    I've always used DVD Genie & TheaterTek.
    Never had a problem (after unlocking the DVD drive firmware).

    Not tried Theatertek but I use AnyDVD from Slysoft.com. Works for all the software I've tried and no need to hack the drive.

    I don't use anything for TT - just my firmware hack for the drive itself. I thought TheaterTek was region independent anyway?

    When I tried it, it installed it's own region free software so you didn't have to find your own.

    Unfortunately it did something to my existing Region Killer software which meant I couldn't watch RCE disks via PowerDVD.

    As I couldn't see any difference between PDVD5 and TT, I uninstalled it and got a refund. I had to roll back to before the install date for my system to operate correctly with DVDs again though.

    I think that's it's own region killer software. It was probably that that caused my RCE problems with PDVD after it was installed.
