    My personal preference is WinDVD.

    Anyway, some of the good budget players that you can look at; if your DVD player is not multi-region, I suggest you replace it, you've been missing a whole lot of good R1 material!

    Pioneer DV-676A
    Great player, no problems with reading all types of DVD, DVD-A/SACD compatible, MP3/WMA readability, able to read literally all DivX/xVID materials (heard that new firmware even allows for subtitle support!) Has progressive scan. Approx $270++ at KEC.

    Denon 1910
    Less functionality compared to Pioneer, but a more dedicated DVDP. Has DVI output for 720p,i,1080i output (need HDCP compatible display), and the famed Faroudja DCDi 2301 deinterlacing chip (entry level solution).

    But it's a little less responsive, DVD layer changes are a tad slow. (Hope they can improve this in new firmware). I got this yesterday for $365.

    In short, if you are just looking for a decent level DVDP, get the Pioneer. It's really worth more than its value.

    IMHO, I find pioneer playheads too sensitive, some of those china DVDs and direct ordered HK DVDs can't play properly. As in half way through, the movie starts to jerk around. Some disc can't play at all.

    Congrats!!

    Thirteen days, the one by Kevin Costner? Good choice!

    If you like that show, you probably won't miss NIxon, JFK etc.

    Izzit?, My Pioneer DV-676A-S plays everything from US code 1 to cheap homemade DVD+R videos with no problem leh! Can even play MP3s ripped onto DVD-RW disc.

    Just wondering if I am able to copy a DVD movie using a computer DVD RW drive? I tried but seems like it is some how protected. Any way to get it done? Am using Nero 6 now.

    Yes, first you need to use DVD Decrypter to rip the contents of the DVD movie in your HDD. After that, use DVD Shrink to copy it to the DVD+/-RW. I've backup DVD many times using this combo.

    Both softwares can be downloaded for free over the net.

    You can find out more at www.dvdrhelp.com

    However, if the DVD is protected, that means you shouldn't and can't copy it, for copyright issues.

    Piracy is a big NO NO!
