      Works fine on my FC3 frontend:

    For DVD:     xine --no-splash -pfhq -I -D -B -S volume=90 dvd://
    For video:     xine --no-splash -pfhq -I -D -B -S volume=90 %s

-pfhq    Play automatically, full screen,  hide gui, quit on completion

-I     No Gui   (-g is alternative, hide gui or this might actually not be
needed due to h option above?)
-D    Deinterlace
-B    Borderless
-S volume=90     Equalise volume with rest of Mythtv
