Welcome to the party! I only use this player for UHD disk playback and streaming HDR via the HDMI input (Roku Premier Plus, so that all HDR is on one input on my display), so I can't comment on any issues with network playback that has some wanting to know about rolling back their firmware to the last official (which used to be possible, but not any more). I will say, the notes for the beta claims to have a fix for the BR2049 UHD disk, but on the last official (54-1127, which is what your player will prompt you to update to via network once you have it connected), I was able to play through from beginning to end without issue. Also, I've been keeping a running list
of UHD disks that I haven't had any issues with since I got my player in Dec. 2016, FYI.

Frame Rate: 60p
HDR Format: SDR
Color Space: BT709 YCbCr 4:2:2 12bit
So it appears it isn't working. I'm thinking now I should report this to Oppo directly unless anyone else has more suggestions?
You should reomve power from the Roku and change the 203 to System>>Input>>UHD HDR, then power the Roku up and try HDR again
Also, if this issue ever does get fixed, doe the HDR Off/BT2020 tone mapping work for the HDMI Input, or is it just for UHD Discs?
It is already fixed (it works fine here), and like
already mentioned, the HDR Off/BT2020 tone mapping does also work for the HDMI input.
So what is the point of it? Try to use the native refresh rate of the content being played? Do it actually give you 24Hz native content when playing something on Netflix, Amazon, etc, once you get through all the constant changes and actually start watching something?
This setting is not quite 100% yet, but yes, when it does work, you can get the native refresh rate of the show/movie (as mentioned, navigating Netflix with it set to ON isn't the easiest, but with a little patience, it can be done); so I leave it set to OFF and have a pretty stable experience with the Roku going into the HDMI input of the 203.
