    ah huh,,, still the auto play disc feature...
    i just wonder ... as for me, i will finish a movie at a time, wont stop it in the middle of play...
    but if i stop watching it in the middle, i wud like to continue with where i hv stopped last time (so the feature is called power resume or the playback resume)... i do think it s nice...

    i think if it let you select playing something else, say on the usb, this resume playback feature will be lost...

    i just think this is different in the "user behaviour".... i'd like to know how others use the player as well...

    hmmmm, maybe for playing a CD, it s good to have the feature you suggested!

    Hi,

    it's another problem, what's indicated with that poll.

    Imagine the following scenario: One watches fully a movie and the player goes into standby after a while (or one pressed the standby button). Now one will eject the disc or just want to start Net TV the next time, one need to wait until the player loaded the movie (and the BDP plays the movie automatically). Only after that, one can eject the disc. That is very time consuming and often frustrating.

    The BDP can remember the position, if I want to complete an uncompleted movie session. We don't have a problem with that.

    The proposal is, that the BDP does not start the disc automatically. That could be an OPTION.

    @kwinnie
    You understand what we want?

    Hi toengel,
    Yes I understand what you want... Not auto playing the disc...
    And I think that makes sense...

    What I m talking about is I usually finish a disc at a time ... So even if I hv to stop in the middle of play, I wish to continue watching the rest of the movie next time I switch on my device...

    So auto load disc is ok for me...but just my own user habit, not necessarily the others' habits
    Just ussage/ scenarios are different...

    Still think what u guys suggest is valid like what I hv voted

    I think it would be nice if on the homescreen there's a button "resume disk".

    So after startup -> show home screen -> choose what to do (play or resume disk / open net TV / open USB / open network).

    Or maybe also a resume on USB / DLNA... but that would be too user friendly i guess

    Toengel, I’m not sure if this is what you meant, but my player (BDP2850) ejects the disc without delay if I hit the eject-button without pushing the power-button first.

    My player automatically plays the disc and remembers the correct position. I have also noticed that if I push “close” and hit standby-button immediately after that, the tray closes and the player returns to standby-mode without auto-playing the disc.

    So I like auto play, but only if it has exceptions like that.

    However, I think that the “waiting-period”, which comes after opening the tray is just stupid. I understand that blu-ray player is a complicated machine which needs some time to boot-up, but despite that the tray is operated by a simple motor. Why on earth do have do I have to wait for the player to became fully functional until I can close the tray again?

    If someone from the Philips is reading this, please tell me if this is a bug or a feature.

    The problem is that when you want to use a feature different from watching a disk (I don't know the features on the 2850) you have to wait until
    1. the player has booted
    2. when a disk is present, this gets loaded
    3. and finally after pressing stop return to the home screen of the player

    So the whole disk startup could be avoided, it could save up to 40 seconds I guess...

    BDP2850 can play video files from the USB-stick, but I haven’t tested that feature yet. It’s very annoying if it behaves the way you described. It would be best if there was a possibility to choose whether auto play is enabled or not.

    @JuMe, exactly. And Toengel pointed out in another thread this startup procedure is the same for all the models... (I got the 5180), I think it's strange there aren't more complaints about this.
