I don't think this is a technical issue like a bug but, rather something I think is being caused by a poorly authored Blu-Ray disc. The title in question is Neon Genesis Evangelion The Complete Series (Bardode ID: US 82663220216). The set (Five Discs) include 26 Episodes (as described in IMDB) plus another disc with two subsequent movies (69min, and 87min each).

The problem is that all of the episodes (and movies) on each disc are in one big playlist. To explain further, I've attached a screenshot of Disc 1.


In this Screenshot, Title 4 (MPLS 00000) is all of the episodes on the disc (and there are no playlists after it). If you tell the player to play all, or, play episode 1, it starts that playlist from 00:00. The remaining Episodes map out as follows:

Ep. 2: Chapter 6
Ep. 3: Chapter 11
Ep. 4: Chapter 16
Ep. 5: Chapter 21
Ep. 6: Chapter 26
Ep. 7: Chapter 31

This same setup is used on every disc in the set. Unfortunately, this means that Chapter 1 of the playlist is actually 1:31 into the first episode. The problem I'm faced with is that I cannot map Episodes 1, 8, 15, and 21 as they are the first episodes on each disc.

I can't imagine that I'm the first user to experience something like this so, I'm wondering just how I should proceed?
