I called to notify them I will be seeking a refund or exchange but they have not responded yet. NOT happy.

Does anyone else use the S5100 for watching youtube videos? I'm highly annoyed by the 30 second commercials that are played before the videos. It used to be that the commercials were only occasional (1 out of 10 or 15 videos), but now there seems to be a commercial in front of every video.

Is this happening to anyone else? Is it Sony putting the commercials in there, or is it actually Youtube?

What's strange is that when I watch the exact same videos on a regular computer browser, there are no commercials. And, there's also no commercials when I access the videos using my AppleTV box.

But StingingVelvet claimed to have received a response from 220-electronics. I don't care about whether they usually give a response or not. I only care about the response that they did give in this case.

I will do a network setup later and do a FW update if necessary.
