    I'm not offloading/burning/ripping, etc the BD to the PC, I'm just playing the disc directly in my PC BDROM -- load disc, open player, click title 3 and it's automatic. I guess if ran the HDMI to the TV it would act like any other disc. I don't have the technical knowledge so I have no idea why the BD Player software can see it while the standalone players can't.

    OTOH, it makes little sense that this was intended to act like this otherwise why leave the overture on the disc at all.

    I guess the important thing is what the Disney Tech people say and I suspect everything at Disney is tied up in D23 adn Disney+ so who knows how long it will take before they say anything unless somebody with Disney Insider contacts can push it up the ladder quickly (Bill Hunt or one of the folks from this forum with contacts).

    If they say "we meant to do that" then I'm not sure what's left to do -- not buy it? Return the disc? play the Overture as an audio file or from the DVD, then start the Bluray at the credits? Forget it and watch the movie as is? 1st 2 aren't options in my book
    It certainly isn't a deal killer for me if they don't replace the the disc since more often than not I'd just start at Chapter 2 anyway after the initial play through, though I'd prefer to have it than not have it.

    This has to be an authoring error, as the information is on the disc. It wouldn't make sense for it to be there if it was never intended to be seen.

    The overture was on every UK release print, both 70mm and 35mm.

    Did anyone else get an unasked-for copy of Avengers Endgame today?

    I clearly declined this featured selection when the offer was made. This is the third time this year I've declined a title and been sent it anyway. I know DMC will take it back and refund me, that's not really my issue. My issue is, what's the point in going through the "declining the featured title" dance if they're just gonna do what they want and send it to me anyway?

    That's why I suddenly got out of the club over a year ago (before recently rejoining).

    They were sending me selections I knew I turned down.

    That's one of the reasons why I won't rejoined even if it saves me monies. Furthermore, after signing up for Disney+ for the next three years for a grand total of $140, I don't feel an urgent need to join it again.

    I don;t know why, but this seems to go in cycles and while most people never get one, it seems to hit certain people repetiively. Not once in 7-8 years for me and even so I still save my decline emails just for safety (wish I hadn't typed that now, but ....).

    I don't know if there is some setting in their software or certain addresses/account are more affected, but it's very strange. I can sort of understand it with brand new accounts esp the first cycle and during those 2 overlapping seasonal cycle, but after a while it's just odd that it doesn't seem random. I'd chat with one of their reps and try to get an IT to see if they can figure it out.

    I doubt this would do any good, but about a week after doing the online decline, I might call their automated FT line for a couple cycles and see if it says you have an active FT or not. If you are getting a phone message telling you you have a FT after you decline then there might be some evidence for the IT folks to trace a bug.

    I'll be interested in seeing if Ron starts getting them again with his new account. I seem to remember folks either starting or stopping this activity with a Cancel/Rejoin which makes even less sense to me.

    I don;t think I've read about differences in online cancel vs phone cancel though snail mail mailback has the highest failure.
    1st day, mid cycle, or last minute declines -- I don't recall this being an issue UNLESS you wait until that last Monday. I never always decline in the first 48 hrs.

    I guess I have been lucky the past 5 years as I have never been sent a title I declined.

    Same here as well. One time I either missed the e-mail for the title selection or neglected to decline it. I was amazed that they sent it anyway even though my card on file had expired.

    Going back to The Black Hole for a moment:

    The Disney Movie Club Facebook page (in comments) is including this message to anyone asking about the overture:

    "If you are experiencing problems with the overture, please contact our friends at Disney Consumer Relations at 800-723-4763 for further assistance.They are my experts and have this logged with solutions for you. Thank you! Priscilla"

    I'm just getting my feet under me from being gone for a week so I haven't called yet.

    Why don't they just POST the solutions they've come up with instead of forcing customers to make a phone call? Sheesh.

    I dunno. But that is the answer. The DMC has been super responsive on social media with this information when asked.

    The likely reason is there is no solution (and never will be). But customers don’t like hearing the truth, so they’ve provided an outlet where they can rant uncontrollably. Poor ‘Priscilla’ probably pissed off some VP, and has been reassigned to Disney’s version of Siberia.

    I complained to several Disney "Cast Members" (what a joke) about the negative option, which had been available for the DVD club, meaning that you could request no discs be send to you unsolicited once you had completed your enrollment. I do not understand why this can't be applied to Blu-rays. Just another scheme to garnish extra bucks with the hope that members would simply not bother to return their automatic shipments and decide to just keep what they were sent, maybe to sell them on eBay for a profit.
