[FFmpeg-user] How can I delay sampling the Input stream?

As shown below, ffmpeg (and ffprobe, also) samples the Input video stream at start (i.e. 0.111389). 
That's a problem. The video is soft telecined, but it has a hard telecined intro. That hard 
telecined intro is what is being sampled.

I tried '-ss 60' but that didn't affect the Input sampling. I need a report of Input sample that's 
delayed by at least 1 minute. How can I do it?


Input #0, mpeg, from 'VTS_03_1.VOB':

16:9], Closed Captions, 29.97 fps, 59.94 tbr, 90k tbn, 59.94 tbc
