More help needed with playlist. Thanks
Some more help with a playlist, Thanks
Looks like there's yet another variation of this disc...
And yet another.... thanks in Advance Pete...
Playlist obfuscation here as well.
I'm gathering the 3 previous posts today are the same - but just in case... here's my logfile.
They're not, different versions and yours is yet another different version

Looks like obriens2's is the same logfile I posted in message #9.
Logfile name is the same -- except his was mounted in a G drive so "G" precedes the movie name and mine was in an E drive.
But the numbers are an exact match.
Those 2 yes, but the other log below it is a different one.

The distinct logfiles are in messages #1, 6, 8, 9, and 10.
Isn't that a lot for one movie?
Not by a long shot. Think @Pete once said there was a title not too long ago with over a dozen variants. Think about it. There's 3 bd regions, if each region has as little as 3 variants you're already looking at 9 different versions. If each region has 4, that's a dozen...

...which is the same as this one
...and this one, (which is different)
Though this one:
...does not appear to have any Screen Pass on it - I also don't see anything confusing regarding the playlists, there are only two candidates (803, 804).
I'll call it JAD (Just A Disc).
Big thumbs up over here Pete.
Working with the movie in CloneBD and it is now showing just one Main Feature @ 1:56:56.
Thanks again, man.
Well when you put it like that it does seem more plausible that there are 4 or 5 version (so far) for Spy.
But geez, they would go through the trouble of making 3 or 4 per region?
Region A might seem, at first, like it doesn't require many different versions. "Hey, we're all Americans, a region A disc comes with English, Spanish and French, so we're all happy".
Unfortunately, the world expands beyond the borders of the US - it just looks like the ocean is the end of the world
Notice, how Japan, Hong-Kong, etc..., who are also region A, are sort of being left out?
I'll not mention regions B and C, the same holds there, but region A alone comes in more languages, than you'd want to cram on a single disc.
Then there's often the typical basic retail version, the extended version ("you liked that movie? Come buy again, you'll get an additional 3 minutes for another 25$"), the rental version (often without bonus material), the steel book version, ... you get the general direction of this....
And sometimes (rather often, actually), there's a re-release after a while (I don't know, the shit is maybe low on stock and still selling like crazy), which means the same pre-master of the disc gets put into pressing again, but for technical or whatever reason gets an updated protection (AACS and/or Screen Pass).
So there you'll get a whole new set of new versions.
So, in short: 3 or 4 per region is not really as high as it gets...
I hate to admit it but I thought Blu-Ray regions were within one continent. Looking it up now...
So I didn't know Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are in Region A. And B lumps together Europe, Africa, Middle East and Australia among others.
Makes sense there would be many versions per region then.
Then there's the variations of retail, steelbook, extended, etc.?
I guess that could make dealing with Screen Pass a full-time job in and of itself :=).
Seems a bit overwhelming.
Congrats to you all for handling it so well.
