I've heard talk about people using Xine instead of mplayer for playback 
of DVD's and was wondering how one would configure MythTV to use it.  I 
would love to be able to access the menu's from my DVD's and would 
welcome any help anyone could give :)  By the way, does anyone know if 
it's possible to use Xine as the backend for MythVideo as well as MythDVD?
