    If you can't find what has to be changed in the HDR set-up, I can go read up tomorrow at that site and see what they say will work to force HDR10.

    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.

    Why would we want to stop Dolby Vision from working when it is supposed to be better than HDR10?

    I wouldn't, but that's not the issue at hand. The question on the table is if it's possible to force HDR10 if DV is the default. I'll look this morning for the answer.

    You can just set it to HDR10 instead of auto. Set player to not be on fast boot, and power off. Once you turn on and it is set to HDR10 will avoid DV on the disc.

    Why would someone do that? Well, because when HDR10 sets first launched you couldn't calibrate them, same with DV. Only a few people even know how to calibrate the LG's in DV mode now, and some haven't been successful. If you have a display that is pro calibrated in HDR10 mode, you should not be forced to watch the DV version because Dolby thinks they own your shit.

    "Better" is relative.

    Here's what I found copied from a post from someone who has a 203:

    The workaround is to use the "HDR FORCED trick" to have the OPPO play the disc as HDR-10 instead of Dolby Vision:

    1) Set HDR FORCED

    2) Set Standby Mode ENERGY EFFICIENT.

    3) Turn the player Off and back On again.

    4) Play the disc.

    To return to normal, set HDR AUTO and power cycle the player again.

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

    As soon as I get working again the plan is to upgrade my receiver then upgrade my surrounds to match my B&W center channel then I will be looking at a Oppo 4K blu-ray player to upgrade my Samsung 4K blu-ray player.
