Watching our newly acquired Ice Age Continental Drift Blu Ray last night, we kept getting this annoying movie camera looking icon that would randomly appear for a few seconds in the upper right corner. From my research it appears this is something to do with multiple camera angles. However, I can find no mention of multiple camera angles as a feature on this Blu Ray, and there are no options for this in the movie's menu options. I then went into the LG Blu Ray player and TV options, and could find no such options to disable this icon either. I did find the multiple angle selection in one of the menus, however. At the end of the movie just as the credits were starting to roll, I paused the movie when the icon appeared, and went into the options menu. I noticed that in previous scenes the angle option was showing 1/1. But when the icon would appear it would show 1/2. If I pressed the #2 button on the remote it would change to a 2/2 in the menu option, but nothing changed on the picture in the movie. I contacted LG Chat Support, and they were not much help at their lowest tier level of support. She said she was going to escalate it to further tier support and they would get back with me. I just wanted to see if anyone on here has dealt with this same issue, and if there was anything that could be done about it.
We have watched a decent amount of Blu Ray movies with this player, and this is the first movie we have ever seen this problem.
This is the way LG handles multiple camera angles or any other special features that have multiple video streams that are synced. The Blu-ray.com review mentions a feature that I would assume is causing this:
"Party with a Pirate Mode: Turn on this overlay mode and Aziz Ansari's rabbit character, Squint, occasionally pops up on screen to deliver a pithy remark, like "Ah yeah, pirate dance party!" or "Hang ten!" It's rather pointless. "
Unfortunately, to my knowledge there is nothing you can do to prevent the icons from showing when a disc is authored in this way.
