Great player - amongst the best I own.
Sorry to bump, but I found a hidden feature/glitch people might be interested in. Couldn't find anything about it in search. Anyway, I found a way to disable forced subtitles on DVDs. Not talking about burnt subtitles in the picture, but those forced upon you by certain discs (usually European) for legal reasons. Normally you have to take the disc, transfer it to your computer, rip and put it through a program to disable them, and burn a DVDr. A very annoying workaround. If you try to disable them through the Oppo, either through the setup menu, or through the Info button during playback, it automatically reverts to displaying them again regardless.
This method worked for me: insert and play the film you want, press stop, then stop again to return to the start of the film, then press play. When the disc resumes from the beginning the subtitles will not appear - presto! You can even go into the Info section while playing and under subtitle it should read "off". This worked for all the discs I owned that force subtitles. I think the reason it does this is because when you stop the movie, and effectively restart it again, you're bypassing the menu screen where the automatic activation of the subtitle is made. It's like jumping straight to the film and not letting the disc tell your Oppo to display the unwanted text.
Anybody else feel like trying it out to confirm? Like I mentioned, it worked for me, and I'm extremely happy about it! Edit:
Just found out something: When you stop the film, make sure it is at least at the second chapter of the disc when the film is playing, otherwise it can't restart to the beginning with the second stop, and therefore when you press play, it will resume and the forded subs will still be present.
So, new instructions:
Play film, wait until it reach at least the second chapter. Press stop, stop again, then press play. The film will restart at the beginning and the subs will be gone.
