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 must have something like a local area network in your house. Your modem has several ethernet ports? It acts like a router? Meaning you can connect multiple computers and they are assigned IP addresses and can share files? If so then connecting the OPPO to one of those ports will enable it to see files on the other computers.

So the 203 doesn't have it's own platform for navigating to files stored on an HDD?
It does. The manual is online; have a look at it.

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.
You are not understanding what he said. He was trying to get you going without a router, which is really not a good idea in 2017.

USB should have plenty of bandwidth for passing 4K. The 203 has USB 3.0 which is more than adequate. The 203 does have built-in navigation for USB or network connected files but it is a bit clunky. There are iOS and Android apps but they have not yet been updated for the 203. The existing app can be made to work with the 203 but you have to enter specific network address information and not everything is supported in the old apps.

Just got my UHD-203 and it's another keeper.

Have one gripe, that persists from when I first got my BDP-93, and that is GAPs between flac files! I would have thought that Oppo would have gotten this seemingly simple item off the punch list; it is 2017, after all!

So, Dark Side of the Moon or St. Pepper over DLNA is still off the table, huh? Same for Santana, Moody Blues......... yeah, I'm old, but I still like to listen to albums that have gapless playback.

What's the big deal with this? Can anyone explain why is hasn't already happened? Thanks!

The 203 is supposed to do gapless flac, but I haven't figured it out either. Hopefully someone will give us some pointers.

Do you have physical copies of Dark Side, Sgt Peppers, and other gapless albums? If so you can rip a disc a single file. That's what I did with my gapless CDs. But that doesn't help if only have digital files, unless you want to burn them and then rip as a single file.

Sony XBR-75X940D -- Marantz AV8802A -- Paradigm 30th Anniversary Tribute Towers -- Paradigm Studio v5 CC590 --
Paradigm Studio v5 ADP590 (4) surrounds -- Cambridge Audio Azure 840W for Front R&L -- Onkyo TX-NR906 for Center and all Surrounds :( but it works --
Oppo UDP-203 -- Roku Ultra -- DirecTv HR54 DVR

Consider perusing the manual. Gapless is working for WAV and FLAC on attached storage. Open the folder with the files, highlight the 1st file, hit the "option" button and select gapless. Nothing has changed in this regard since the BDP-103.

Running Oppo 203 through HDMI to Marantz 5010 to Sony 79XBR900B. I have certified cables running <6' in length (tried Oppo, MonoPrice and overpriced Monster).

1) Almost every BD disc some time through the movie the screen will blink and go "gray" or "pink" with only sound. This happens regardless of the settings "Auto" or "Custom" settings and I'm limiting to BT709 4.4.4 for bluray. This is rectified by stopping and restarting the movie. What's odd is this happens more now than when I first received unit in December. This also happens with UHD 4K discs ... in Auto, forced or Strip Metadata. Interesting it mostly happens early in the movie and rarely twice ... otherwise picture looks great. All of these Bluray discs play fine on my old Oppo which is still active for my family to use when I'm not home.

2) Latest firmware fixed the 3D issues ... just an occasional gray screen.

3) Occasionally, there is a missed handshake and the unit will only play 1080 even if the source is 4K and displays 4K. This requires a power off (or unplug and reset like after adding new firmware). I have the latest firmware since I updated the 2/17 beta to the official firmware on website just to see if that would help.

Gazing through the forum looks like some of the issues are common ... although these gray and pink screens with only sound appear to be more my experience than others. I had none of these issues testing with Panny UB900 using same set-up so it tells me something is off for me.

Figured I'd check-in here before reaching out to Oppo tech support.
I had a pink screen issue as well that freaked me out when my 203 was outputting 1080 on 2160 4k discs.

What I did and you may try is:

1) Reset all settings 203 at default & make sure your cables are fine.

2) Tun off then on again your HDMI UHD COLOR setting on your TV with all your A/V on & connected & 203 as the source.

3) Turn on your 203 last & only after the AVR or TV has chosen it as the source for 5 seconds then turn on the 203 for correct EDID DRM handshakes. Normally the 203 would do the handshake correctly whenever it senses the source change in the chain but it was not for me hence the above turn on procedure that works until Oppo gets back to me on the huge log file I sent them.

Let us know your fix if it works.

If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got.

One of many things I love about the 203 is the info menu shows so much info like even the NITS the movie was initially graded in.

Good info I wondered what their NITS were on that set. Did you use the Klingon de-cloaking device to uncloak that Sony usually deep hidden info?

With the surprising advancements in LCD with the Z9D just imagine what 2018 will show at CES from all TPTB...

Hello,

I have connected my OPPO 203 to my LG C7 and Yamaha AVR, I'm getting the audio out of the TV instead of my AVR. I've looked through a few pages here and did a few searches - how do I get Audio to go out the secondary HDMI cable to the AVR? Feels like this shouldn't be that difficult so clearly I'm doing something wrong Thanks for the referral to the FAQ, Oppo has the settings for the OLED setup there.

I did have some weird graphical glitches testing out Pacific Rim at one point, video was breaking up a bit. Doesn't appear to be doing it now and could be due to me switch inputs, etc while trying to fix the audio issue.

I had sound through both 'blackouts".

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

Thanks,

This was my bad, I forgot that I moved some cables around when connecting the TV and moving components from the receiver direct to the TV. Once I select the correct HDMI AV # the sound works imagine that!

This is what I saw before upgrading to the Monoprice Certified Premium HDMI cables on my previous player (but not with 3D); you might try "stress testing" your cables, I posted a mini how-to a few pages back:

If you can watch with these settings without any blackouts or sparklies, then you have a passing cable.

I watched my Assassin's Creed UHD HDR disk last night and it mostly played perfectly. I was a little worried when the disk's short introductory file looked jerky and had a bunch of audio dropouts. Fortunately, the rest of the disk played without problems.

Let me address the dreaded frozen disk tray but for a moment. I have had it occur a few times since the most recent firmware update was rolled out but it has happened only three times in nearly a month. Even when it happens, all I have to do to clear is to press the On/Off button. I would prefer not to have to deal with the problem at all, of course, but in the greater scheme of things I don't worry about it. In fact, if it were my only worry, I wouldn't have any worries.

What you are saying is that the cable that comes with the player is not good enough?

There are many other Oppo 203 trays openening and closing every day in the wild and many/most of them are doing just fine. While your 3 incidents may be annoying, they don't constitute an epidemic.

Thanks for the information, rdgrimes...

Never had a 103... jumped from the 93, past it, to the 203.

I did peruse the manual, but obviously didn't scour it and missed the single line on page 21 and mention of page 21 on page 39...

I know, I know... RTFM... I've been away from the forum for too long.

It should be, but it wouldn't hurt to test it; also, if you're running through an AVR or other video processor, you'll also be testing the other cable(s) in the chain.

You are not understanding what he said. He was trying to get you going without a router, which is really not a good idea in 2017.

Okay, thanks Bill, I'm sure I'll have more questions when it arrives, tracking says it's out for delivery.

It's the WORST one for streaming apps.

It's pretty must the WORST one in terms of price. (Panasonic is giving it a challenge here.)

It seems to have a few more hiccups than some competitors in terms of disc playback for some people though most get resolved.

It is the best in terms of build quality, warranty coverage, customer service, audio format compatibility, and in terms of flexibility of video output (such as enabling SDR2020 playback of UHD BR).

What, if anything, should I deduce from this result?

Living Room: Sony XBR-65Z9D; Oppo UDP-203; Nvidia Shield TV; Roku Ultra; Denon AVR-X8500H (9.1.4/13.1); Polk Audio RTiA7 (Fl/r), CSiA6 (C), RTiA5 (Sl/r & FW), OWM5 (SB), 80F/X-RT (FH, RH); SVS SB-2000 (SW)
Bedroom: Sony XBR-55HX929, DarbeeVision DVP 5000S, Amazon Fire TV 4K, Yamaha R-N402 Network Receiver, Polk Audio LSiM703

I stopped the disk and restarted, no problem, erased Persistent Storage, no problem. Ejected and powered down and popped the disk in the Sammy UBD-K8500, no problem, and finally, popped it back into the 203 and got the stutter again.

Otherwise, like you, the movie itself played flawlessly, even with a few pause breaks thrown in (bathroom, calls, etc.).
