I have to do the same as you, turning on the TV, and access my 5.1 files on the NAS through the OPPO remote

There is an OPPO app, on the App Store, but I have not tried it recently

I contacted OPPO this morning and here is their reply

Hello,
 
The Remote Control App is not compatible with the UDP-203 or UDP-205.  For those players, you will need to use the MediaControl App for UDP-20X.  Per the provided firmware information, the player is on the latest official firmware.
 
Best Regards,

I just downloaded the OPPO Media Control App for UDP20X.

‘It works very well, using my iPad 

After following the instructions, which includes turning on the OPPO, opening the tray drawer, then pressing the stop button on the remote, it then connects, once you select your player.

‘Then everything attached to your network is available to control through the new OPPO Media Player App, including music, videos, and photos.

‘Thank s for starting this thread, nrwatson, as I did not know about this app.

Like you, I have a projector, so I'm doing all this in the dark. I revisited the Oppo app last night. I thought a lit screen would be advantageous. It turned out to be a bit clunky for me as my eyesight corrected is either good for near, or good for looking at the big screen, but not both. The tactile nature of the remote seemed to work a little better in the dark.

Paul, buddy! You had the 105D before it! Before I bought my 105D I read lots of reviews that talked about the app...buddy buddy buddy...technology is your blind spot.

Yes, I still have my OPPO 105, as well as the OPPO 203.

‘I downloaded the OPPO Media Control App 10X a few years ago, and it was very poor. Not well designed at all, and I just preferred using  the OPPO remote control.

The newer  OPPO Media Control App 20X is a completely different animal from the old app, and is well worth downloading if you have an OPPO 203 or 205

I suspect it will fulfill nrwatson’s needs?

I'm wondering why you would play music through the Oppo rather than just directly into and through the DSM. Seems that a Linn DSM would be a much better source than an Oppo player.

Linn streamers must be fed 5.1 as a PCM signal, otherwise they will not play surround.

‘The OPPO’s do the conversion to PCM, and then feeds the Linn

Not even with the surround module?
