Onscreen angle icon cannot be disabled during layback of disc

There is an anle icon that displays in the top right hand corner of the screen during playback, which is distracting and annoying - one can toggle between the different angles, but not get rid of it say Philips. this is a high definition 10.2 screen which is fantastic and then Philips screw it up with this stupid icon. Is there any way I can get into the machine to disable this icon? I only want to view the films.

    same problem exists - how do you fix it?

  • Anonymous May 24, 2008

    Had the same problem occur during playback with a Samsung DVD player. After exhausting every option (multiple times) within the onscreen menus, I decided to dig up the player's operating manual. As it turns out, removing the highly annoying angle icon was as simple as pressing the "cancel" button on the original equipment remote. Of course, it didn't help that I had been using an aftermarket Logitech universal remote which didn't have a "cancel" button. Hope this helps. Best of luck!

    Bought new Star Trek Season 1 BluRay Discs. Angle icon appears everytime the option exists to watch the original graphics or enhanced. Don't the marketing wiz-bangs realize that this "feature" does not appeal to everyone - especially someone interested in watching and paying attention to the episode!!! The menu presents the viewer with the option of watching the original or redo - WHY HAVE THE ICON POPPING UP EVERY FEW MINUTES? And the Philips player can't disable that? FUBAR!

After many long minutes of searching, I found the solution:

Depending upon your model of Pioneer player, you can switch this off in the Setup menus. Look for an entry about "Angle Indicator".

This worked for me. I had to stop the movie, go into the 'home menu' on my remote. Now I'm back to enoying Spirited Away without the annoying camera angle and blue line.

    There is a similar setting on my Toshiba player. Many thanks for the idea of where to look :)

From the MX Entertainment website - in case it helps

MX-featured DVDs have an exceptionally high degree of compatibility with DVD players, and are designed to provide high quality audio and video as well as cutting edge interactive features while being compliant with the DVD-Video specification. However, the DVD-Video specification is complex, and some players interpret it in unusual or incorrect ways. If you experience any of the issues below, check with the player manufacturer to see if a firmware update is available.

During programs with MX features, a camera/angle icon or menu appears over the video.
MX features are implemented using the multiangle capabilities of DVD-Video. Some player manufacturers force display of an indicator on screen when multiple angles are present. This is meant to be helpful, but can become annoying.

Most players which do this allow the indicator to be disabled via the player setup menu (look for a setting for Angle Mark) or by pressing Display, Exit, or Cancel when the angle icon is on screen.

How do I eject the Dvd


Press the eject button on the top right-hand of the keyboard. Be patient if the disc does not pop out immediately. Try pressing the button a few times or waiting a few seconds and then press the button again. If it doesn't eject, tilt the computer with the disc drive facing down and shake it gently as you press eject.[1]
2
Drag the disc icon into the trash. If the eject button isn't working, locate the disc icon on your computer's Desktop and drag it to the trash can. The trash can is located on the far right end of the Application Dock on the bottom of the computer screen.

3
Press and hold "Command" while simultaneously pressing "E."

4
Find the disc in the Finder. Open the Finder, located on the bottom left of the applications dock. Look on the left-hand side of the pop-up window under "Devices" for the name of the disc in your drive. Locate the eject button directly to the right of the disc name and click on it.
5
Eject the disc through an application if it is not in the Finder. In iTunes or DVD Player, click on the "Controls" drop-down menu located on the top toolbar and click "Eject Disc." You can also open iTunes and click on "Playlists" so that the left side bar pops up. Look for the CD icon with the appropriate name. Click the eject button directly to the left of the CD name.

Samsung BD-1600 region free code


I used it on my brand new Samsung BD-1600 today and it
worked on the first try using the code below.
My unit is a Region 2 (UK) machine.

1) Press the POWER button on the remote to turn on the
machine (no disc in the tray).

2) Wait till the player has booted up and the Samsung logo
screen is displayed.

3) Press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the remote twice, to open
then close the disc tray.

4) As soon as you see "No-Disc" displayed in the top left
corner, press the REPEAT button followed by the 5 digit code
for your current region as listed below.

(Mine was 57538 for region 2)

Don't press the REPEAT button for too long, just smoothly
press REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8.

If it doesn't work straight away, keep trying, mine worked
on the first go.

5) If you're successful, your current region code will be
displayed in the top left corner of the screen.

6) Press '9' to make your player region free.

7) Turn the player off, then on again and test with a
different region disc, or if you don't have one to test
with, just repeat the hack and instead of your old region
code appearing in the top left corner of your screen, you
should see '9' if you've been successful.

The hack can be repeated to turn your machine back to it's
original settings or to a particular region if the disc is
sensative to region free machines.

R1 - 29334
R2 - 57538
R3 - 56732

My Sharp Aquos blue ray player won't read all blue ray dvd's, why


You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.
