I've been away from the media player business. Right now I own a Tvix S-1 which I really enjoy.

The thing is, I love my Oppo BDP 83 it's awesome but it has it's limitations.

What I'm wondering here is: is there any media player that can perform better than the Oppo newest models at the moment?

Taking a m2ts file from a Blu-Ray, playing the same disc and the same file on both hardwares.
Is there anything at the moment that will give me at least the same image and sound as the oppo player?

I can't really answer your question, but I just switched from a BDP-95 to the WD TV Live Streaming, and, just on the ability to read more file formats and use windows shares, I prefer the WD TV Live. All I have is a Samsung 43" 720p Plasma, so I can't really say much on picture, but it is comparable. I feed the WD TV Live into my DAC via optical, so I can't say much on that either. I rip all my media to a server, so no big deal on not having a disk player. If necessary, I can play those through my HTPC.

I feel bad when I forget a thread.

Thank you for your reply. I'm in the process of building an HTPC so I hope this will give me at least the same image quality.

Oppo BDP-83 has an awesome image but sadly it's media player capability sucks.
It's not exactly Oppo's fault. It's more like DLNA stupid protocol fault.

If Oppo BDP 83 support samba share that would be a whole different world.

Once again, thank you.

I would also take a look at the Dune HD. I am not saying that you will have regrets with building an HTPC, but your image quality will depend on more then just a good video card. If your going to use 7MC and Media Browser 3 with an external player you will be pretty much set. IMO. But someting like the Dune HD wil work great right out of the box.

I have the OPPO BDP-104 with the Roku stick, and thats all I use it for, BD and Roku apps. It's an awesome BD Player as you know.

The Oppo BDP-103 and 103D support SMB shares.

Yeah but with it's cost you can build an awesome HTPC.
Actually with Steam boxes starting to show up, you can get a really good htpc/gaming PC for $500. Which is basically Oppo's price.

Oppo has a lot of quality on it, don't get me wrong but it became a well known brand of high end product and this inflates the price.

Only way to get same image quality from an htpc is to use mpc-hc with madvr and some tweaking. Dont use vlc/wmp/xbmc built in player or your PQ will suffer. The only other issue you will get is what GPU did you go with a lot of them will not handle 23.976 without dropping/repeating frames could be as bad as every 40 seconds or as good as 1 every 5 minutes

I'm highly considering the 650 TI Boost that has the best cost x benefits. It's cheap and gets a lot of points on benchmarks (~3.500).

Last night I've tested XBMC and the quality was really good. I often use MPC-HC with MadVR but I must say XBMC did a pretty good job and it's really beautiful on the other hand.
It also has an automatic subtitle downloader add-on which is pretty nice.

MadVR sometimes gives me tearing on videos. I've tried to output at 24hz but this didn't solved the problem completely.
But I'm on a experimental build here using HDMI from my notebook.
