I don't know if the feature of autoplaying a dvd is not working for many
of you, but for me is not, and I have been trying to do a lot to get it
If I am not wrong Evan, you have to go to the menu and push Play DVD in
order to watch your DVD.
If that is not working check you command to play the dvd, check that you
have the requiered programs (xine or mplayer), and try again.
