Would you like some help?
Which output are you using from the 93 and what settings are you using? Are you using the HDMI cable that came with the 93 (not that you have to, just asking for information)? Is there anything significant you can think of that's different in the settings you are using in the 93 compared to your 83? Which processor are you using? Are you also running the video through that processor, or do you have video cabled direct to your display?
Do give Oppo tech support a call. It's possible, of course that your particular unit has a hardware problem.
In the meantime, here are some experiments to try to see if we can isolate what's going wrong:
1) Set output resolution to 1080i (not 1080p and not auto -- again this is just for experiment)
2) Set HDMI color space to YCbCr 4:4:4 (not auto) for both outputs
3) Set HDMI Deep Color to OFF for both outputs
4) Set 3D to OFF
5) Set 1080p/24 to OFF
6) Set Secondary Audio to OFF
7) Set HDMI Audio LPCM (not auto)
8) Set HDMI CEC to OFF
9) Set networking to ethernet and disconnect the ethernet cable if you have one attached.
10) Set Firmware Notification, BD-Live, and My Network all to OFF.
Now, after setting those, as a last step erase Persistent Storage and then power off the player.
Disconnect any devices plugged into either USB port or to the eSATA port. Then disconnect the power cord for about 10 seconds. While the player is powered off, check that you are using HDMI 1 from the player to your processor and that HDMI 2 is disconnected.
Now power up and see if HDMI LPCM audio from HDMI 1 is working reliably. If not, power down and try the same with just HDMI 2 connected.
If HDMI LPCM is working reliably with these settings, try changing back to your preferred settings, one change at a time to see how far you can get before the problem returns.
