Hi Daniel, 

I'll try your xine settings tonight. 

Last night, I tried to change mplayer settings in mythtv settings table. I 
created a matrix.iso file of Matrix Revolution. I placed the matrix.iso in 
/video/dvd. I went to mythvideo and saw a matrix yellow folder. :) However, 
when I clicked it, I saw a small rectangle with droplets on the left and 
some info on the right. IIRC, runtime was 0, year was a question mark, and 
so on. I clicked it again and saw the text "Loading ..." but it went away so 
quickly. It never got played. 

Any ideas what I am missing?
