It does seem to be a pain in the butt but how many times per use are people actually changing resolutions/refresh rates?
You're kidding, right?
Let's say I turn on my equipment, and the Oppo home screen comes up at 1080p60. I start BD playback. Previews? Maybe 1080p24, maybe 1080p60, maybe both. Regardless, every time the resolution switches, there's a risk of lockup. And then you get to the menu; let's say it's 3D. Another res change, another lockup risk. If it's not, great, but the movie might be 3D. Lockup risk. Well, now I want to watch some extras. Res change to 1080p60 or 480p from 1080p24(3D). Lockup risk. Now I have to pee so I hit stop and the Oppo home screen comes up at 1080p60. Another res change. Lockup risk. Now I'm back and I want to watch another movie so I pop in another disc...here comes another resolution change to 1080p24 and another lockup risk. And so on.
At any one of those lockups, you get to turn off the projector, wait for the fans to stop, pull the plug, plug it back in, turn it on, wait for the lamp to light up fully, and try to pick up where you left off.
So ya know what? I don't think anyone is making this a bigger deal than it is. it's a huge PITA and it needs fixed yesterday.
Now, if switching the Color Area from Auto to 4:2:2 (or something else) works, that's a workaround I can get behind. Forcing the resolution to 1080p24 is a non-starter.
