> ...you still have to wait a minute+ for a movie to run
It's not quite as bad as it sounds. Most BD films I've watched don't have all the crap at the start ("You're probably a thief", etc). So, whilst it might take a while for the disc to load you are normally watching a film more quickly than with the equivalent DVD. We watched "Be Kind Rewind" on Friday night and it was auto-playing in around a minute. No daft menus. No trailers. No copyright warnings. Just as it should be (actually, it caught me out as I was still setting up the HiFi and turning the volume down to zero on the telly when the film started).
Obviously it would be nice if it was instant - but then streaming from the Media Server isn't instant either. My NAS is usually in power-save so that has to wind itself up, I have to navigate through the films, select the one I want and then there is still a good pause. In any case, if you are really THAT bothered about a 1 minute delay to start watching a 2 hour film, you need to slow down a bit :) Traa-dy-Liooar, fella.
