Yes Bbar, movie is playing fine then player stops as PC has shut down hence no signal. Its not related to the time or position within a movie playing. The PC just shuts down completely no warnings no blue screen etc, just re-starts like after any other shut down and can run for weeks without doing it again unless I use it to stream to the 203.

new PSU in the PC has fixed this issue I'm pleased to report, streamed 3 movies last night without fail. :rolleyes:

What's your thoughts in using the 203 or 205 as a prepro as im planning to sell my av and run 203 straight to a 7 channel power amp.. what iv seen its more and capable and doing it with ease..

correct me if you use the 203 or 205 via HDMI straight to a av, will you be using the av dac and video processor?

If using the player direct to a power amp you will be using its DAC for audio and video processor for picture (the display will still use its own video processing).

If the 203/205 are the same as previous Oppo models, every time you update the firmware the volume control reverts back to fixed full volume - you need to manually change it back to variable volume to avoid speaker/amp damage.

I did try the unit on the weekend (203) on my 7 channel amp and set the setting to variable and the sound was amazing im no audiophilist but it sounded very good. I only hooked up as a 2 channel and was amazed how it sounded.. after that I went thru the menu and it was so easy to use and has all the main setting a av would have eg Hz adjustment, speaker size, distance etc.

Question.. does it do Atmos? and if I did hook up all 7 channels by using the analogue outs straight to my power amp will it still do Master Audio, Dolby etc etc

 no middle man

No, you'll need an AVR or processor to decode Atmos.

Only the lossless codecs and no atmos ;dts-x as Quark said .  Don't underestimate how important good room eq is ; most rooms need some correction especially in the bass frequencies ; good room treatments with bass traps and diffusors can help .

Other than that get a subwoofer that has a built in PEQ or auto room eq that can smooth out any peaks and dips in your rooms frequency response :) The bottom frequencies are the most important . Another option for room eq is a mini dsp unit with  dirac [if you want the best just put it between your 203/5 and power amp albeit with extra a/d d/a conversions] 

A few members have tried this and its popular at avs forum for those who  want something better than say ypao ;)

Right!!

I got our Oppo 203 Today and I would like to ask a few Questions.

1/ TARGET LUMINANCE= It says on the Oppo to have it matched to your TV so I do not know how many nits (not hair nits ) the LG 86SJ957T has. Default as you know on the Oppo is 300 nits. And feed back on this

2/ COLOR SPACE= I have it set to Auto. What do you think?

3/ COLOR DEPTH= I have it set to Auto. What do you think?

In General the Oppo UDP 203 is Different as when I put "DISPICABLE ME" into it the first 4K Dolby Vision movie I have I've notice ALL the Dolby Vision Picture Modes the 5 off them all have the Back light set as 50% and "Despicable me" is reasonably bright on all modes. Also on DV the using of Dynamic Contrast contradicts what I do in the Panasonic where the Picture LOOKS GOOD!! with medium or High Dynamic Contrast but Dolby Vision on the Oppo 203 looks slightly better when its OFF or maybe LOW.

I had a quick play this afternoon and me thinks the Oppo is not as Sharp as the Panasonic 900. I will try to use there Sharpining tool to see if it helps Remember the BIGGER the TV its more noticeable when a picture is not as sharp.

Welcome to the club Blackman.

1/ TARGET LUMINANCE: with your TV this should not need adjustment.  Set HDR to AUTO.  You only need to adjust the luminance if you select an option that converts HDR to SDR or strips the metadata.  Your panel processes HDR out of the box so this is not an issue for you.

2/ COLOUR SPACE (with apologies for Australian spelling) really comes down to personal preference.  There are gazillions of links about this on the internet, personally I like this one from one of the Oppo beta testers over on AVS Forum.  What do these ycbcr color spaces mean.  Personally I use 4:4:4 but I suspect most people use Auto.

3/ COLOUR DEPTH also comes down to personal preference.  Selecting Auto means that the TV will tell your Oppo what colour depth it wants and the Oppo will pass what the TV wants which is probably a very good place to start.  Your TV is native 10 bit so some would say it makes sense to feed it 10 bit as well.  And yet again, some people swear blind that feeding 12 bits and letting the TV 'down convert' to 10 bits gives them a better image.

If some of that is confusing sorry.  In a nutshell, you can ignore target luminance and yes Auto is fine for 2 and 3.  Watch a few discs using Auto and if you're happy leave it be.  If you like to fiddle around with your settings you can do that too.  Of course it's often a good idea to use the Settings Management function under Device setup.  This allows you to save your settings to USB and then play around with the settings to your hearts content.  If you stuff it up, simply restore from USB and start again :-)

And on a separate note, make sure you update to the latest firmware.

Cheers and good luck

      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.
