Access The Menu

Is there anyway to access the menu screen of the blu-ray? Not to play just to see the titles of the extras along with the main movie.

I have adventureland and a mac - My PS3 just broke so I have no way of viewing it on my regular player...

The movie has 3 26GB Tracks which is the movie and 2 alternate ending versions (I assume) but would like to know for sure.

I figure this is the only way to watch my movies without spending alot of $$$

Yes if you use the full backup option. Must use full backup because MKV container does not support menus.

However you will have a hard time finding a player that supports BD menu. AFAIK there is no official MAC Bluray software and the only open source project is still in development stages but may work... Not really sure as I have not tried it.

If you are curious about this project you can compile mplayer with it.

I don't want to have to do a full backup before I can even see the menu...That is HOURS extra...guess I will just wing-it for now. Hopefully some sort of blu-ray playback is available soon.

I have parallells on my Mac but I guess that cant play Blu-Ray either.
