If the box that is accessing the drive is running Linux, then if you are
playing DVD's with it, surely you will be using decss? I thought that
with decss, the region code was bypassed?
I'm fairly certain that the DVD rewritter in my machine is Region 2, but
I've never had any problems playing Region 1 DVD's in it. Also my
parents system is duel boot and Region 1 DVD's won't play under windows
but will under Linux.
All this means that I'm wondering why you need a multi-region DVD player
for a computer running linux?
