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?
