 Using most up-to-date subversion checkout as of 09/27/2005.

 I am getting my MythTV box setup and experimenting with all of the
 features and ran into a small snag. I was trying to use the auto-detect
 feature for CD/DVD insertion to automatically start playing a DVD. I was
 using the "Gone In 60 Seconds" DVD for my experiments, and for some reason
 it would not auto start the DVD although it was automounting). I quit the
 frontend and noticed the log showing MythTV was looking for a few
 directories to determine the CD type (/VIDEO_TS, /vcd, /svcd). I looked at
 my mounted DVD and the directory was actually /video_ts instead of
 /VIDEO_TS. Whether this was caused by something odd in the mounting
 process or a poorly authored DVD, I am not sure. I tried the Die Hard 3
 Special Edition DVD and had the same results. I did some copy-and-paste in
 the source for libs/libmyth/mythcdrom.cpp and added a check for /video_ts
 in addition to the other three checks. Now the DVD auto-plays beautifully.

 I'm not sure if any others have had this problem, but it might be useful
 to add the code that checked for the lower case version of the directory
 too. I can send a patch file if desired, but I'm sure you can figure out
 how I did it, if you do decide to add this to the core code.
