[mythtv-users] Eject option on Optical menu

I can see from the logs that the Eject option on the DVD menu performs a 
umount command. This does unmount the disk and makes it possible for me 
to manually eject it, but it doesn't actually automatically eject. What 
do I need to do to make this work?

The relevant lines from /etc/fstab look like this:

/dev/cdrom             /mnt/cd   iso9660   user,noauto,unhide      0      0
/dev/dvd               /mnt/dvd  udf       user,noauto,unhide      0      0

I've got the monitor CD/DVD setting checked, as this is the only way I 
can see to get MythGallery to view a DVD or CD containing images or 
video files. This is something else I'd like to know more about: is it 
possible to get the gallery into this mode from the main menu, or does 
it only happen in response to inserting a disk (or on detection of a 
disk at startup of the frontend)?
