It depends on the type of subtitles. Text-based subtitles in media files can be manipulated, but graphical-based subtitles (common on BD and UHD) cannot, apart from shifting them up and down.

Closed Caption controls are another case which no one in the history of the player has ever mentioned in this thread.

I'd ignored the new firmware with DV conversion because with my Apple TV 4K I did not get good results initially. I'm just playing with this feature and it has the potential to really affect my collecting strategy (I'll often go for DV digital version on iTunes or Vudu over an HDR disc).

My initial takes (near conclusions) after some testing and perusing of discussion in this thread:
1. YMMV will vary because if lets say your Dolby Vision video setting group on your TV are perfectly calibrated and your SDR setting is not then you could get a great benefit just using the calibrated DV input. The reverse is actually much more likely as DV calibration is a new thing even for the experts.
2. Same logic versus HDR with this. In a sense you're also testing how good your calibration settings are for HDR, SDR, DV, maybe even daytime versus night time viewing.


I'm no calibrator, but have been very avid with my TV about tracking down these best possible settings to the point of even getting some kind of DV calibration file loaded to my TV. My viewing preference has been for DV digital over HDR disc hands down.

I'm quite familiar with Dolby Vision Star Trek and ST Into Darkness on iTunes, but just noticed when perusing my collection in the last week that they are not Atmos, so I got them on HDR disc. Initially very unhappy with the video versus my Apple TV 4K, I quickly discovered that somehow my Oppo video preset 1 had been set back to 0 so my initial bad reaction to the discs was partially do to not having the best settings (DV mode overrides these settings in Oppo). That led me to looking at firmware notes and updating to the latest firmware with DV conversion.

My initial impressions are very, very good. It seems subtle to the untrained eye, but I must say that my first glance I'm very hopeful:
1. The two HDR Star trek discs converted to DV by the Oppo just seemed to erase my concerns about HDR disc vs DV. Everything seemed familiar and very much like the digital version; so much so that I suspect Oppo may be doing the same process that is done for these digital Dolby Vision releases for/by Apple/Vudu.
2. I liked the DV so much I also bought the DV/Atmos version of Star Trek Beyond. Interestingly I used the Beyond HDR disc a lot to tune my Oppo's video presets and some general HDR setting tuning on my TV. I very much liked the DV version of Beyond on iTunes much like the other titles.
3. SDR bluray I like as well and change is very subtle. Its like the DV conversion is tuning like it does for HDR vs Dolby Vision on disc. Again this is very dependent on just how well setup your inputs are and I suspect my DV input of being a touch better than Technicolor HDR on my LG Oled.

I've got an extensive collection of digital Vudu/iTunes and quite a few HDR doubles on disc so believe me I'm going to be going bonkers on this Oppo DV conversion feature because it totally affects my whole collection strategy. I'm also realizing that it may impact my bucket list desire for an HTPC in my system which won't be able to do the DV conversion done by the Oppo. If the Oppo is as strong at HDR to DV conversion as I suspect (similar to digital Vudu version), then this means HTPC playback will be unacceptable for me as the Oppo taking it to DV will always win hands down. I've got a lot of testing to do before I buy any more movies so I should have some more firm conclusions I'll comeback and post. I may also have to fiddle with forcing DV discs to HDR and dig back into my Technicolor HDR settings for tuning or perhaps fresh suggestions on AVSForum.

Really comparing this correctly is a herculean task and it may be why there has not been a lot of technical discussion. I'm pretty sure its unknown what Vudu/iTunes/Dolby do to make DV digital copies versus the disc. Its also unknown what Oppo is doing. My very, very initial hypothesis is that they are the same and if that were the case, then the Oppo Dolby Vision conversion would be a rather amazing feature and not just some questionable gimic.

I guess I didn't think about it, but yeah I guess the roku ultra is doing the upconverting.. Hmm, any suggestions? Obviously i need it simple for the family, which is why roku ultra.

Should I go to the lumagen for this then? I thought the oppo203 was in a way a shortcut.
If you configure the Roku to output 4K for everything, a Lumagen isn't going to do anything the Oppo isn't already doing for you. If the Roku can be configured to output everything at the native resolution (so 1080P content is output at 1080P, 4K content is output at 4K, and so on), then you could take advantage of the video processing in either the Oppo or some other video processor.
So then is the hdmi in 1 on the oppo just a bypass if I set the roku ultra a 4k.?if I'm playing a 1080p video on plex thru the ultra is the roku up scaling to 4k, and the oppo is doing nothing?
So basically oppo is doing nothing.?

Basically yes, the Roku has already upscaled to 4K.

But the video settings in the Oppo could make a difference in the output. Source Direct should always output the same as received. But if you set a custom color space or bit depth, the Oppo might in some cases convert 4:4:4 input to 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 output for example, or change the bit-depth.

Thanks galonzo!

FYI, it was actually Oppo support that claimed to me that a UHD/4k Disc would only play downconverted in 1080p/60 Hz and not in any other resolution, regardless of the Custom Settings for Video Output on the UDP. Your observation and test proves what I told them, that this is not correct and if one forces the output resolution to SDR and 720p/60 Hz, that is what one gets. After all, the UDP and even BDP are perfectly capable of down converting a 1080p/60 Hz signal to 720p/60 Hz and even converting it to 1080p/24 Hz if that is what one sets the Custom Output to do, so even if there were some restriction on what DV downconversion could produce, seems that the Oppo would be more than capable of taking that 1080p/60 Hz signal and producing these other output resolutions if set to do so.

That still does not solve my issue of why Mission Impossible:Fallout UHD/4K did not play in my setup whereas other DV UHD/4K titles like Star Wars and Atomic Blonde have played just fine, and is what I reported to Oppo that generated the above response and issue.
My panel is an older Pioneer plasma that still works great but only accepts 1080p/24 Hz or 720p/60 Hz or 1080i/60 Hz inputs, not 1080p/60 Hz, but the UDP-203 should be able I would think to handshake with the display and figure out what resolution it accepts and then output it in "Auto" on Video Settings (that is what "Auto" is for, after all) and certainly if I force one of those outputs, like 720p/60 Hz from the UDP-203, it should output that to the display even for DV UHD/4K material, I would think, but that disc isn't working for me and I think it is some type of compatibility issue for newer titles, but have not gotten Oppo yet to admit that the issue is not on my end; your "proof" should help that cause a great deal.

HDR, HDR10, HDR10+ Dolby Vision ?

Using a Oppo 203 with currant Beta firmware, certified cables.

I own a Sony 5000ES 4k projector which does not show a Dolby Vision picture.
It can project a HDR, HDR10 image. So my question is, what is the difference between:

HDR ?

HDR10 ?

HDR10+ ?

Dolby Vision ?

Can you clearly see a difference?

Presently I'm getting HDR at 444 12 from a 4K Blu-Ray

There will be loads of posts on this, and other forums, about the different types of HDR. I guess you could start here: I don't get the point of HDR

I've tested it again repeatedly and found that if I switch back to Wireless (from Ethernet) after the reset I am given the Scan, Manual, and WPS options, rather than the "Your previous wireless settings have been found. Do you want to use them or start with new settings?" pop-up message. If I go to Scan, I do see my hidden network SSID listed as if it had been remembered, but it shows up four times in the list, once with a dot next to it, the other three without. If I select it, I still have to enter my password. This also occurred with the previous UDP20X-60-0625 firmware.

Again, I do NOT get the "Your previous wireless settings have been found. Do you want to use them or start with new settings?" pop-up message when I switch back to wireless after performing a reset. Instead I get the "Scan, Manual, and WPS” options. If I go to “Manual” I have to type in my SSID and password again. If I go to “Scan” then it does show my hidden SSID listed 4 times (among the other SSIDs in the area), with one of them having a dot next to it. If I select any one of the four listings of my hidden SSID, I still have to manually enter the password.

My Wifi credentials are deleted whether “Erase Settings” or “Erase Accounts and Settings” is selected. The only thing that is retained is the SSID showing in the “Scan” list (rather than being hidden) and for some reason it shows up four times instead of one. Unless I’m missing something my Wifi password is not retained when a reset is performed.

This is the exactly as I described it to Oppo.
OK, OPPO -- and your findings -- are correct and I was wrong. It's been a long time since I tested this extensively. It *USED* to be that the settings saved to USB stick did not record your Wifi password, just as server passwords are not saved. However, at that time Reset did not delete the last used Wifi password, so all was good.

The way things are now is as OPPO described it. The Reset deletes the Wifi password. HOWEVER, settings saved to USB stick now DO record the Wifi password. So if you do a save to USB, Reset, and restore from USB, your Wifi is back working again, which is what confused me into thinking it was still as it had been.

I'm not sure when this changed.

Good catch!

Watched First Man last night. I paused the movie a couple of times which also made the Universal screensaver show I couldn’t resume play from the Universal screen and had to stop the movie to play again. I forget whether there’s a way to get rid of the Universal screensaver without having to stop the movie to resume play.

Yep. I use Pop-Up Menu button to dismiss the infamous Universal Screen Saver. (Evidently it is coded as a type of Pop-Up Menu, which would explain why this button works to get rid of it.)

I'm actually surprised you ran into this on a newer, Universal disc. Recent reports have stated they apparently re-wrote their silly screen saver to allow more intuitive ways out of it -- such as hitting Play button.

Congratulations though! Getting stuck in the Universal Screen Saver is a recognized Rite of Passage for Home Theater owners!

The intention behind HDR10+ and Dolby Vision is to improve on HDR10.

The intention behind HDR10 is to (with a correctly calibrated display) allow the display to use use static reference metadata encapsulated with the source media to accurately display the source media.

HDR10+ and Dolby Vision are different systems developed to take this a step further by incorporating dynamic metadata with the source media to enable the display to control how the material is displayed throughout the movie.

Try hitting the center cursor button. I believe it’s the enter button on the Oppo remote. It’s the ok button on my Harmony One. I’m pretty sure that’s what I had to do when watching my Hitchcock box set. Kind of annoying until I figured that out.

It would have killed Universal to let the PLAY button escape their screensaver.

Back at the beginning of time we had this in the BDP-83 FAQ: How do I resume from the screensaver on Universal Studio discs?

Quote:
Try any arrow key, Enter or the Popup Menu. It's not intuitive, but that's how these discs are programmed.
The screensaver may have mutated since then, but those were the keys that used to work. I always use an arrow key.

Thanks Bob! The reason I caught it is because I was following your advice and purposely avoiding restoring the settings from USB following resets, due to the issues I've been having with significantly delayed audio (which isn't helpful AVR, is significantly different than the BDP-103 in an otherwise identical setup, and requires negative A/V sync settings on the UDP-203 to correct) and the brief flashes of video snow during HDMI handshakes (which isn't cable related).

Do you get Dolby Atmos audio with this?

Hey guys,

would a few of you here be kind enough to test this file on your systems and report back if you get correct Dolby Atmos audio with it, please?

https://thedigitaltheater.com/2019/0...uehd-atmos-7-1

On my setup (Oppo UDP-203 with current beta firmware, connected via HDMI1 to my Denon AVC-X8500H) I only get Multichannel 7.1.
The Oppo displays "MLP 7.1" when pressing "info".
It's set to "Auto" audio-wise. When I set it to "Bitstream" I get no audio at all.
The issue only occurs with this file, everything else (including, discs, files and disc-rips via SMB, and so on) works and always worked correctly.

There are, however, people in some facebook home theater groups reporting they're getting correct Atmos audio on their Oppo-Denon or Oppo-Marantz combos.

I already tried converting the file to m2ts, but then I'm getting no audio at all.
Programs like TsMuXeR are failing to import the audio stream and instead displaying an error message.
So something does not seem quite right with the audio track one way or the other.

Reports?
Thoughts?
Thanks!

I don’t have a DV capable display (Panasonic DX902), but am interested if anyone has tried setting HDR to DV on the Oppo for sdr HD Blu-Ray playback ?

Of course this gets then converted to HDR10, so effectively converts sdr to hdr. It doesn’t immediately look off to me. Any impressions ?

@SkyCyberguy , I'm getting Atmos here; using dual-HDMI output on the 203 (audio to my Denon x4200w)

Edit: I first downloaded the DD+ version, which plays as Atmos fine, however the lossless version is Dolby MAT (and says so in the extended media info display for the 203), which does not output Atmos from the 203 (I'm showing Multi-channel in as well).

I get the full Atmos playback here, lighting up all my speakers (9.1.4) over the same model Denon AVR-X8500H you are using. I streamed it from my PC via the UDP-203.

FTR, I downloaded the lossless Nature's Fury MKV file from the Demo World web site, where I have gotten all of my Atmos demos in the past; IDK whether this aspect will have any bearing on the validity of my experience for your purposes.

Ich hoffe, daß ich Dir damit behilflich sein konnte und schicke dazu einen schönen Gruß aus Atlanta an unsere deutschsprachigen A/V-Mitliebhaber!

I have downloaded and will check for certain later - but is this not the standard issue of Dolby MAT files will only playback if it is the firt to be played following full boot up? If there is a DD track too - did you try selecting that and then going back to the MAT track.

I'll confirm later.....but it may be much later, so though I would mention it.

@wl1 , It was the only track I tried at the time, and it is the only track for the file, so I can also try playing something else first, then the MAT file...

I just went back and did a little more experimentation. I find that I can only play that MKV demo file once. After the first playback, there is no more audio unless I power down the UDP-203 first. It also seems to affect playback of other Atmos and DTS:X demo files (but not Auro-3D for some reason). I also tried playing Nature's Fury on a loop and wound up losing video (!) over my AVR-X8500H with the second iteration. I had to power off the AVR to get video back from any source on the AVR.

I wonder whether the mavens here know where the incompatibility lies with this file.

HDR ?

HDR10 ?

HDR10+ ?

Dolby Vision ?

Can you clearly see a difference?

Presently I'm getting HDR at 444 12 from a 4K Blu-Ray
Technically, you're not getting any of them because a projector isn't capable of the brightness necessary to actually display HDR.

However, an HDR signal does look better on your projector than non-HDR, just in a different way.

HDR10 is the only one of those your projector accepts. Same for any projector today.

I hadn’t seen that clip, so thanks for posting - very impressive demo material.

The file works fine for me ( running latest EU beta) when it’s the first played file. Playing across my network, via SMB (not DLNA).

Repeat showings - no problem.

When I selected another file, playing back DTS-HD MA, then re-tried the Natures Fury, NO audio.

Re-selecting Dolby Digital audio on another file, re-trying Nature’s Fury - audio was fine again. No need to reboot. Hope this helped...

Converting SDR to DV does not look that good.

The file plays fine for me as well, however the OP ( @SkyCyberguy ) stated that he isn't getting Atmos at the AVR (which is also the case for me).

I re-tested, this time playing the DD+ w/ Atmos file first, and I have no problem switching between a DTS-HD MA file and back to the lossless version (MAT; the file always plays fine, but only as Mult-In on the AVR, i.e. PCM).

I'm running the latest NA beta.
