Oppo releases HDR10+ update for its UHD Blu-Ray players

30 Dec 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Despite Oppo having abandoned the disc player market, the company has released a firmware update for its two UHD Blu-ray players, UDP-203 and UDP-205, that enables playback of HDR10+ discs.

HDR10+ for Oppo UHD Blu-ray

Oppo teased the update a while ago and it has now been released in public beta. The firmware carries version number UDP20X-64-1221B.

The firmware enables playback of HDR10+ UHD Blu-ray discs. The first two such discs are the ‘IMAX Enhanced’ A Beautiful Planet and Journey to the South Pacific. You also need a compatible HDR10+ TV such as a recent Samsung or Panasonic TV.

In addition, the new firmware enables a Dolby Vision “HDMI IN bypass” mode for the HDMI In port. It also includes various bug fixes, the company said.


Oppo UDP-203


Oppo surprised the market earlier this year by announcing that it is leaving the disc market. The company released only two UHD Blu-ray players but has pledged to continue support. This update is the latest example of the company’s commitment.

Panasonic and Pioneer have since launched high-end UHD Blu-ray players and - similar to Oppo - the two companies already offer or is planning to offer support for both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, in addition to the HDR10 base format.

The firmware has been released in public beta. It can be downloaded here and installed via USB or disc.

Firmware v. 20X-64-1221B - changelog

This release is for the OPPO UDP-20x 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc Player.
Comparing to the current Official release version UDP20X-60-0625, the major changes included in this version are:
- Added the HDR10+ support. A HDR10+ enabled TV is required to view content in HDR10+.
- Added the "HDMI IN BYPASS" mode for Dolby Vision passthrough via HDMI In.
- General fixes and disc compatibility improvements based on recent and upcoming UHD Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted samples
