CIH pain... BD-Java Problems.
I asked Oppo why it's not possible to use VS with BD-Java i.e. using the zoom function. It works for the setup menu of the movie but as soon as the movie actually starts it reverts back to the dreaded letterbox format. I want to be able to stretch the image to use together with Panamorph fixed lens http://www.panamorph.com/cinevista/index.html and 2.35:1 screen.
And then use the 4.3 format in the Oppo to horizontally compress the image when using 16.9 format material.
Got the answer from Oppo within 1 one hour excellent. (please see below)
Anybody know why this limitation or have a solution that might work?
The JAVA BD discs run their own operating system and lock out some functions that the player would normally perform. One option for you is to rip the movie only and leave the JAVA behind.
The BDP-93 got pretty far with stretching JAVA discs, so far the 103 has not caught up. Also be aware that some of the operations you are discussing involve a loss of image resolution, so its good to keep that in mind.
