Same here. I love xine, but havnt figured out any of the keymappings
for LIRC yet. I'm using the internal player now, which is nice because
it acts just like watching live/recorded TV, but does get a little
flakey with DVDs on occasion. I will switch to xine as soon as I get
some free cycles to play with configuring it corrrectly.
