I did the scan and it found all my videos.  Now, when I go into MythVideo,  I see
a list of the .iso files I have in the /var/dvd directory.  But, when I try to play one
of them, nothing happens.  I get the message below when trying to use Mplayer.
When I try to use the Internal Viewer,  it puts up that black screen that looks like the
start of a movie for about 2 seconds, then goes to the tan background color for 5
seconds, then back to the menu.  The console has messages complaining that it
can't open the /dev/dvd device.

Also, /var/dvd/BEERFEST.iso is an NFS mount on the mythfrontend client.
