None of the Oppo Bluray players, including the BDP-83, are DVD region free without a hardware or software mod (Superdisk is the software mod).

Sorry, my mistake. It does play my European DVDs but I just realized they are "region 1-6" and not region free as I said. Playing NTSC and PAL from factory is already a plus, though..

I was so happy without HDR...

If the discs say Region 1-6, that is the same thing as being region 0. They are all-region discs.

I know that. Because the 103 played European discs I assumed the player was "region free" but it is just PAL/NTSC compatible The fact that all discs I played were region 1-6, or region 0 as you say, made me confused . Again, sorry for my mistake.

Now Im confused.If you are playing dvd discs with regions from 1 to 6 on your 103 you are still in a great place since most of discs Im interested in are region 2.Its the damn blu ray region 2 discs that cut us off.

A disc that is "Region 1-6" is disc that has no region coding. He's not saying he can play discs that are coded for Region 1 or Region 2 or Region 3 ... or Region 6.

When?

When do you think we can expect a new player from Oppo?
Will they wait for 4K BD?

Oppo has said not this year and possibly not next. So most likely late next year at the earliest.

What features would you like in your next Oppo BR - e.g. Oppo BDP-113 and BDP-115.

The link above is to the part of this thread that talks about the release date of the next OPPO player. Lot's of back and forth about the release date. Some people disappointed some people not so much. I figure there won't be a good UHD media library till the 113/115 comes out anyway, UHD players don't matter a lot to me till there's a good media library to choose from. I have about 115 or so titles in my HD BD collection and I'll likely replace about 10% of them but not till the UHD title includes HDR and WCG.

Cheers,

Hopefully the crystal ball becomes a bit less cloudy with information from Berlin IFA in a few weeks. When you start seeing this industry finally move forward then Oppo can too.

Oppo and 4K Blu Ray

I do not own an Oppo, so I haven't done much research into them. I'm in the process of purchasing a new TV. With that TV, I will be purchasing a new audio system and blu-ray player. I see that 4K blu-rays will start shipping at the end of this year, as well as new 4K blu-ray players. My question is this- Will the Oppo's be able to play 4K discs with a firmware update? Or would they be rolling out a new model? If I were to purchase one, it would only be if the answer to my question was "yes." Thanks for your time fellas.

No. No current Blu-ray player (including the OPPO players) will be able to play the new discs, even with new firmware. Different hardware is required. Simply put, you'll need a new player designed specifically for the new discs.

OPPO has not announced when they might offer such a player, but they are unlikely to try to be one of the first out the door with such a player.

This is a market and set of technologies that will take a while to mature. Meaning the folks who do buy the first such players out the door (early adopters) are pretty likely to discover they will want to replace them much sooner than they expect. I.e., the same thing that happened with the first couple generations of regular Blu-ray players.

So considering the number of quality titles likely to be released in the new format early on, you might very well decide to bide your time with a regular Blu-ray player through at least the first year of the new format, while you see how things play out.

I didn't get my first blu-ray player until last year... I remember how much they were when first released, pretty damn expensive. Should I expect the same for the 4K players and just get a cheap $200 one until then?

You may not need to be concerned about making your plasma last as long as you can in that way, when I had that option on my Pioneer player I didn't use it because it was too distracting. How long do you want it to last? I'm also not sure that using grey bars instead of black would make a difference. I have an 8YO plasma that's had average daily use of about an 1.5hrs. The panel is just barely starting so show some greying (black not completely black) which is unnoticeable during most normal program content. A proper recal could very well fix this. I'm not sure you should worry to much about it. Your newer plasma should age better as well since it should be built on better tech.

It will be interesting to see if Oppo decides to launch a UHD player that can support 9.2.4 even if it is just through HDMi

I would love to see the BDP-115UHD D with

- 4K of course
- 12 bit
-13 Analog channels
- Dirac Live or better yet Dirac Unison

That's all for me

Oppo needs to solve how to support Memory and Automatic Resume for BR discs that use Java (like ST11).
I don't understand why they can't just keep their Java program running or suspended while I navigate or play other sources, and resume from the point I paused it, as long as the disc remains loaded.
I complained to Oppo:
OPPO Service <service@oppodigital.com>
Aug 24

Unfortunately if the disc uses BD-JAVA, then the player will not be able to generate a breakpoint if can resume from. This is a limitation of BD-JAVA and not something that we can adjust in a future firmware release.

From: Web App
Sent: Monday, August 24, 2015 1:42 PM
To: OPPO Service
Message from Contact Us Web Page

Note: Difficulty with BD pause and resume.
If I pause BD during playback, then navigate to the Oppo home menu to view any other source, when I return to the BD, it loses the current position and starts the BD from the beginning.
Is there something I can do to prevent this?
Is this a design problem that could be fixed with a firmware update?

All we could possibly do here is speculate as to why, but if they say it can't be done with a firmware update I'm inclined to believe them. Keep in mind that though many current players, such as the Oppo, or running on a Linux platform, they aren't general purpose computers. The thing that's currently playing is going to take up use of the MediaTek decoders, so once use of the decoders is passed over to whatever you're watching after pausing your BR and going back to the home menu, there presumably isn't a way to get back to where you were as the disc is effectively stopped at that point. And when a BR disc uses Java, there's no way for them to store bookmarks. This should be blamed on the crazy BR spec that allows for all of this nonsense, not Oppo. One solution to this is to rip your movies to a supported video file format, such as mkv and play those instead of the original disc. Not entirely practical for a movie you're renting or just planning to watch once, but a pretty workable solution for something you own and want to watch multiple times.

Of course, one's movie watching card (similar to a man card, but different...) should be taken away for watching something else before finishing the movie. I'm pretty sure that's considered a big no-no. It's ok to take bathroom / snack breaks, but nothing else.

There is nothing that prevents the Java Program on a Blu-Ray Disc from writing the paused position or any other information to BD Live Memory.

A good example of this are the Homeland Blu-Rays. I was pleasantly surprised after pausing an Episode and watching another disc that putting the Homeland Disc back in my player offered me the option of resuming.

Of course, the Media Companies will have to direct their programmers to implement this. Knowing that this capability is available should allow us, the ones with the money, to know what Media Companies care about their Customers!
