Y'all with that 'other' player might want to consider buying an Oppo remote, if they are still available.
You are asked to provide an Oppo serial number in order to buy a replacement remote. Supplies are limited.

Has anyone had issues since the last FW update?


When I out in a UHD disc I now get the message that I need to connect to a display that supports HDR and when I click on OK and play the disc the picture is completely over saturated.


Running Oppo -> Marantz 7010 -> HD Fury Vertex -> JVC X5000, the only change I've made is updating the Oppo FW.


Edit : Ok this doesn't seem to be an Oppo issue I've taken the Vertex (and therefore the AVR) out of the loop and the issue is resolved.

This is all pretty consistent with a dodgy cable in the chain.

I'm guessing it would have to be the short one then as it's running fine trough the Ruipro straight to the PJ, I'll swap out the short one tomorrow and see if that helps.

I would check what picture mode the TV is in when it gets the HDR from the DV disc. It appears to me that the TV might not have switched to an HDR picture mode which could explain the color issue.

Well...I get the indicator in the top corner saying HDR is on (when the 203 is outputting HDR, not in strip-metadata or SDR mode), but it's certainly possible that the TV is doing something wrong. I need to get some other DV discs to try, as I don't have that many. Maybe it's just this disc set that looks so weird. I don't think it's really the 203, since noone else seems to have the same issue, but it certainly is hard to explain.

Thanks for the response.

No, but there is a slight bit of overlap. Depending on what code you are using, the OPPO remote can activate some functions on the CXU you didn’t expect.

Check out the reviews of the first three Jack Ryan films on the UK avforums website - you'll find that they also state that the colour grading on them is 'monochromatic' - effectively your using three really bad examples to test your viewing experience.

HDMI does it all and is the only way to get lossless audio including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Has anyone seen their 203 go into slow stutter mode on the HDMI input?


We run the signal out of a 2014-era Samsung cable-card enabled cable TV box into the HDMI input of the 203, then out to an LG 65C8 OLED. (This is because the 203 upscales to 4K better than the TV).


At least once a day, the 203 goes into slow stutter mode on this input. It will freeze for a couple of seconds, then resume for a couple of second, then freeze for a couple of seconds.... over and over. Power-cycling the 203 fixes it.


Anyone else ever see this, or have any insight into it?

Its not unheard of, and cable boxes are notorious for such issues. Make sure you have the 203 set for the appropriate type input image, such as 1080/SDR.

I have this issue with an AppleTV 4k on the HDMI input. I have to force an HDMI handshake to get it back to normal.

This seems to be a symptom unique to the 203,and it's buffering and processing for upconverting/deinterlacing HDMI input. I've never seen it on my 103 which I've used with 720p/1080i HDTV input via HDMI for six years. Could be due to the extra work needed to upconvert to 4K (2160p) which is at the heart of this.

When I feed the same 720p/1080i HDTV input (i.e. my DVR output) to the 203, and repeatedly use the "skip forward 30-seconds" or "skip backward 12-seconds" control to navigate past commercials, or put the DVR into "fast-foward" mode to play past a TV program segment I'm not interested in, what gets delivered to the Oppo in rapid sequence are frames which are "discontinuous" as far as the onscreen image. This is very different from normal 30i or 60p frame delivery where each consecutive frame really is just a tiny bit different from the previous frame, making it "easy" to interpolate between video image data on consecutive frames. When this smooth progression of frames is radically disturbed by "skipping" through discontinuous image data on consecutive frames I believe the Oppo's buffering and processing logic is very much bothered (seemingly moreso than the same logic on the 103).

Eventually, what appears on the display screen is this "stuttering" artifact as you describe it, kind of like "pulsing" of "every so often" images rather than the true rapid-fire sequence of discontinuous (or even continuous, when normal speed playback on the DVR is supposedly restored) frames we know are coming from the source device feeding fast-forward or frame-skip to the Oppo. In fact, even after stopping the fast-forward or commercial-skip breaks source stream, ordinary regular motion program data is also presented in the "pulsing" defective way.

Similar to the other methods mentioned above as the "solution" to get things back to normal, my own technique is to:

(a) STOP the source DVR momentarily to stop feeding program data to the Oppo,
(b) use the INPUT button on the 203 to navigate from "HDMI IN" to "BLU-RAY PLAYER" and press ENTER, so as to force the "buffer flushing" of whatever damaged frame information is currently being absorbed and processed from the external HDMI input,
(c) wait a few seconds with the Oppo's home screen main menu displayed, for things to stabilize on the 203 NOT processing external input
(d) again use the INPUT button on the 203 to navigate back to "HDMI IN" and press ENTER, to effect a totally empty brand new buffering/processing handling for the HDMI input
(e) resume PLAY on the source DVR, and everything is once again normal with no "stutter"

I feed both Roku Ultra and DVR through my StarTech 4-to-1 HDMI switch feeding the single HDMI input of the 203, but haven't seen the "stutter" symptom from the Roku. But then I pretty much never am doing the kind of "commercial skip" or "fast-forward" I regularly do when viewing my DVR. However I suspect that if I did actually control the Roku the way I controlled the DVR that I probably would see the same symptom, since based on my theory its really kind of an "eventual overrun" of the buffering and inter-frame interpolation done by the Oppo as pertains to its upconvert/deinterlace of external input to 2160p output when "overwhelmed and confused" due to a rapid-fire arrival of completely discontinuous image frames from the source device.

I have the stutter on the Apple TV 4k (every time I try it). I never have a problem with stutter on the Roku Ultra. I have to go back to the Roku every time as the Apple TV will not work consistently on the HDMI input.

At least once a day, the 203 goes into slow stutter mode on this input. It will freeze for a couple of seconds, then resume for a couple of second, then freeze for a couple of seconds.... over and over. Power-cycling the 203 fixes it.


Anyone else ever see this, or have any insight into it?
Really? Better than to an LG C8?.... I'd like to see that

Yep.


This is EXTREMELY annoying. It happens over and over with my Apple tv. I usually have to turn my Oppo off and back on which takes forever.

Same here, I usually just restart the ATV4K and it fixes it.

Why use the HDMI Input for the Apple TV 4K - it is already 4K (and DV which the Oppo cannot pass)? I just go straight into my AVR. I thought this was only good for non-4K sources that you want to upscale?

Panasonic TX-65GZ950B, Oppo UDP-203, Musical Fidelity M3i, Marantz SR7013, 5.1.2 - Dali Oberon 5, Oberon Vokal, Oberon 1, Alteco C-1, BK P12-300SB-PR, Apple TV 4K, Sky Q (UHD/Atmos), Sky Fiber Max (80/20).

My receiver isn't 4k capable...I go directly from the Oppo to my projector.

Yes, that is indeed the case.


It's subtle. I subjectively felt that the picture upscaled through the 203 looked more "real", had more "depth". But it was subtle enough that I thought it might just be placebo effect / confirmation bias.


When I got things setup so that both devices were getting the lower resolution HDMI signal at the same time (making it easy to quickly A-B between the two) I spotted that the subjective impression of "better and more satisfying" had an underlying reality. For example, watching the news at 720p, with the LG C8 upscaling there were suggestions of lines across Neil Cavuto's forehead. Coming out of the 203, you could very clearly see the lines.


Little things like that spread across the whole picture makes for a subjective difference.

Hi

Does anyone know if Oppp are aware of a bug with NFS network browsing. If you browse folder that the Oppo doesn't have permissions for the device hangs with a busy symbol.
Reboot fixes it.


Cheers
Chris


P.s.
I remember Bill asking if anyone spotted the mistake on the home screen images. Looking back at some old holiday photos I've finally spotted it, well the lake anyway.
