    For the life of me, I can't understand why the supplemental materials on Fox discs are not time-coded. When I click on a feature, I'd like to know whether it's going to take 5 minutes or 45 minutes to watch! Especially when the long ones have no chapter stops, so leaving off in the middle of a feature that runs longer than I have time for would involve a lot of fast-forwarding.

    Is there a reason for this? Could I really be the only person who is annoyed by it? Is there any chance that this will change?

    Thanks for reading!

    I too find this irritating as hell. On my dvd players, you can stop a dvd, and it will remember the location and pick it up when you come back. But...it has to be time-coded, which means if I get interrupted 25 minutes into a supplement, bam, I've got to search to find my place later. [​IMG]

    I was a little worried when I opened up my new Master And Commander set, but lo and behold, a pleasant surprise!

    Not only were the extra features time-coded, but they had CHAPTER STOPS!!!

    Great job, Fox! THIS is the way to do it!
