Bob, I knew I could count on you.
I had sworn off being an early adopter back when I bought my first Flat Screen DLP 50 incher for $4,500.00! Perhaps I should use my 30 day return and wait for Oppo to address the bugs and then get a ready for market product......(I still love you Oppo!)
Do be sure you saw my second post about the likelihood of a setup error in your Receiver since you are now bypassing it for video. Fixing that may reduce the error, for shiny disc playback in particular, below the level you can spot it.
