Hi all,

I have a 203 coming today. Are there any settings I need to change or can I leave everything as default? Also, does the 203 have issues with noisy disc drive?

Thanks!

We would need to know more (anything, really) about the rest of your gear before we could be helpful.

See Recommended Settings for some ideas.

Great thank you. I'm running a 5.1.2 setup with a LG B7A. I was looking for other folks feedback concerning the drive noise

No. The player is a solid build all around, which really combats this issue compared to players with lighter construction and less attention to detail than what Oppo puts into things. They are not cheap for many good reasons, this is just one of them.

As I recall, there've been a lot of review comments to that effect regarding that disc.

Try some other discs too, or check your video level settings using a calibration disc such as Spears & Munsil v2, Blu-ray.

Check Setup > Device Setup > Firmware Information. Your Main Firmware version number should end 56-0224. If so you are good to go.

(Some folks in the US are probably just discovering this new firmware now, and the overseas versions are just now coming out for folks in Europe, etc.)

No issues with my X930D, only one disc since update (Ghost In The Shell), but lots of assorted *black* content from a USB drive, no issues with blacks! Looks fantastic.

Been using a panasonic 900 / HDFury Integral to play HDR discs at SDR / BT2020 on my JVC PJ. It works very well.

1) Can the Oppo, with this latest FW, do this without needing the HDFury? How are the subjective results compared to Panny / Fury combo?

2) Can a streamer (say, Shield TV) output 4K HDR (DV or HDR10) @ 24p into the Oppo, and have the Oppo perform the HDR / SDR BT 2020 conversion out to the JVC PJ as above?

Seems the Oppo has evolved quite a bit recently; I know 6 months ago it had some issues. Hopefully these have been resolved?

1) I don't need a HDFury device with my LS10k since beginning.
2) HDR10 is supported on HDMI IN while Dolby Vision is not. HDR to SDR tone mapping is working for HDMI IN.

This thread might be interesting to those with that type of question.

"Interstellar" is on post #18 .

== edit
Also note post #55

"Interstellar is an odd one though,

It has true 0 nit content, yet some scenes on the UHD disc are raised quite a bit vs the bluray versions, even the scene where you expect to see true black deep starfield as the bluray version has.... "

If you want HDR to SDR conversion with the BT.2020 color gamut preserved, I recommend you use the new Off (BT.2020) choice.

In particular, if you were using Strip Metadata in the prior firmware, then Off (BT.2020) is likely what you want now.

The Strip Metadata choice still exists, and is described as for use with displays that apply, "Custom HDR processing". So far OPPO has not further explained what they mean by this. But early on in this brave new world of HDR there was a suggestion going around that some displays would use the LACK of certain HDR metadata fields to trigger different tone-mapping. Indeed there were some discs issued with some metadata fields deliberately MISSING in the expectation that the display would do something magical. If anyone here figures out a good use for Strip Metadata at this point, by all means post what you've found.

You tried changing between IEC and RAW on SPMC/System/Settings/Audio Output?

There are two places, Audio Output Device and Passthrough Output Device.

The output varies in Kodi/SPMC on the Shield, depending on what versions of software and firmware you have.

I really wish OPPO would remove this option from the menus. It only serves to confuse matters. The previous "strip metadata" feature has never really worked properly as it crushed blacks anywhere between 2% and 5%. On the other hand, the new HDR off (BT2020) feature works amazingly well. If you own a display that that does not have sufficient brightness for acceptable HDR (peojectors), you will want to stick with HDR off (BT2020) and pretend the strip metadata isn't even there.

There's so much information here, so I'm sorry if this has already been asked. Which Oppo 203 settings should I use to strip the HDR on my Sony 45es 1080p projector, so I can take advantage of Dolby Atmos on 4k UHD Blu Rays?

Also will these settings change the PQ for my 1080p movies? I'm more than satisfied with my current 1080p picture settings.

HDR = Off would be appropriate for your 1080p display. It is unlikely to accept rec2020 color space, so you can ignore the other HDR values.

This is good for both UHD and BR discs.

Not sure if your PJ falls into this category, but it appears that some Sony Projectors will not switch to BT2020 if it does not receive a signal with the HDR flag in the metadata. So, if you ask the OPPO to either strip metada or tone map internally, the projector will see that as a SDR signal and automatically default to BT709. In such cases, you will be losing out on the glories of the extended color gamut that BT2020 affords.

edit: I just realized that you PJ is native 1080p/rec709 so this post would not apply to your particular situation.

Yep, tried them both, one of those settings crashed my Shield.

It looks like a handshaking issue somewhere in the chain, but Oppo tech support was unable to resolve the issue.

I'm going to attempt a full reinstall on the Shield which shouldn't take no longer than 30 minutes since I have all my apps on my Google drive to reinstall.

I haven't had issues with the TV rebooting (knock on wood) and that's a good thing.

Just updated my Oppo 203 to latest US firmware UDP20X-56-0224 and now my Nintendo Switch will not work on the HDMI In. It was working fine before but now I am getting no image. I am sure it is just a setting but I cannot find it for the life of me. I tested my Switch connected to both my LG C7 and going through my Xbox OneX and confirm it works fine through both. I just prefer running it through my Oppo because I can program my Harmony remote to switch to HDMI In automatically for the Wife and still get surround sound. Anyone else having issues with Nintendo Switch or other 1080p devices through HDMI In?

If you own a display that that does not have sufficient brightness for acceptable HDR (peojectors), you will want to stick with HDR off (BT2020) and pretend the strip metadata isn't even there.
So I'm going to give the Oppo a whirl now with this new FW and all. Have been doing something similar with Panny 900 / HDFury / JVC PJ to watch 4K HDR in SDR/BT2020.

Want to see how the Oppo and my Shield behave with that HDMI input...

Being new to the Oppo, what settings would I need to verify to replicate what I'm doing with the above setup?

I'm sure there are a few key settings (for Atmos, for no HDR, but SDR with bt2020, etc...) that need to be ticked just right.

And in the above, I presume you need to leave "strip metadata" un-checked or off in the latest FW?

Thanks!

Alright guys, hopefully you don't mind helping me diagnose my problem.

Here's my setup:

JVC RS420 PJ
Denon X4300
Oppo UDP-203
Nvidia Shield
Xbox One X

I rip all my Blu-Ray UHD 4K discs and them on a hard drive for ease of use (yes, lazy, I know). I play my 4K UHD files through my Nvidia Shield, through the media player Kodi. I'm brand new to the Oppo 203 (have only had it for about a week and haven't messed around with it). I just installed the most recent update, did a factory reset, unplugged it, and it shows the correct firmware.

I initially had my Xbox and Nvidia Shield going into my AVR, then from my AVR out to the input on the Oppo, then Output to my JVC. I then tried plugging directly from the Shield, to the Oppo, then to the AVR to see if that would make a difference, no dice.

Here's my issue - If I run HDR Off (BT.2020), I can't get HDR to engage at all. As you can see in the first set of pictures, the HDMI Input is HDR, but the output ends up being SDR. As a result, the color is dark and the color gamut is a mess (over saturated, highlights blown out, and just a mess). The only way I've been able to get HDR to engage is by setting the HDR setting to Auto and/or Forced, but using this method, the picture quality is quite dull and I know it is capable of looking much better. I know one option is to upload customs curves, but I was hoping to use the Oppo's HDR settings instead.

Here are some pictures if it helps. I've tried all the different settings in the Oppo App, Auto everything, fixed color space, etc., and no dice.



Any help is greatly appreciated as I'm completely lost.
