Just curious about movies that have multiple angles present. 2 movies that I have (burned -R's) show a little camera icon up in the top right corner for a while (one for a whole chapter). If you hit the angle button on the remote, it changes from 1/2 to 2/2 but it will not go away. Is this normal for movies with multiple angles? Is there any way to turn it off????

thanks.

To turn it off, your DVD player would have to allow all On Screen Display to be turned off. Check your doccumentation.

All of the players I've owned indicate angle available on the front panel, not on the OSD, so it may be an OSD function. Check your menus to see if there is a way to turn off the angle indicator.

What player we are talking about may help...

It's usually in the setup menu as "Angle Mark" or "Angle Indicator". My cheapo players are a bit annoying as when you turn this off, there's no other way to tell if you've got a disc with multiple angles, but if you turn the display on it will stay on all the time.

It is a Phillips DVP642.

I have checked the documentation and menus and thus far cannot figure out a way to turn that function off.

No way to turn off the On Screen display on that one?

I have a very similar Philips player, I'm not using anymore, but it is still hooked up. I will check it out, and post back tomorrow morning on it.
