If you want the Oppo to play iso files you must use a firmware that was loaded to the machine prior to January 2012 update. FWIW- I have not had any new BD's that would not play properly due to not having the latest firmware on the OPPO. When that begins to happen often, I will make a decision to purchase a new set top Blue ray player for latest disks. I will not jeopardize my OPPO's iso play capability to play a new disk. My BD-93 is now completely disabled from any updates from OPPO. While there are many file servers such as popcorn and other devices on the market, only a few support 3D and none support 3D with original menus to play exactly like the original disk. Only OPPO did this last year.
I don't know anything about the Sony and AVCHD 2.0 but if you want to play safe and you really want the AVCHD 2.0 capability, following my strategy on one machine that works is probably wise. i,e, buy a new player for the updates. Keep what works from any new updates.
