Geeze, I just set up DVD support under MythTV and was it EASY!

The hardest part was finding a small yet robust player.  All those
interested should look at the ogle player at:

After I got it installed (only took a few minutes), I editted the oglerc
file to make the player start in fullscreen mode.  Then I quickly added a
'DVD' option to mythfrontend (again, only took a coulple minutes).  I just
needed to figure out the whole remote control issue and then I can get rid
of my old DVD player :)

I also installed MythMusic this morning and mounted my [large] MP3
collection via samba (on a Win2K box).  It's the first time I've looked at
MythMusic...and it looks pretty nice!  Really easy to select

Hmmm...with PVR, DVD, CD, and MP3 support, I'm almost there!  As soon as I
figure out how to integrate a remote control into the system I can
actually rewire my entertainment system!

The convergence box really is a reality, eh?
