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.
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
