We are having a 3 hour open house this Sunday and the Realtor wants a movie playing during it. Not to show off the equipment, so it doesn't need to be a great audio mix or anything, but it needs to be family friendly and long. I was thinking one of the Lord of the Rings movies in extended edition, but they are two discs and nobody will be there to swap discs. I have the ability to play DVDs, HD-DVDs, and Blu-Rays. Any ideas?

Good one! I was about to say you're not gonna find a "family" movie that is 3hrs because most producers/studios know they won't be able to hold kids' attentions for that long. I forgot about King Kong though.

Is there any way to loop a movie on a bd/dvd player?

I wouldn't necessarily say King Kong is family friendly if you are talking about toddlers and such. I would think that you could author a DVD with 2 movies on it and have them play right after each other with no menus, Toy Story and Toy Story 2 would be keeping with the times ;\) although the video quality would be greatly reduced.

I recall my BD player having a repeat option, but I've never tested it.

I think the repeat only works for cd's, but I could be wrong.

I'd do an A/B repeat loop with Pixar's Cars. That would be the longest family movie ever made. ;\)
