any updates on the FW thst you guys have loaded.  It seems to me that @:) al is experiencing some issues in the avs 205 owners thread.

 

hi AM, yep they have done exactly as you have said few times... taken something working in an aspect. done a firmware update and broken it. 

 

yep when booting up now with pioneer kuro get a garbled menu screen flashing intermittently... cure put a disc in. or reboot the oppo. rebooting the marantz does nothing. alternatively if try with the jvc x7000 as display just get a black screen at boot up.

 

posted on avs...and got the response i expected...oh nothing changed...oh maybe its booting up sooner now. fault is with other gear that may not boot as fast. never mind have never had this issue with any disc player prior. ever ! not even wiht the oppo 205 or 203 before. 

 

in anycase I've already reported this interdyn locally already lets see what comes of that :)

 

I suspect yet again they have rushed things. not enough time between beta testing of the change vs the urge to get the official firmware out and be the first with dolby vision.

Mine boots up perfectly in 12.1seconds. 

 

good that it is, however you are neither passing through a hdcp 2.2 hdmi2.0a processor or using a display that is the same.

 

not that am not doing anything unusual and using probably one of the most popular combinations out there. I just cannot believe again oppo doesnt test this kind of thing out before jumping from beta to official. gees you pick this thing up on boot up ! its not like it needs extensive testing to find out ... I found out in a matter of seconds there is a problem. a problem that didnt exist prior to this update !

I haven't had time to do the fw update as yet so I might hold off for a bit, DV is going to do nothing for me atm as I have no DV display.

Do you still run direct to displays kazz ? In which case may not be a bother. There's no rolling back from this official either so maybe worth hanging back. I wasn't going to load a beta but their mention of some other tidy ups on the official firmware had me updating. But dv no value to me either !

 

Anyways let's see their response. .. If they start blaming other gear and cables and what not as in past then just case of same old same old. .

@:) al

 

next time a FW is released.  Stand back and wait for a few weeks to a month, b4 approving the update on your player.  Watch the forums for any issues and only do the  update if there are no reported issues.  

The other thing, only update if you want an issue corrected, if you're not experiencing any issues stay away from that desire to do it just to have it being the latest.

Does anybody have experience using the 205's USB input to decode multichannel files?

 

I have several multichannel PCM files, which eClassical give free with the 2-channel version, plus some DSD files as well. I'd love to know if the 205 can accept these and feed out multichannel from the analogue RCAs.

 

If it does similar to an Exasound e38, it's looking good to me.

yep might have to start doing that. I thought i was pretty safe avoiding the beta... but i guess their official updates need to be treated with as much caution ! :D

      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.
