stop function

by rockyroads61 / January 14, 2009 8:24 AM PST


I have a bp1500 running firmware ver. 2.1

Why doesn't the stop function work as described in the owners manual?
I hit it once and the player does not remember where I left off and returns to the beginning of the disc----very frustrating!

This only happens with blu ray discs---not normal dvds which work fine.

Why? and if it is the nature of the blu ray disc---again---why hasn't the industry figured how to make it work right OR at least mention it in the owners manual!

thx and peace

Unfortunately, this issue is a Blu-Ray Java limitation.

Discs tha are encoded with Blu-Ray Java technology can't be resumed. The best way to stop the movie and come back to it would be to use the pause feature.

Java does come with benefits, such as interactive menus, splash screens and some extras. However, this is one side effect that we can't control.

I wish I had a solution, but I at least wanted to address why this is happening.

thx for your quick reply.

so---this is not player related----all players react the same?

why doesn't the owners manual show this as an exception when it explains the stop function?

in your opinion---why are the blue ray creators/studios allowed to circumvent such a basic function w/o a fix? it is bad enough that digital discs prevent me from fast forwarding through warning and certain advertisements like analog (VCRs) ALWAYS did---now----they circumvent basic fuctions. why?

Unfortunaely, the evolution of the player is a result of those changes. Out of the box with the original shipped firmware at the time of printing, my understanding is that it worked.

The firmware update would later add more Java functionality in order to play specific titles. That required update knocked out the stop button functionality from remembering the last place.

It's difficult to compare analog VCRs to digital Blu-Ray discs. We're talking about two different formats.

Our players won't circumvent and bypass locked content (FBI warnings, or even ads if they choose) that the studio places skip restrictions on, due to the DMCA Act of 1998. The studios lock that content, and our players have to honor those rules.

Simply put, that's the rules, and we have to follow them.
