Hi Guys

just wondering if anyone would know why the "Play DVD" menu item on the basic menu doesnt work, when i insert a DVD i get prompted if i want to play the dvd fine and dvd playback is perfect, however if from the main menu i press "play DVD" the screen goes black for a couple seconds then kicks back to the basic home, i then have to go to "videos" and run from the Drive letter

would love to get this fixed if anyone can help me

Mickyblue :D

    its called "DVD shortcut".
    This *really* ought to be documented somewhere - or even better, toggled on by default by the installer. The "Play DVD" entry in the basic menu is there by default and by default it doesn't work :)
