All I can say is these people will pry my husband's-and-my DVD player and TV out of our cold, dead hands.

Ironically, in response to your comment about skipping intros, I just learned that our DVD player lets us do that, in a roundabout way anyways. As soon as you see the usual "FBI" screen, hit Stop,Menu,Play and the actual content usually starts right up.

Works at at least a few of our DVD's.

The ironic part? This is a SONY DVD player, which we (fortunately?) bought before the big rootkit scandal.

One thing I do worry about is that some movie release in the future will include some kind of software/firmware update, which could break this (probably unintended) feature. Is that possible with current generation players or releases?
