Won't play Lionsgate movies

Everytime I put in a movie made by Lions gate it will play the previews but when it gets to the movie all I get is a blank screen with a red circle with a line through it in the top right corner of the screen

    my phillips dvd players won't play lionsgate movies either. I have tried two different machines with no luck.

    We've had the same problem with lionsgate movies not loading in our dvd player's. We actually got Saw V to load but it glitches about 5 minutes into the movie. Now we are having problems with our older dvd's playing without glitching and we've never had problems with them before.

Had a decent chat with this user regarding this issue, and the issue most likely is the cable pvr box wired between his DVD player and TV complying with some stringent Macrovision protection resident in Lionsgate DVDs. I've advised this user to bypass the cable pvr box to eliminate is as the possible culprit, but he did not set it up and is not ready to take a chance getting into it. Hopefully he has a friend or family member that the info can be passed on to and they can see if the pvr box is the issue.

    Any chance you could know off the top of your head whats wrong with my mom's? Heres the issue, totally centered around Lionsgate movies, my sis and family were watching a lionsgate disc in this dvd player and the baby got the remote and pressed the powerbutton turning it off in the middle of the movie. Now no lionsgate movie will play properly. It keeps asking to resume playback regardless of which disc it is and never actually plays. Any ideas, mom wants to unplug it to reset its settings but I don't know if there is a cmos chip in there similar to desktop towers and whether or not it has a constant source of power to retain settings, or whether or not it even loses its setting without power like ram does. You can email me at goldribbons4septchildren@gmail.com or solacefiend@gmail.com if thats easier for you, those are my two emails. :)

Most likely a software conflict, contact the mnfg of your dvd player and get a download or patch to upgrade your software. This is done by inserting a dvd with the patch and following the online instructions.

Do you have a parental lock activated on the dvd player? Is the movie rated R? Look at the lions gate movies, to they have a PG13 or R rating. If so, check the parental lock setting on the DVD player.
