rolling back the firmware to the previous version initially seemed like a fix because "Amok Time" played without any pauses, but when I again viewed "Mirror, Mirror", the pauses were still there. I don't know whether they were at the same place, but the frequency was about the same.

I've sent in Disk 5 including "A Private Little War" to Oppo support, and hope for a good result.
