Having problems with your Acer Aspire m5640 PC Desktop ?

I have Acer Aspire M5640 (Purchased 1st. Oct. 2008) with BluRay disc drive. Disc will play standard DVDs but not BluRay Comes up with error 0122 when trying to play BDS disc via HDMIOm cable to HDMI TV. Acer tells me that they will not fix under warranty. Just because it (the PC) has a BluRay disc player installed does not mean you can view BluRay movies. (That's direct from ACER!) Has anyone else come across this problem? Surely to Joe Blow in the street.... if the PC has a BluRay drive fitted
