Well so much for that idea. I have done everything possible to reduce bandwidth, turned off 3D, etc...etc...to no avail. Watching a Netflix movie last nite (Fork in the Road, recommended flick
) the video (but NOT audio) dropouts got so bad, and I got so frustrated, I watched the last 3/4's of the movie on my LG BD570 and had flawless viewing. No video drop outs or even hint of a drop out.
And also, the problem was the worst I had experienced yet. Some dropouts were short (not so sweet) and others were a good solid 2-3-4 seconds long where audio played beautifully but I had no idea what was happening since I couldn't see what was going on. I spent more time rewinding (and unable to recreate the dropout which tells me it is the Oppo) that first part of the movie, I didn't get it finished till 2AM...I started it at 11:30 and it is a 90 or so minute movie. However, if I just let it play, the dropouts, tho unpredictable timing, surely reoccured over and over again.
Gotta admit, with the backlight not working on the remote
, and the video dropouts
, and the YouTube bricking the player untill power cycled
, well, the bad is outweighing the good, as the frustration levels are very high right now. Picture (when not dropping out) and audio are both pristine and I couldn't ask for any more. But with a really nice 73" Mits DLP, Denon 4310CI, APC power conditioner, and never an issue with the Toshiba HD-A35 HD DVD player, the LG BD570 blu-ray player, and a Sony DVD recorder, this leaves the Oppo as being the culprit.
I suppose I should contact Oppo...hate to look a gift horse in the mouth but gee whiz, this is driving me crazy. Then I have the family saying "So the Oppo isn't as great as you told us", it gets on a mans nerves...
And finally, why hasn't anyone said anything about the YouTube app? It is in the 95 thread, but not here in the 93 thread and not a word from Oppo? If something wasn't right with the LG BD570, that forum would be a flurry of activity and posts untill it was corrected.
