Thanks a lot! I'll take a glance at the gallery when I have the time,
currently I'm fiddling with themedmenu's and lcd's ;-)

There was a thread about it in July or soemthing like that. I couldn't get
the device unlock working when running the mythfrontend as a non-root
user. I was under the impression that it worked for you and Xavier...
Anyway, I call a small setuid program that performs the
ioctl(m_DeviceHandle, CDROM_LOCKDOOR, 0) when this same ioctl fails in 
MythCDROMLinux::unlock(). I can now eject the cd when I want to.
I'm not sure if this is an acceptable solution, or if there are better
solutions (without an external program) that will work.
