I received the OPPO 95 yesterday, spent a few hours playing with it, and my first impressions are very good. I’m using it ATM with a Panasonic G20 1080p plasma. I started testing some SD .avi files and it looks quite good, considering the low res, the upscaler is very good and everything looks great. I’m using the 16:9 Wide/Auto option, to make sure all the formats are displayed properly, without stretching the images. The TV system is set to ‘’Multi’.
Next I tested 1080p and 720p high quality .mkv files, and HD looks beautiful, as good as I hoped. I won't use the player with Blu-ray discs, for health reasons my hand dexterity is very reduced, so having access to movies and everything else through USB storage using only the remote without needing to deal with discs is great.
I’m having a problem with 2.35:1 content, though. When I try to play a movie with this format it starts playing as it should, with black bars above and below the image, but after 3 or 4 seconds the image is stretched, filling the entire screen.
If I try to press the ZOOM button on the remote several times eventually after a few other zoom modes it gets back to the way it should look, with top and bottom black bars… but after 3 or 4 seconds the images is stretched AGAIN, filling the whole screen.
I’m probably doing something wrong, but not sure what. Can someone please give some insight of what I'm doing wrong and how can I turn this OFF?
