LOTR Extended edition UK cannot play

I have Denon DBT1713UD universal bluray player. Recently I bought this movie:
Lord of the rings two towers extended edition bluray UK edition

The movie cannot be played and there's a message "this disc cannot be played because the setup specificies different region code".

This is odd because I have a universal bluray player and I have played movies from UK (region B/2) without any problems. I usually play
bluray movies from US and Canada and I live in the US......

I also have set country code in the bluray setup to "United Kingdom", "France" but still no luck......

pls any feedback to fix this?

Isn't there a limit as to how many region switches you can make? Or is that only PC disc drives?

I do not think there is a limit...... it's called a universal bluray player. It can play any bluray from all around the world. I have movies from
US, Australia and UK. and this is the first time happened. I just played star wars rogue one UK region......

And it's a denon bluray player as I mentioned before and not a PC disc drive....

Try resetting the player and clearing the player's storage before putting the movie back in again when the setting is on UK.

According to this Denon players cannot play both A & B regions for blu-ray (the same with all blu-ray player manufacturers as far as I know) unless it is a Mod or you are using a hack which in both cases can be flaky:

The 'Universal' part has nothing whatsoever to do with being able to play software from other regions, but simply the number disc formats it handles, (Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs, SACDs, and DVD-A discs).

This disc is locked to Region B.

Problem solved.

Which is a region free disc. You've just been lucky up till now.
