I still don't understand why the effects of a company's poor programming (firmware) have to be passed on the consumer as a burden. After two discs to being recognized by the 203 (have not even tried...

Thanks to all that have replied.

This whole process does not make logical sense to me.

1) If Oppo has tested this title in their labs and see no issues, either tell me or replace my disc

I did get the 203 to be pretty stable as far as the playback settings, but the fact it will not recognize a commercial disc that I have played before with no issues was not acceptable. It's hard...

So would the 4:2:2 12-bit setting be better than the 4:2:2 10-bit setting? I thought it was just a waste of 2 bits. :-)
