just to be sure about this, i'll take the disc to a friend who has a region A only BDP-83.
will report back...
Edit: maybe the mod makes the player an "all region" player !
The Pianist, as i said earlier, is Region B;
i tried it on a BDP-83 that is Region A only, and had a notice on the screen saying something to the effect that Region B can't be played on the machine.
It does seem like it's auto changing or, more probably, the mod makes it an "all region" Blu-ray player.
1. Since i don't have a 3D board, I ensured the Anthem did no processing of its own. It was done in the Oppo so yes, it was passed through unprocessed and simply set it to output the RGB color space and match the input and output resolutions to the Kuro.
2. Yes, the Kuro seems more accurate in RGB mode.
PROBLEM with 24p processing?
The Oppo is FAILING the 24p judder tests on this new S&M disk(I'm using the HD version of the disk). These tests are in the Video Processing -> 24p and Video Processing -> Motion -> Stock Ticker or xXx Parade or Sarah on a Hammock tests. The images are supposed to be smooth but they shake as though some internal 2:3 to 60Hz is happening.
I've set the Oppo to always output 24p video if it detects it.
I have a direct connection from Oppo HDMI_1 to the Plasma bypassing my AVR and Darbee. The same judder is seen using HDMI_2 as well. Anyone duplicate this problem?
The plasma simply takes a 24Hz signal and converts it to 72Hz (simply repeating the same frame 3 times) so no real processing is done internally.
The xXx test is really mis-named to say the least...
"Sarah on a Hammock" repetitive clip is really calming and addictive!!! ...at least to this almost 50yr old single male. If only I could make a live wallpaper from it.
