Bill, maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but my experience yesterday with this most recent update clearly showed that it's important to not skip any updates.
After installing the update I noticed that my Loader Version # was different from what they listed. An e-mail to Oppo got me a quick reply (about 20 minutes) indicating I had missed applying the previous update (which they linked) with instructions to first apply that update, then go back and apply the current version. Evidently the previous update had the loader update while the current version didn't repeat it.
For various reasons I download an iso image of the update and then burn it to CD. which then goes into the player. It's quite possible that this particular method is the cause, but I thought it might be worth mentioning.
