Long term player storage question

So, when Oppo announced they were going out of production, I scored an Oppo 203, which I have had stored in the box for about a year. (I have occasionally hooked it up to keep the firmware current.) My question is whether the experts here think it's OK to leave it in safe, dry climate controlled storage for what will probably be years, until my Oppo 103D gives up the ghost, or whether it would be a better practice for me to rotate the two players, say once a year. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Yes, no problem. No need to take it out for firmware updates, just save the firmware on disc.

Im 100% sure my 2016 model doesnt have HDR10+ update and never will, the hardware just isnt there for it, sad to say.
Just put the disc back in and verify it shows HDR10 in the same input section.

This was noted as an inconsistency in the Oppo when HDR10+ first came out.

HDR10+ encoded video placed within the .MKV or M2TS (and maybe .MP4) container will trigger the HDR10+ meta-data flag and therefore does appear within the OPPO's 'extended info' area.

I have both players but have done the reverse, my 103 is in the box. Do you have a 4K TV ? Streaming 4K pales in comparison to watching a UHD 4K blu ray on the 203.

HDMI audio out issues

Still not getting audio out of the audio only cable from the Oppo to my Yamaha receiver.

One thing I did do that worked just fine is I ran the main HDMI out from the Oppo direct to my AVR and it worked flawlessly - dolby atmos audio, etc. One of my main reasons for bypassing the 3070 at the start last year was because the Yamaha couldn't process Dolby Vision yet. It's since been updated to support it and it is appropriately showing Dolby Vision when discs are played through the single connection to the AVR.

Since I'm having no luck with the previous setup, is there anything I need to change in the Oppo or AVR config for this to work the best way possible with just the single HDMI connection to the AVR? I see stuff for speaker configs, etc I have covered in the AVR already, anything I should look at?
Hi, did this ever get resolved? I have pretty much the same issue. The Oppo is connected to the OLEDC7 on the main connection, and the HDMI audio out is connected to the Denon X2000 (not capable of 4K HDR passthrough). I have tried checking the connections, changing the cable, resetting the Oppo, trying another input on the Denon, pretty much everything I could think of. Unfortunately, unlike cbolton, I dont have the option of a single HDMI out setup (due to the age of my AV receiver). My current hack is to use the optical audio out from the LGC7 to the Denon, so I lose the HD audio options.

Same problem here. If I connect my Oppo directly via HDMI 2.x to my Sony Beamer and the audio output from the Oppo via HDMI 1.4 to my Trinnov, I‘ve got either no video signal or no audio.
Is there a HDCP problem?

If for some reason bob's suggestion does not unlock zoom for you (via 203 zoom or TV zoom)..... You can use this 2nd trick for full screen zoom.. Set the Aspect Ratio to 21:9.. Start your movie and you will be able to full screen zoom (Dolby Vision titles as well) using the 203's zoom button without losing any sides to the picture... There is only one catch and that's a "slight" vertical stretch. 🙂

*Also, when trying Bob's suggestion make sure the 203 is not set to "Source Direct" .

My 203 hangs when playing UHD/DV Blu Ray disc's. The picture freezes and cuts out part of the movie then starts playing, probably will hang more than once.
Panisionic using the same disc will not hang, only problem is it's not DV compatible only UHD.
Latest firmware, Blue Jean HDMI cable's 6 feet or longer, reset after firmware installed.
SDR blue ray disc's play fine.
These are new disc's from amazon, I will also clean them and have blown air into the BD slot in the Oppo.
Any ideas.

Problems at the higher bitrate of UHD strongly suggests a cable issue. Have you tried reseating the connectors at both ends? Are you connected directly to the display or going through a receiver?

Do you have another cable to try, and does it have the magic logo:

Chaps, I'm hoping that someone here might be able to help me with this issue that I'm having with my 203: for a few weeks now, the app (android) is unable to make the player play music over my network.

My setup: all devices are plugged into the router via Ethernet, and my music sits on a shared drive on my home computer, which is always on.

So usually I just switch on the Oppo and amp, and then use the app to play music. But now this doesn't always work.

Whenever this happens, I then have to switch on the TV and use the remote to navigate to the network share and then play music. Usually the login screen for the share appears, even though there is no login/password on that share, and I've ticked the 'remember this logon' option.

I've done a reset and then restored my settings, but this didn't help.

Any pointers would be much appreciated, thanks

Streaming Question

I have a Blu-ray rip on my NAS and I am playing it back through the 203. The video is find but I am not getting 5.1 sound, just 48k 2.0. Are there settings on the 203 to set this? I selected one of the .mts files from the 203 file navigator to play the video.

This is the first time I have tried to do this so I am flying blind a bit here. Any assistance would be appreciated.

First things first...

How many audio tracks/streams does the m2ts file contain (you can check this using a tool called MediaInfo). Have you selected the correct (ie: multi-channel) audio track?

I downloaded MediaInfo and here is the information for the file I am selecting. It seems like I am getting the first audio stream.

Ha, Ha, I thought that I was the only one that bought new stuff just to keep it in the shrink warp!

Although in my case I was waiting for the 4K TV before I unboxed the 203, now that the 65C8 OLED is on the wall the Oppo is in play.

As has been mentioned storing the player in a dry climate controlled spot should be fine, however I would recommend a month or two of usage to ensure it is all good before the warranty expires (2 years IIRC?).

Thanks to you and all the other folks for the good feedback and suggestions. I will keep my Oppo 203 (and it's much older brother the 103) safe and warm while using the middle brother 103D. Love those Oppos....

I keep both, my 103D and 203 hooked up...... The 203 is for all of my hi-res HDR needs and the 103D is for its insanely detailed 1080P video thanks to its Darbee processing.. 😀🍿🍿🍿

Iv recently paired an Oppo 203 with my Samaung KS9800 tv that can almost hit the peak brightness of 1600 or so nits. My question is what should I set the HDR Target Luminance to... should it be to 1600 nits or less? Im not sure what exactly is the purpose of this setting. Tia!

Your set is fully HDR capable and therefore there is no need to use (nor should you attempt to use) target luminance. Those settings are for non-HDR sets and PJs.

Doesnt seem to be a way to turn it off or anything, just set it to the lowest setting and forget it then? Or leave it at default 300 maybe...
And good to know, I was thinking it might be doing some kind of tone mapping for my set and not blow out whites like it does sometimes on most Samsung sets with crazy high nits.

If you have HDR set to ON or AUTO the setting is ignored. It is only for when doing HDR->SDR conversion which your display does not need.

And good to know, I was thinking it might be doing some kind of tone mapping for my set and not blow out whites like it does sometimes on most Samsung sets with crazy high nits.
If you have HDR set to ON or AUTO the setting is ignored. It is only for when doing HDR->SDR conversion which your display does not need.

Thank you guys!
Now that I have the settings taken care of, I wanna ask about troubleshooting two issues since I added the Oppo to the chain. All devices are connected to a Denon x4500h and all are certified hdmi cables from BJC except one that came with the Oppo.

1. I am noticing a quick hickup in motion evey so often since I started using the Oppo. Its like the video is trying to catch for a quick second. Happens on 4K discs and files. Any motion settings in the player that can remedy this?
2. Usually after starting a movie, I'll see a flickering horizontal line across the screen. It seems to happen only once after starting a movie.

Again, the hdmi cable from oppo to denon is the certified cable that came with the player and rest are bjc certified cables in the chain. So not sure why im having these issues that mimic handshake issues. Any help is appreciated.

Do you have another cable to try, and does it have the magic logo:

I used the same Bluejean cables for the Oppo and Panisonic players.
I do use a Vertex or direct connect, same issue.
The issue is in the Oppo 203.

My setup: all devices are plugged into the router via Ethernet, and my music sits on a shared drive on my home computer, which is always on.

So usually I just switch on the Oppo and amp, and then use the app to play music. But now this doesn't always work.

Whenever this happens, I then have to switch on the TV and use the remote to navigate to the network share and then play music. Usually the login screen for the share appears, even though there is no login/password on that share, and I've ticked the 'remember this logon' option.

I've done a reset and then restored my settings, but this didn't help.

Any pointers would be much appreciated, thanks

Panisionic using the same disc will not hang, only problem is it's not DV compatible only UHD.
Latest firmware, Blue Jean HDMI cable's 6 feet or longer, reset after firmware installed.
SDR blue ray disc's play fine.
These are new disc's from amazon, I will also clean them and have blown air into the BD slot in the Oppo.
Any ideas.

I also own a C8 and to avoid this problem try to configure the HDMI resolution in 'Custom UHD 24HZ', everything else in 'Auto'.

Let me know what you get.

What are the Extended Info screens showing on the Oppo (Long press on Display Button and scroll down each page)?

Upload screen shots of the display info when the player is doing this - it is likely you have a setting whereby a frame rate conversion is causing a problem.

This may be the same issue I have. It's like a single frame being skipped. For me, it's very infrequent, like once or twice in a two hour movie, if it happens at all, and it's never repeatable. This makes it very hard to diagnose. I have tried changing various settings in the Oppo and in the TV related to frame rates, motion smoothing, and such, but nothing has worked for me.

It's also not specific to the 203. I experienced this issue on the 93 and the 103D, connected to two different displays (an older Samsung LCD and now an LG 65UH8500). A few years back there was a guy who posted multiple times about the same issue in the BDP-93 thread, but nobody seemed to take him seriously because nobody else seemed to see it. As I recall, he was able to resolve it by setting the Oppo to Source Direct, but I haven't tried this. I don't really like Source Direct, and the problem isn't serious enough for me to go to great lengths to alleviate it.

I have a suspicion that this glitch may be more widespread, but it's one of those things that many people just don't notice. Sort of like DLP rainbows, which I am very sensitive to, but many can't see at all. I see it occasionally on other sources, like streaming, OTA TV, and even in commercial movie theaters. I have just learned to live with it.
