I can't stand this crap and can't figure out a way around it. Anyone else? I really don't want to watch trailers for the Notebook while I'm trying to watch the Expendables.

I can't tell you how much this annoys me!! My player, my movie...how dare they lock me from skipping? On some I've been able to fast forward....but not the same!

Early DVD players could not skip "mandatory" parts like FBI copyright warnings either. Give the Chinese a few years.

The disc is the main culprit, however, the player is also culpable. They are designed so that the disc can override the function that would allow one to skip the ads.

I was so happy that my Panasonic blu-ray would skip the previews... Then I did a firmware update(mandatory if you want to use the streaming features, and I use it to watch Netflix). No more skipping or fast forwarding. However, at least on mine, I found that if you hit the "Top Menu" button on the remote, it dumps you to the BR players main function menu, where you can then tell it to go straight to the disc's movie menu. Annoying, but at least it's something. Then again, it got REAL annoying when included in the previews were product ads... Do I really need a gum commercial on my blu-ray movies? Ugh. Stick to warnings and movie previews at least!
