    I noticed a problem when playing special features on MGM discs using either a Panasonic RV32K or Toshiba SB1800 player. The elapsed time and time remaining will not display; I get -- -- -- on the front panel and on the
    OSD. This does not happen on non-MGM discs!

    It only happens when playing special features such as trailers or featurettes, not the movie itself.

    The Mintek 2580 displays the time and time remaining, so I know the data is on the disc.

    Has anyone else encountered this?

    My Toshiba player sometimes won't display timecode during the 'extras'...I've never took a mental note on which discs, but I have noticed a few. My player also won't show time code on DVD-R's I burned (they show up on my parents Samsung player).
