I guess you could have done much the same by transferring some DSD128 files onto a USB flash-drive and inserting it into your Denon's USB port

I did that originally, and the Denon played DSD128. I have to verify what rdgrimes said, "..DSD64 can be bitstreamed over HDMI, DSD128 and DSD256 cannot. This is a limitation of HDMI, not of the player or processor." Still can't find any documentation to back that up.

You were playing the files directly, not bitstreaming over HDMI. You're chasing wild geese here, its not possible for the Oppo to bitstream DSD128+ over HDMI. (Nor would you hear any difference if it could.)

If you are into listening to 'multi-channel' audio, you'll probably find that your AVR is unable to do this for all audio formats when pulling them directly from your NAS or even a USB connected HDD. Have you tried?

Yes, I thought about that right after I posted, (I compared apples to oranges). Thanks.

Like another recently said, I gave in to AVS peer pressure and just bought a 203. I had been waiting for my current TV (2007 42" 720p Panny plasma) to die before moving towards a UHD ecosystem. However, with Oppo's decision to no longer make players, I felt I would start the process. The next step will be a newer AVR with multi-analog audio inputs (Marantz 5xxx/6xxxx?) so I can take advantage of hi rez audio files without having to keep my TV on or transfer them to a USB flash drive. Once the Panny goes, I am leaning towards the latest TCL 6-series for the price-to-value it offers. Although I have been a long time lurker, I will be viewing this thread more closely for issues/mitigations/enhancements as I learn the player's capabilities and limitations. You may see me ask a question at some point, but I will do my best to do due diligence before asking.

If you prefer analogue amps, why not do what I have done and buy/use a good quality stereo integrated amplifier along with say, three (matching) stereo power amplifiers. You can turn your amps on, as and when you need them. You can even hide the power amps out of view

I still face some HDMI issues, when switching discs BR > 3D or UHD HDR -> UHD DV.
The fix is usually to swith off/on the 203. But it remains anoying.
Yes, I did fully reset, after the latest firmware update.

The strangest one is while loading the DV disc. The screen Dolby Vision is presented on my LG E6, but the screen remains black.
203 is connected directly to the TV for picture, and sound via hdmi to my Denon.

Any thoughts? Or better send a mail to Oppo....

Check that the firmware is also up to date on the LG E6 and that ALL of your HDMI cables are Premium Certified. If you have anything else in the HDMI path, including switches, adapters, or wall plates, test by bypassing all of those so you have only simple, direct, single cable HDMI connections.

If this does not lead to a simple solution, get in touch with OPPO Digital Tech Support for more help diagnosing this.

^ Just so you know, I'm also using an LG E6 with my 205 (dual HDMI cabling), and I'm not experiencing these issues.

While waiting to hear back from OPPO, here's another thing you can try: HDMI is just friction fit, and it only takes a small shift of plug in socket to screw things up.

So double check that all of your HDMI plugs are fully inserted straight into the socket, with nothing, e.g., cable weight or kinks in the cable, tugging on the plug in any direction. To do this, unplug and replug each plug, and check by grasping the cable an inch or so back of the plug and giving it a little wiggle to check the plug is fully inserted and that there's no stress on the plug from the cable. Do this with the HDMI path to your Denon as well.

Also, if you have an additional HDMI connection into another input of the TV from the output of the Denon, try physically disconnecting that temporarily to see if that cures the problem. If so, there may be workarounds related to trying to keep that unused HDMI path actually shut down when it is not in use.

Just a quick personal testimonial and lamentation that oppo is getting out of the Blu Ray player game.

I bought the OPPO 203 primarily for it's HDMI input and dual outputs. At the time of purchase I didn't properly value/understand just what "a great blu ray player" could be; I see now just what "value-added" is with the price increase that comes with an OPPO purchase, but at the time I was justifying the price upgrade as being more affordable than a cheaper blu ray player PLUS an HDMI splitter (to get Lossless Blu Ray audio and 4K HDR Video from my NVidia Shield to my TV and AVR in parallel, as I couldn't pass from either device to the other in series).

The last firmware update really caused me some grief in terms of A/V sync. I don't know why. But I reached out to OPPO support and asked for their help on March 2. We went back and forth with e-mails for a few days, and I didn't get any resolution to the problem. But 3 or 4 weeks later, OPPO e-mails me unsolicited, following up on my feedback, with a "test firmware" to try. For reasons I won't expound upon, I wasn't able to get around to installing it until today, but this test firmware they sent me works. My A/V sync problem seems to be resolved. So I had to take to the internet and share this. A "big company" like this keeping a "ticket" open for several weeks and then following up, unsolicited, with a test firmware that fixed my problem? Incredible, IMO.

Really impressive. Sad to see they are getting out of the business.

I have every reason to believe OPPO is still working hard with Dolby on this.

You may also want to check out Roon Audio setup, as the Oppo players are Roon endpoints and the user interface experience is much better (if you have something like a tablet around). Roon also supports importing directly from iTunes (I've not tried this personally).

I'm intrigued and I see there is a trial period with it. It's pricey after that, but might be what I'm looking for.

--Bob
I gave up on the UDP-203 as a DMR, I have a Mac Mini with Audirvana software (Media Server), that pushes nicely to my Muso, and my old Denon-3808CI and my OLED65E7P. But it only works one out of two times with the UDP-203.

I’ve tried all combinations of restarting my Mac, or the 203, but it only works after I reboot my router one time only. Then I am back to square one, a very bizarre situation and given my Media Server and router works with other home equipment, I believe the 203 DMR implementation is flaky. (I have network standby on as well DHCP reservation )

I was hoping to use the Oppo as a DMR to my Anthem MRX-720, but maybe time for a DAC.

Got my 203 last week & hooked it up this weekend. So far, I'm underwhelmed. Not that the sound or picture is bad, it just doesn't knock my socks off. I think I read too much about Oppo and my expectations were too high. I just expected it to be so much more of a "wow factor". I watched parts of a couple of Bluray Discs as well as some plain DVDs. Honestly, I think my old Panasonic DMP-BD60 outputting 1080p to my Sony XBRX900E had a better picture. Sound is comparable with CDs, maybe a bit better on Bluray on the Oppo.

Maybe I don't have things set properly. Was hoping for a better out of the box experience.

Are devices like HDMI swivel/angle connectors a detriment to the efficacy of certified premium high data rate cables? Does one of these at one end or both ends throw out the capability of the cable itself?

So, any chance you could pop in a DV disc and check whether they accidentally included the beta DV code that Dolby Labs is currently sitting on?

That's a definite "Maybe". ANY sort of adapter in the HDMI path can be a source of problems. And as far as I know, there's no such thing as a Premium Certified program for such adapters. So using them is a gamble.

UPDATE

The Oppo arrived today to my work address, "Outstanding" didn't want to take the chance the nobody was home, for the delivery........Can't wait to get home tonight and setup this bad boy with my Home Theater.
Question? should I be running the latest Firmware update (thru Wifi?) immediately after plug in? OR do you download the latest firmware and install with the use of a USB stick? (like I did recently for my Pioneer Elite SC-95) OR do I disregard the firmware for the time being.

Thanks again AVS

You can do it either way. Details are at OPPO's web page and in the manual.

I would definitely update to the latest.

That's what I figured. My current display has the HDMI inputs such that straight attachment tends to expose the cable from the side of the display in a way that can be seen by the viewer so I used one of those adapters. I'm trying to plan ahead and get the cables I need for when I get my 4K display in the next few months and was curious about those adapters. Thanks!

No dice, at least not on my Sony 940E...... shame on Sony for such a crappy implementation.

I'm sure this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but I am late to the game, and still a thread novice and skeptical of my ability to get good advice in a search.
I am set up with one HDMI out going to my avr (see signature). What do I buy if I go dual HDMI? Assuming I make a direct connection to my Kuro? The Kuro is 720P, I have my Roku 3 plugged into the 203's HDMI In. I Mostly watch Blu-ray movies, with the occasional DVD or multi-channel disc on Pure Audio.
Is the expectation "cleaner"/"better" video?
Thanks
