    Can someone help me with this?

    I was watching a recently purchased Blu-ray disc of American Assassin this afternoon...when, at the 1:16:30 mark the sound muted on its own and an onscreen warning appeared:

    A rudimentary Google search reveals this is some kind of copy-protection that is to prevent people from playing ripped copies of movies.

    I don't know why this is showing up on my Oppo 203. While it WAS a used disc (purchased at a local shop)...everything about the disc and its package seems legit:

    I'm not sure what to do about this. Any ideas?

    I kinda want to see the end of the film.

    I can't seem to shake the issue. I tried the only things I could think of--cleaning the disc, waiting several minutes, etc.

    :angry: This qualifies as a real PITA.

    Mike,

    I played back my Blu-ray a couple of times and had no issues with my Oppo 203. If it's not a bootleg disc then it's definitely a defective one.

    I'm sure the shop has a return policy. Take it back ASAP.

    Thx, guys. I guess I'll have to haul it back to the store where I got it. Shouldn't be a problem as they had two or three other used copies sitting there.

    Mike's disc is a DVD, if that makes a difference, but shouldn't.

    Hell, I didn't even look at the picture closely as Mike stated Blu-ray.:blush: I don't have the DVD as I just pulled my BD from the 4K/UHD case.

    A DVD it is. And that's the disc that gave me the issue. The Blu is in the package. It was on the left-hand side of the case and I just pulled the disc from the right-hand side without thinking.

    Can I do a review which makes note that the video on the DVD looks pretty good?!? :oops:

    I'll pick up where I left off by viewing the Blu-ray tomorrow and see what happens (time permitting). :D

    Finished the film by watching the Blu-ray. It played fine.

    I've never seen anything like that Cinavia message before. A little unsettling. Made me feel guilty about something which I didn't do (except stupidly watch the DVD in a combo pack when I shoulda been watching the Blu-ray). :rolleyes:
