    Heh, again most of that could be resolved with another cheap DVD player. Personally I haven't touched a DVD player in years and I expect most of the XBMC crowd doesn't play DVD's (most dump or rip them to another format) anymore either so I doesn't surprise me that there isn't much effort being put into DVD playback anymore.

    Lol. I'm good Got my install of Mint 10.04 with vlc. Works great. Ok so it boots in 20 - 30 seconds instead of 5. Not too much of a biggie for me. Put in disc: auto play - straight to the menu - play movie or browse the special features - all good

    I've set Mint to have nothing on the desktop so it isn't so much like using a computer, but I do really like xbmc's interface I must say. (Oh and for those who want to do it this way don't use any Ubuntu based distro past 10.04. DVD's don't mount; or even show up; automatically. Some users have had the problem on 10.04 as well. Works for me though)

    I'm good with that... as long as it's all legally obtained
