Has anyone had trouble with that movie i also tried a second copy.
I have the new public beta firmwe installed, but have tried the last 2 official
firmwares with the same result.
You are saying the player literally powers down? Not just simply goes to Stop mode?
There's nothing a disc can do, even a faulty disc, to force the player to power down, so something else is going on and the disc is just triggering it somehow.
First turn HDMI CEC OFF in Setup to make sure the power down command is not coming from some other piece of equipment in your theater. HDMI CEC is the protocol which lets devices control each other via the HDMI connection.
If that doesn't do it, then I suggest you re-install the firmware and do a reset of the player:
1) Download a fresh copy of the current "Public Beta" firmware for your player. Unzip it on your computer and put the resulting UPG folder on a USB memory stick. Do the Eject operation in your computer (so that it finishes writing to the USB stick) and remove it from the computer.
2) Power up the Oppo and jot down your personal settings. Remove any disc in the tray.
3) In Setup, Erase Persistent Storage and then Reset Factory Defaults. When the Easy Setup Wizard finishes, power down the player.
4) Disconnect anything connected to the rear USB or eSata ports, including the Wifi stick if you are using that. Put the USB stick with the firmware in the front USB port.
5) Power up the player. It will find the firmware on the USB stick and offer to do the install. Let it do so. Note that more than one piece of firmware may be installed. When it is all done it will power down the player automatically.
6) Remove the USB stick.
7) Power up the player. Erase Persistent Storage again. Reset Factory Defaults again. When the Easy Setup Wizard finishes, power down the player.
8) Pull the wall power cord for about 10 seconds.
9) Re-attach whatever you normally use on the front and rear ports.
10) Power up the player. Re-enter your personal settings (with HDMI CEC OFF).
11) Power down the player one last time. (Settings are save during the power down cycle.)
The "extra steps" above are intended to maximize the odds that nothing can possibly survive from the prior firmware install to cause issues with the new install. It is a "belt and suspenders" way to install firmware.
Try that disc again. If you have the same problem, contact Oppo tech support as your player may need hardware service.
Since you are only having problems with that one disc, they may ask you to loan them the disc first so they can verify there really is nothing on the disc that is somehow crashing the player. But as I said, even a faulty disc should not be able to force the player to power down. If the disc is simply dropping into Stop mode unexpectedly then that is most likely an unrecoverable read error on the disc, which could mean a faulty batch of discs (it happens). If you have the unexpected Stop problem on more than one disc, then that could mean the laser lens in your optical drive needs to be cleaned.
