    Not with you here. The book is mine forever. I can read it as many times as I want, and where ever I want. Far better return on investment than a single showing of a movie in a noisey theater.

    Good point. I didn't think of that as I rarely re-read my books.

    Forgive the momentary off-topic slide, but why would you buy new hardcovers of books you only intend to read once?
    For that stuff, we have paperbacks, libraries, used book stores, etc!

    I Don't get it? I do not have a clock wise arrow all i have is a arrow pointing right with a line and it brings me to the end of the show. How do I do the 30 second slip? I do have a counter clock wise arrow that brings me back 6 seconds......

    Same button, same function, just different graphic.
    Some models of the remote have the -->| symbol, some have the clockwise arrow. I think the remote that pack with r15 have one and the remotes that pack with the D11 have the other.

    To check what version of software you have, do MENU - SETTINGS - SETUP - INFO & TEST, then scroll down a screen or two and you will see the latest software version that you have.

    Most likely, you don't have the newest which gives the 30 second slip, but it is due to go nationwide release this week, so you should have it any day now.

    I'll tell you what I hate more than the commercials. It really burns me when I take my wife and kid to the cinema, then have to sit through one of those anti-piracy campaign commercials. I'm forced to listen to a multi-millionaire tell me that I shouldn't steal from him. Mother F@*%#r, I just paid more than $50 to see this piece of crap that you call a movie. Who's stealing from who here? :new_cussi

    I agree with you that's why I don't go to the movies or buy them I rent them when they come out cheaper. :listenup: You know those movie stars have to pay for their lifestyle like expensive cars heaters for there pools they really need that extra million dollars:scratch: :money:

    I doubt he was talking about "that" book. While I've already posted my support for the cost of books, your self-publishing story is NOT representative of the hardcover publishing industry. In other words, Random House isn't selling books at a loss.

    Sorry....farther off topic.

    OK, I'm sorry I said anything. Sorry to paul for hijacking his thread. It wasn't my intention. Let's take any further discussion to another forum/thread.

    What I replied to specifically was the comments about 1:books and 2:commercials. Random House would not profit as much if at all without commercials. Self publishers seldom profit because they do not have the access to publicity as do the big publishing companies. Publishing costs a lot, lo the $25 for the hardcover. But if you were referring to the topic to 30 second jump, then you are dead on. I was off that.

    I just checked my own R-15 and I do not yet have the 30 second jump. Darn!
