Can you please tell me what table/field/parameter I should be modifying in 
sql in order for me to play .iso file via mplayer or xine? The reason I'm 
modifying it in the database is because, I don't have a keyboard in my 
mythbox. Also, can you guys please paste what parameters xine or mplayer 
should have in order to play .iso files? 

Thanks in advance!
