OK, this is a different approach but I plan on using the Dacal carousel. 
.  It will of course require moving the disc from the carousel to the 
dvd player, but I dont think that is a big deal.  And on top of that 
Dacal is coming out with a version with a built in dvd player.  I just 
dont want to loose the quality or disk space.
