TMT 5.3 is also giving me this problem with the blu-ray edition of "Justice League: Doom" which I just purchased yesterday. It just coughs up the "this disc cannot be played" message. It was late at night when I tried this, and didn't feel like trying another disc, so I just reinstalled TMT 5.2. I suppose it's possible this could be a disc issue, given that I didn't test it with any other blu-rays, but that seems unlikely to me given that it works fine with TMT 5.2. Another minor issue is that I'm also getting crackling in the audio which is not present when playing DVDs. This issue has persisted through subsequent upgrades/reinstalls of TMT, and is not exclusive to any single blu-ray disc. Playing a blu-ray using TMT's Windows Media Center integration makes the crackling less noticable, but it's still there, and still annoying. Unfortunately, using TMT through media center has a drawback. I haven't found any way to bring up the navigation console for discs that don't support the use of a mouse when using TMT through media center. If the disc doesn't support the use of a mouse, I have to start the movie with my TM Remote phone app which will dis-connect, and refuse to re-connect after about five minutes of not being used. I understand the app relies upon wi-fi connectivity, and it doesn't usually give me problems connecting initially, but once it has lost it's connection, it will refuse to re-connect even though the wi-fi is detected, and active. Any suggestions anyone may have are greatly appreciated. I'm including a quick rundown of my system specs below:
Win 7 Pro x64
Asus Crosshair V Formula mobo (newest BIOS revision) using onboard sound
AMD Phenom IIx4 980 (3.7GHz)
8GB Corsair Dominator GT PC3-15000 1866 RAM
Nvidia 580GTX (1.5GB onboard GDDR5 RAM)
Asus BW-12B1ST/BLK/G internal Blu-Ray burner
After doing a fresh install of TMT 18.104.22.168 (was using upgrade edition before), as well as updating my graphics driver to 304.79 (beta--just released 7/3/12), I am pleased to report that the crackling audio issue is resolved, and blu-ray discs now play. "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" seems to have problems in the 8th chapter, but this is a recent purchase, and it's possible this could be a disc issue. My next step here is to test it in my parent's stand alone blu-ray player, and get an exchange if it exhibits problems there. I have also noticed that I haven't been able to enable the graphic equalizer, but this seems like a small price to pay for resolving the crackling audio issue, and getting a couple of other discs (Green Lantern stuttered, and Sherlock Holmes hung up in the 4th chapter with video hardware acceleration enabled) which were giving me problems before to play smoothly. For me, the solution was to update my graphics driver, then uninstall 5.2 and re-boot, install 5.3 (full install, not upgrade) and re-boot. I won't speculate on whether or not the updated graphics driver was related to the resolution of this issue, but I figured it couldn't hurt. Hopefully, this information will be of use to other users experiencing similar problems.
Lastly, I had heard it mentioned on this forum that the TM Remote mobile phone app had received an update addressing connection issues like the ones I initially reported on, but there is no update available for it on my Android Market (my carrier is Verizon, and I use a Droid X). My only suggestion regarding the mobile phone app would be that I would like to see the connection issues addressed, and also for it to become a bit more feature rich.
