Im going to try this again because my wife gets doggin me, saying the Ps3 is a waste of 600.00 and so on.The problem is i will be watching a movie then after a 1/2 hour or so the menue where you can stop change chapter or what ever will pop up.I hit triangle and all is good.Then 45 minutes or so same thing.I have Sony BD remote also.The batteries are new and removed because i thought it was that and game remote is fully charged.Any ideas?

I am not sure, maybe it's a bluetooth glitch ??? It could possibly be tilting the playstation controller but i doubt it because i never watched a movie i wouldn't know. But tilting a controller online brought up player list and i had to ask others to find that that was the prob, well i'm really just posting this hoping someone else comes in... this is your bump ;)

I don't personally own a remote control like the one you have, but ummm call Sony. Ask for help, and in my honest opinion, I believe it's your blu-ray remote.

I have the remote and I have never experienced that problem. I wish I could help you but I have never had a problem playing movies at all. Maybe it's something in your system settings, or someone touching the sixaxis, I dunno. Maybe return it for a replacement.

i pretty much watch a movie a day, and i have never had that happen with my ps3. how long have you had your ps3? if its still under warranty i would probably try to get a new system.

I've watched many movies on the PS3 and have not had that problem. It is most likely a glitch that you have to get looked at.

I have the same problem with mine. It only happens on non-bluray movies for me. I dont use a BT controller so I doubt that's the issue. ITs not a major issue but funny enough my wife has made the 'you paid $600 for this" comment a couple of times.

I have actually had the same problem and I FINALLY figured it out. It was one of my PS3 controllers. The way I figured this out was to shut off the controllers and be sure the problem stops. Then, I would turn one of the controllers back on. If it started doing it again, then you found the problem controller, if not, move on to the next until you do. Now, as far as fixing the controller from doing that, no luck but I have atleast figured out which one is the culprit.
