If you are using a programmable Remote, check to see if the shutoff is related to doing some other sort of operation with the Remote. There may be an error in your setup of that Remote such that it thinks you no longer need the OPPO powered when you do that other operation.
Thanks Bob. HDMI CEC if OFF on the 203. When it happens, I'm not using the remote.

I am pretty sure it is. I have rebooted the NAS in an attempt to fix this. I just assumed the issue was with the OPPO, but I will do some research to see if is a QNAP issue.

Thanks Bill.

I have sorta of a doubt about Oppo's MediaControl app on my iPhone. Reliability is average when in use: maybe it's sending data when not in use?

Please see pics 2 and 3.

I noticed on Pic 4 that it says HDR format as SDR, so I went back into Video SetUp and changed the HDR Setting from Auto > Forced.

This started playing the movie in HDR10 but the colour was all wrong. See Pic 5.

So I changed it back to Auto and it is back to HDR Format : SDR and Pic 6 shows better colour.

Is there a way to watch in HDR or HDR10 without the dodgy colour output?

Pic 7 show the current Video Setup.
I'm late to the party, and this is just another user that has a very similar issue, not a solution, sorry, but I use a similar workaround. I don't have 4K discs come out in 1080p, but because my display also apparently indicates that it can't do HDR when playing a disc in the Oppo (and it can, as it's an LG EF559500), I also use forced HDR, and when I do, I get the exact same red-saturated pictures when the 4K disc is DolbyVision rather than HDR-10. The display I have is NOT DV capable. What I do for those DV discs is change the color space to 2020 SDR, and then I get reasonable colors, but still in 4K.

I've tried many times to find out why the Oppo thinks the LG is not HDR capable (my Roku Ultra thinks the same thing, but for my ATV 4K, I just force HDR, and it works), but I've never figured out the reason. The Denon 8500 should be able to pass the 4K HDR indicator from the TV to the source device, the LG TV is set to receive the HDR signals, and I'm using all premium certified HDMI cables, and yet, for some reason, my LG is apparently advertising itself as NOT 4K HDR capable. Your display may be doing the same. I've actually considered getting an HDFury Vertex to solve the issue. I just haven't been annoyed enough to pay an additional $300 to solve the problem. I was hoping the Oppo HDR force function could make this work OK, as it is supposed to change DV to HDR-10 in "forced" mode, but it doesn't do that correctly if it detects the display as non-HDR.

Some TV has only few full 2.0 HDMI specs. My TV has only two of four HDMI rated 2.0, for instance. If you are not using a full bandwidth one it will be limited. May be your case? Did you try changing TV input?

You can't send HDR10 to a TV that does not support HDR10 and expect to get proper color. Not possible unless you can create a custom PQ gamma curve in your TV.

There's so many pages in this thread, that it's hard to find any fixes or if it's just a common issue for the 203, but I have a mix of .m2ts and .mkv files full of demo trailers that have a range of SDR, HDR10, Vision, Atmos, TrueHD, DTS-X, DTS-HD MA. I have video out to the LG OLED TV and audio out to my Integra pre-amp.


In terms of audio, sometimes watching the files has no issues and I can watch a whole heap in a row. Everything is detected by the pre-amp as the correct audio, but suddenly the ATMOS files will have no sound altogether, and then after that, all the files will have no audio. I can see the pre-amp display not changing, which I guess it's not handshaking the sound through the HDMI as I test each video out. Have tried different cables. Sometimes watching a basic stereo file will help, then other times I can't get any sound out of anything unless I power cycle the 203 player.


The files with Dolby Vision only come up as HDR10 through the TV with HDR settings set to Auto. If I set it to forced Dolby Vision on the 203, suddenly the normally blue Oppo menu hue changes to green, and then watching any video files, even SDR or Dolby Vision files, the picture will be highly saturated and the colour hue is not right. Again, power cycling will help, but then it just happens again after a few videos. So I cannot leave the 203 player set to forced Vision without these picture issues, but then set to Auto doesn't detect the Dolby Vision. Vision has no issue being detected on official UHD discs.



It only seems to happen though to files on a USB 3.0 external/thumb drives. Are all these issues built in on purpose by Oppo? Or more of a HDMI/MKV issue.

Welcome to the longstanding "bug" which was even present with the 103 - so no hope for a fix. There are a few options for workarounds...

Issue:
The concern is when switching between Dolby THD and DTS HD MA soundtracks.

Option 1 - reboot between playing different ones (not very convenient)
Option 2 - organise your files so they are in Folders, of Dolby and DTS tracks, and minimise your issue to "once per" demo when changing Folders.
Option 3 - Switch to a DD track, and back again to the DD THD or DTS will "fix" the lack of sound. This works well with movies - ALWAYS Rip with an extra Dolby Digital track to allow this option easily.

Oppo provide great media playback - but the manual makes it clear it is on a "best intentions" basis. Now you know how to get round it, its not that bad - except for "short demo" clips. Its perfectly acceptable for movies IMO.

I believe that MKV does not support Dolby Vision. So if you force DV in the Oppo it is converting HDR10 to Dolby Vision. Also, set the Oppo to "TV Led" Dolby Vision.

I appreciate the suggestion, but yes, I've tried different TV inputs, different receiver inputs, different receivers (4200 and 8500), not using the receiver at all and going directly to the device, different HDMI cables, different HDR modes on the Oppo, different source devices. At this point, I've pretty much exhausted the possibilities, and although the Oppo's HDR "force" function doesn't work for me on DV discs, given the results, I have to assume that it's my display that has the issue, even though others with the same display don't have the problem.

I really wish the 203 could completely work around the problem (as I was hoping the Oppo DV HDR force would), but at least it has ways of ameliorating it. I'm probably just going to have to spring for a new display at some point. Although with none supporting 3D any longer, I really don't want to give up that feature...even to get working DolbyVision.

Right now, I'm just happy that 2020 SDR seems to work reasonably well on the 203. Even if the colors aren't perfect, they look pretty good to me.

What happens if you cycle through the Resolution options with the remote? The front panel should show the selections.

Press and hold the Resolution button and Output Resolution, HDR, Color Space, Color Depth will be reset to factory defaults. Does that do anything for you?

FWIW, I can restart my Denon X6400H and it fixes this problem. When I reboot the AVR, it always comes up on a different input, so I switch it to the input for the 203, and everything works on the audio side.
I have been aware of the Oppo "bug" for sometime and the above is what I have done. For some reason at one point I clicked the wrong button and turned off the AVR. I think this is marginally quicker. No need to eject a disk or browse back to the right place on a network share to resume play. Not sure why it works, but it has worked consistently for me since I discovered it. It may be resetting the HDMI handshake has something to do with it... Anyway I would be interested to hear if the same method works for others. Also would like to hear what people have to say about why it would work.

Sorry if this sounds obvious, but, did you enable UHD color mode on your TV? Did you try messing around with Oppo color space and color depth setings?

By the way, I really miss watching 3D movies at home.

WTF: Oppo 203 Media Control Android App?

I have the Oppo 203 Media Control Android app (version 1.2.0.3789) on my retired Samsung S7. I recently got an S9+ and I wanted to install the 203 Media app. It's not in the google play store anymore.

Can someone clue me in on where to find the Oppo 203 Media Control Android app (version 1.2.0)?

BTW, WTF in the Subject means "Where To Find".

Running into an issue with the 203 tonight.
Player is connected directly to the tv (LG OLED C6P) with the included cable. Watched a DV title the other night with no problems. Put one in tonight and the screen goes black as soon as the DV title displays on the TV.

Tried multiple cables and inputs. Tv and opportunity are both on the latest input. Reset the player to factory settings and DV worked.. but it was 1080p. See output to 4k and it broke again.
Reset tv to default and no change.

4K HDR10 is fine but Dolby vision is doing this every time. Hard reset tv and player multiple times with no luck. Any ideas?

Reset tv to default and no change.

4K HDR10 is fine but Dolby vision is doing this every time. Hard reset tv and player multiple times with no luck. Any ideas?
What was the movie? Sometimes cables do go bad.. however unlikely it seems.

Assuming you are on latest firmware for the player and the TV?

Yes, I've enabled UHD mode on the inputs. I've tried disabling and re-enabling to see if it made a difference. No joy. It's a bit of a pain on the LG to do that, since the TV reboots when you change the UHD color mode on one of the inputs.

In any case, yes, both my wife and I enjoy 3D a lot, which the 203 makes very easy, so I'm not planning to upgrade my display for a while. It's a bummer that Oppo is getting out of the business, because I think they could have fixed the HDR force mode so that DV colors work right even on my display. It would be easy to say get another player, and one day I might have to, but having one as good as the 203 that I also made region-free for a lot of my content makes it worth putting up with the firmware glitches that will no longer get fixed. And of course, since it's my display with the issue, it's not really their problem, and another player might not handle it well either. They have worked with me in the past though to fix bugs with content, so they might have been able to help with this one too if they had stayed in business. Oh well, that's this hobby.

Thanks for taking the time to try to help.

Great minds! I discovered powerline (accidentally) a few days ago and have wired everything up. It works almost flawlessly!

I just have one remaining niggle. For some reason there is still an occasional mismatch between the audio playing and the display info. Last night on the Oppo an album fell out of step by 5 seconds. Just now my receiver fell out of step by 2 minutes, i.e. the display/track/time was 2 minutes behind the audio.

Is this a FLAC problem, i.e. caused by the time/effort needed to decode the file? It's clearly not player specific. Just wondering. Do any of you clever chaps know?

Tried Venom when I first noticed it. The 2nd one was IT which worked fine 2-3 days ago

Tried 3 different cables and 3 different inputs. Tried multiple configs on the 203 with restarting the player in energy efficient mode each time to make sure it changed

Converting to hdr10 worked fine.. but I'd prefer Dolby vision

That looks OK, given that you are in Europe and use 50Hz video. So the video output in the player is actually functioning.

It looks to me like the player's Copy Protection check isn't happy with what it is getting back from the projector, so it is muting the video output to black.

I suggest you turn off BOTH the projector and the player. Then unplug both of them from wall power. Then, while still unplugged, press and hold the front panel Power button on the player for a few seconds (to discharge any residual power). This combo forces a complete reboot of the player (and hopefully also of the projector).

Then plug both back in. Now turn on JUST the projector. Wait until it is fully booted up. Then turn on the player and see if you get video. If NOT, press the Resolution button on the OPPO remote to cycle through the choices of Custom, Auto, and Source Direct (as shown in the player's front panel display) to see if any of those give you video. Wait about 10 seconds on each of those choices, as it may take the player and projector a bit of time to implement the change.

^ I want to confirm: You DO get video to the projector if you select to play video coming into the OPPO on its HDMI Input, correct?

If true, I think this may be beyond your ability to fix.

Do you have another TV you can try to see if this problem is specific to your projector?

The player may need service, so at this point I’m mainly trying to collect information.

It all started when the 203 would'nt let me play a 3D movie,saying my PJ was'nt compatible with the format,which it is.
I then would try my 105D through the HDMI Input,but I hit the Pure Audio by mistake.When I turned off Pure Audio the video did'nt come back,and have'nt since.The 105D plays fine trough the HDMI In Bypass input on the 203 so I got to see the movie in 3D.
I have a little TV I use for menus from my 105D.Connected the 203 to that and got video.Hit the Pure Audio button and video went black and when I turned it off video did not come back on the TV either.I'm on the latest EU firmware.Cables and PJ is the same I've used with the 203 all the time.
I've contacted the place where I bought it and they was to contact their supplier for further instructions.I have not much
hope for getting the player serviced in Norway.

I think there might be a glitch in the Oppo UDP-203 and Dolby Vision titles.. is someone able to test/confirm this?

Player: UDP-203 - Most recent firmware
TV: LG OLED C6P - Most recent firmware

Create a new picture setting on the Oppo (I believe under Setup - Video - Picture Adjustment) as:
Contrast +3
Saturation +2
Sharpness +2

You'll need to fully shut down the player (make sure Energy Efficient is turned on, so it fully shuts down) and then start it up again.

Play a DolbyVision title after that.. Does the DolbyVision display normally? Or do you get a black video signal?

I've confirmed on my own player that setting these back to 0 on every setting does fix the issue.. And DolbyVision is supposed to ignore these picture settings entirely (only applying them to HDR10) but it seems to create an error with the picture. Once I set them back to 0 and re-start the player, it works fine.

I would recommend making a factory reset on the Oppo and try different power on sequences. First player, then PJ and vice versa. I sent my Oppo player to Oppo directly, when the drive was broken. That was no problem and took nearly the same time as in Country service.

However, I don't know if after cease of their business Oppo still offers this service.
Good luck and greetings to Norway.
