Yeah, those delays are annoying.  The "easy" solution would be to queue
up the disk to exactly where you want to begin playback, and pause it
there.  Of course, my latest DVD player (a sub $100 philips model that
supports progressive scan) would defeat this solution by virtue of
deciding to go to sleap after a very short period of time while paused,
then take over 10 seconds to wake back up.  Grr.  Stupid, stupid,

Well, it sounds like your church is better off here than mine is.
