They SHOULD be able to, but of course it's always possible to get a bad cable. Another common problem is if the plugs have shifted in the sockets. HDMI is only friction fit, and it just takes a...

Then what was your comment about re-digitizing referring to? MY point was that going through a pre-amp, preamp-processor, or AVR does not mean you have to re-digitize the Analog output of the OPPO...

The combo of the new firmware and your prior settings may have pushed your HDMI cables beyond what they were capable of handling. For example, sending YCbCr 4:4:4 format, which is higher bandwidth...

2K DI means that the post processing on the film was done digitally at 2K -- a 2K Digital Intermediate. Thus the 4K transfer to UHD disc is an "up-scale" from that.

I'm not sure about that yet. I don't have enough info. I'm also not sure whether the 205 will be more forgiving in terms of things like impedance requirement if you connect it directly to a power...

This is hard to predict because it depends on the resonances that may be present where you position the OPPO. In a quiet room you will most likely hear the high speed spin of the disc. Once the...

The entire Analog audio output stage of the 205 is different from the 203. Better power, better DACs, better components. The multi-channel Analog outs of the 205 should sound better than those on...

That's a reasonable assessment. Putting up the money for a 205 pretty much necessitates that you've got more than one feature of the 205 which you find attractive. Probably more than two.
