The problem is that there is no standard way to achieve this, i.e. you can't
press down arrow three times, then press OK, then press right arrow twice
etc. different DVD manufacturors plonk it in different places in their
menus.
Very annoying. If AD is available on the DVD, it should be possible for the
player to detect this, and take appropriate action, dependent on a one time
setup by a person with eyes.

Best,

David.

Hi,

so do I take it that the topic is ok for this list? If so, I'll tell you
what I've been thinking. If not, let's move on.

Thanks,
Clive
