Default OPPO BDP-83 Blu-Ray Disc Player

This is a thread rebooting the now defunct conversation in the original thread. I don't have a lot to say at this point other than lets keep it clean and and on topic, we're talking about the Oppo BDP-83 player. All comments are welcome about this player Party on wayne!

I picked mine up in their office earlier this week. I am quite impressed with it so far. A few quirks as with the previous players I've owned from them, but so far it has handled everything I've thrown at it.

If someone has the oppo-rtunity could they please see if this player offers a source direct where you can output 480P for standard content and 1080P for blu ray without having to manually change the resolution??? I would appreciate it.

That would be a useful feature for those customers who prefer the sharpness offered by Reon over the more soft picture offered by anchor bay.

The manual is online and available to all now on their site. So you're looking for 480i raw over HDMI like the 980 does or 480p? I don't recall seeing anything that would allow different settings for BD vs SD DVD in terms of resolution, but I didn't specifically look for it either.

source direct wouldn't be different setting for bluray/dvd... it would be the player outputting the native resolution of the encoded video via HDMI. Blurays would typically be 1080P (with few exceptions) DVDs would be 480i

That's right, source direct would output SD DVD's at 480i... damn! I guess, the only way to utilize the deinterlacing of the ABT 2010 and still use my Reon is manually change the resolution to 480P when watching SD content.

Unfortunately, what you are seeking cannot be done.

A manuall resolution change is required but the OPPO can make resolution
changes on the fly via the remote.

Well that's good, I am sure I can plug the command into my Harmony One pretty easily.
