Titanic perhaps? I believe it's available on one DVD and it runs a bit over 3 hrs.

I'm pretty sure almost any DVD player will have a "repeat Disc" mode, or at ;east a "Repeat A-B" mode where you can designate A as the beginning of the movie and B as the end.

We do a fair number of DVDs for clients who need them for trade-show looping, and there's never been a client who called us and said "we can't get this to work on our DVD player".

I would think BD players would offer it as well, but I can't verify that the majority of them do.

And, any Pixar movie would be great.

I will have to check my hardware (shown in my sig line) when I get home tonight about a-b repeating. I don't think that I have any pixar flicks in HD but again, not selling the equipment, but the room, and pixar movies look great on DVD anyway. I have Avatar on BD but was told that I can't open it until fathers day, plus it is a hair short unless I can loop it. King Kong would be a bit much if a kid saw it.

Yeah, I wouldn't call LotR exactly family friendly, either. I'd say Kruncher's got the right idea. Put on a movie and loop it.

“The Sound of Music” is just a few minutes under 3 hours, however, I like the looping idea with a more contemporary movie better.

Nice one Dean, I even liked the Sound of Music once it hit DVD. Julie sounds amazing played through the M80s :), there's even some nice surround action with the thunder and foosteps in the chase scene near the end.

I think a Pixar movie would be great. Maybe Wall-E. Not much dialog in that movie, which is a plus for this setting.

Looks like my HD-A2 player should do a loop. The Sony S550 should too. :-)

Well now I’m going to have to put it in my queue. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it about all I remember is developing a serious crush on Angela Cartwright between the movie and “Lost in Space.”
