Seriously, though, like the 83 fanboys keep saying, Oppo will get right back to working on new firmware for the 983 just as soon as their $500 BD player is finally released. Got that...?
Well, I'm not buying it.
I've been waiting for them to resolve the 983 vs. Z11 problem for about a year now. I currently have an 83 paired with my Z11 and it works so that problem has been overtaken by events. Unfortunately (for me) though, one of my 983s (I have two) is now connected to my Z7, and though it has somewhat different symptoms from the Z11, it doesn't work properly with the 983 either. My other 983 is connected to a V3800 and that seems ok. As I see it, Oppo is a small company with fairly limited resources so I can understand why there's not alot of incentive for them to fix this in a product that they no longer sell. However for those of us stuck with a non-working player, it is quite the pain.
