reportedly street release date and price is different to actually having the unit to use in a system and enjoy. There were many rumours on the release date and was letting people know as i think most have been pre sold.

 

I enquired and bought a unit 20 minutes ago. My good friends at Tivoli HiFi.

which bit arent you having joy with pete. am working around the oppo's issues at the present :)

 

managed to get with the right color space setting, the oppo working across all disc forms ... without having to twiddle with the resolution settings all the time. thats a huge bonus.

oppo still have to fix the res of their main menu which pushes through at 17.8 Gbps (pretty much the limit of hdmi) which is plain silly and unnecessary for a menu ! sammy for instance only runs at 7.8 Gbps which his a lot more easy on hdmi cables and not anywhere near the limits.

 

i'll explore again the dual screens and legacy screen issue on the weekend not got over this initial hurdle of just having the mainmenu coming up :D

the sammy at this stage I have to say is a lot more seamless in use... bullet proof even....as crazy as this might seem.

That doesn't strike me as crazy. The Samsung UHD player is aimed at the cheap end of the price spectrum and Samsung would expect a relatively high volume of sales. The design and the testing for ease of use would need to be comprehensive with the player being intended for use by a broad range and number of customers. The Oppo product on the other hand is rather specialised in nature.

Still it does seem a very basic bug for the Oppo to refuse to deliver a picture at all! I'd have thought something in the menu would be available for it to be set up to play a UHD disc with reduced resolution for a Full HD TV. Surely there must be a way around this!

I get the same message that you get. Unless I use the audio HDMI to split the signal, and send the video signal directly to the TV..

What are the settings on your Marantz ? Thanks

as per my latest note above from wee hours, I have oppo main menu at 4k and one res setting across all disc forms. :)

 

I've got all three res settings also working for the oppo main menu it was a color space thing. oppo in their infernal wisdom have on Auto on color space it goes  to 4:2:2 color space which results in 17.8 Gbps a feather under the max possible over hdmi standard. Completely un necessary and will be a challenge for any cables over 7m. If change color space off Auto to 4:2:0 which is what the original format is on disc and still 4k 50 this pulls back to 13.4 Gbps which most cables should be capable off :)

 

So the 4.2.0 setting is on the Oppo @:) al ? And this also works on the Pio?

Have been out all day and have only just finally gotten through the posts on AVS, long slog as that thread is moving at a phenomenal pace.

First time I turned mine on it told me FW update was needed.  Do it now or later? I said now.  Gave me options to connect to Internet.  Connected.  Updated FW.

yes kazz under its setup menu, find Color Space. will find its on Auto setting change that to YCbCr 4:2:0 thats it only thing to change and will find can then leave on the Auto setting for Resolution and find can play all disc types through to the jvc without flipping through the resolution settings. the kuro I only briefly checked as was getting late. and really just to check if the oppo menu came up without any fiddling around which it did. havent check tried any dual displays or flicking on the fly between displays or anything since will leave that for another time. was happy enough got the menu up and working on auto res and being able to play all disc types without fiddles in between :)  ps by the looks jury still out on HDR stripping which is fine am happy to keep running with it here and not in a mad rush to give a go :)

It's a work in progress, but I have put up my thoughts here:

Forgive my ignorance Peter, but my impression was that Oppo Blu-ray players carried a premium price tag, right from their first Blu-ray player the BDP-83. I have never before seen it suggested "Oppo has been at the forefront of players which provide exceptional value for money,".  Have I got this all wrong?   Edit: I've seen reference to some competitively priced DVD Oppo players, as distinct from Blu-ray Oppo players. And I've seen some very expensive Oppo Blu-ray players that include Darby processing.

Muri maybe someone in Melbourne can come and set up your x7000 with a laptop loaded with the firmware Al has linked too in the past ; the bt2020 profile is essential afaik;)

Are you saying you have the Oppo menu showing at 4k resolution? @:) al and @Kazz have only had it display at 1080p from my understanding.

 

Have you run the firmware update yet?

Yes , menu at 4K no probs.. No i didn't update the firmware.....i usually dont update firmwares unless i have problem and no what's being changed.

 

Been doing alot of comparisons this arvo... Oppo against my Pioneer LX88. I thought the Oppo would be night and day,s difference better than the LX88 , but that most certainly isnt the case!

 

In the case of the film "Oblivion"   The LX88 upscaled to 4k kicks the proverbial out of the Oppo and Native 4K !!  I was shocked just how much better the LX88 and the upscaled Bluray was.

 

Will do some more comparisons with other titles, but i was expecting the Oppo and Native 4K to really stand out.....

 

HDR is a waste of time.....the JVC just has NOT got anywhere near enough brightness to make this viable!..

if dont do firmware upgrades I have to then ask is the JVC updated ? :D otherwise HDR will be a waste of time... though can understand at your screen size HDR would be a struggle :)

      Extra Details below and from the Loewe website: https://ww2.loewe.tv/au/bild/loewe-reference
       
      Loewe is acknowledged as a specialist manufacturer and this is their top television model, the Reference, in a 55” size model. It is hand made in Germany with features that are not found on standard sets.
       
      Effortless Perfection.
      The new Loewe Reference sets exceptionally high standards. An achievement made possible by a perfectly synchronised performance: A crystal-clear Ultra-HD picture combines with outstanding quality sound from Loewe's unique integrated soundbar. A timeless modernist design meets ultimate convenience, thanks to the integrated hard disk recorder and Bluetooth audio streaming.
       
      Ultra High Definition ... for the best picture.
      The UHD display is combined with Loewe's unique glass high contrast filter panel, delivering even richer colours and deeper blacks - for a truly special picture. For TV broadcast signals that do not yet meet the UHD standard Loewe's up-scaling algorithm converts from the currently available Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a seamless process ensuring visibly enhanced details and the clarity of Ultra HD 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
       
      Loewe 3D Active Shutter ... for even more depth.
      From outer space to jungles or oceans … Sometimes, you want to truly immerse yourself in the action unfolding on your screen. Loewe's 3D Active Shutter technology brings images alive with vibrant detail - and not just for 3D content. Algorithms work invisibly behind the scenes - calculating which picture content should appear at the front and back - to transform even 2D content into an impressive three-dimensional home cinema experience.
       
      High-resolution art ... with the LUMAS app.
      The new LUMAS Gallery app takes art into the digital dimension - and opens up new horizons. It allows you to enjoy selected works of art by internationally renowned artists - such as the Cuba series by the Stuttgart-based photographer Werner Pawlok - in high-resolution Ultra HD quality on your television screen. The LUMAS TV app is available on the new Loewe Reference TV home screen, so you can start selecting pictures straight away - using the Loewe remote control. Browse photographs, graphics, illustrations, digital art or paintings. When you find a picture that appeals, you can display it as a fixed image (for a maximum of 24 hours) or enjoy as part of a slide show.
       
      Quality Sound
      The Loewe Reference has a sound quality to rival even high-end hi-fi and home cinema systems: tangible bass, vivid middle, precise highs and an exceptionally wide dynamic range – the traditional hallmarks of Loewe Sound. The Loewe Reference sets particularly high standards. An integrated soundbar with eight speakers generates crystal-clear sound with a rich 120 watts of music output. In combination with the specially designed bass reflex box and integrated 5.1 audio decoder with Dolby Digital and DTS, the result is an impressive home cinema … and a perfect home concert hall. The Loewe Reference's cinema surround mode conveys amazingly authentic surround sound. At the touch of a button, it also allows you to switch between film and music mode. Special algorithms calculate the optimal overall sound setup for each situation: as powerful as possible while retaining sensitivity – ideal for cinema buffs and music fans.
       
      Loewe Mobile Recording ... any time, any place.
      You're stuck in traffic or can't get away from a meeting...you won't make it home in time for your favorite programme. You're out with friends...and you suddenly realise your weekly drama is about to start. The Loewe Reference takes the stress out of situations such as these. Loewe Mobile recording allows you to easily record programmes on the integrated Loewe DR+ 1 TB hard disk, even if you don't happen to be at home. Leaving you free to enjoy your favorite programmes at a more convenient time! All you need is a smartphone and an Internet connection. Simply open the new free Loewe Smart Assist app, select the program from the programme guide and press 'record'... Your Loewe TV will then take care of the rest. When you get back home, you can even watch your recorded programmes on your patio, or tucked up in bed using a tablet computer.
