BD grey screen and no menu with VLC on mac mini

Dear experts,


I've just started to play my BD with VLC on mac mini, since it's zone free. I'm using an I/O external USB player and the mini is a mid 2011, osx 10.12.1, 8gb 1333 ram, and it's used only as media player, so no data inside


Everything is running smoothly (DTS & Dolby recognized by the AVR, video ok) and better on any aspect than the PS3 I was using, but I have 2 main problems


- where I can find the start menu like in the normal BD player?

- especially in the "fast" scene, I got a "grey screen", and VLC skips 2/3 second of movie before "loading" it again, like it was buffering something


do you think the mini can replace a full BD player?

am I using the best player for the scope?

do you have any recommendation on how to fix my problems of "buffering"?


thanks in advance for the help!!
