Hi Bob,

LOL. If I do it your way, I need to use my imagination but I'm too lazy to do that.

Have you tried using the "i" (Info/Display) button on your remote control?

I am sure I am in the minority here but I would love to see an LCD screen on the face of the oppo that would act as a video monitor so I could use the player for audio only with no monitor....

Not sure what you mean by that, but the HA-1 does not have a disk player and it's also stereo/2ch only, and does not use surround sound audio.
It does give some info, but not as much as it could, and it is not an optical disc player.
So what users want, is a full featured player like the BDP-105(D), but with a display similar to what the HA-1 has.
The HA-1 is a decent implementation of a built in display, but it is not even close to the same kind of unit that their universal players are.

I really hope Oppo has a new player that just wows me and meets even half of my suggestions in my first post - the bold ones being most important to me. I have to say I've loved every player I've bought from them but am looking forward to a big jump in streaming functionality. I love what streaming the Oppo has but I'd like something that is far more powerful in the next iteration.

^^ Dave,

Think I misread the post from guapote and got confused in replying...

Thought the HA-1 can be used to interface with the media player/PC and that the display would be configurable to include album/artist/track info.

I see that the intent is to use the BDP for playing shiny disks without using the TV and maybe add a small portable HDMI monitor like this one from Tontec: http://www.amazon.com/Tontec-Raspber...s=hdmi+monitor on the second HDMI output.

I'd like my next Oppo to have built in the ability to connect 7.1 (or more) wireless (signal) powered speakers at high bit rate. If they start selling speakers that put Bose to shame (easy) and include room correction software, it could be a game changer for their business model.
