Sure it sucks when things break, but you are in good hands with OPPO, so don't worry.
After not being able to view my Oppo on my Mitsubishi WD-82837 on both Friday night and Saturday, I decided to try again on Sunday. Much to my amazement, it worked. I watched it for about 5 hours and couldn't replicate the problems that I had on Friday and Saturday.
Oppo replied to my emails late last night. Rather than reply to them this morning, telling them that the player's working again, I decided to wait until I got home from work, just to be safe and try one more time.
Well, wouldn't you know it... I'm not getting a picture from HDMI again. So I called Oppo to talk to them rather than email them. The first thing that they had me try was to update the firmware to the beta version and reset to the factory settings. That didn't work. So, I called back and spoke with someone else. Using composite, he had me read him the video settings and had me try making some changes. But that didn't help. Then he asked me to connect the HDMI directly to the TV, bypassing the Onkyo receiver. That didn't do anything. Then, after talking to an engineer, he asked me to try it with a different TV. So I brought it to the bedroom TV and it worked.
Just to be safe, he then had me bring it back to the first TV and try it with the same cable that I used in the bedroom. But that didn't work. For some reason, it just won't sync up with my Mitsubishi (even though it worked with the Mitsubishi for nearly a month prior to having the problem, and then worked again on Sunday).
So, they're having me send it back to them to take a look at it. However, they're not particularly confident that they will be able to find the problem.
