The secondary hdmi is always covered by Sony because it defaults to audio. So that a customer doesn't connect it and complain they have no video. Same with their 4k player (now discontinued) along with the uhp1 I believe.

You're incorrect. The Sony will do DVD-A. Take a look at the rear panel (above and to the right of the L & R analog outs) of the of the UDP-X1000ES. There's DVD Video/Audio badging.

maybe it's actually the other way around? DV is DOA....

more than likely it seems more and more like DV will be just a streaming thing where as HDR 10 and it's eventual dynamic form will be more for physical media and streaming

Well, I have a Sony BD Player that isn't half bad at home, especially for the price and we've got a few Oppos where I work. Can't claim to be a fanboy, but I'll be waiting for the Oppo and I'll wait a while if needed. Pricey, but I'm impressed with what I've seen. Not sure why it'd get Oppo fanboys in a tizzy though. It'd be like Apple fanboys doing the same whenever Samsung releases a new Galaxy. Neither side really cares about the other!

From everything that I've heard, including from Oppo representatives, their aim is to maintain similar pricing structure to what they have now, lower end and higher end, or at least that's how I understood it. Not worried too much about streaming features since my Sony TV likely has all of that covered anyway.

Add great support, you have an excellent product.

See above comment.

Do you really think they are competing? Oppo seems to have its own niche and doesn't seem too interested in competing on an apples to apples level with any of the other brands. Though, if they keep a similar pricing and feature structure to what they have now, the only thing saving the other brands is just that - the niche market for Oppo. Where I work, almost nobody (except the actual AV guys) had even heard of Oppo.

The movies look stunning and I'm super happy. Much happier than I was with my gen 1 DVD, gen 1 HD-DVD, or gen 1 BD players which were all horrible players by comparison.

This isn't surprising since it's based off existing disc technology. It's not really even new format -- just an addition to an already existing format. I see it as more akin to the launch of blu-ray 3D than to the original launch of blu-ray back in 2006.

According to everything we now know - the new Oppo 203 will have Dolby Vision (certification is going on) and will be $499.
