Dear Beta Test Participants,

We are posting the first beta firmware upgrade for the BDP-80 today. The firmware can be downloaded from http://www.8digital.com/b80/BDP80-05-0821.zip You will be asked for a user name and password. Please use oppo as the user name and bdp80 as the password.

Network update is also available for this firmware. In order to pull firmware updates from the Internet, the player needs to have a previous beta version already installed.

Once all updates are installed, your firmware versions should be:

Main Version: BDP80-05-0821
Loader Version: BT0300 85750300
Sub Version: MCU80-05-0815

This version mainly contains some user interface change such as pop-up menu for audio and subtitle, and some setup menu re-arrangements. It also contains fixes for a few random and quirky operation issues.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

If you download the zip file and use a USB thumb drive to install, please follow these steps to install the firmware:

  1. Download the firmware from the above link.
  2. Insert a USB thumb drive to the computer that stores the downloaded zip file, and unzip the firmware file to the USB drive. Verify that the USB drive now contains a UPG folder, and inside the UPG folder there are three files BDP-80.BIN, MCU80.BIN and DVD430.BIN.
  3. Remove the USB drive from the computer.
  4. Turn on your TV display and the OPPO player. Make sure that there is no disc in the player and no other USB device is connected to the player.
  5. Insert the USB drive containing the firmware file to a USB port on the player's front or back panel.
  6. The player usually can recognize the firmware file and prompt you for firmware upgrade. In case the player does not prompt you, press the SETUP button on the remote control to enter the setup menu. Select Device Setup, Firmware Upgrade, and then Via USB.
  7. Please follow the on-screen instructions to complete the firmware upgrade process. Use the remote control to respond to on-screen prompts. Do not use the front panel buttons because the front panel buttons will stop working during the upgrade process.
  8. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN OFF THE PLAYER, UNPLUG THE POWER, OR PRESS ANY BUTTONS OTHER THAN NECESSARY TO RESPOND TO THE ON-SCREEN PROMPT DURING THE REMAINING UPGRADE PROCESS.
  9. In order to complete the firmware upgrade process, the player will turn off automatically.
  10. Unplug the USB drive after the player turns itself off. Turn on the player again after the firmware upgrade process is completed. Check the new firmware version by going to the setup menu, and then selecting Device Setup - Firmware Information. If you notice that the firmware versions displayed do not match the versions listed in this release note, please retry the firmware upgrade procedure from step 4 to ensure all parts of the firmware package are installed.
  11. (Optional) From the setup menu, select Device Setup, Reset Factory Default, and then choose OK to reset the player settings. Enter your customized settings as necessary after resetting.
  12. Congratulations! You have just completed the firmware upgrade. Delete the UPG folder and its content from the USB drive so you do not accidentally install the firmware again.


Your feedback is highly appreciated. Thank you very much for the help in this beta test process.

Best regards,

Jason J. Liao

Network update worked like a charm. Playing a CD right now before we head out for a bit.

"pop-up menu for audio and subtitle" Yeah!

The "HDMI Options" menu is gone. Its color space and deep color settings were moved to the Video Setup menu.


Dimmer is changed to, but I am afraid that the "Dim" setting is too bright this time.

Ya, there's barely any noticable difference between the bright and dim settings now.

Earlier today I was able to get a consistent power up hang by:


Leave the AVR (Onkyo Pro 886) off.

Power on with open button.

Insert a DVD.

Close the tray with the open/close button while hello was still showing.


This resulted in a hang more than half of the time.


I tested it about 20 times, so it looks good.

I even had my wife (she makes things break) try it and it works for her.


Looks good!

They are very close. The difference is probably smaller than my ability to judge the right settings.

I tell ya what... I had done several different things to tweak the PQ settings a while ago, and had been doubting if I did a decent job. (This was on the -83). I also have not been able to watch much in the theater the last couple weeks either. Then last night I decided to take time to sit down and watch Casino Royale BR.

WOW!... I was blown away by the PQ coming from my 720p LCD projector onto a wall painted with Kilz2.


I ain't touching no settings from here on out.

Possibly getting a new projector soon though... also possibly getting a divorce too
.

She's been more than understanding to date, so hopefully that will continue.

I am going to wait for another firmware update before doing a recalibration but I don't expect any significant difference between this and the BDP-83. This player sure appears to me that it is getting tweaked to optimal performance quickly. I find DVE so cumbersome that I prefer to not have to go through it several times for each player, once is enough for me.

I switched my attention last night to the 83 and played four SACDs. Then, I SAC'D out.



The availability of a download came up on the display after I booted up and before I did anything else - open tray, enter Setup, etc. With just one press of the remote, the 80 updated itself via Wi-Fi.



So, today while Bill passes by, I'll check things out.

S&M!


Although for color/tint, I still prefer the blinking pattern on the AVS HD 709 disc.

I'm playing a CD now, one that exhibited track number counting problems when played many moons ago on the 83. I doubt we'll see any such thing on the 80. I think its firmware has benefitted from the long gestation of the 83.


But, there's no OSD of CD info - CD title, artist and song title. Hmm.


Of course I usually listen with the display turned off - or with my eyes closed.

That CD played just fine. Now I'm playing a CD I burned from an album I bought on iTunes. Playing fine.


Not only playing fine but just reconnected the display and discovered disc info is up on the OSD - from the CD I ripped! I'll go back now and see if the commercial CD that didn't display now does. Oh what fun.


Added. Examining both CDs in my iMac indicates that the commercial CD has no track title info on it. Just track 1, track 2, etc. That may be because it's a sampler - the tracks come from different CDs. Concord Jazz which issued it may just not have bothered since the extensive jewel case booklet explains what and where the tracks came from originally. And it's © 1998.
