Then your question would be very important to me (the time it takes to load).
...Plus, the faster it loads the better for me it is. Eg.; my Rotel CD player (RCD-991) loads in five (5) secs. ...Fastest: 4 seconds.
Right, but my point is if you've decided to watch/listen to some media and the load time is beyond a minute or two(your HD-DVD) at most are you not going to watch/listen? Maybe it's just me, but if I decide to watch something I don't care if it takes 5 secs or even 2 minutes to load, I'm still going to watch it. I suppose my question is, why is it better for you if your Rotel load in 5 secs or not, I'm just curious is all. I realize it's a metric that players are sometimes judged by, but is it really of any value?

If it didn't load at all, then that would be a problem.

Oh, now I see your point. ...That's a valid point, and I don't question it.

Altough I am not the guy with the Rotel, I wanted to give my opinion.

I guess we all have different levels of patience. If it took 2 minutes to load I would not be watching it, I would be reparing the window through which I would have thrown the player through! For me life is too short for waiting! When I went from a 100$ Sony player to a 103 when it came out, one of the many features of the 103 I loved over the Sony was its speed. I respect your patience, but I don't think the speed of a player is that irrelevant to most people.

I don't think it's the speed so much at the beginning when trying out new technology. When the HD DVD players first came out we didn't care how long it took, we were just excited about being able to watch an HD movie for the first time.

Right. But going from load times in the minutes to load times of 10-20 seconds is definitely a huge difference and one that most users will appreciate. Going from 10-20 seconds to 5 seconds really isn't a big deal to most people. If nothing else, it takes a few moments to go sit down after putting the disc in the tray and hitting the close button.

Agreed, there is a comfort range where any improvment becomes insignificant.

Hi

Could you help me with the following questions?

1. Oppo said its Qdeo video processing is really good. And Is it better than that in high end av receiver like Marantz 7009? And also what about its audio decoding compared to receiver? I am wondering if I output audio directly to receiver using HDMI , do I just not use oppo'audio processing?

2. Do you do split av so one hdmi goes to projector the other hdmi hoes to receiver? Or do you just use one hdmi output from oppo then go to receiver for both video and audio? Which one is better ?

3. Can I connect Apple tv to oppo using one HDMI input so I can watch content of Apple TV using oppo? Is there video and audio difference between this method and the method by which Apple TV is directly connected to receiver?

4. Can you recommend one mhl cable so I can connect my iPhone to oppo?

5. Why YouTube in oppo does not have functions like add to favorite etc? I fount YouTube in oppo is not easier to use?

6. I downloaded iPhone remote apps but I cannot use iPhone keyboard for input? Any solutions?

Thank you so much.

Depending on your receiver, you could/would/should use the audio processing from the receiver. That is my personal setup.

2. Do you do split av so one hdmi goes to projector the other hdmi hoes to receiver? Or do you just use one hdmi output from oppo then go to receiver for both video and audio? Which one is better ?

That is what most senior members here recommend, HDMI 1 to your display and HDMI 2 to your receiver.

3. Can I connect Apple tv to oppo using one HDMI input so I can watch content of Apple TV using oppo? Is there video and audio difference between this method and the method by which Apple TV is directly connected to receiver?

Yes, you may connect directly to the OPPO for better video processing, again depending on your receivers capabilities.

4. Can you recommend one mhl cable so I can connect my iPhone to oppo?

I will leave it to another member to respond on this one.

5. Why YouTube in oppo does not have functions like add to favorite etc? I fount YouTube in oppo is not easier to use?

I will leave it to another member to respond on this one.


6. I downloaded iPhone remote apps but I cannot use iPhone keyboard for input? Any solutions?

I will leave it to another member to respond on this one.


Thank you so much.
