I definitely use Source Direct because I don't like the other options, they blur the picture, make it somehow "greasy and soapy". the TV does better than the 9201 in upscaling. I will check when I go home if the Picture Adjustment function will appear when I switch to auto. Thanks for the idea!
Ad1. I own M9201 for a few days and have been testing it, and the short answer is no. I think we will need to wait for a firware update (if they are going to release any in the future)1. Is there a way to get Dolby Vision .mkv to work?
2. Does the player also support BD-lite menu, i.e. to select the film directly without having to go into the Disc menu?
you can always rewrite each BD with DVDfab, leave the audio you are interested in alone, add subtitles and save DV. I don't understand why you want to play mkv so much ....Ad1.

However, I've heard Shield 2019 PRO will play .mkv with Dolby Vision, so maybe you should consider buying one.
Getting back on .mkv with DV on chinoopos - personally I own Shield 2017 and when I connect the Shield to M9201 HDMI IN, it detects HDR10 (I use Kodi 19.x "Matrix" - Alpha 2), so maybe Shield 2019 PRO would be able do passthrough DV as well. Can anyone confirm it?
For now I would stick only with .ISOs or full blu-ray folders containting DV content for Chinoppos
What I've done, and it's worked pretty well for years, is to create a new user(since I use an Oppo I called the new user "oppo") on the Windows machine that has the folder you want the player to access. Then set the sharing properties to allow the player to access the folder. Once you enter the user name and a password, I use "1, 2, 3, 4", you shouldn't have to enter it again.The player sees both the computer and the router via SMB. On my computer I have free access to everything, but it still asks for a password and login. The player does not accept the password and login from the router. What could be the problem.
The player implements a 'light' SMB client so to say.The player sees both the computer and the router via SMB. On my computer I have free access to everything, but it still asks for a password and login. The player does not accept the password and login from the router. What could be the problem.
It is a known bug from Oppo and, consequently, its clones with the same player firmware.I received my 9201.
My AV receiver is the Yamaha rx v685.
Quite often while testing and switching betwern various movies and sound formats, there was no sound output for some reason (bitstream).
After a restart and first played, the films ran with correctly sound without any problems.
Any ideas why this is so?
Thanks a lot @rpelayo for your answer.It is a known bug from Oppo and, consequently, its clones with the same player firmware.
Some say that changing from DTS-HD MA to PCM and viceversa, if available on some Blurays, does correct the problem.
After changing and playing many formats I have had also problems like "Video not supported format", and ISO refusing to play the menu, that I Did know that work well with Chinoppo.
For me, only the restart solves those problems.
It is normal and you have to live with it
¡Pues no era problema del Chinoppo! Al final como también me pasaba con el Bluray Panasonic andaba ya muy mosqueado y he hecho mil pruebas.No, no es eso.
Tengo el chinoppo conectado con 2 cables HDMI. El HDMI1 va conectado a la tele. El HDMI2 va conectado al amplificador.
Si alguien lo tiene así, ¿Oye algo en la tele por el HDMI1 o el sonido SOLO sale por el HDMI2?
Y si no oye nada en la tele, ¿Esto ocurre siempre o solo cuando el ampli está encendido?
