Default Re: OPPO BDP-83 Bluray player

I received mine about a week ago. Picture is wonderful, sound quality fantastic!! It is definitely NOT REGION FREE...and cannot be made region free (hint to previous Oppo owners). It looks good, has an ethernet port to connect it to the internet (must purchase a "game adapter" in order to do this)...and two USB ports which can be used to plug in flash drives, or external hard drives which (if formated with FAT rather than NTSF) can be used to read movies, photos and music stored on the hard drive.
All-in-all an excellent machine and even though a tad slower loading than the PS3, is still fast and does a terrific job on regular DVDs and a superb job on SACDs and DVD-Audios as well.

So with an external HDD connected, what kind of movie files can it play?

I have not actually connected an externall HDD as of yet...I have dozens of 500,750 and 1 TB drives (mixed) and all are formatted with NTSF so they won't work...but I have connected a flash drive with both DIVX and MOV files and they played...however, MP4 files will not.
sorry I can't be more helpful.

I'm curious. Can one take a USB hard drive, plug it into the BDP-83 and have himself a music server? If so, how is navigation accomplished? Is FLAC a supported format? Lastly, can 96/24 files downloaded from HDTracks.com be played through this setup?

It will play files from a USB hard drive (it should be powered). I don't remember the specifics of navigation since this is not something that personally interests me. It does not currently decode flac files but this has been requested and may be done in the future but there is no guarantee of that.

If I remember correctly, some 96/24 downloaded files will work but not all. I think it depends on the specific format. Check the forum at AVS Forums where this has been discussed at some length.
