Lot's of people have mentioned this.  It's on my list to things to look 
in to, however it's not very high on that list, as I almost record live tv.

There's a setting you can use to automagicly start the player for DVD 
ans VCDs.  You need to turn on media monitoring in the general section 
for MythTV, then set the default action for the disks in MythDVD.  The 
default for DVD / VCD is to simply show the DVD playback menu in Myth 
but they can be set to start the player automagicly.

xmame doesn't respond to *any* lirc events.  I'd love to be able to use 
my remote for it!
