It's not The Player, It's the BD
Bad news folks. The problem has nothing to do with the BD player. Surprising as it may seem, "resume" capability was not built into the official Blu-Ray disc specification. BDs with a few exceptions cannot be stopped and then restarted from where the viewer left off. The fact that BD uses the Java programming platform for all those special (and mostly unused) features has something to do with it. It is most annoying that a feature that was taken for granted on VHS, Laserdisc and DVD wasn't automatically seen as necessary for Blu-Ray.
