Not quite the same thing, but in the current OPPO 93 and 95 if you go into setup and change the On Screen Display to "Remaining" it will default to showing the "time remaining" in the currently playing track -- in both the Front Panel and in the On-Screen Display.
Setup > Video Setup > Display Options > OSD Mode
Whether or not you change that default choice, while the disc is playing you can use the Page Up/Down buttons on the remote to cycle between 4 display choices for the Front Panel:
1) Time counts up in current track (no indication of length of track)
2) Time counts up in total disc time (no indication of length of disc)
3) Remaining time left in current track counts down
4) Remaining time left in balance of disc counts down -- this would be closest to the display you are asking for.
These only show while the disc is PLAYING -- not just because you have loaded the disc with Auto Play OFF -- because unlike your prior CD players, the OPPO may be doing something else entirely even though you happen to have a non-playing CD in the tray. E.g., it might be playing Netflix, or browsing media files on an attached hard drive, or streaming from a DLNA server.
It's only when you start the disc playing that the player can know to give priority to the disc's own information in the front panel display.
