My son has brought me some DVDs to watch. I haven't as yet got a normal DVD player so can only watch them through my PC. The problem is that he has a multi-region DVD player and a number of the DVDs he has brought me are not Region 2. I get a message that my system is set to Region 2 and that I need to change the region setting. Then I get a message that I can only change the region setting a further 4 times whereupon it will lock and then cannot be unlocked. This smacks of Big Brother to me! I've looked and found that there is some software out there to work around this problem but I am mindfull of advice I read on here previously; to check here first.
