We now all own orphans. Any fixes are at the good will of OPPO. My suspicion is that when the warranty has expired for the last units sold, the support operation will shut down shortly thereafter. Might pick up one of the Sonys, just in case. I have many SACDs and want to continue to play them.

In the meantime, mine works quite well, with the exception of occasional HDMI connection issues, completely unpredictable. I use a Harmony to start up every time, so the sequence is always the same. (Signal path - OPPO 203 to Yamaha 3060 to LG65C6) If I change inputs on the AVR then return to the OPPO input, it always comes back normal and continues to stay connected. I tried several suggestions from this group; nothing eliminated this nuisance problem. Never have this problem with a 4K Roku that runs through the AVR to the LG, seems specific to the OPPO. (Disclaimer - cable from OPPO to AVR is longer than the cable from Roku to AVR. All are Premium Certified, had holographic logos on the packages.)

This is why I don't understand why people are paying $2,500 - $3,000 for UDP-205s (assuming people are paying close to the asking price).

Because Oppos are built to very high standards and do things that other players don't. No, they're probably not worth the outrageous prices some sellers are asking but they are still worth buying at fairly steep prices for many people, especially those who have a variety of media they want to play when other solutions don't exist.

I get all that. I have owned 2 83s, a 95, 105 and now a 203 so I am a big fan. However, it is really important for these players to be supported since the world of video and streaming is forever changing. In addition, they eliminated the video apps with the 203/205 which was a big negative.

I don't know the 205 terribly well but does it really have that many capabilities that other high-end players do not?

For you maybe but not important to me at all as there are plenty of apps built into my smart TV and there are also plenty of 'plug-in' devices that offer all the media apps you could ever need...

There are a lot of processors that do not support ARC so if one has one of those and wants to use the TV apps they can’t get multichannel sound.

I have a projector with no apps so having the apps in a BR player is valuable to me.

Many people here plug their Apple TV's or Roku's into the OPPO's HDMI input port or into their AVR's...

The problem with apps on the Oppos is that Oppo had to depend on the app creators and, being a fairly small player, Oppo rarely got much support for the apps from these creators. On the players that had apps, you might get the initial versions of the app (which was usually not the latest) and may one update if you were lucky. I think the whole thing of loading apps on their players was a PITA for Oppo so they stopped putting them on the players. As others have pointed out, there are plenty of ways to get well supported apps on devices that are readily available and pretty inexpensive.

What's important to each individual is what it is all about. I have Netflix on my cable box, TV, ATV and Wii. I personally prefer the ATV. So there was no need for my 4k player to have apps. Even when my 203D was in my main setup I rarely used the apps.

I agree. I never used the apps on my older Oppos. I have always used a Roku or ATV.

My point was that people are paying a lot of money for a unit which at some point may not be supported and the unit has fewer features than prior units.

I was not inferring that it is one-size-fits-all with BR players.

The disc is defective, or needs cleaning. Regardless of how clean it may look, clean it anyway. I recommend a good buffing with a soft lint-free cotton cloth.

I agree that sooner or later support will not be there. Can't remember the last time my 203D received an update. Besides, who knows what is coming next. 8K player anyone......

My Quincy Jones 75th birthday celebration disc was skipping and I was ready to buy a new one. Gave it a good cleaning ( I had tried several times before ) last week and now it plays fine. I didn't think it could be any cleaner, but apparently I was wrong. Water and a microfiber cleaning cloth.

For many it has little to do with movies and more to do with a high quality CD/SACD player with an awesome 2 channel DAC, or multichannel for those that prefer that. I still have my 95, it is nothing but a CD/SACD player. If FW updates for disc compatibility stop and that becomes important in the future, I'll relegate my 203 to music only, it's DAC is nearly as good as the 95 and does a much better job of playing music from USB than the 95 (all my CDs are on 256 GB flash drives). When that happens I'll just pick up a Sony for movies and keep the Oppo's as music players. I bought my 203 while they were still producing players, but picked up an extra after the 'announcement', so I bought into the inevitability like everyone else.

I’m glad the my didn’t do apps on the 20X. They could have never kept up with how Apple TV, fire tv, and roku and others have evolved.

I still hope we see maintenance updates for a while. Just once or twice a year is enough.

I’m considering myself in a waiting mode right now for what devices I use, awaiting CEDIA. I really hope I feel compelled to sell my Oppo by then anyway if Kaleidescape addresses a few things. I also have my eye on a Zappiti for my local media. I don’t even really use the Oppo to spin actual discs, I use the network playback.

I seemed to have resolved my Firestick through the HDMI in issues. I changed to a new "certified 4K" hdmi cable from the player to the tv and turned OFF the internet connection in the player. No flashes, no warnings, just a good clean connection and the picture looks so much better than plugging the stick directly into my LG E8....not to mention you get to change the video ratio on widescreen videos. I chose to use the NON by pass connection as the DV through the firestick provided by Amazon just doesn't look good to me.

Hello all!

Maybe someone can help me here. I‘m trying to control my oppo 203 over a web browser. Got the PDF with the HTML IP commands but I‘m not really into this HTML stuff.

Got the following command working fine which pauses the player:

ip address/sendremotekey?{"key":"PAU"}

Trying now to figure out now how I can get the remaining play time query right:

ip address/sendremotekey?{"key":"QRE"}‘

Hello,

I'm looking for some help that I'm sure should have a relatively simple solution? I've recently acquired and set up an LG OLED 65B8PUA TV and an Oppo UDP-203 with a new HW-N950 Sound Bar. Everything seems to work fine except that I cannot play the multichannel layer of SACD's...CD and stereo layer play fine and sound OK thru the N950, but the M/C layer sounds like it's playing in slow motion with accompanying low octave strange sounds. I've tried all manner of configuring the Oppo to somehow play M/C but it simply won't. All connections are HDMI high speed cables, with Roku Ultra and Oppo (main) out to N950 in; N950 ARC out to LG ARC in. I must say that I just received this OPPO from an individual on eBay, so I can only assume that it isn't defective, but M/C SACD play thru the soundbar is one of the main reasons that I purchased this equipment. Also, just for a test I changed the Oppo HDMI output (main) to the 1.4 (audio only), and it didn't seem to make any difference.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions !!

Was there anything wrong with the answers I gave you here: https://www.avforums.com/threads/opp...#post-27264990 and here: https://www.avforums.com/threads/opp...#post-27265034

Put simply... Your Samsung HW-N950 soundbar does not support DSD decoding or multi-channel PCM decoding!

(Signal path - OPPO 203 to Yamaha 3060 to LG65C6) If I change inputs on the AVR then return to the OPPO input, it always comes back normal and continues to stay connected. I tried several suggestions from this group; nothing eliminated this nuisance problem. Never have this problem with a 4K Roku that runs through the AVR to the LG, seems specific to the OPPO. (Disclaimer - cable from OPPO to AVR is longer than the cable from Roku to AVR. All are Premium Certified, had holographic logos on the packages.)
I too am having the occasional connection error and other quirks..... Seems a lot folks just want to know if a firmware update is coming out soon.... Is that too much to ask for, especially since the player is discontinued.. Do we really need the beta testers to be completely silent under the secrecy of the holy grail... I would think not.. Geeee... just let us know if one coming out soon. 😳

Does the Oppo 203 stream .mkv off of usb drive complete with lossless audio such as Atmos, HD etc?

Can the UHD slider be used to tone map with streaming .mkv for those with projectors?

Anyone have slight av sync issues with hdmi in? I’m wondering if I use the dual hdmi output, 1 for video direct to tv and 1 for audio to AVR that would help?

Hi guys what is the difference between these two options..

I've always had my oppo on hdr auto with javs curves. Then last week i set it up like this and the image became a bit brighter..

Oppo - strip metadata
JVC picture mode hdr, color profile bt.2020, color temp hdr, gamma custom 3, correction value import which is one of javs curves..

Strip Metadata was the early SDR/BT2020 option before the HDR OFF BT2020/BT709 tone mapping was added. But Strip Metadata has the same issue as HDR OFF BT2020; it doesn't preserve the BT2020 color space. Colors within the BT2020 output container only reach REC709 targets.

Is having the oppo set up the way i describe above is it any better than setting it like this.

Oppo, strip metadata or hdr off
jvc, natural mode, BT2020 for color space, custom 2.4 gamma

Feel like kicking my own ass for selling this thing... now I’m on the market for one again...

Can you tell me, does the HDR slider work with MKV movies off of USB? I have a projector and need to adjust for tone mapping. I remember it worked well for discs but never tried it while streaming .MKV off of USB drive…
