^Extremely unlikely that the current Oppo players will ever decode Atmos, Auro, et al.
As mentioned, there is licensing to deal with, plus more than likely that type of change would involve Mediatek updating the capabilities of their current chips,
and that is very rare for a chip maker to do for such a big feature. They will usually just make a brand new chip with those features,
and then harware engineers have to build new hardware to accommodate the features.
On top of that, IF the capabilities were added to the current players, Oppo's own engineers would have to write new software on top of that.
Lots of lots time and money that is not cost effective for any of the parties involved.

I do hope that they will have some new player(s) next year that incorporate the 3D audio codecs for analog outputs.
I'm curious to see if a player like that might be released before a 4k disc player, or will they be one in the same.
Either way it's probably going to be well into next year or longer before something like that hits the streets.

I suspect Oppo will want more certainty that the formats will be successful before dealing with them. It is not certain that Auro and/or Atmos will be successful in the home. Only time will tell.
