You will have to try by trial and error - but the consensus here has been to start the display first, then AVR, and wait - then the Oppo last, as it boots up very quickly.

1. Sony 4K projector VPL-VW5000
2. Yamaha Receiver RX-A2070
3. Oppo UDP-203

I would trial manually - then use Harmony to automate for consistency.

Best of luck....

I'd recommend

Turning OFF all devices capable of MB (including Router)
Turn ON the Router and wait
Turn on the device most likely to be the MB and wait.
Turn on all other devices, including 203.

This would be my approach, from my experiences when I had SMB issues....best of luck.

I have a Win 7 32bit machine that acts as a media server and anytime I have trouble seeing network shares on 2 other Windows machines, a Win 10 as well as another Win 7, rebooting that first Win 7 machine almost always fixes the problem. This is even with my router, an ASUS RT-AC86U, set as the Master Browser. Windows networking is a gobbledygook mess.

Why couldn't such meta data be part of an update to the internal tone mapping?

Oppo 4K Blu-ray Players To Get Surprise New Feature

John ArcherContributor
Consumer Tech

Oppo is on the verge of rolling out a key new update to its highly acclaimed UDP-203 and UDP-205 4K Blu-ray players that will enable them to play a new type of 4K Blu-ray picture format.

While I’m still awaiting formal confirmation of the new feature rollout from Oppo, I now have it on good authority from two separate sources that the brand will be adding support for the HDR10+ HDR format to both of its much-loved 4K Blu-ray decks in the next few weeks. Either by the end of December, or the early part of January.

The HDR10+ format predominantly developed by Samsung delivers a potentially superior picture performance to standard HDR because it carries dynamic metadata: extra scene by scene information designed to help TVs get the maximum impact from each HDR image.

It is seen as an open-platform, royalty-free rival for the long-available Dolby Vision dynamic metadata HDR system. Until recently, however, HDR10+ has not really been an issue for 4K Blu-ray players because a) it was only formally ratified as a format last year, and b) so far no 4K Blu-ray discs have been released that carry it.

That’s about to change, though. It’s now confirmed that the upcoming IMAX Original 4K Blu-rays of Journey To The South Pacific and A Beautiful Planet will carry HDR10+ masters, and there’s a rumor, too, that Bad Times At The El Royale 4K Blu-ray is going to become the first big movie release to be mastered in the format.

Certainly 20th Century Fox, the studio behind El Royale, has previously stated that it intended to launch HDR10+ 4K Blu-rays when the technology was ready.

It’s great news, then, to learn that the Oppo 203 and 205 will soon be able to handle this latest HDR format. The addition of this key new feature also proves that the brand has not given up software development for its popular 4K disc spinners, despite announcing back in April that it was no longer rolling any new models off its 4K Blu-ray production line.

As soon as Oppo provides formal confirmation that the update is coming – ideally with a specific date – I will update this article accordingly.

Good news. Too bad I don't have a display that supports the format. I don't believe LG will ever update my 2017 OLED to support it either. I fear the new TCL 6 series is a lost cause as well.

Here's to still hoping that the tone mapping is under the radar and tagging along within this update.

Exactly, if the LG oleds don't support this format, I don't think it's gonna take off.

I wonder if the upcoming HDR10+ update also enables Oppo 20x to convert picture to Dolby Vision. Like it currently does for HDR10 and even SDR content.

Great news on the forthcoming HDR10+ update.

I am a UK member with a 1080p setup currently, looking to upgrade to 4K in the new year. As i am playing 4K discs at 1080p on EU firmware i am suffering from the dreaded green line on the left. I have contacted Oppo UK but the response time is proving a challenge. Would any UK or European members be kind enough to furnish me with a link to the firmware that patches this issue as its stopping me from playing the 4K discs of have recently invested in?

Many thanks for the help.

But studios have been waiting to put out HDR10+ content, according to the article, so even though your TV may not support it, that has no bearing on what the studios have planned to do.

Odd problem indeed...have you tried the online tech support? There should be no difference between UK and US FW in terms of functionality. I wonder if some in the US are able to easily duplicate this problem...

If the display doesn't support it, and people don't buy it because of that, then it dies on the vine. No matter what the studios do.

The good thing is that both of the advanced HDR formats (DV and HDR+) have HDR 10 as a fallback, so you can still see the movie in HDR.

Hopefully the 203 can perform its magic and convert HDR10+ content to DV, since DV performs the same frame by frame adjustment that HDR10+ is supposed to. So HDR10+ is (to me) not an improvement of what people already have (DV Dynamic adjustment), but an initiative by an industry group to challenge Dolby (Samsung, Panasonic, Fox).

Phillips is said to be joining this and Warner Brothers will produce content. LG, Vizio, Sony are not on the train and may never be.

So it's hopefully something the 20X players can handle, output to capable displays and convert to DV for those that are not. I don't see it as something that benefits the users, just adds another format.

My guess is if you don't have a display that supports HDR10+, then the oppo will default to the static HDR format of the disc and will convert that to dolby vision, if desired, not converting the HDR10+ info to DV.

I might take it the opposite way (but I'm not an OPPO engineer).

HDR10 takes an average setting across all frames and applies it to every frame. This can be suboptimal for scenes that are only low light, or at high light, etc with color...

HDR10+ and DV applies the correct setting for your panel given the upper and lower limits in that particular scene, so you are not pulled to nonexistent highs or lows, giving a better display of the scene's components.


Since HDR10+ has already done you the favor of breaking down each scene and determined the proper settings as expressed in their metadata, it becomes an exercise of translating one set of metadata to another, rather than analyzing the entire stream, coming up with a median setting and applying that.

I imagine that would also cause issues with streaming in that you are getting one frame at a time.

I would think the easiest and fastest thing to do (to avoid those nasty delays) would be to do on the fly translation of the metadata from HDR10+ to DV. Most of the values are probably very similar and can be passed through or modified quickly.

Just my 2 cents.

Hopefully they won't revert back to just an auto setting. IOW, no way to force everything to DV. You will see it as it is on disc. Unless your tv can't support a certain format, which would then revert it to HDR10.

it would be interesting if it could also convert DV to HDR10+... Since all Samsung TV's definitely don't have DV support but at least the newer ones HDR10+ so we could also enjoy DV titles...

Hi guys! I have the same problem as this gentleman but haven't found an answer on the forum or elsewhere. I hope you can help.

I too have Blu-ray discs with no subtitles encoded on them and have attempted to load a "sub.srt" file from USB while playing them but the function only seems accessible on discs already encoded with subtitles. Does anyone know if there's a fix or workaround to get the 203 to load external subs while playing one of these discs?

Many thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Is there any hope they are going to fix the tone mapping that's in it already.. I love new features but I need whats broken so I can use it with my projector. I'm still using my custom curves and holding on to the player to see if they fix it.. If not then its time to move to the Panasonic which i would hate to do..

Anyone’s guess but I suggest you hold on to your Oppo and add a 820 if possible. The Oppo does quite a few things no other player is likely to.
It’s media streaming is priceless. I love UHD folder playback. The 820 can’t even play lossless audio from NAS or USB.
The 820 is no doubt the best player for tone mapping UHD discs and is one of the best with regular blurays but it’s strengths are most noticeable for projector owners. As manufacturers start adding tone mapping to their new projectors(JVC) then having tone mapping will be less a requirement for players.

I have lost the reasoning for the tone mapping bug. Is this just for the projector crowd or does this effect the rest of us lcd/Oled owners also?

Just wanted to say hats off to Oppo for adopting the HDR10+ certification program. They really didn't have to do this and it does cost them $2500/yr, but how many companies would spend money to add features to a product that is no longer being manufactured? For that matter how many companies add features to products they still manufacture? Sad to think that there won't be a 303.

I'm afraid with all the time that has passed that the fix has become "Mission Impossible". There must be some technical problems that the engineers cannot overcome. They just haven't officially come out an admitted defeat. In a few days it will be two years since the 203 was released for sale.
