I just bought a ton of additional storage for my streaming server 27TB and I'll double it again before the end of the year. I can start ripping a lot more of my BR and old dvd discs. I really really hope Oppo gets their streaming capabilities provider for their boards to really up the functionality or picks a new streaming provider. The subtitles both forced and manual are my number one feature I'd like them to add as I watch a LOT of action movies and scifi movies that require subtitles as I don't speak Russian, German, Spanish, Aramaic, Farcie, French, Pandoran, Klingon, Elvish etc

Oppo (and other tech companies) need to include the option of bluetooth remotes. IR isn't "innovation." It's not "next gen." It's ancient **** and not everyone has HT setups that accommodate the stupid line of sight requirements well. Why is this sold school tech still being pushed in 2014? Hell, we had RF remotes for some things in the 90s, and those were awesome. Now we could have BT remotes but only the PS3 does. Honestly, I'm not paying $500+ for a BD player that doesn't give me the same option a PS3 from ~10 ****ing years ago does. I'd rather use a PS3 and enjoy the remote I don't need to point. Everyone needs to stop clinging to that old tech, and demand a future with universal bluetooth remotes or SOMETHING better than IR.

^A PS3 doesn't even come close to what the current Oppo models can do.
So you're claim that it is better based solely on a remote control feature is irrational and incorrect.
If you want RF functionality right now, then just go buy a RF remote or IR/RF extender hardware which can be had pretty cheap. There are plenty to choose from.

Having said that, I do think modern home theater and audio/video components should offer Bluetooth and/or RF remotes.
I have had that opinion for a few years now, and the technology is cheap, so I am not sure why it's so difficult for them to move away from the IR stuff.
There is the potential for some issues when you have more electronics in your house that may use similar coding, but that can be worked around pretty easily.

PS. Edited to add, that the current players do offer the remote app that can be used as easily as an RF remote.
So that is something where progress has been made.

IR is ok, works for me (with my universal remote), bluetooth is fine too, but IP based control like on the latest phone apps is where I'd like a lot of work put in.

Just my preference, it gives outside line of sight access and works fine within a device that I have handy. Also if the internals are exposed via an IP interface, there's a lot of good development that could be done (I'd love to play with a well supported IP interface).

Not everyone uses phones with apps. I build my own PCs, run linux, collect blu-rays, and use a 40 inch screen for movies, gaming, and as a PC monitor, but my phone is a flip phone. I don't do apps and touch screens. I want an actual remote.

Sure, different strokes for different folks. I don't use and overpriced smartphone with overpriced data plan either,
but I do have an iPad and of course other tablets, iPods, etc... work too.
You can get a RF remote fairly cheap these days, and as I mentioned too, IR/RF extender/repeater/converter etc... even cheaper.
Oppo even sells an IR extender that works with their players on their website.

Well...

Given your TV is the most likely device to offer 'the' optimal line of site to its IR detector. It's the ideal device to relay IR commands via HDMI (or another method) to all your other devices...

Sometimes it would come in handy if it showed the title of the file you are streaming on the Oppo screen.

I bitstream Audio (CD and ripped audio files) and video (sound spectrum visialization) from my laptop to AVR using wireless HDMI. Unfortunately my laptop cannot play SACD, so I use Oppo as a SACD player. But while it plays SACD, the only thing on the screen is the SACD info. I was hoping that Oppo can implement a simple visualization application so when I play CD/SACD, I wont be watching the SACD info / screensaver all the time. With pure audio, the screen goes off completely, it doesn't help.

Playstation 3 has done it, Oppo can do it too.

Pure Audio blanks the TV screen. Think of it as minimalist visualization.

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.

Maranatz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8(on order), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 Gen2 (on order)

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.

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.
