I brought a HP dv7-1175nr last month. I just put a bluray disk in it today. Said it would not play in this display mode. Did some checking, read this thread and figured how to make the movie play on my tv. If you cycle through the display modes, one will have a blank screen. Leave it on this screen and use your remote control and the movie will play. Now to get the sound working...

That's great! I'll try it.
But I still say you shouldn't have to jump thru hoops to do something that the mfg said it WOULD do
anyway! AND charges the customer extra $ to have it installedd on the computer!

I don't know if everyones figured this out yet, but I found that if you go to the nvidia control paned you can change your monitor setting to use one monitor and then choose the HD tv as your monitor and it will shut down your other monitor and it will play the disk.
I agree that it's crap that you have to go through so much to use your computer as your bluray player, but that's greed for you. That's one big reason I bought this computer.
To get to the control panel go to display settings-advanced settings-nvidia xxxx tab and on the control panel click on set up multiple monitors.
I' going to try to see if I can set up a short cut to the Nvidia control panel.

I also have this exact issue So I take it this issue is realated ONLY to Blu Ray playback ? but normal DVD's will play fine across BOTH dual monitors ? has anyone just tried using a single monitor port and just use a Y cable ? instead of setting up both monitors as clones ? I know this may not help most people but I guess I could live with just a y cable solution as plan B. I'd just try a Y cable but, id hate to waste another 30 bucks on something that may not work.

If you have truly used the lightscribe feature on your "blu-ray" dvd, then you don't have a true blue ray. Lightscribe isn't a feature on the blu ray drives.

In hopes of some mollification -I'm stoneage- R&D (research and development), Manufacture, Sales, Support and repair are seldom on the same page. So, with the rapid advancement in technology and technical jargon affected across numerous fields, it is difficult for all to be on the same page at the same time. Sorry, patience and perseverance is gotten to be a requisite now days. Thanks to all the experience shown on these support forums we still have to "weed out" what is applicable.
Had to post this even if it's not applicable.

I have had the same problem with my Pavilion m9380 connected to a Samsung LE52F96BD. I get a message that it can not playback this material on this unit or something like that. After some browsing on webforums I found that the graphicscard driver should be set to 1080i and not 1080p. Now it works perfect.
