Working...
I'm having LJ issues. But, I forgot to mention, I had to return Pokemon 4-ever yesterday so we could rent another movie. I already miss it!

Now, help me out here. DVDs have all those "special" features, but in general, we only watch them once. DVDs cannot be set for Repeat Play. DVDs are less destructible than VHS. But VHS can be set on Repeat Play, and then you can have the movie on as you sleep. I like to have the movie on as I sleep. Gives me Pokemon dreams.

Poll #143728 VHS or DVD

Should I buy Pokemon 4-ever on DVD, or VHS?

 Why can you repeat something analog easier than repeating digital?
DVDs cannot be set for Repeat Play

That depends on your DVD player.
I know my DVD player can Repeat Play an audio CD; I haven't told it to put a DVD on Repeat Loop before, but I don't see why it couldn't do that. Same principle. And no rewind time.

What's really trippy is when you put it on random and pop in a DVD... especially if you have "someone" over and are on your second movie of the evening.

Not that i've ever proven to a date that i'm a total putz by doing that, of course.

Well, then maybe I just don't know how to set my DVD player. Or I have a stupid one. Tell me how yours works as far as repeat play options?

Mine has a Repeat and Random button on the remote. If you're using a non-factory remote, you might not have the button and therefore may not be able to access the feature (!). So you'll want to get an IR dongle or your palm pilot and use a software remote ;^)

It's the factory remote. Maybe they've just abbreviated, and I have to determine what the abbreviation is. It doesn't have a convenient little circly arrow icon like the cd player does, I know that much.

Or, my DVD player doesn't do that. (It was a gift, so you never know.)

Dumb Idea: run the model number/make through Google and find someone selling it, and grab a feature list from there =)

Really handy when you have several grocery bags full of manuals and don't feel like searching for the right one...

Wow -- I've discovered amazing things! I found the users manual, and do you know, the remote has a HIDDEN PANEL! It was like Christmas!

Although, I *do* feel like a bit of a fool for owning the thing for 6 months before noticing that.

Incidentally, the question you used as your subject is the exact question I've asked myself several times since setting up the DVD.
