Hey Ma.

Thanks for your advice.
But it ain't working. I have made the changes in these files - but still 
have the same problem which I need to close mythFrontend and from GNOME 
unmount the DVD.
So this ain't working and don't know why it'll not work.

hopefully you'll be able to come with the rigth solution.
