strange DVD problem
#1
(crossposted in Libreelec-forum, I don't know where the problem is, in Kodi or Libreelec)

Hi,

I have a problem playing some DVDs (all from Ken Burns Civil-War-documentary; maybe others too, I have too much to test them all).

My System:
Raspberry 3, Libreelec 8.0.2, Kodi 17 (Krypton), external DVD-Player (LiteOn)

The problem:
When I push the ‘Disc’-Button, nothing happens (no DVD-menu, no movie), instead the GUI freezes. The only solution is to unplug the player, then the GUI is working again, except the ‘Disc’-Button, that is gone.

This is from kodi.log after unplugging the DVD-player:

And I just found out that It is possible to start the DVD-menu from the file-manager.

These DVDs are playing well on all my other devices (Standalone DVD-player, XBOX, Linux-Notebook). I can plug-in the LiteOn external DVD-player into my notebook, and can play the movie with Kafeine or Mplayer.

I have other problems with DVDs too, some will only start after a reboot with the DVD in the player or after some attempts to start them; sometimes the movie stops somewhere in the middle, but I don’t now, if these problems are related. All DVDs are clean and working on my other systems.

Its very frustrating, everything else is working fine and I really like the whole thing very much.

Problem solved so far, the DVD-players region-code was not set. This had very strange effects...
