If so, can anyone share info about the settings and performance? My theater setup is at a weekend house, so I don't have much time to tweak out there. Can wait to get rid of my loud-as-hell first gen PS3. I'm betting the Oppo with my FPJ1 will rock...
I swapped out a Panasonic DMP-BD30 for the Oppo BDP-83. Definitely faster load times and works great for SACD and DVD-A. Setup of the Oppo was easy. I didn't adjust much (it came with latest firmware). I did set HDMI output to 1080p24.
I bought it for faster load time and universal function (SACD/DVD-A) mainly. Improved DVD playback and BDLive are nice, but I wasn't expecting tremendous improvement when playing DVDs. It can't perform magic while upscaling, but it's nice to know that it's pretty much as good as it gets. BD playback is going to crush DVD on my large screen, so being realistic was important in setting my expectations. I still need to see if there are any further tweaks and play around with the Spears BD. I have only set "1080p24 playback for DVD". I haven't dug any deeper. Most of my time has been spent setting up sound options in my setup.
I'm happy with my Oppo and FPJ1 combination along with my 7.1 audio.
