Re: Blu-ray disc skip
I had no problems with Surf's Up, haven't yet rented (won't buy) RE Extinction.
I do feel your pain with the waiting to load menus! Ironically, my PS3 doesn't take nearly as long as my stand alone players to load these! Which player are you using? Still the Sony BDP-S1? If so, mine works fine with Surfs up, have you put the new firmware into it? I think they are up to something like 3.6 now....
