I'm also having grief with KDE trying attach my audio CDs as I rip them. I
think I have ruined my DVD Writer as the last few CD rips resulted in
"static" being saved to mp3 files..
I can't seem to get KDE from trying to access the CD whenever I load it into
the drive - It might be time to try Xfce...
NVidia's 3D drivers do not like MythTV at all within the channel guide (
1.0-9746 IIRC) with my NVidia onboard 6150 video card. I just disable 3D,
and it has been working fine. That's either NVidia or Myth (not sure which)
I really do like MythTV (when it works, and it did for over a month before
this meltdown). I hope to get through this in short order, but it's a long
list, and the database thing really has me worried :(
