OPPO’s New UDP-20X Firmware Unlocks Dolby Vision Support On Sony's Latest TVs
(July 2, 2018) OPPO Digital promised, now it’s delivering. This past weekend, the recently shuttered company gave its UDP-203/205 Sony TV customers a pre-July 4th treat by releasing a fairly significant firmware update.
The firmware (version UDP-20X-60-0625) is OPPO’s second UDP-203/205 series release since announcing its intention to cease manufacturing operations in early April. According to release notes, OPPO is issuing “general fixes and disc compatibility improvements” for proper playback of known future 4K UHD Blu-ray releases. But, more importantly, the firmware makes UDP-203 and UDP-205 players fully compatible with Sony 4K TVs equipped with an X1 Extreme chipset. In fact, OPPO’s players are now only two of a handful of external playback devices capable of delivering Dolby Vision content to X1 Extreme TVs.
In addition to Dolby Vision compatibility with Sony’s latest TVs, the firmware release is adding a “Dolby Vision” mode to the HDR settings menu, which will allow a player to automatically convert output to Dolby Vision when possible. Owners will also be able to control whether Dolby Vision processing is primarily handled by the player or by a television.
The 60-0625 firmware update also adds MQA support via the USB DAC on UPD-205 players.
OPPO says that owners running firmware version 42-0329 must install version 45-0605 before attempting this current firmware upgrade. Owners can perform all upgrades wirelessly via the Internet, or can download the BIN file and install it via a USB thumb drive or compact disc.
