I don't calibrate my display devices. I will do some initial changes to the global setting based on recommendations here and my own Mk I eyeball, but I have not ever felt the need to do a full-up calibration. However, I will ask a few questions about what you experienced, umenon.
Did you connect the Oppo to the exact same HDMI cable that your other BD player had been connected (either via an AVR or direct to the TV)? If not, was it through a different cable via the AVR, or into a different HDMI port on the TV? You might have calibrated your TV only for the HDMI port from the AVR (or your own BD player), so if you used a different port for the Oppo, the TV would not use your calibrations. (I can't check the Samsung manual right now to see whether it saves calibrations on a per-input basis or whether they are global, otherwise I'd know a bit more about that element.)
Can you be sure that neither your BD player nor the Oppo had any HDMI video outputs tweaks applied?
Just a few suggestions to understand what happened.
