1. A local newspaper reviewer of video programs
recently wrote that he refuses to buy any Blu-ray discs because they
don't have the "resume" feature that DVDs have. I checked
and he is correct. He likes British drama series and it is helpful to
be able to resume viewing where you left off the previous time. I happen
to have both the DVD and Blu-ray editions of a film, so I loaded the
DVD into the Blu-ray player, played into the movie, and then stopped
and shut off the player. Then I turned on the player and pressed "Play".
It resumed where I left off. I then tried the same thing with the Blu-ray
edition. It resumed at the beginning of the disc. Particularly annoying
was having to sit through (or skip through) a dozen or so trailers before
accessing the movie. (Apparently some discs have that feature though
I don't know which ones).
