For folks with players made for the other Regions, you'll need to be patient a little longer until the 60-0625 firmware is configured and released on the usual web sites for your players.

If you are doing the install over Internet it will all happen automagically. If you need a first install of intermediate firmware you will get that. Then when you power up again you’ll be offered the latest firmware.

If you are doing the install via USB stick, see the instructions for Download and Installation on OPPO’s Support page for the player. But not to worry. The player will not accept the wrong firmware.

You are done when your Main firmware version number ends 60-0625.

Just so I have it correct. If you acquire a player with old firmware and try to install a new firmware by USB it will not permit it if you are in need of one of the prior firmwares? I guess the safest route is to connect it to the internet and let it do the auto upgrades.
One last question. Is you have settings saved on a USB stick, can these be used on any 203 that you have or does each player save a special individual file? I recall you saying they did not apply to both 203 and 205.

Dv/mp4

On the new firmware, I’m seeing the forced DV working on MP4 files on USB hard drive. Not on my MKVs though.

With AUTO the player will send Bitstream for the ones the receiving device can handle, and will automatically switch to decoding and sending LPCM for the Bitstreams it can NOT handle. The LPCM will be multi-channel if the receiving device can handle that.

With BITSTREAM, on the other hand, any case where the receiving device can NOT handle a newfangled format results in the "compatibility" Bitstream being sent instead -- lossy DD 5.1 or DTS 5.1.

--Bob
Bob, thank you for the information, I will be changing the setting to BITSTREAM.

See the instructions on OPPO's Support page for the firmware -- linked above.

If you need to install an intermediate firmware first, the player will not recognize/install the newest firmware. (See the instructions for the link to the intermediate firmware version you have to install first.) If you were already on the prior Official firmware, or the recent Public Beta firmware, you won't have any such issue.

-------------------

Yes you can re-use Settings saved from one 203 to set up another 203. Same for 205 to 205.

I'm sort of afraid if I ask LG about this, that'll give them a reason to lock it out. They've already made a bunch of other silly decisions like dropping 3D, reason why I bought the TV I did when it was still available.

[...]

They said that when I asked them about it before their troubles started, and that's also ridiculous. It comes set default to NTSC-only anyways, so people who don't understand that stuff likely wouldn't mess with it. That PAL/NTSC button on the remote probably wasn't a good idea (and sadly it doesn't work on the 203, I've tried!) But aren't most people who buy Oppos smart enough to understand all that stuff and not be confused by it? Besides, setting the 203 to 50hz makes it ONLY put out that signal, so if my TV didn't support it then that would cause it to show no picture and make someone think the player was bricked. At least with a "Multi-standard" setting it'll only lose the picture on PAL discs if that's the case, and come back when playing NTSC.

I'd gladly pay someone at Oppo to make a custom firmware for me that fixes this problem. Otherwise, is there any sort of box I can get that will just tell the player that the display supports 50hz and to output it when appropriate?
You're not the only one with this issue. Probably about 1/3 of my DVDs are region 2, many of which have not had a BD or UHD release. I requested this feature from OPPO over a year ago, and again a few weeks ago to see if any progress had been made. Both times, they told me they'd consider it, but it didn't sound high on their list of things to fix/change. Since my 103D *did* support the PAL/NTSC/Multisystem feature, I got a lot of use out of it with my LG TV. Now, I've resigned myself to changing the output to 4K/50 for PAL DVD, which of course means I usually forget to change it back, and then NTSC material looks weird until I remember what happened. It seems like a simple thing to have retained, but I guess Bob's explanation where people thought things were bricked is the reason they dropped it, at least from US firmware.

Definitely bummed. If they don't fix it, then after official support ceases for new firmware, I might have to look into less-official sources.

The idea someone posted about using an HD-Fury to fix it sounds interesting. I'm already looking at that because for some reason, my LG doesn't broadcast the fact it can do HDR, even when set properly, so I have to force my source devices to do HDR rather than them recognizing it from the TV. The HD-Fury people said I could fix that with one of their devices. Being able to also set a bit for PAL compatibility would only be icing on the cake.

I've also never had this problem, tried again this morning and same result, I also noticed that the new firmware is not yet available for download on their website so can't do it via USB either. Shouldn't be long now.

Could be a while until the all the bugs are fixed. Why is everyone in a Hurry for the Public Version?, If you want DV on your OPPO just get the beta version and see for yourself. I found one issue with the new DV on our OPPo's and I report it and followed it through. The Problem mainly effected Australian 9400E. We all dont want a botched up public DV that has plenty of errors?

I have an Australian 9400E. What is the problem? Haven't installed the latest public firmware version, so might need to hold off...

For those with LG E6 OLEDs, the new FW is becoming available for download over the net. I have just downloaded and installed FW 05.30.30 here in Australia and I've seen reports on the E6 thread that it's also available in the US.

Haven't had a chance to test whether it solves the DV floating black issue yet, that's my activity for tonight.

Please help me with your advise. I am about to purchase a european version of Oppo UDP 203 player, because I already purchased a Sony KD-65 AF8 Oled TV and Sony had just released the Dolby Vision firmware on June 2018 and I updated the TV capabilities to Dolby Vision. Please advise me on the following:
a) if Oppo UDP 203 is also capable to handle Dolby Vision to my TV and
b) if Oppo UDP 203 can read on its USB inputs, one (or more) 5Tb INTENSO HDD 3,5" USB 3.0 MemoryCenter Black, NTFS partition, Windows and Mac compatible, provided with original external power supply of 12V 2A

Welcome to AVSForum.

They answer to both questions is "yes".

(a) There are two known varieties of Dolby Vision protocol in use now and the OPPO supports both of them.

(b) I don't recall reports about that hard drive, but USB mass storage devices are generally supported.

Downloaded new Oppo firmware and watched the fourth Jurassic Park UHD movie (Jurassic World) with the Oppo converting from UHD to DV. Also set for TV-led as I connect to a LG E7P. I was impressed. Will try some others. I'd be interested with other's experiences with this new option using LG OLEDs.

Seems that a combination of the Oppo 203 DV conversion coupled with the LG dynamic tone mapping in DV mode is a good match. At least from the reports so far. My set is a 2016 model so I don't have the tone mapping feature. 3D yes, TM no.

LG's new firmware installed in my E6 this morning.

It does, indeed, appear to have fixed LG's problem with Dolby Vision "Floating Blacks" when playing content via HDMI.

Can anyone point me to literature explaining the magic that DV is performing to convert non-DV (HDR10 and SDR Blu-ray) content to DV? I've been fooling around with it and understanding what is happening would be nice

It does, indeed, appear to have fixed LG's problem with Dolby Vision "Floating Blacks" when playing content via HDMI.

I have never observed the "floating blacks" issue on my LG B6 with the Oppo udp-203 although I have only begun viewing UHD discs on it since late may. I'm surprised to hear that people are just now getting the 5.30.30 firmware update since my own tv has been displaying that firmware for quite sometime. The difference may be the fact that my tv is logged onto the LG webboost via my home network whenever it is powered up. It updates firmware automatically to whatever is the latest. I also just recently updated the Oppo to the 60-0625 firmware with good results (I don't see any differences from the 601B firmware). One question that I have is: should I wish to use the usb dac on the 203, would I have to seperately update the usb dac firmware or will that have been accomplished by the new main firmware?

The 203 does not have a USB DAC Input. That is a feature of the 205.

Ah, silly me! I suppose I will revisit this question when I receive my new 205! By the way, I got a reply from Oppo "service" on the saturday afternoon when I had forwarded my query to that email address rather than the customer service address I had been using. They assured me of no changes in the upcoming availability and no status information on my place in line. Thanks for the helpful suggestion.
