Now that you mention it, I did see that addition and updated my system
for that.  For disks that play but had stuttering, A Christmas Story
was the worse (at the Warner Brother's logo at the beginning).  The
patch seemed to smooth that out a bit but it did stutter briefly just
before going to the main menu.

I agree that the issues we see probably are due to either poorly
mastered DVD's (as I believe are the case in the workout DVD's my wife
has) or due to the attempts at out of standard errors to aggravate the
consumer (I mean protect the content from ever being pirated).

At any rate Richard, thanks for the patch and your help!  Maybe you
should be come an Official MythTV Dev =)
