    So I've had my Oppo-203 for about 6 months now. I've never really had any issues with it.

    A little while ago when I bought my first Dolby Vision 4K Blu-Ray it was great, the movie looked good on my OLED, but there was one problem.
    Whenever I go for a break and the screensaver appears it presents a grey-ish black in the background. This only happens with DV discs. I've never had this problem with any HDR10 disc which display in perfect OLED black along with the OPPO logo floating around nicely.

    Anyone else had this issue?

    May be your Oled. What is it? and is the firmware up to date?

    I have a LG B7 Oled. I double checked and the firmware has always had auto-update on.

    What about your Oppo firmware?

    Do you have any other signs of greyish black either in a DV movie or with the black bars with DV 2.35:1 movies?
    What about credits at the end of DV movies, is the screen black?
    What is your Oled brightness set at? and what viewing mode are you using?.

    Oppo firmware is all up to date. The issue is never present when watching any DV film, either with the black bars or during credits. Perfect inky blacks throughout. My Oled brightness is set to 100 to fit my room. I always use Cinema mode with custom settings.

    One thing I noticed was that the when the Oled detects the Dolby Vision signal it locks the picture settings completely. Is that normal? This doesn't happen with HDR10 signals.

    Yes

    B7 Brightness shouldn't be 100, default is 50. I have mine at 50 or 49 for Dolby Vision. Going higher destroys blacks on my Oled. Were you meaning Oled light?

    As the greyish blacks only appear on the screen saver I wouldn't bother about it unless you put the screen saver on so just you can watch it... ;)
