    Hello Pete,
    I am getting a black screen and assuming I have a case of playlist obfuscation. The set is BBC Frozen Planet and Region 2. Purchased on USA Amazon and ASIN: B00ENLHD6G.

    Playlist obfuscation occurs while trying to play disks using PowerDVD 18 Ultra.

    I am using AnyDVD_8.2.4.4 and set to defaults.

    Thank You

    I'm pretty sure, there is no screen pass on those.
    (BTW: there have been reports of buggy pdvd18 versions, see if there is an update - or better: don't install/buy upgrades, pdvd10 does a fine job and doesn't come with megabytes of useless crap)

    I think this is one of those infamous BBC PAL Blurays. It's 1080i @ 25FPS, AKA 1080i/50hz. While they work on most PC setups, some do not seem to handle them and give a blank screen because it cannot switch.

    I would suggest the OP to make MKVs of these titles and try them with a different media player such as MPC-HC.

    I will try to convert to MKVs, etc. Thanks for the comments/
