The 203's firmware is the latest (UDP20X-65-0131) and the HDMI IN spec is set to 1080p. What should I set the HDMI IN spec to if I want the OPPO to upscale everything below 2160p.

One additional issue is that the Roku 3 started distorting the correct aspect ratio probably after I upgraded the firmware. Is that a problem that I should check with OPPO support about? The Roku Ultra is working fine, including aspect ratios. It is directly connected to our 4k AVR. The TV is HDR and DV capable (Visio PQ).
The HDMI Input spec simply dumbs down that input so older source devices don’t get confused with newer HDMI complications. To get lower res input upscaled to 4K output, set the video output resolution of the player as normal. For example Custom > UHD Auto.

For your Aspect Ratio problem, check that you have the OPPO set to TV Aspect Ratio 16:9 Wide / Auto. If that doesn’t fix it, check with OPPO, but odds are the Roku is putting out something strange, like an off by one resolution.

Thanks for the help. I think that it's a good bet that the Roku 3 is putting out an offset resolution. The best solution for me is to get the Roku Ultra working through HDMI IN and dump the Roku 3.

I checked the OPPO settings and they were already set to TV Aspect Ratio 16:9 Wide / Auto. But it seems that Roku has fixed the Roku 3 because it's working the way it used to.

I'll be adding the Roku Ultra to HDMI IN later and will keep your suggestions in mind. Thanks very much.

It def looks like it's not in DV though, as switching between picture settings it's what I normally see normal mode. I did switch out the cable for a new one, that didn't help either. Switched it on every input of my receiver and all displayed it there. Haven't tried hooking it up directly to the TV yet, need a longer HDMI cable to do that. It can't be the disc right (something messed up on the HDMI handshake there)? I'm about ready to return it and try again.

I just leave it that way myself. I see little reason to switch back and forth. Something happened with the recent update that doesn’t allow “Auto” to work properly.

I have a question specific to this player! Has anyone had any issues with "The Grinch" 4K disc loading? I have an Oppo 203 and a cheap Sanyo BP-807 UHD player and I have gone through two copies of this disc with both failing to load or taking at least 10 attempts to do so. In the past a simple exchange always fixed the problem. I am thinking that Universal must have made a bad lot of discs, but there have been a few titles that required a FW upgrade to play on the 203. I exchanged the disc from the same purchasing store. The Oppo states "Unknown Disc", while the Sanyo states "Disc not Supported." Just curious if anyone else was having these issues?

Check you have the latest firmware installed in the OPPO. In Setup > Device Setup > Firmware Information, the Main firmware version number should end "65-0131".

If you have not already done a Reset Factory Defaults in the player after installing that firmware, do that now, and then turn the player off and on again. You can speed this up by saving your settings to a USB stick for reload after the Reset and power cycle. See Setup > Device Settings > Settings Management.

If these steps do not cure the problem, and given you've already tried a replacement, odds are you have a disc from a "bad batch". I've not seen reports on-line about this title, but if a store gets a delivery from a bad batch, it is pretty common a replacement disc will also be from that batch.

Your options in that case are to get in touch with the Studio (customer service can usually be found on line) about an exchange from them and/or to get in touch with OPPO Tech Support, which can check if they already have history on this disc. If they don't, they may ask you to send them the disc so they can find out what's bad about it, and help you get a known working disc copy.

Since it's not the other 4K discs, is it the player? I did update it to the newest firmware. Attached a pic, hopefully you guys can help.
I had this same problem with Aquaman. The only way I could get Dolby Vision to work again was to do a full factory reset. Once the handshake was messed up, none of my other DV discs would work, they were all "messed up" like what you saw, ie, TV was not flipping into DV mode, but Oppo was sending DV.

I never had this problem until the latest ( Feb 19 ) update on the 203. Since applying this update, its happened about 3 times. Each time, I have to completely reset the 203.

Changing the DV settings in the Oppo did not change or fix anything.

Originally TV-led was the standard and the only version available. Player-led was added for Sony, which could not be bothered to make DV-compliant displays. Later TVs appeared that accepted both types.

Only Dolby knows the difference. They provide the code and nothing can be done with DV except by their permission.

It defaults to DV if your tv supports it. You can force HDr10 though if you wanted to. HDR10+ is already available on the 203 with the latest firmware.

Use make mkv and do a disc backup to a folder. ISO does not work

Not trying to be a jerk but we covered this in numerous other posts after the one you quoted and it was meandering into the realm of the topic for another thread but yes, you are absolutely right, ISOs will not work with the Oppo 203.

If these steps do not cure the problem, and given you've already tried a replacement, odds are you have a disc from a "bad batch". I've not seen reports on-line about this title, but if a store gets a delivery from a bad batch, it is pretty common a replacement disc will also be from that batch.

Your options in that case are to get in touch with the Studio (customer service can usually be found on line) about an exchange from them and/or to get in touch with OPPO Tech Support, which can check if they already have history on this disc. If they don't, they may ask you to send them the disc so they can find out what's bad about it, and help you get a known working disc copy.

Thank you for the advise and I will try these! I have the latest FW but did not do a factory reset. I did take my disc into Best Buy today just to see if it would load in any of their players. Sure enough it loaded fine in their Panasonic DP-UB820 hooked up to a 75 Samsung. I had the employee load it twice to make sure. Both times it started up without a hitch. Now I am thinking Oppo may need a FW upgrade to play this disc. Why others are not having an issue I don't know. This is the 2nd disc I have tried.

I exchanged the disc from the same purchasing store. The Oppo states "Unknown Disc", while the Sanyo states "Disc not Supported." Just curious if anyone else was having these issues?


I have an Australian 203 and had the same issue with it not loading. I hadn’t updated to the new version but once I did it played perfectly, upgrade firmware and your good to go plus do a factory reset

I just watched The Grinch yesterday with my son and the disc played fine. I have the latest Firmware on my oppo203 and I have a LG E6 with the latest firmware as well.

Yes, absolutely..... There are some bugs with the latest update for sure.. I would imagine Oppo is working on a fix.. I hope all goes well an update gets released soon (as opposed to three months) as I have a new HDR TV.. Besides that, WoW, Still an Amazing picture from this player.. Amazing..... 🙂

Speaking of bugs. I've been watching Game of Thrones on Blu-ray discs the last couple weeks. Twice now I have left one of the discs in the player when shutting it down since I still had an episode left to watch on it. When I powered up the next night, playback starts and all of a sudden the player kicks into DV mode. Happened 2 times with 2 different discs. If I do an eject and then start the disc fresh, it does not go into DV mode. This has never happened before, but to be fair, up to this point I have never left a disc in the player when shutting down. This is with the latest firmware and I did a factory reset afterward. Anyone else have this happen?


As a side note, while the picture looks sharper in DV, it's unwatchable to me because it adds the dreaded soap opera effect.

Your display will have a completely different set of parameters specific to the signal it is receiving, ie. I suspect it is your display that needs setting up.

Play actual DV content, ensure your display is in that DV mode, and then Disable the Motion parameters causing the SOE in your display.

These settings will stick for DV content for that input.

The same is true for HDR being displayed - a different set of parameters per input per signal received.
