I am not sure what you mean by "honors the DVD's men system" but haven't 
you yet tried xine? (Install xineui.) If you also use TV on your system 
you need xine (or kaffeine, but xine is better - except that kaffeine 
can record your programs whereas xine won't). You can also try vlc - but 
for most things xine is better :-) .

Decisions, decisions....... :-) .

Start with xine(ui).
