    They are Mike, but Craig mentioned that he's in Canada and might have issues as a result.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Here's the response from Oppo regarding when new firmware with this fix included might be rolled out: At the moment, we can't say when the fix will be included in an official firmware as we just released a firmware not too long ago. Best Regards, Customer Service OT Service, Inc. 162...

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I was able to test the new firmware last night and the Dolby Vision problem I experienced has been resolved. No word from Oppo yet on when a public firmware update will be released.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    An update - Oppo has identified this as a problem and provided me with corrected firmware to test in my setup. I should be able to do that tonight and will let you all know if it's been fixed.

    Thanks for taking the time to check. I appreciate it! I've been contacted by Oppo support and will update the situation as new information becomes available.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Thanks Robert. So they looked fine with Dolby Vision set to both Auto and Player-led?

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Something like that. My problem is that it's malfunctioning when set to Auto, which is where I've had it since the feature was available and which I believe is the default setting. The only thing that's changed in my setup is the Oppo firmware. Thanks for checking!

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Here's what I'm seeing. Dolby Vision set to TV-led in the first pic (looks fine), and DV set to Auto or Player-led in the second. Bug report has been submitted to Oppo:

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I checked two discs Robert - 2001 and The Last Jedi. The problem is apparent from the get-go on the disc menus and continues when playing the feature.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Updated my 203 to the new firmware last night and it appears that Dolby Vision output is now broken. If I have DV set to Auto or Player-led, I get VERY off-color output that's terribly pixelated. If I have DV set to TV-led it looks fine. Time to file a bug report. Anyone else experienced this...

    Oh, I agree completely! My mind boggled in a positive way. ;)

    Future-proofing a player that's no longer in production. The mind boggles.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Looks like Oppo is releasing a firmware update for the UDP-203/205 that will give both players HDR10+ support, sometime in late December or early January: https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnarcher/2018/12/06/oppo-4k-blu-ray-players-to-get-surprise-new-feature/#2e45be666950

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I don't utilize the analog audio side of the 203 so it's a moot point for me. All audio is bitstreamed to my Yamaha RX-A2080 receiver via HDMI, and in that scenario audio from the Oppo and the Panasonic are identical. However, the 820 doesn't have the multichannel analog outputs that 203 has...

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I'm with you John. I thought that I might as well sell my 203 since I'm mostly using it for region free Blu-ray playback. Bought a cheap ($160) LG region free player, which looks remarkably good, and posted my 203 for sale on eBay. Within a day I had 24 people watching the auction and one guy...

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Have you updated it to the latest firmware? I know there were some sync issues early on with some devices, but they mostly took care of them.

    Thanks Matt. What a PITA. Hopefully Oppo will see fit to make it a simple menu selection in Video Options at some point.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    That wold be great Matt. I just went through all of the video-related settings on my Oppo and found nothing related to forcing HDR10 on Dolby Vision titles.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Interesting info Matt, thanks. I know that initially this ability wasn't available, but it's possible that a subsequent firmware update changed that. I'll have to dig through my setting tonight and see if I can find anything.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Yes, the UDP-203 will default to Dolby Vision if the disc is encoded with it, and there's no way to choose HDR10 instead. DV is what you get with a DV disc.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Something that Oppo does not permit its dealers to do AFAIK. The only way to get a price break on an Oppo is to buy used or buy refurbished.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Buying directly from Oppo is the best way to go IMO. Why get a middleman involved?

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Just an FYI, Oppo has released a new public beta firmware that adds 4K and 4K HDR capability to the HDMI input on the UDP-203: https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-udp-203/UDP203-firmware-50-0817B.aspx

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    As far as 4K uHD players go, the UDP-203 is (IMO) a best-in-class upscaler for 480i/p material. I've yet to find anything that beats it. The Sony UBP-X800 comes close, but the Oppo is still on the top of the heap.

    Yep, I have my URC programmed with a one-button press for all three Blu-Ray regions. Easy peasy.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Steve - Yes, the Blu-ray region change is sticky, so if you set the player to Region B you'll need to reset it to Region A when you're done. Also, I believe you're correct about DVD region functionality, but I've never used it so don't know for sure.
