that's the one i fall under. i don't mind using the controller for bd playback but i find myself accidentally reversing or fast forwarding from sitting on the l2 and r2 buttons from time to time.

Fanboys continue to kiss butt, but this has to be the most moronic design decision ever. What do they save from eliminating an IR receiver? A couple of cents at their volumes?
