Lightbulb Workaround found! Non-catalogued Blu-Ray cannot be played due to region mismatch

Hello,

I previously posted about the problem with Region B Blu-ray discs that are not recognized (not catalogued by Kaleidescape). Some of these discs would not play when pressing "Play Disc" and I ended up with a message that the Blue Ray region does not match, although I have both Region A and Region B players in the system.

Today I realized that this problem (of course!) only happens on my Region A player and the movie plays fine on the Region B player!

With this in mind, I started the movie on the Region B player and paused it. After this, I can resume it on my Region A player and all is good...

A good workaround for a frustrating issue.

Thumbs up

Wow - very clever workaround.
Let's hope it's not a loophole that Kaleidescape now has to go back and fix now that it's out there.

The loophole is the "Play Movie" feature that lets us skip all the pesky checks and code in the intro/trailer section. I doubt very much that K-scape would remove this feature.

The problem is that "Play Movie" does not exist for non-catalogued discs, which caused quite a bit of frustration until I figured out this workaround
