Any help is appreciated.
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.
Hope these pics work.

So here's a thing:

For a few months I've been streaming 16 bit FLAC files through the Oppo 203 from my Dell laptop running Oshare Server recommended by Oppo. It's incredibly sluggish most of the time, with artwork slow to load, music files slow to start and roughly 2-3 second gaps between every single track.

A few nights ago I decided randomly to steam from the same source directly through my Denon 4200 receiver. Imagine my surprise when playback was instant and there are no gaps between tracks. It's genuinely gapless! There's no artwork displayed and navigation is crude but playback is perfect.

How come the Oppo struggles so much with something the Denon can evidently do in its sleep?

IS anybody having issues with the new release UHD Disc Black Hawk Down? First movie I have had an issue with, something tells me it the disc authoring and not the player but I thought I would find out if anybody else was having issues. Somebody indicated on Ralphs UHD review there were audio hiccups and that is what I experienced throughout the whole movie on the extended version. I have not watched the theatrical release yet.

The disc authoring is FUBAR. You can try a vigorous disc cleaning and see if it helps, but keep expectations low. Plays very nicely when ripped to HDD though. (full disc rip)

There's no data here to offer informed guesses. Wireless vs wired? Is the path the bits follow identical in both cases up to the end?

I watched the extended cut last night on my Panasonic 900 UHD Blu-ray player without any problems at all, so if it's an authoring issue, it seems like at least this player (first generation Panasonic UHD player from August 2016!) can handle it. I didn't try it on either my Oppo 203 or 205 player. Maybe Oppo needs to address this in a firmware update.

I played the theatrical version with no problems. If after a quick cleaning your disc still acts up, it's probably a defective disc.

Im pretty sure he's using it, not just "updating the firmware" dont get me wrong, thats 100% ok. This just sounded like a craigslist ad with someone saying "brand new, only took out of the box to see if it works" lol

But that forces the player to insert 3:2 pulldown frame repeats when playing back 24fps movies. So instead of smooth motion you get judder.

Oh, I haven't really noticed any judder.... Maybe I'm just not that sensitive to it.. Running UHD 60hz seems to be working 100% better for me than Auto.. I can't explain it but something within this last update is just not right.. I'm waiting for the next update to see if anything changes.. I feel Auto resolution is a tad buggy.. I also hope the next update will bring us a Dolby Vision "Off" setting instead of having to use the forced / reset method. 🤔

IMHO one gets judder either way (judder being a jerky motion from one frame to the next) -- but in 24 the frames are evenly spaced, while with 3:2 pulldown it's cycling slow/fast. Much more annoying especially on smooth camera pans. 24p with low frame interpolation (JVC CMD) the best remedy for judder I have seen without inducing "soap opera effect".

Help needed. I am looking to make my US version Oppo 203 region free for bluray. I know "NOTHING" about doing so and have just begun my research. In looking online, I am finding multiple opinions / options / warnings.

I have seen people saying to download jailbreak software onto a disc and load that on the oppo, then also have found the below link to a website for a modification to make inside the unit.

http://www.bluraychip.dk/product.php?id_product=31


Also, I have read someone warn that once this modification is made, you're opening up your player if it's on a home network for hackers.

Opinions / knowledge / help needed!!

1. The kit from the link above, anyone used this? I have read some reviews on other sites and looks easy enough. Looks like this comes from Europe though, is there one state side I am not finding that is available I am not finding?

2. What's the difference between jailbbreaking a unit and making a unit region free (or is that the same thing)? STOP LAUGHING NOW!!!

3. Hackers having access to my network? If I make the unit region free with this modification kit, does this really open up the door?


Thanks for any and all help!!!

The hardware mods have been used for years and people generally report good results.

Jailbreak firmware: I would not trust it. I have not heard of network security issues, but I would trust the hardware mods before someone's hacked firmware.

Avoid the hacked firmware, its not worth the trouble and doesn't actually work that well.
There are several kits you can use. The most popular can be installed externally or internally and functions the same either way. I use and recommend the ones sold by AVSDigital on eBay.
Note that while it says its for the earlier players, it works on all of them and is 1/2 the cost of most others. For external use you just plug it into the serial and USB ports and use a button press code to change regions. Your player then behaves as though its a "region B" player, "region A" or whatever. DVD region free is automatic and requires no user input.

"Jailbreaking" a player involves installing hacked firmware in the player. I would not recommend this approach.

Region locking exists for Blu-ray discs and for SD-DVD discs. Disc licensing prohibited OPPO from selling the players already set up for Region Free operation. The new UHD (4K) discs are not Region locked, so no problem for those, as is, on your OPPO 203.

If your only concern is making the player Region Free for SD-DVD discs, you can do that quite easily by running a specially constructed disc, once, in the player which alters a setting. This is called the SuperDisc, and if you know enough to "burn" a disc yourself on your computer you can do it for free. This is quite safe. It was necessary for OPPO to support this because some parts of the world require that a buyer be able to make the player Region Free for SD-DVD discs.

If you want Region Free for Blu-ray, however, you will need to install a 3rd part hardware modification. These come both in a form that installs inside the chassis of the player and in a form that plugs into a USB socket on the back of the player. These cost money. They've been around for quite some time from different 3rd party providers, and should be pretty problem free. It was common for dealers in Europe, for example, to include one of these when selling a player at retail. The bluraychip product you spotted is a commonly used example.

For more info on this see Bill's FAQ page for Region Free:

Even though it doesn't say Oppo-UDP-203 it has worked fine for me on the several (3) Blu-rays that are not Region A. Had it for almost 2 years.

I'll third the recommendation for this product, it's very reasonably priced and works perfectly.

I had not seen the AVSDigital device that others mentioned, but simply wanted to say that I have several of the bluraychip.dk widgets, and they also work just fine. You do need to remove the cover (which is trivial) to install it, but you simply plug the device into a specific, unused port on the inside of the player. FWIW, it then makes the player permanently region free for DVDs, but you have to "toggle" the setting for BluRays, using your OPPO remote, and there is a power/cycle then required to complete that region change. I've never had any problem with mine, and to my knowledge it is not interacting with any aspect of the networking hardware, so I see no way that it is lowering the security posture of the OPPO.

I will also mention that none of the hardware region-free mods have ever been affected by or affected any firmware updates to any Oppo player in which they are installed. So anyone using one of these won't have to worry about that.

I'm also using the one from bluraychip.dk.... I'll 2nd that.. Highly recommend. 👍🏻

I had never heard of AVS Digital but I do own a couple of JVB Digital all regions hardware mods. The first was for my old 103 and the most recent was for my 203. Both have performed flawlessly.

Wireless via same network. Can't tell you anything about bit paths but I assume the path is identical. The receiver is simply on a higher shelf. Network method and distance the same.

If I turn one of my access points a quarter turn or raise or lower it 6 inches the wireless network goes to ****.

Being on a higher shelf may be all it took.

Would someone be kind enough to explain to me in simple terms why the 203 cannot play 32-bit WAV files if it has a 32-bit DAC (AKM 4458 8ch 32bit DAC)?

thanks

Also, I've disabled SMB on the computer, but the SMB share still shows up on the Oppo!?

thanks

Mine shows up as the IP address too. I don't know how to change that, but it doesn't bother me.

Here's a crazy thing.

We were using the OPPO to play movies over NFS. But the file names did not match the movie! Instead of Pride & Prejudice we got Frost the Snowman (now there's a shock! ;-0 ). We ended up laughing hysterically while playing movie roulette/name that film.

Over and over again. I think my OPPO may have lost its mine.
