It's rather extreme to dismiss people with excellent projectors that aren't bright enough to fully do HDR.

Yep, I really don't have much interest in HDR (though my Z9D does a pretty good job of it). I do want the strip metadata to work well for my projector, though.

I was one of the first to purchase my UDP-203 long before I got a 4K TV. I enjoy the many benefits it offers. (And I had a BDP-93 before that)

Anyone using the Oppo as a simple pre-pro? My domestic situation is changing and I'd like to avoid having to purchase another AVR/pre-pro for occasional use. IIRC, people were doing that with the 103.

It has multi-channel analog out with volume control and one HDMI input. Can it do ARC for audio from the TV?

Off topic:

Same situation with most of the product on Accessories4Less.

It can get frustrating shopping so close to the US. I recently looked at buying a bike direct online. Shipping to anywhere in the continental US: $30. Shipping to Toronto: $149. We're closer to the factory than many states of the US...

And then there's the exchange rate.

Hello and thank you to everyone for their help getting my player setup so far. I am the happy owner of this player but could use some advice on setup with my LG 75UH8500 tv. I was reading in this thread to set the Output Resolution to Custom and Custom Resolution to UHD Auto, however I was wondering about the setting for Color Space and Color Depth. My display is capable of YCbCr 4:4:4 and it is an 8 bit panel dithered to 10 bits, so should I set my Color Space to YCbCr 4:4:4 and Color Depth to 10 bits, or should I go less than that in Color Space and Color Depth to Auto? Should they be set differently for HDR and SDR?

I ordered mine directly from Oppo in December the day they were released. (First person in Saskatchewan to have one!!) At the time shipping was $104.74 US for a total cost of $653.74 US. The exchange rate was very poor at the time (1.347237 run through Visa) for a cost of $880.73 Cdn. Separately, I had to pay $82.09 Cdn for GST and brokerage fees. This brought my total cost to $962.82 Cdn.

If I had waited until they were available in Canada (late January or February?) and ordered from Solutions A/V in Ontario I would have saved in the order of $150. The exchange rate is a somewaht better now, but ordering within Canada would be much less costly.

I will be viewing 1080P BD and very limited UHD BD through a 1080P projector. From what I read there is some issue HDR->SDR black levels, but oh well, have the 1080P BD available
I have had ZERO issues with mine. I play through an Onkyo with HDMI for 4K to a Samsung with a 7.2.4 sound. Incredible! I know some will be here tweaking this and that. I am on BitStream and Auto for everything else and I couldn't be happier.

Picture stutter now confirmed on a second 203. I’m guessing it is a firmware issue. HDMI In apparently not defective on the other unit. Will make log and send to Oppo for analysis and hopefully a better solution than turning it off and back on or running exclusively stereo sources. Betweeen picture stutter and audio drops, HDMI In is useless for me. I’m hooking the Uverse receiver directly to the TV.

Much of our advice on video settings has been toward getting a reliable connection over HDMI that supports all the media formats and plays well with everyone's receiver and display combinations. The most common combination we recommend (as shown in the FAQ) is UHD Auto, 4:2:2, and Color Depth Auto. But other settings are needed for specific circumstances.

We look for settings that apply both HDR and SDR so you don't need to switch.

If various settings are equally reliable for you and you are looking for image improvements, there is no strict rule for the best settings; it depends on the rest of the gear. You might find an authority in a thread for your display who has recommendations.

If you want to test the chroma upsampling options (4:2:2 vs 4:4:4, etc) yourself, Spears & Munsil have an online article on doing that with their test disc. It requires a lot of squinting at fine video patterns and the patience to be scientific.

I hear ya buddy. I have my Directv going into the oppo's hdmi in and I get picture studder and audio issues too. It seems turning the channel helps to put things back to normal or even turning my DIRECTV Genie off and back on helps make everything normal too. I'm glad there's a workaround but it's a pain for sure.

That is weird. They must be thinking about the disk drive noise? I noticed that when I put in a UHD the other day that it was kind of loud but it got a lot quieter when it started to play. This could also be because rent3dmovies places small stickers on the disk which I'm sure makes them a little unbalanced.

It undermines the quality of a review when it becomes apparent that the reviewer didn't do his homework. He didn't even bother to check out the HDR to SDR conversion.

Bill - thank you. I will try the settings you recommend and also try some experimenting with 4:2:2 versus 4:4:4. The picture does look quite good with the settings you recommend. It is very hard for me to tell a difference between 4:2:2 and 4:4:4, as well as setting Color Depth to 10bit versus auto. Thanks again!

Did you not get a nice OPPO tote bag with your player?

ETA: I should add that the hole in the disc tray is *NOT* intended for use as a carrying handle.

That's the cup holder.

funny... how you bring this up now.
I'm positive that 95% of the complaints recorded in this thread deal with one simple fact. People are not hitting STOP before ejection.
I can not count the number of disks I have seen with a slice thru them from the laser, because Stop was not employed as intended.

It's exactly the same as removing a vinyl phonographe from a player without lifting the arm first.

And then you have the 0's and 1's that are caught in limbo because they haven't been played yet. Those are collected and resold to the chinese. That is why they are beating us with our own intellectual property. Just like WWII selling scrap iron to the 'other' asians.

Stop then eject. It's not just a good idea, it's the law.

This is one of those reviews readers have to "take with a grain of salt". I use my Oppo tote bag as a pillow case, sweet sweet home theater dreams.... Now where's the next update, I'm experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
