Hi! I am currently looking for a DVD player that would let me go directly to the menu without having to watch the adverts. This is for playing Disney (but not only) DVDs to my son. I HATE these un-acceptable commerciales! I have paid for a film and I don't understand that I can be forced to watch EACH time the same crap! Sometimes, it is simply a 5mn menu you can't pass! The only company I know offering this kind of modification is Techtronics. I have bought my first player from them (pioneer 535) 2 years ago and was very happy with their service. Now I read all these bad experience from people previously happy. I am surprised as i have been in touch with them these last days and always got an answer (email) the same day (only sales dept?) Anyway, the real stuff I'd want is a Pioneer and not a Sony. But they only modify the Sony 905 and 999 with this feature. I was about to buy the 905 when I read these terrible threads about them. My question is: where the hell can I get a player with this "User prohibition disabled" feature if not Techtronics? Am I the only one to HATE these sh**t? I am ready to pay for this modification on any player. Where do you recommend buying a region-free player these days? Thank you very much!
