The BDP-80 seems like the perfect OPPO player for those of us that don't have very many DVDs anymore. I think I would have to retire my LG 390 if this player had streaming capabilities.

The BD-80 looks like a perfect player for my setup but I would really like Netflix and other streaming options.


I also assume the BD-80 will output 480i over HDMI with SD DVDs. Will it output 1080i over component and 1080p/24fps over HDMI at the same time?

The features and functions are pretty well detailed by Oppo, and the manual is also available:

It looks like they dropped ABT



They should have dropped analog, component, etc and made an 83 with a single HDMI connection.

That's what I was hoping for. A pure digital transport with ABT and HDMI output only. DVD upscaling is what usually sets Oppo apart from the crowd.


Instead we get average upscaling and a plastic face plate. For almost $300, they could have at least kept the aluminum faceplate. No plastic faceplates go in my system.

I notice that the BD-80 has BD-Live and 1G storage. Doesn't this provide streaming capability?

Why did they add S-Video when the bdp-83 does not have it?

I have to say this player hits absolutely perfect for me. I went through a major upgrade in Fall of 08 and bought the DV983. It wasn't that much longer the BDP-83 came out for not a whole lot more than what I paid for my 983. It is one of the few things I have had bad timing on so I didn't want to jump right back in on the BDP-83. I have just been using my PS3 in the meantime.


Now with this though this couldn't of worked out better and seems like a great deal. Since I have plenty of space and hookups I will just keep my DV983 hooked up anyway and use that for DVD playing and just use the 80 for blu-ray. Great news hearing about this new Oppo.

How do people still not get that this is a 980 with Bluray?! This is not a cheaper 83...

The streaming capabilities we're speaking of are DLNA streaming on a home network, and streaming services such as, Netflix, Vudu, and the like. BD-Live is a different animal.

This is comparable to the 983H/980H relationship. The 980H seems to have been a very successful player for OPPO. Since they're too small to afford to build every desirable permutation, they have to settle on the ones that are likely to be the best overall fits for their market. They have not got three player options:
  • BDP-80: entry-level player (SoC handles video processing, basic analog output)
  • BDP-83: upgraded video processing, upgraded analog output, fancier faceplate
  • BDP-83SE: further upgraded analog output and upgraded power supply

You could add several more options to this list (such as entry-level transport with no analog outputs or upgraded video processing with no analog output), but they don't do enough volume of business to justify that level of fragmentation.

Find another Blu-ray player priced under $300 that has an aluminum face - I can't think of one. Manufacturing aluminum faceplates costs money.


If you need an aluminum faceplate and ABT video processor, they have the BDP-83 in stock and ready to sell to you.

No. BD-Live doesn't guarantee streaming, it just means the player can support discs that have BD-Live content.


OPPO has been investigating options for streaming on the BDP-83 (as seen by the recent addition of DLNA support and BluTV), so at some point there may be a firmware update that adds some streaming capabilities. No guarantees, though.

Page 12 of the manual states in bold letters that it will NOT output over component when it is playing a 1080p/24fps BR disc with source direct selected.


The remote has a resolution button. So changing it to 1080i when I want to use my RP CRT via component will be easy enough to do.

WOW. 2 page "owners thread" and no one even owns one yet! This should be a good one. I plan on ordering one on monday as well.

be interesting to hook it up downstairs and feed source direct to my onkyo 3007 and compare scaling with the 83 in my system.

Chris

Maybe for at least a week I'll be able to keep up.



I'm in on Monday as well. I was considering some other players but not now!

Verified, picture via component drops when 1080p24 is playing with DIRECT mode on. With Auto its fine.

True, but the 980 was one of the best video players available for the price when it was released, I don't think the same is true for the 80. I don't see where there will be much difference in video quality between the 80 and BD players currently available for as little as $100. They may not have SACD or DVD-A playback, but your average consumer has no use for that anyways.

I can't think of any either. It's disappointing because it would probably add less than $10 to the cost, all the SD DVD players I have owned had them, most were under $200, some under $100.

Average consumer? That not the target market for OPPO, is it?

Since the Oppo BDP-80 has a new video section, I wonder if the zoom functionality of the Oppo BDP-83 has been retained.


I read on these boards that the BDP-83 has a special zoom mode that is perfect for letterboxed fullscreen DVDs (the ones with black bars to the left, right and to the top and bottom).


If somebody who got their hands on the BDP-80 could test this, that would be great. BTW, by design, the zoom modes are not supposed to be functioning in Source Direct mode.


Thank you.
