I prefer the instant pause style in old UI, which means I only need to press one key if I would like to pause the playback.
In the new UI, the first press of the confirm button(on PS3) only brings up the menu bar. I have to press the confirm button one more time to pause the video.
Can I just pause the playback and brings up the menu bar at the same time on just one press of the confirm button?

Use the START button :)

I don't like this double-pause feature, too.
Also I don't like that the menu pops-up at all.
I don't care for this menu and I have no use for it.
Please remove this feature or add an option to disable it.

And the worst part is that the new UI is showing me the length of the video at so many new places that it is impossible to not see it.
I'm using Movian to watch hockey games and the duration of the video is pretty revealing on the outcome of the game.

Back to 4.xx builds.

If you don't like, don't use it.

You get what you pay for.
