I'm interested in finding a DVD player I can control from my PC, but as I research the options I'm finding that my own knowledge is littered with holes and blind spots. I'm looking for some general advice on the technology that will help me search smarter.


What are my options? What sort of feature set am I looking for on the DVD player? I know an RS-232 port will get the job done; is there anything else I should be looking for?


(Getting an IR transmitter and turning my PC into a really big remote isn't an option -- I've seen those boxes and while they're quite cool, they don't really meet my needs. Ditto for any DVD drive/video card combo; while it would make my life much easier if I could just plug the TV directly into my computer, alas, that's not an option, either.)


My deepest thanks in advance for any advice or insight anybody has to offer.


-- Pete
