Is there a way to skip coming attractions when starting a DVD?


I wish there were a simple answer. You could try the chapter-forward button to skip each promo but getting past all of them at once doesn’t have an answer.

It worsens with Blu-ray. When I try chaper-forward the screen says ‘This operation forbidden by this disc’. So I use the fast forward button.

My Blu-ray player has a ‘go to main menu’ button but that only works once you’re into the disc – not allowed for promos and copyright screens.

I know how it’s done: the promos are flagged to run and that flag can’t be manipulated.

To top it off it’s not consistent. Each disc is flagged differently. I have discs I can send to menu skipping the promos and some discs that don’t.

Maybe someone has it figured out.
