I'm reading mix results on the OPPO UDP-203 thread. I think what people are talking about, specifically, as being problematic is playing 1080p MKV rips that contain a Dolby TrueHD codec. But I'm assuming they're doing that somehow DIRECTLY from the OPPO, right? DLNA or similar?
I have similar MKVs containing TrueHD codecs, but I'd be looking to play them via the Plex app on Shield...
Initially both the Shield and Oppo would not play nice. I would Change the source to the Shield, and the display would freeze for about 20 seconds, then a "Live TV" app error would occur.
When I adjusted the Harmony Remote to include the Oppo in my "Watch TV" activity, the Oppo would not change input to HDMI In , and of course the 20 second pause, an app error.
I did swap the cables but that did not fix the problem.
I don't know what I did this time around, but everything works fine. I added the Oppo back to the "Watch TV" activity, and now the player changes its input to HDMI In to view the Shield, and vise/versa.
I've played a few UHD Discs along with some BD Rips on my NAS through the Oppo and have not encountered any Lip Sync Issues. I did in the past when I made an adjustment to the Oppo's Color gamut to 4:2:0, so I set it back to 4:2:2.
Now the player is back to 4:2:0 and plays fine. I also changed the Shield to this setting. I honestly do not know what changed and I'm using a cable I swapped back and forth the first time around. I knew I was dealing with a Beta Firmware so I left it at that.
I played various rips, specifically ones that contained Dolby True HD, considering I had issues with those on the Shield in the Past via Plex (I think VC-1 encodes were an issue earlier on).
Thus far, both devices in this configuration have been rock solid.
