I was reading that some dvd players have a parental control feature, actually I've read about two different kinds. One just lets you "lock out" certain videos so that they cannot be played without a password. But the one I was interested in was one that said that it would edit videos during playback. For instance it could play a video with an R rating as a PG-13, or something like that, but that the disk itself had to be set up for that. Does anyone know if this is common for movies? Are there a lot of movies that come with this feature, or should I not bother getting a DVD player that offers this feature?
Thanks everyone. This is a great site!

I beleive the one your interested in is part of the DVD spec but the DVD it self would have to have this feature. AFAIK, their are no DVD's that have been implemented in this way. THe only parental control currently available is the the other one you mentioned - the password lockout.
