[mythtv-users] MythDVD woes (mplayer vs xine)

Not being satisfied with the lack of dvd menu support in mplayer I opted
to apt-get xine and integrate it as the replacement player for dvds in
Myth. However, unlike with mplayer which appeared seamlessly when
loading, xine kicks back to the desktop whilst loading before jumping
into full screen mode. Is this a problem that everyone experiences with
using it as an alternative?? A further problem I have experienced
sporadically, is when quitting out of xine, myth is not refocused

I've looked through previous posts and not found any reference to such
issues, but I can't find another way around the problem.
