How do you turn off the "TVs"

I was getting frustrated with the race I was trying to finish, and after finishing it, the game wouldn't let me move from the stupid TV that was playing some videos. I just wanted to quit the game. Why force me to watch crap on a small TV?

No TV's outside! What did you do go inside and accidentally click on the monitor/TV? Yah, it sucks you can't ESC out of all the videos. I personally want to know why don't I spawn over the desk after a race so I can pick a new one. NO, I have to spawn outside and then go inside waiting until I can once again choose a race. The racing is great it's the interface, and unskipable stuff that just sucks. I dearly hope Dirt 3 has a much improved interface and the ability to skip everything and just race.

I thought DIRT was bad with unskipable stuff but then I downloaded the demo for Shift last night. You might as well walk away for 5-10 minutes and do something else. You ain't skipping nothing. Exiting the game is even worse. You're done but it won't let go.

I'd delete or rename the associated BIK video files

I don't think I was to delete any files (or rename them), thanks for the info guys.

If you are ever unsure, renaming is always a safe way to go but even deleting remember this is Steam. Verify will replace any files you delete if things didn't work at all.

This. The menus are pretty unbearable.

The worst part is after a race you can't just do it again instantly without going back through the menus. (You can restart it but you lose your XP and money.)
