Just reading thru the trac ticket, it looks like a similar idea. I'll have a read thru the patches...

On the topic of the media monitor - I originally tried to use this, but
ran into a few problems, one of which was that the media monitor
couldn't always figure out what the active window was to post messages
to. This resulted in device connections not being reported correctly...

Hi Dunk. I haven't had time to look at your patch yet,
but the approach:

sounds similar to what Eskil Olsen proposed in #2598
(that I haven't been brave enough to commit yet)

See cdstore.patch in http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/2598
