Perfect.  This is exactly what I would want.  I am assuming I can just 
play them from this menu as well.

I am pretty excited about this product personally.  I would love to have 
most/all of my DVDs available all the time.

I would hope a dialog could be started in the devel list and gain 
interest in this.  If myth will support it I will definitely buy one.

I do have some questions.

1) How does this work with a seperate frontend/backend solution?  I am 
hoping it would be on my backend machine so the DVDs would somehow be 
available to all frontends.  Is this the case?  I assume only one 
frontend could access it at a time though.

2) Will this changer read dual or single layer disks that you write 

3) Are your patches available?
