    Hi

    I understand that we can only change the dvd region on apple dvd player about 5 times then were stuck with whichever we end on.

    I'm a fan of Northern Exposure but I don't see season 2 coming out in the uk. I have a region free dvd player but i'm planning on buying a new powermac with a 20" screen - so obviously I would like watch it on there

    Has anyone seen any ways around this - maybe making the dvd player region 0 to make it region free ?

    Can you use MactheRipper to rip the DVD, then burn a new DVD in Popcorn and change the Region code there? As long as you own the DVD, it is legal to make a copy as a back-up, but I don't know what laws there are about applying this to DVD's from other Regions. Anyone...Bueller?

    Could Macripper be used with Toast I think i'm likely to be buying that ?

    No.
    you need to reencode the movies if they are over 4.7gigabyte (single layer DVD)

    But why burn them?
    Just rip it and use DVD player on the ripped VIDEO_TS folder.
    Just remove macrovision and region codes with mactheripper.
