Like everyone else, I find the UB9000's timeout during pausing of disk playback really annoying. At this point, after queuing up to the actual start of the movie, I unpause/pause every 5 minutes to keep the window alive while we're cooking dinner. Then we want to sit down, bless the meal, press play, and eat/watch.
Does anyone know of a special service menu or key combination to disable the timeout? Panasonic isn't doing themselves any good with this "feature" and for me is just creating ill will. Otherwise I'm extremely happy with my UB9000 and it is a shame that this forced setting is causing negative feelings about my player.
