It is so frustrating because when I begin playing these sd dvd videos, it played fine for about 1/2 to 1hr than it starting to go blank on and off.
I am not sure why it has to be 1/2 to 1hr than the problem started to happen. I then turn everything off the next day, it will be the same, playing sd dvd music video 1/2 to 1hr than it started again. I first thought the sound play loud enough to vibrate the cable and loosen it. since the hdmi cable output slot already is loose.
Okay, I hate to keep throwing more variables into this.
But....now I'm wondering if there might be an issue with the player itself. Video processing generates a lot of heat, and maybe when your player is doing the work, it starts to overheat after awhile.
Just speculating. But it kind of fits if this problem ONLY occurs when your Oppo 83 is upscaling. Now keep in mind, if that is the issue, it should not matter whether you go through the receiver or directly to the TV; the Oppo would exhibit this behavior either way. So be sure to throroughly
test whether you get the same problem when directly connected to the TV. This is a critical piece of information as you try to narrow down the issue.
If this happens either way (through receiver and not), I would call Oppo. They're very good about replacements if there's a hardware failure/problem.
