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. Or, they could simply team up with the likes of Tannoy...

What does that do for you? USB has to be fast enough to read files at the rate they will be displayed. Faster doesn't help.

I dont follow blu-ray players thread that much. So sorry if this has already been covered, but do you guys think there will be a new Oppo player release this year? Does Oppo introduce a new model every year?

Oppo usually only introduces new players when it's necessary to do so to incorporate new features that the existing hardware no longer has the horsepower or capabilities to handle. They don't introduce new models every year and I wouldn't expect to see a new Bluray player this year. As far as when goes, later next year would seem more likely.

I tried out the Oppo app for my ipad for the first time last night. For anyone who hasn't tried it is a powerful remote for your oppo. I don't like touchscreen remotes normally but this does one thing extremely well that you can't do from your Oppo remote or even your Logitech remote. It links to your media server and lets you search for the media you want to play. The only issue to be resolved in it, is it doesn't search subfolders. Once they improve that functionality feature it will be AMAZING. So if you have your movies in a folder called movies but break them up into subcategories - e.g. action, scifi, drama, comedy etc. It can't search through the subdirectories from the movie folder to find The Hunt for Red October but if you were in the right subcategory subfolder it finds it right away! I think the oppo could be really great for streaming if they added the ability to search subfolders from the ipad app.

I'd like integration with the Spectracal software, so you can calibrate the picture coming out if it.

I'd like it to function as a spectacular transport (given that atmos is taking place elsewhere.) - or atoms decoding within the player, with 16 xlr's on the back!)

I just got a BDP-103D, and there is one thing about it that is DRIVING ME CRAZY! The disk eject button on the front is impossible to see. It has a little light on it, BUT THE LIGHT DOESN'T STAY LIT! Grrrrr... I sit there wiping my finger all over the face of the unit trying to find that damn button. I am getting ready to put masking tape on the front of it to mark where the button is. That isn't right.

I just looked at mine and it's lit up. Are you sure you're not using the dimmer function?

It does light up, but after a little bit, it turns off. If there is a menu setting that makes it stay on all the time, I am up for it like white on rice.

Check that Setup -> Device Setup -> Front Panel Brightness is "Standard".

^ In addition the Light button (lower right on the remote) will, as a side effect, also temporarily light up the Front Panel regardless of the Front Panel Brightness setting.

Is this different from what you can get now with the thumbnail view of Artists or Albums? (The two option selection fields in the upper right of the OPPO media files Browser screen.)

I know with my Sony TV, it has a preview thumbnail of the MKV file for the videos in the folder you are viewing.

My list is short (beyond any audio/video improvements)

1) XBMC like front end for stored media playback via DAS or NAS or at least available on a hand held device (iphone/iPad, Android) as part of remote operations.
2) LCD screen that is on front of the unit that can slide up if need be and thus avoid having to have TV on to make some media selections (music files and discs come to mind).

Here is an example of the thumbnail display when using the OPPO for streaming vs. the Sony streaming built into the TV. One of the advantages of the Oppo is that when you click on a file to play it loads much much faster but the thumbnails on the Sony are nice.

^ Yep. Just saying, it's pretty much a Sony-only thing, not supportable in the current OPPO players (as far as I know) and unlikely something OPPO would put effort into for future players given the new standard that's coming.
