Thanks for the suggestion Philip. I did a lot of research before buying
"1-Click DVD," including the two you mention. I use the decrypter "Any DVD"
in tandem with "1-Click" and I'm quite happy with them ("Any DVD" is a
marvelous package that allows you to do lots of other things as well, like
override region restrictions, etc.).
