Sigh. Why is it always the thing you are inspired to try _after_ you
send out a request for help that works?
Seems it can't play the playlist for the CD when the CD isn't in the
drive, but it _can_ play the playlist for the ripped files if I select
that _instead_ ;-).
I would appreciate knowing what the keystrokes are for the rest of the
MythMusic controls, but I'll eventually find them by keyboard bashing
