Ok still messing with DVD Software and Region Killer and cant seem to get it ot do what it is supposed to do. I have tried WinDVD Ver 2 and 4, no joy I have also tried with Power DVD 4, no joy. It either informs me I have inserted the wrong DVD, or when inserting the correct region the DVD plays very slow/stuttery. My DVD ROM is region free. I am running Win2k, could this be the problem as I have heard some say that Windows ME seems to work well with a HTPC setup. Any thought?
