    Hi Luke,

    As far as I know, the coding system has to be present on the DVD disc itself. That is to say, if you insert a DVD with a Parental Lock coding of 8 (the most extreme rating, usually to stop kids accessing 18 certificate titles, for example), then the player will ask you to enter a PIN number. If you don't enter the correct number after three tries, it will lock you out, and won't let you play the disc.

    As far as I know, though, only a very few Region 1 discs use this function. The only time I came across this function, was on my Region 1 edition of "Urotsukidoji IV: Infernal Road".

    Bearing in mind that this movie is banned in the UK, and is a really extreme title, then it practically served no use having the Lock Coding included on it (unless you've got really clever and devious kids/other family members), as you had to be over 18 to obtain the disc in the first place.

    Ultimately, it serves little or no purpose for those of us in the UK. If you don't want people playing certain films, then you;d be better off just hiding the DVD's away, or locking them out of sight/reach of the offending people.

    Sorry.

    Hi SS,

    The film I'm talking about is the fourth movie in a series of Japanese erotic/horror animations, known as the "UROTSUKIDOJI SAGA".

    Just go to this link and all will be revealed. However, be warned, the site deals with ADULTS ONLY material, so don't look if you are very easily offended!

    "Infernal Road" is made up of three 40-45 minute episodes. Episodes 1 and 2 are banned outright in the UK, because they are essentially animated child porn. There are excessive scenes of children involved in sexual situations; scenes of rape; scenes of gang rape; scenes of multiple penetration; scenes of children watching adults being sexually abused and raped and/or mutilated.

    I'm sure that you can now see why it's banned by the BBFC. If you want more info, then just do a keyword search under any of the following:-

    UROTSUKIDOJI
    UROTSUKIDOJI: Legend Of The Overfiend
    UROTSUKIDOJI II: Legend From The Demon Womb
    UROTSUKIDOJI III: Return Of The Overfiend
    UROTSUKIDOJI IV: Infernal Road (or "Inferno Road" as it is sometimes known)
    Toshio Maeda - the man who created the whole UROTSUKIDOJI saga.

    Pooch
