DVD commentaries not activating



Hi all,

I'm checking the 'Commentary on' box, either against the Play All option or individual episode option, and then trying both options of Enter or Play ... but I'm getting no commentaries, nothing different from the standard play episode.

If I stop and bring the menu back up, the default of 'Commentary off' is checked --

what am I doing wrong?

That sounds weird, maybe try pressing different buttons on the "on" button. I tried it last night and it played fine with commentary, that's the only thing i can think of.

Hi,

Might be the same problem as subtitles -- even when I check them Off in the options, they still appear. Can only cancel them by using the Subtitles button on the remote control.

Since this happens with all DVDs I have, it must be the player set-up ... anyone know why these settings options aren't being retained before playing? Really annoying!

Ah, figured out the subtitles problem, but still can't get commentaries.

Try pressing the audio button while watching the episode, hopefully that'll change it to the commentaries.

Maybe I can check with others -- when I check the Commentary On option, then press Enter, there's a brief pause during which all the options there (Comm. Off, Comm. On, Back) appear un-checked, then the episode plays automatically in the default mode of Commentary Off.

Shouldn't Enter normally fix and display the option choice, before hitting Play?

What happens when others hit Enter on that option? Does it still play automatically after a pause, but with the commentary?

Sorry to witter on about it, but I'm flummoxed ...

AH!

Pressed the Audio button twice in quick succession while the episode was playing and now commentary is on -- thanks!
