The first part of your idea would be very difficult to do. It all depends on the DVD. Some have the movie start up right away (and with the wrong soundtrack: 2.0 instead of 5.1) as soon as the disc goes in the player. Some start up with a menu. Some start up with commercials (Disney I hate you!), etc.
They should standardize things.
Some people use Crestron touch panel controllers. Some have programmed their Pronto remotes for macros. You need an IR distribution network though.
STOP DFAST and The MPAA!!
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
