I've basicaly about sent MC & my pc into a coma when it comes to setting up a HT. Alot of BB & Netflix (except instant) rentals have disabled being able to skip previews and getting right to the menu - movie. This is annoying beyond a neigbors barking dog, bad food, the ex, warm beer, etc. Stop, stop (stop) play (menu) sometimes works but not always. So does VLC but back to MC, wondering what anyone else has come up with, besides ripping a movie - which takes about as much time as the $@*& - &^%Þ prieviews.
I don't place blame on BB or Netflix as they are not the product producers, but the promoters and studios that decided this was a good idea should all be sterilized.
