Thanks for the info, Paulo.  I'm not very au fait with codecs, which is why I 
asked.  It's not really 'my thing', but it is nice, sometimes to be able to 
play a disk.  Actually, to be really honest, it just peeves me that someone 
can try to stop me viewing something that I've legally bought :-)  It's a bit 
like saying that I can buy a book, but I can't read it on the train, in bed 
or in the bath :-)
