I was assuming that the problem was linux/CSS vs windows (which seems to
work) as opposed to being a problem in the myth dvd playback... I haven't
tried using any other players.
You are right mplayer etc would be much more straightforward than VM. I've
had some trouble with lirc + mplayer in the past. I don't have a keyboard
attached so lirc is critical to me but I'll give it another try.
