As most of know, most standard definitions DVD players have an "angle" control button on their remote controls. Do Blu-Ray players also have an "angle" control? I ask this because over the last few months, I have come across a few Blu-Ray discs that require you to hit the "angle" button to switch the version of the movie on the fly. I have two different model Panasonic Blu-Ray players, and neither has an "angle" control. Is this something Panasonic left out, or were the discs improperly mastered?

My LG BH-200 has an angle button...but no way to turn off the angle icon if you don't want to use the feature. Hence when watching something with multiple angles (like the Star trek Original Series BR discs) I have the angle icon popping up on the top right of the screen during the program.

I have a Panasonic Blu-ray also and it does not have a angle button on the remote. In the on screen display area it has an area to change angle. My Sony Blu-ray has an angle button.

Panasonic forgot to put Subtitle buttons on their remotes too.
