Sorry for the confusing questions, but I'm not sure I understand the limitations in these newer machines.
BD Lite is the play the movie only mode. The A200 supports full BD menus, as does the Dune Smart series, which is why they don't need to use BD Lite. So yes, any new player (which will only support playback of BR Rips in folder or ISO via BD Lite) will suffer these problems. The workarounds will be:
a) Use Clown_BD to create a main movie rip. This will address the seamless branch issue but not the forced sub issue
b) Create an mkv. This should address both issues (as long as the player supports the forced subtitle flag in mkvs)
