Hello, i hope this hasn't been discussed already but i have a question pertaining to the Blue Ray player in the PS3 80 gig.. My wife and i treated ourselves to a PS3 this past Christmas. With it we bought a couple blu ray moves and the bluetooth Sony remote. We sat down and started watching the latest Pirates of the Carribean movie. In case some havent seen it, its a pretty long flick. So halfway through my wife gets up to make some popcorn, i press stop on the new bluetooth remote. When she returned we went to start it up again and it started at the beginning of the disc from the previews on. I had to once again start the move, and advance it track by track to get to the scene we were at.
Is there NO resume on the PS3 blu ray player? Am i doing something wrong? Again, i apologize if this has been covered in some other thread.
The "Resume" feature when you press stop is something that is common on many SD DVD players. It allows you to pause the movie at certain spot with the screen blank, so you can leave it for awhile and not worry about screen burn-in. When you press play, the movie continues where you left off. It's a little redundant now since many players have screen savers anyway when you leave it on "Pause" for a long time.
Some of my BD movies have that feature. Others don't.
I have been noticing this as well. Most of my older movies will resume, but, any of the new discs that I have bought recently, do not. It seems that discs that have picture icons (as opposed to the normal blue disc icon) in the PS3's XMB probably won't resume.
It is also worth mentioning, that you must press the "Play" button on the remote to resume your movie. If you press the "Select" button (which is what I usually do) it simply starts the disc from the beginning. And once you eject the disc, all resume info is gone.
Thanks to all that responded. I guess i'll be getting alot more use out of my pause button in the future. I do hope they decide to fix this little issue, i sincerely feel the auto resume is a nice feature. Especially if you are watching some seriously long movies like LOTR.
That's interesting. Maybe it has to do with the player, then? I have a Sony BDP-S300 and when I press stop during the movie, the on-screen display will either say "Resume On" or "Resume Off" depending on which particular movie I'm watching. For me it's consistent with the movie.
Here's something interesting relating to this thread.
Last night for laughs i loaded Spider-Man 3 (BD) into my PS3. I watched the first fifteen minutes of it. I hit the STOP button on the Bluetooth remote. After it stopped i hit the PLAY button on the remote and was taken back to the beginning of the DVD from the previews on.
Then i thought.. why don't i try the same thing with the included Bonus DVD with all the special features and what not on it. I did the exact same thing.. I watched the first 15 mins and hit STOP on the remote. Immediately i hit PLAY. This time the DVD resumed right where i left off and it worked perfectly.
In conclusion, i must agree with Stargazer. It seems only certain BD movies support RESUME on stop. I only own a few BD movies. I will try it on the latest Harry Potter movie when i get a chance.
