I was having menu problems with a couple of Blu-Ray discs and contacted the Oppo customer service. They said that there was a firmware update that came out December 22 ( http://oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-83/bdp-83-firmware-48-1218B.aspx ) that should fix the problem. For some reason the newest firmware doesn't come up automatically on the Oppo even though I have an ethernet cable hooked up to it. Anyways I notice that there now a subtitle shift option available with the new firmware. If you are watching a foreign film with and have a 2:35 lens on your projector, you have move the subtitles out of the black bars (where they are many times) and into the image so that you can even see them. Once in a while, with foreign films, the subtitles are far too low in the black bars so that there are problems watching a 16:9 movie as well, so this feature would help there too.

That firmware is still considered beta, so it won't be offered to people who have only used official release firmware up to this point. Because now that you've installed a beta firmware you will be notified of other beta versions in the future.

Thanks for the heads up, it drives me nuts when the subtitles are down there and I can't see them, very cool feature.

I noticed this in Inglorious Basterds, half the subtitles are on the black bar at the bottom, bad for people with masking systems or 2.35 setup. I didn't look if there was an option to move them up, although I imagine most players have that.

On another note, the movie wouldn't even play without updating the firmware on my Panasonic, so don't feel too bad.

I watched Inglorious Basterds last week and thought all the subtitles were in the picture for me on my Oppo... if there were some in the black they weren't missed as I watched the picture zoomed in to 2.35 on my 2.35 screen and they would have been project oned my wall and I didn't notice them. Which languages ended up down there?

It was english subtitles. I remember thinking they messed up as well, because someone would say "Merci" and instead of saying "Thank you," the subtitle would say "Merci." This happened at least 5 or 6 times in the movie, perhaps it was intentional.

Edit: You know, now you have me thinking. I watched Pride and Glory on Video on Demand a night or two after... Maybe it was that. In fact I think it was, because IB had yellow subtitles if I am not mistaken, and P&G had white, and I remember them being white on the black bar. Makes sense... Still sucks for people with 2.35 screens though.

I'm sure Tarantino was being a dork with those subtitles.

It was intentional. I joked, "that's the problem with the French; they don't have a work for merci."

So many scenes in that movie were hilarious just because they made no sense whatsoever. When the camera zoomed in the whipping cream for the strudel for about five good seconds... Funny stuff.
