    Oppo Digital is saying goodbye! See John Archer's story here:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnarcher/2018/04/02/oppo-shock-popular-av-brand-announces-that-its-time-to-say-goodbye/#3d31d0ff3acc

    Oppo is saying it will still offer firmware updates from "time to time" but that's not very confidence inspiring.

    Recent Sony TV owners with the low-latency Dolby Vision firmware update may be out of luck if they own the Oppo 4K player. Without that Oppo firmware update, no Dolby Vision on your Sony TV.

    This is REALLY unexpected news. Yikes!

    I don't see it. I just checked again and I don't see any thread about Oppo shutting down and the Oppo thread pinned at the top of the forum hasn't been updated since January.

    ?????

    You appear to be blocked, from the OP I suppose. Who did you piss off? :drum:

    It’s even in the similar threads section below. Right at the top.
