I would really like to get a BDP-83 when it is available, but not working with my Z11 is a show stopper for me.
For those interested in what didn't work, I couldn't get any of the higher definition video to work (720p up) over HDMI, nor could I get high resolution audio (SACD or DVD-A) to work over HDMI (probably related to the video problem). Note that both Oppo and Yamaha were notified of this problem, but I don't know if anything was ever done to fix it.
Who knows ask Oppo they are very good about responding to email
Also how do you like the Z11, I always loved Yamaha
