cvlc apparently limited

Ok, there are several things you need to know here, two exactly.  

First of all, you need libdvdnav and libdvdcss2.  These should be available from the debian and deb-multimedia repositories or from the repos of 
whateverdistro you use.  

Second of all, that command is wrong.  It's 

cvlc dvd://1 /dev/sr0

or whatever the path to your dvd device is.  

The commercial dvd will only work with libdvdcss2 and that is the one that is available from deb-multimedia and/or ubuntu, whichever distro you use.  

Hope this helps.
