I'm gearing up my box for full-on family use and trying to view (and/or rip) DVDs.

I'm not having a great success rate. A common issue is being stuck on the "Commentary does not reflect the opinions of the studio...blah blah blah" page. Sometimes I'll get a loop between the FBI warning and that. Sometimes I can get the video to play, but only for a ways.

With Disney, I sort of figured it was DRM (even on an old Schoolhouse Rock DVD!) but I seem to be getting a lot of it. I haven't been able to play Duckman, the BBC Earth series (except the first disc), and other odd and seemingly unconnected DVDs.

In the logs I get DVDISORead errors.

OK, slight update with rips: Sometimes the rips appear to work but then they lock up (to the point where we have to reboot the GUI) on the opening screen, or the video doesn't show--but sometimes they work just fine.

Any thoughts?
