XBMC shows it as one movies, displays length for the entire movie, and it plays as if it were one file.
JRMC initially looked like it would work using their stacking feature. I stacked it and it appears as one movie. However the duration is wrong, as it is only for one disk. Initially it started playing on disk 2. Messing around with the disk tag may have fixed that, but I'm not really sure. Regardless, it doesn't work. Playing the movie only plays the disk it is on. Get to the end and there's no way to move on to the next disk.
This is not a show stopper, but it is something I think eventually needs to be addressed.
This should work is you; add to the file Tag Series=Cleopatra and Episode=1 for "...CD1.mts and Series=Cleopatra, and Episode=2 for "...CD2.m2ts. Since you are using media Sub type is Movie (instead of Televison) you won't mix up your Movies and TV, but your Movie will have two parts and you can select the one you want. You also get the "Play All" button when you have a Series. I think JRiver could do a better job on this - but for now it is a good workaround.
Playing of ISOs almost seamless. The info screen for ISO movies doesn't show the duration, an important bit of knowledge when you have a limited amount of time to watch and are looking for a movie that isn't too long.
If you go to Tools>Options>Theater View there is a setting called "Customize File Info Panel". This panel is the info you see whan you hover over, or select a movie/TV/Audio ect in the Theater View screen. You can add to the panel (such as Duration, Last Watched, MPPA rating, Date, File Type, etc.).
EDIT -- I just realized you are talking about ISO files not "IFO". Sorry. I don't use ISOs so I don't know what info shows or doesn't show. Maybe someone else can help on this question.
