Does it bug the you know what out of anyone else....the amount of time it takes to get to the menu section on some DVDs?

There are several DVDs that we have that you can't skip to the menu part so you are forced to watch ads for other things. It is like forced commercials. I can't stand it!!

  • We have several DvD's like that but if you hold down the skip button then it will fast forward (similar to a vhs, normally in speeds of 2, 4, 8) and it will stop at the menu section.

  • It also depends on your DVD player. We had an RCA that wouldn't let us hit the menu button early. With our new Sony it's no problem.
