I posted a quick cable test you can perform a few pages back (complete with a bandwidth requirement chart) :
AVgeek99 and galonzo thanks for the recommendations ... I will give them a try.

At least I know the Oppo and Monoprice are certified for the 18 Gbps ... the Monster "claims" 27 and I have that one running from Marantz 5010 to Sony TV

Besides making sure your cables are "premium certified," you may want to try using the two cable solution vs. running one. Some Oppo owners have had issues when using their D&M units in the video chain, I believe the culprit is 4k, 4:2:2 10 bit (or 12) - sorry I haven't kept up with this since I am a 2 cable guyand I've been doing it that way since I bought my first Oppo - the 83. Oppo is aware as well as D&M. Apologies if you knew this already. Good luck, your symptoms definitely check all the cable is the issue boxes.

Just watched last night Allied movie in 4k on 203 and all was perfect. Not single hiccup with video or sound. Night before I try BD movie Ted and also all worked like I'm use to from my old 103D.

Thanks ... I will try the two cable approach. When I first got the 203 we had some freeze ups so I used the 2 cable solution to resolve until the first beta firmware release which seemed to address most issues. I do have the latest firmware in the Oppo, Sony and Marantz ... some were recent large updates so this could have exasperated the known problem.

Coincidentally my Oppo 83 works great in the same set-up.

Since I do have 3D movies, used both HDMI outs to connect the audio to my AVR and the TV. Threw Hacksaw Ridge 4k on the player and it started right up. Picture looked excellent to my eyes.

Very happy with my purchase and anxious to get the 4k TV. Thinking about an OLED. Since I am keeping the VT50, may go ahead and get a 2017 model even though they do not play 3D movies.
I'd get the Sony Z9D to get the most you can get out of HDR, and it has OLED Blacks to which makes it the best TV on the market today.

Try setting color space to 4:2:2. Last firmware has a tendency to make the 203 want to handshake at 4:4:4. This can cause problems with borderline cables.
I don't care what Monster claims. They often exaggerate their claims and charge top dollar for their products. I'm not sure what length you're traversing but for 25' or less try the certified premium Monoprice cables. They are cheap enough to try and have a lifetime warranty.

BTW, Sony is using LG panels. So, how "off" can a pixel be? Sony's Double Off Pixels (DOP), for blacker blacks? Anyway, a bit off topic IMHO.

The Sony Z9D is LCD, not OLED, yet it puts out 1838 Nits where the OLED'S can't break 750 nits.

Just a suggestion. But, since Necromancer is no longer keeping this Thread updated (Firmware Listing) why not start an Official Part 2 Thread?

A few reasons to do so:

To have updated Firmware status on the first page.
To eliminate the first 300+ pages of issues as they have been fixed by Firmware.
To reduce the amount of reading a new person must do to catch up.
To regain control of the Official Thread by an Active Member.

I bet we could come up with even more reasons. But I think that is enough to merit a Part 2 Thread.

I think you meant to write "exacerbated" (exacerbate = to make [a problem, bad situation, or negative feeling] worse).

Don't get exasperated, though; we'll just blame it on Spellcheck, shall we?

Sorry, I don't have any one manufacturer's model numbers and associated technology committed to memory. I was thrown by the OLED comment; coulda' said "... an LED with OLED-like blacks...., to be clearer. Nevertheless, I still think it's a bit off topic and, quite frankly, wouldn't be offended in the least if one of the mods deleted this entire sub-thread. That's what I get told all the time; your nits are just too small.

Clark Burk; Thanks ... I will run the stress test as is to understand if there is a weak cable. And progress to selectively taking the Marantz out of the middle and/or use the two cable set-up along with your approach on 4:2:2. Now that you mention it Auto used to default to color space 4:2:2 at 10 bit ... now its 4:4:4

If that still doesn't resolve or I find the cables don't pass the stress test I'll remove the Monster (9 foot UltraHD Black Platinum 4K HDMI Cable) and replace with the certified premium Monoprice version. If it turns out to be the Monster cable ... back it will go to Best Buy as defective.

External subtitles are a problem over DLNA; I'm forgetting if anyone found a server that could make this work, and if it worked with the 203.

They are supported over SMB and on local storage.

You can also copy the subtitles into the MKV file with mkvmerge and that is supported by DLNA.

We will need more information please. All the 4K players have gotten good reviews. All have room for improvement.

What is your price range?
What other features besides 4K playback are you looking for ?? The Oppo is a true universal player- DVD, BR, 3-D BR, CD, SACD, DVD-A, etc. The Oppo is void of apps like Netflix, Amazon, Pandora, etc.

What exactly are your needs and desires?

Could use a bit of help

Ok folks here's a new one (at least for me). Tried playing a reg Blu-ray disc and now after the TCFHE logo I get a red banner indicating I need a firmware update to play the disc. The frustrating part is that I've played this disc days ago and all was fine.

I'm currently at version: UDP20X-38-0222. I also erased the Flash Storage; cycled the player several times, and inspected and cleaned the disc (although it appeared clean to begin with).

Wonder if anyone else has had this issue and has a possible solution. Only happens with this particular disc (Lost In Space- Complete Collection: S3D4). Swapped out disc with Passagers (Blu-ray Disc to watch spec features) and no issues. Replaced with LIS disc and still had firmware warning.

Any help (besides criticizing a grown man from watching Lost In Space) would be helpful

Thx

No doubt some high-end manufacturer will take Oppo's UHD chassis, put it in a shiny box, stick their logo on the front, charge an ungodly sum for it and, here's the important part, take their hands, and waving them in a dervish fashion above each unit, chant some words in an ancient far eastern tongue no one today understands. Then and only then will that be the best 4K player money can buy.

Then and only then will that be the best 4K player money can buy.
It will need a much better more expensive power cord too.

I'm currently at version: UDP20X-38-0222. I also erased the Flash Storage; cycled the player several times, and inspected and cleaned the disc (although it appeared clean to begin with).

Wonder if anyone else has had this issue and has a possible solution. Only happens with this particular disc (Lost In Space- Complete Collection: S3D4). Swapped out disc with Passagers (Blu-ray Disc to watch spec features) and no issues. Replaced with LIS disc and still had firmware warning.

Any help (besides criticizing a grown man from watching Lost In Space) would be helpful

Thx
Contact Oppo support with the name of the disc and UPC code, that might be a BD+ update. Is it by chance a Fox title?

It is a TCF Disk according to that picture.

Why waste $ on more cheap stuff, it's like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

Connecting computer to the 203

I only have one ethernet port on my computer and that is connected to my modem. Do you mean to just run the ethernet cable from the 203 directly to one of the inputs on the back of the modem?




Let me ask you this, does the 203 work with windows XP because I have an older computer that I could set up to use exclusively with it? I would just run the ethernet out from computer to ethernet input on 203, I don't have any need for having the 203 connected to the internet.


Thanks,

You mean you don't use bespoke mains? Man, what an abecedarian!

Don't you just wish HDMI would crawl off to some darkened corner and die a sad, lonely death?

I'm also thinking about just getting a 2TB external HDD, just don't think USB cable can pass 4K HDR content thru it.



So the 203 doesn't have it's own platform for navigating to files stored on an HDD?





Hard-wiring really isn't supported well......really! This is a stand alone Blu Ray player for TV's, hard wiring should be the best connection. Your making me have second thoughts and I already ordered it thru Crutchfield, should be here tomorrow or next day. Well, they do have a 60 day return policy so I'll just have to work the hell out of to see exactly what it's capable of.


Thanks,
Bruce
