Best bet is to email the disc details to Oppo
Many thanks. Oppo responded promptly, just had to erase BD-Video data and it worked.

Over on AVS the moderators have shut down speculation on the ISO issue.
As to FW notes, take extreme care. Making ISO avalaible was not announced in FW notes...it was an Easter Egg. On this basis, removing the functionality may not be announced either.
One of the Beta testers on AVS (and these people seem to know more than most) has mentioned that Oppo's silence on the subject may indicate they are still fighting this; here's hoping.

We have our video doorbell into the HT room and a phone extension just outside in the bar. I had the same worries as our house is very long and the front door is all the way at the other end and the HT is in a kind of basement as well making it another floor also. The video panel is a nice black with blue led so matches the light switches and also the colours of the room which is black with blue walls. All looks okay and does the job. My only concern is someone who doesn't ring the doorbell and have thought about that at night when we are down there watching something.
I know what you mean. I've felt a bit uneasy using my room cranked up when no body else is home. Have thought a few times I must see if there is a way to rig our video door bell into the HT somehow... And put a phone extention in there too.

I'm not at home so can't test this at the moment, but I was wondering does the BDP-93 output audio to both the HDMI and the optical output simultaneously?
I searched this thread and also looked through the manual but couldn't find any mention.

So, according to the chatter on AVSForums (most of which has now been deleted by moderators), it looks like ISO support will definitely be removed from future firmwares for the 93/95 range. Seeing as though we can't talk about it over there, why not talk about it here?
Who's planning not to update? You'll lose potential fixes and improvements, and there might be problems with future discs, but you'll keep ISO support. The way I see it, a firmware without ISO support would have to offer something else pretty damn compelling to make me want to switch.
It also makes me long for the old days of hacked Oppo firmwares. I remember a Russian guy put out some custom firmwares for my old Oppo 971 DVD player, which worked just fine. If someone (Russian or otherwise) decided to do a custom 93 firmware that added new features and kept ISO support, I'd forget that I'm a married man and kiss him. And given that the 93 firmware is broken up into a main version, a loader version and a sub version, I wonder if it's possible to update bits of the firmware while keeping the bulk of it intact.
Or is it simply not that big a deal? The 93 is still a great player. I was more than happy with it before it had ISO support, so why should it make that much of a difference?

Hey fellas. Anyone have Boardwalk Empire??? Received mine 2day, i think theres a problem with the oppo in playin this disc. Firmware possibly needed. When u go tot the episode list menu the disc locks & picture freezes. You can however play all episodes from the menu, i did that & at the end of the episodes picture froze. You have to keep pressin the power button to get the disc out of the machine.

I can say the 83 does both, so I would be surprised if the 93 didn;t
All audio outputs are active simultaneously: HDMI, optical and analogue.

Well, the 'NO ISO' (or just 'ISNO!') firmware has just been posted by Oppo, with updates for compatibility with Universal titles and a few other discs.
According to beta tester reports, BDMV folder and AVCHD folder support still works.

Release date: January 23, 2012.
Category: Latest Public Beta Release
Main Version: BDP9x-64-0119B
Loader Version: CN0900
Sub Version: MCU93-09-0218 (BDP-93), MCU95-08-0218 (BDP-95)
1. Resolved the loading failure issue observed on several recently-released Blu-ray movies, mainly Universal Europe (EU) releases. Their US releases have no known issue. Sample titles include "Jurassic Park Trilogy (BD Box Set, 2011)", "Kong Fu Panda 2 (BD, 2011)", "Fast Five (BD, 2011)", and "National Lampoon's Animal House (BD, 1978 version)" etc. With the previous firmware, disc playback will automatically stop once you go to the Main Menu and select to PLAY. This firmware properly loads and plays all the above Blu-ray titles.
2. Improved general disc compatibility based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples including "Mr. Poppers Penguins (BD, 2012)", "Dragons Gift of the Night Fury (BD, 2012)", "Human Planet (BD, BBC Documentary)" and "Nine Inch Nails, Live - Beside You In Time (BD)".
3. Per the request from the studios, the ISO file playback function has been removed in this firmware version. The previous firmware had the ability to play ISO files, but it was an undocumented function and was never officially announced or supported. Future firmware version will no longer support ISO playback.
Neuromancer's Note: Multi-directory AVCHD is still working in this firmware, but that too may be removed in the future. The AVCHD specifications only require root directory support, not multi-directory support.
Not to name names or anything, but my new favorite studio is owned by Rupert Murdoch,
