    OPPO BDP-93/BDP-95 Blu-ray Firmware Update

    Oppo Digital has just released an official firmware update for the BDP-93 and BDP-95 Blu-ray players.

    Release notes, from the update page:

    This version is designed for the OPPO BDP-93 and BDP-95 Blu-ray Disc players. Comparing to the previous Official release version BDP9x-74-0908, the major changes are:


    1. Resolved a playback issue with several Blu-ray movies recently released by HBO Studios. Known titles include "Parade's End" and "Behind the Candelabra". Customers have reported that once the disc is loaded and the Main Menu shows, either choosing the PLAY option or selecting a scene will cause the player to lock up with nothing on the TV screen and zeroes displayed on the front panel of the player. This issue has been resolved.
    2. Resolved a loading issue with several TV episodes in the Film Fresh application. Customers have reported that those episode would fail to load and cause the player to lock-up. Samples included "Super Natural". This issue has been resolved.
    3. Improved support for the "Episode Resume" feature found on "Game of Thrones: Season 1 (BD, 2012)". It is similar to the "Disc Unbound" feature observed on new FOX releases, which allows the audience to select the episode located on another disc, and once the correct disc is loaded, the player will directly jump to the pre-selected episode and start to play.
    4. Resolved a playback issue with some MKV files. Customers have reported that if they keep pressing the FWD button to increase the fast forward speed to 3x and beyond, the current playback would automatically stop. This issue has been resolved.
    5. Added an "OFF" option to the OSD Mode setting, which hides all of the on-screen information unless the DISPLAY button is pressed. This can be set in "Setup Menu"->"Video Setup" -> "Display Options" -> "OSD Mode".
    6. Expanded the Subtitle Shift option from "-5 ~ +5" to "-10 ~ +10", which allows finer control of the subtitle position on the display screen.
    7. 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.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I used my Oppo over the weekend and didn't see a firmware notices.

    Check to see if it is still connected. Mine lost the internet/home network for whatever reason. After re-connect, upgrade on my 93 went no problemo.

    JR,You asked this somewhere else, but here's your answer.

    To view your firmware version:

    Setup Menu
    --Device Setup
    ----Arrow over to Firmware and hit ENTER
    You will receive more information than you need.

    Thanks, but I did watch my version number to make sure it changed. What I meant to ask was how to check to see if it lost iso capability. Tracy's answer to try and see is probably the best way. The news release above does not mention a loss of a feature.

    JR,

    What are you using ISO files for? Generally ISO files are installation programs. I have a HTPC so ISO is not an issue. However, I donít remember the last time I used my HTPC. It does look good in the rack for a boat anchor.
    I can remember at least three firmware updates since 12/21/2010. My BDP-93 is three years old, I guess Oppo is ready for me to buy a replacement.

    The ISO support allowed you to watch disc images from your network, without having to use a DVD writing program to make the physical DVD. It doesn't set up the file structure, and copy protection, if it is in ISO or IMG format.

    Tracy,

    Sometimes you canít backup to an earlier firmware version. Iíve seen this stated occasionally on hardware sites. If it fails you're probably left with an inoperable piece of hardware, which requires it to be sent back to the factory.

    Thanks for the information on ISO. What are use using to build an ISO file?

    JR,

    If I buy a new OPPO it will be the BDP-103D, but Iím in no hurry.

    The only time I have made them is with self-produced material. I used iMovie and iDVD on my Mac.

    I am no expert, but I have heard that Handbrake will make them. It used to be a free program, may still be. I used it to scale a promotional video that I made, down to a size that would work with my website. That was a good while ago, and I don't remember specifics.
