I was rather hopeful for a new FW around the 2 year anniversary of the 203 launch.
It’s a long time to wait for “release day” feature promises to work correctly, ie still getting black crush on HDR to SDR conversions. I can’t see it arriving before Christmas now, even as a beta.
The other concern with Dolby Vision “bandwidth” misunderstandings between Oppo and Dolby meaning 24hz plays back as 60hz with motion issues. Plus Dolby Vision locking out Oppo tone mapping / target luminance settings.
I have two ways round this now though, which other projector owners might find useful.
1. Rip the UHD and extract the Atmos sound. RIP the BR to a MKV, and tsMuxer to add the Atmos sound to the BR rip. This gives great BR Video quality (709), no black crush, immersive sound, no 60hz conversion...but it’s quite time consuming.
2. Rip the UHD to mkv, and playback over network. The Dolby Vision is not invoked when playing over the network to a 1080P display, it shows as HDR - thus Oppo can tone map.
Check out the pics showing Dolby Vision 60hz...yet plays as 24hz when playing the rip over the network.
