    Does the generally standard 30 day no questions asked return policy not apply to your LG UP970 device?

    I'm in a similar position, just not quite as brave as you! :cheers: To make matters worse, I'm also salivating over the JVC D-ILA 540 after Sam's purchase a couple of months ago. i don't know that there are enough flowers in any bouquet to pull off both. Decisions...

    Sadly, no. Plus, my wife decided to throw away most of the packing material, so I'm just going to blame her. Yeah. That's it. It's her fault I had to buy the OPPO.

    Congrats on your player!

    Though I am pretty certain at this point I will never be getting into 4k, I am glad I bought their player months before manufacturing was slated to cease.

    My 10 month old OPPO 203 has audio sync issues . I've adjusted and re-adjusted the audio sync levels a number of times with no success. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know how to overcome it ?

    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.

    Who are the flowers for? Your wife or for the memorial service?
    Just remember, Brian, if every cloud has its silver lining then wouldn't it stand to reason that every OPPO has its Opportunity, as well?

    I'm lucky to have a UDP-203 and a 205. Both are excellent, and I'll hang onto them as long as I can.

    Yesterday, I finally got off my lazy butt and hooked up my second Oppo 203 in my Bedroom as a replacement for my Oppo 93. I reconfigure my Bedroom HT deleting a Panny BD that I had hooked up too and replaced all of my HDMI cables.

    As an update, my player was due to be delivered yesterday, but they attempted delivery at 12:45. Needless to say that at that time all members of the household were either at work or in school. I complained to my wife that I was having a difficult time trying to reschedule delivery of a package and she asked me what I was expecting.

    *GULP*

    I tried to play it off as no big deal. "Oh, just another piece of equipment I'd ordered." She said, "OK." Now, she doesn't really know how much was spent on this "another piece of equipment," and I'm of the opinion that what she doesn't know won't hurt her. It was paid for out of unexpected extra money that came my way, so I didn't have to forego food or mortgage payment or anything. lol.

    In any case, I signed the door tag that FedEx left yesterday and am hoping that none of the rapidly-growing number of heroin addicts in my area don't get to it before the kids get home from school and can take it in.

    Suddenly getting visions of the ending of "The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre" adjusted for heroin addicts and an Oppo :)

    Congrats in anticipation of it arriving safely in your warm hands!

    Your wife and mine sound related. :cheers: I literally just had practically the same exchange. This time it was a motorcycle jacket, so a little less than the OPPO 203 which I do eventually want.

    SOCal I presume?:wacko:

    It's Sunday. We haven't heard from Brian Kidd since his 8:20 AM post of Friday.
    Should someone from one of our HTF precincts be sent out to investigate?:D

    I'm alive! lol

    The player showed up on Friday. Aside from a moment where I accidentally connected the wrong HDMI cables, it works like a dream. I got in the external mod I ordered on Saturday, so I can finally relax and enjoy the sweet, sweet functionality of the UDP-203.

    My wife seems okay with it. At least divorce hasn't been spoken aloud and I haven't received any calls or letters from lawyers.
