It plays all burnable formats, even the $0.20 per dvd+rs. You need to slow the burn down to 4x though. With higher quality media 8x-16x is OK.

Macroblocking is minimal, I noticed no pinkness in the Hulk sand dune scene. This was done on a 40 inch LCD TV.

If you wish to contact us via phone, our number is 650-961-1118.(Mountain View)

We have a 30 day warranty. No questions asked.

To me, motion seems smooth as butter, I cannot comment on the audio quality as the testing was done via the default speakers. It seemed normal. (I'm also not a audiophile)

The DVD player both PAL and NTSC formats.

A firmware will be released with updates for the memory of the settings. It will be availble via a CD Image(.iso). It'll be availible in a few weeks. Oppo is manafactured by BBK(Winbase export brand), a company that employs over 10,000 people.

I'm not a techie, so I don't know wheter SACD/DVD-Audio will require a new chipset, or a firmware upgrade. If the latter the case, one can expect a firmware update including it,

It handles blacks fine, tested it with Startrek TNG Season 1, Disc 4. Didn't notice any glaring artifacts during the space scenes.

The reviews were put up by our web designer, who wanted to see how it would look, we took them down. Sorry about any misunderstandings. The site is still in beta phase.

We'll be at CES2005, along with the manafacturer. Many representatives departed yesterday.

I didn't notice any cropping with the machine, however I believe that problem is more display related then player related.

Thank you for ordering. We wish to see more business from you in the future. We plan on introducing a line of LCD TVs. Other markets may be explored.

Will the firmware address the forced stretching of 4:3 material?

Also, how will we request the firmware update CD? Will there be a website to request it?

Thanks Oppo.

The firmware update CDs will be downloadable as a image, they will be availible by the end of this month. The engineers in China happen to be celebrating new years.

No, you cannot change resolutions in the middle of a movie. You need to stop it and then change it. You'll be at the same position after resuming however.

It plays PAL discs on NTSC TVs like my Harman Kardon DVD player does?

Your mom is a classy lady!

You put the CD in, it automatically reconizes it and takes you to the firmware update program.

Yes, It plays PAL discs on NTSC tvs.

Thanks for taking the time to spend with us answering questions tonight. It sure sounds like this is going to be a very good player, after the few mentioned issues get resolved. I am looking forward to getting mine (should be here on Monday).

Will the firmware be downloaded from www.oppodigital.com, or a site associated with BBK?

Celebrating New Years! don't they know that they should be living their lives only to satisfy our insatiable desires for immediate gratification?

OppoDigital,

Thanks for showing up in the forum. This gives me a vote of confidence in your product. Like a lot of people here, I have been struggling for 8 months on what DVD player to buy for my home theater and I am ready to push the launch button to buy this player.

Please feel free to chat whenever you want, we will listen.

I'm certainly not happy with my inability to take a decent screen shot with my Canon S45. Here is a facial closeup from the Bourne Supremacy. The Oppo certainly shows more shadow detail than the Momitsu; her chin is slightly visible on the Oppo. This shot does show a slight yellow or golden tint, or maybe the Momitsu has a bluish or cooler tint. I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this. I'm not aware of it when actually watching a movie.

Edit: Attached photo is one of my first attempts at a screen shot and is very underexposed. It is not a good example.

Good way to support the troops.
