thanks for the very helpful replies. it is good to know there is nothing inherently wrong with my 83 and it's just showing its age vs newer bitstreams of info.

i don't have an Atmos system, so there really isn't loss for me to set the 83 to output LPCM data to my Emotiva processor which feeds a 7.1 speaker setup.

of course, i probably have no reason to not play BR discs on the Sony x800m2 since it loads discs faster and i'm assuming audio/video fidelity of the two players should be comparable. i can reserve the Oppo for its DVD upscaling and if my sturdy 777ES SACD player ever dies, i can use its analog outputs for SACD.

So an interesting development. My 83 came down with the sticking tray problem awhile back (probably a year ago, I think). So sent it in for the fix and it was back to being it's old reliable self. However, over the last couple of months when I press open with the 83 remote (or eject with my Harmony 665) the screen shows open, then loading, then no disc and tray fails to open. I have to press open/eject again and it opens and close like a charm. No problems when done watching. Everything works as it should. No biggie to have to double press but thought I'd post it just in case anyone has had this happen with their player. Thanks.

Email Oppo support. There might be a way to reset that drawer, there used to be. I think it has something to do with the torque adjustment.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is it a reset through a setting or an actual physical fix? I'm no techie on any level.

Too many years ago, but I seem to recall its something like turning the player upside down and using the little eject hole to open it. The 83 is the only player that has that little hole. The folks at support should still have that procedure. I just recall that this was a known thing with that loader.

So, as usual, support got back to me quickly and said-"We're not aware of a reset available for the drawer. You can try opening the player to clean the disc loader area to see if there's any build up of dust or other contaminates." Tried pulling the plug and plugging back in after 30 minutes or so and reset to defaults but no luck. Still a double press. I'll check your suggestion, though.

Cleaning the rails and slides is a pretty good idea. If you take the top off the drive and slide the drawer in and out you can see the mechanics.
