Thanks for your reply. You have also answered #3. Reason for # 3. "would bd-iso and dvd-iso file play back have the common menu functionality?" question was, at a few places I read that there was a possibility that certain media players didn't support the menu functionality in a BD-ISO, as would be normally usable in a BD player.
I don't know what a juke box type display is. My current media players are xtreamer and asus. They are simplistic in the sense that they simply display the content folders of my hd. I assume OPPO would display the same folders and I can open such a folder and then select the .iso files. I have about 400 movies on two hard drives. For example, the movie "Gold Finger" will have a file folder named "gold finger" on the hard drive and the folder has the .iso file in it, along with .jpeg for front and back covers (I don't really care about the cover .jpeg files anyway). That's the way they were stored. I don't want to go back and change all 400 files. So, can I use the oppo to see the list of these folders and select a movie from the folder?
The guy who is selling the oppo has not used its .iso playing functionality.. Hence my questions to you.
Since you have the dune and the OPPO... here is a repeat of my prior question.
1. I don't know what "tweakability" of an OPPO is. Typically, I don't modify the video settings on the DVD/BD players. Having said that, is there a visitble audio and video advantage for the OPPO?
I have a "feeling" that the OPPO would have superior picture but I don't know anything about the Dune..
After being a home theatre enthusiast for 17 years, I have just about run out of patience to "tweak" or "a/b" test.. I would rather rely on the advice of someone like you, who owns both units.. Yes, I am taking the lazy way out.. but thanks to avs, I am able to find knowledgeable people..
So.. thanks for advice.. and btw, what's your bottomline advice? oppo 93 or dune?
