Re: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Firmware Updates

It has been out a little while but Oppo have a new firmware as below...

Firmware Release:

Latest Version

Release date: January 5, 2010.
Category: Latest Official Release

Main Version: BDP83-48-1224
Loader Version: BE2650 or BT0350
Sub Version: MCU83-25-0811

Release Notes:


This version is designed for both the standard BDP-83 and the BDP-83 Special Edition. Comparing to the previous official release version BDP83-40-0925, the major changes included in this version are:

1.Blu-ray Disc compatibility improvement, especially for certain titles such as the European version of "Terminator Salvation", Indican's "The Wonder of It All", and "(500) Days of Summer" from Fox.
2.Subtitle shift feature. During playback, press and hold the "SUBTITLE" button to activate the function and then use up/down arrow buttons to move the subtitle. The shift position is saved in the "Video Setup" - "Display Options" section of the setup menu. This feature is useful for customers with 2.35:1 projection screens.
3.OSD position feature. The OSD (On-Screen Display) can be moved to work together with the subtitle shift feature. There is a new setup menu item in the "Video Setup" - "Display Options" section for this.
4.Auto mode for HDMI Audio format. The new "Auto" mode enables the player to use bitstream audio output for audio formats that are supported by the A/V receiver, and LPCM for formats that cannot be decoded by the A/V receiver.
5.Setup menu changes. Some items are re-grouped into the "Display Options" sub-menu under "Video Setup". Some items are re-ordered in the menu structure to improve the ease of use.
6.Experimental feature - home network streaming. This feature can be accessed from the "My Network" icon in the "Home Menu" screen. It requires a DLNA-capable media server running on your computer. The supported media types are the common set of what the player can decode and what the media server can stream.
7.Experimental Feature - BluTV. This is an interactive television service that will initially feature channels such as casual games, widgets and movie art. To use this feature, the "BD-Live Network Access" item in the "Network Setup" section and the "Secondary Audio" item in the "Audio Format Setup" section of the player's setup menu must be turned on.
All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

Please note that the experimental features are not officially supported and we cannot offer technical support via email or phone. The OPPO Wiki located at wiki.oppodigital.com will be gradually expanded to cover these experimental features.

Re: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Firmware Updates

A new Beta firmware has been released...


http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-b...-50-0323b.aspx

Release Information:

Release date: March 29, 2010.
Category: Public Beta Version

Main Version: BDP83-50-0323B
Loader Version: BE2690 or BT0390
Sub Version: MCU83-27-0326

Note: This release is still a beta test version, not an official release. Use it only if you would like to experiment with the new features and improvements. There is a small chance of the new features and improvements not working properly. If that happens, please update your player back to the official firmware release.
Release Notes:

This public beta version works for both the standard BDP-83 and the BDP-83 Special Edition. Comparing to the official release version BDP83-48-1224, the major changes included in this version are:

1. When there is no disc playing, the player shows the OPPO background screen instead of the "Home Menu". The "Home Menu" can be accessed by pressing the "Home" button on the remote control.
2. Improvement to MKV compatibility. Some MKV files do not play or play with severe video artifacts when using previous firmware. This version improves the playback of such files.
3. Some users have reported hearing pops or crackles between SACD tracks. This issue happens to certain discs that have data frames that are not aligned with track boundaries. This version removes such pops or crackles.
4. Other general disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.

All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

It has certainly worked fine for me with NO glitches at all, overall it seems a worthy improvement over past updates, infact there is the official firmware release for this one now...

Release Information:

Release date: May 5, 2010.
Category: Latest Official Release

Main Version: BDP83-50-0424
Loader Version: BE2710 or BT0410
Sub Version: MCU83-27-0326

Release Notes:


This version is designed for both the standard BDP-83 and the BDP-83 Special Edition. Comparing to the previous official release version BDP83-48-1224, the major changes included in this version are:

1.Traditional splash screen. When there is no disc playing, the player shows the OPPO background screen instead of the "Home Menu". The "Home Menu" can be accessed by pressing the "Home" button on the remote control.

2.Improvement to MKV compatibility. Some MKV files do not play or play with severe video artifacts when using previous firmware. This version improves the playback of such files.

3.Fix for the SACD pops/crackles issue. Some users have reported hearing pops or crackles between SACD tracks. This issue happens to certain discs that have data frames that are not aligned with track boundaries. This version removes such pops or crackles.

4.Revision of the RS-232 control protocol. If the player is equipped with the RS-232 wired control option, the new protocol adds three verbose modes to enable command echo back, automatic status update and automatic program counter update. For a complete list of RS-232 protocols please refer to the OPPO BDP-83 RS-232 Control Protocol V2 document.

5.Improved volume control function for the analog audio output. Volume control was previously implemented using the DSP (Digital Signal Processor). This version utilizes the DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) chips to perform volume control. This change brings the following benefits:
■Fix for the subwoofer hum that happens when the player's volume is set to less than 100 while outputting SACD in DSD format over HDMI;
■Volume control in DSD mode for SACD. Previously volume control does not work for DSD mode. With this version, all analog audio outputs of the BDP-83SE and the dedicated stereo output of the BDP-83 can apply volume control in DSD mode. (Note: OPPO recommends setting the player's volume at 100 and using the volume control of your amplifier or receiver.)

6.Fix for a compatibility issue with Sherwood Newcastle R774 A/V receiver. The issue was no audio signal over HDMI when playing a CD.

7.Other general disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.

8.Minor changes to BD-Live and BD-Java behavior. Erasing the persistent storage from the setup menu now erases both downloaded BD-Live contents and Java-based bookmarks. BD-Live access is set to off after resetting factory default settings. If you prefer to have BD-Live access, please turn it on from the setup menu.
All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

Re: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Firmware Updates

A public Beta Firmware has been released for the BDP83...

Release Information:

Release date: August 24, 2010.
Category: Public Beta Version

Main Version: BDP83-52-0816B
Loader Version: BE2731 or BT0431
Sub Version: MCU83-27-0326


Note: This release is still a beta test version, not an official release. Use it only if you would like to experiment with the new features and improvements. There is a small chance of the new features and improvements not working properly. If that happens, please update your player back to the official firmware release.

Release Notes:


This public beta version works for both the standard BDP-83 and the BDP-83 Special Edition. This version is designed for both the standard BDP-83 and the BDP-83 Special Edition. Comparing to the previous official release version BDP83-50-0424, the major changes included in this version are:

1.A small number of Blu-ray discs with Dolby TrueHD audio exhibit a momentary audio drop-out issue if the player is connected to an A/V receiver via HDMI and bitstream is selected as the HDMI Audio format. This version fixes the issue.

2.Certain SACD discs with many short tracks or with a long track following several short tracks can cause the player to freeze during playback. This version fixes the issue.

3.The previous firmware version displays the time counter slightly too fast when playing SACD. This version fixes the issue.

4.Support for LPCM audio streaming over home network is restored. The previous firmware did not carry this feature over from older versions. Please note that home network streaming is an experimental feature. You will need a computer running UPnP or DLNA streaming server software that can support transcoding to LPCM in order to use this feature.

5.Fix for the issue of incorrect video size when playing some Blu-ray discs, such as “Patton”.

6.Other general disc and media file compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted samples.

All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

Re: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Firmware Updates

I have loaded this beta version and NO problems so far, the 5th of May release is still the main official version and updating is not necessary if you do not experience any problems with your player.

Re: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Firmware Updates

Hi
Well may be it's pure coincidence but my troubles began shortly after installing this Beta version.
Now when I play anything with Hires audio (bluray, SACD or DVDA) I get 10 to 15 minutes of normal play, then dropouts in audio for a couple of minutes, then no audio at all. No problem for Video.
thought I should share.

Yes you may well experience problems depending on what HDMI equipment you are using that is why it is a Beta and you should report any problems back to Oppo, I am still using the official firmware as it does what I want more or less perfectly but it is up to users whether or not they want to use it.
