Agreed but I watch 5+ movies a week and have never noticed banding on this display. It could be the source material as well.

I would start by confirming you loaded the latest beta firmware and if you did not reset your player back to factory settings after the install do so. Otherwise I would report to Oppo.

I believe you had issues with the Oppo just pointing out to those reading the thread that not everyone does. I probably woukd have shipped my player back too if it would not play consistently.
