Official OPPO UDP-203 Owner's Thread

I watched it in SDR 709. I had my Sony's IRIS OFF for the first half then switched to Auto. No issues with black level either way.

Official OPPO UDP-203 Owner's Thread

I know it has wonky authoring which Oppo/Mediatek were able to work around in previous models, so it's like they forgot what they learned in the 203.

The Anthem works fine with the 83. Oppo has...

Official Lumagen RadianceMini 3D thread.

There might be a setup option but I can't remember. To check I would go into the setup menus and look around or check the user manual which you could download.

I got the same story from Sony - my prism has "failed" because my filter was too dusty.

20-30K hours is 7-10 years @ 8 hrs per day. How is that possible on such a new design?

Have you tried PNG? According to wmcclain's FAQ the 203 doesn't support it but the 103 does.

edit: OK someone else confirmed PNG is a go.

That's right. HDR would require a hardware upgrade, but then DV should only be a firmware matter for any manufacturer.

That just means your preamp's ADC is digitizing the analog input at 96k. To get >48k via digital you need to play a file or disc that is recorded at 96k or higher. Most DVDs and BDs are 48k.
