^ Stupid Studio Programming Tricks....

The Yellow button is not magic. It simply goes to the largest Title. If the studio has deliberately authored the disc in bizarre fashion, strange things will happen.

Yea, Oppo says that's an attempt, but with weird encoding it's a crap shoot. The best bet is not to use the yellow button feature. You can skip individual previews with the chapter advance (when allowed), get to the main menu, and then the disc plays fine.

Working with Oppo, will report more later.
Thanks for pursuing that. I hadn't thought of the yellow button. Bob's right (of course!) that when you skip intro material the disc may get mad. I'd hoped the studios had stopped dicking with DVD authoring, but some departments never sleep.

No problem, it was driving me batty. A cheap maggie could play it but the oppo couldn't, of course, voila, no skip feature on the maggie!

You might consider an update to your faq pages and provide a warning. I've never run into this before so this must be a relatively new authoring technique, but the studios seem to constantly be dicking with the authoring, I'm guessing to attempt to beat the DVD copy programs.

On a postive note I do now own Nebraska. I went and bought a DVD during my investigation to make sure it wasn't just the netflix disc. The bought one did the same thing. So now I own a copy. That's not bad as it was a marvelous film. Dern deserved the Oscar for that one. I remember him as the guy who killed John Wayne! (Cowboys).

^I'm just wondering why you are renting and buying movies on DVD when they are available on Blu-ray and you have a great Blu-ray player to watch them on.
