Okay... The 993H is released, so let's hear some beta tester reviews, please.

???

You mean actual reviews of the production 983, don't you? Another couple days...
post #2133 of 2145
Yes.. of the production model.

I'm just looking forward to people's opinions and comparison's who have used the product.

As mentioned earlier in this thread, Oppo's Bluray Player is a long away off, its only in pre-planning stages in terms of getting the necessary licenses and such, there is no tentative release date any time this year.

Thanks for that info. My Integra will decode, so I will have to decide between the 980 and 983 for now, and wait for the BD players to work out their handshake issues and firmware.

I've posted my 983 beta summary notes in the other 983 thread:

Hi all,

Can anyone answer for sure whether VOB file playback from a USB stick on the 983 will use the ABT chips and go out the HDMI???

Thanks in advance.
post #2137 of 2145
As I understand the player's design, all video playback that goes through the HDMI output will go through the ABT chips.

I'd like to suggest that we start migrating discussions to the Future Official 983H thread that neuromancer started the other day, since it'll be easier to find questions and answers as folks start receiving their players without the couple thousand "waiting for the 983H" posts.

I second the motion, I now have my FEDEX tracking number. See you at the new thread.

I have migrated to the Future Official 983H Thread for all those who have inquiries. I will still check here, but the main posting will be at Future Official 983H Thread

It can, but you will not get any of the IFO/BUP benefits, so you will get no menus, alternative audio or subtitle streams, and each VOB file will have a long pause in between as the player buffers up the next content.

Press Pause then the Forward or Reverse buttons to frame step one fram back or forward.

PoopScooper,

Can you update my thread to remove the "Future" and "Pre-Order" portions? Only then will I not be shedding a tear for this thread.
post #2145 of 2145
I added OPPO to the title too.

This thread has served it's purpose (and then some...). Please use the new "official" thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1001832
