I have only just started using DVD's and am already being driven mad by adverts which lockout the front panel. I use a DVD-ROM drive and on a number of films I have found that it is impossible to skip past adverts and I often can't even accelerate them. I can put up with this first time around, but if i watch a film over 3 sittings then i have to sit for 5 minutes watching the trailers before i can fast-forward to where i want to be on the disc every time. Does anyone know of any way around this, or any software that stops the front panel being locked out??? If not, does anyone know of any groups lobbying the companies about this practice. I think it most unreasonable that we should pay for the privelidge of having to watch adverts!!!
