Cole: you may be able to watch multi-region DVDs on your computer. If your DVD-ROM is an older one, there are various firmware hacks that will allow region free playing. Most newer DVD ROM drives, like mine, will only allow 4-5 region changes before you get locked in to the last region you choose. A solution for that problem is Region-Free DVD
, which will stop your drive from keeping count of the region changes (if it works for your drive). They offer a trial version to test whether it will work for you. It costs $39.95 for the fully functional version. Also, if your computer's video card ha a S-video out, you can plug it into your TV if your TV has a S-video in.
I seldom watch DVDs on my computer, because I have a big-screen TV and a decent entry-level digital receiver with a subwoofer, surround and center speakers, etc for watching epics and action flicks, etc.
