Yes - at least, that is what it says in the configuration screen..

The picture and audiofiles system correctly shows file names and progress 
as do the menu system, and the clock is running otherwise - except during 
DVD playing, where it is entirely blank.

The 'Big Clock' option does not work either - it goofes up the display. 
Maybe it has sometihing to do with my problem?

If it can be solved by using another DVD-player, then that could be an 
option. Which other DVD-player can use lirc and lcdproc?
