 What I've done to create the ISO's.[[BR]]

 1: I've copied my DVD to a directory.[[BR]]
 2: run mkisofs -o "mybackup.iso" /path/to/my/dvdfiles[[BR]]
 3: Copy iso to mythtv video folder, and try to play it.[[BR]]

 I mounted the iso file - and made sure the /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO and
 /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP files exist. (Though, the filenames are shown in
 lower case on Linux...I guess this is because ISO9660 isn't case-
