    myMusic and myVideos.

    Currently the handling and usage of CDs and DVDs is a bit inconsistent. We have in myMusic and myVideos an eject button. But only in myVideo we have a "play DVD" button. In myMusic we have to add the CD / DVD Drive to the shares, in myVideo not (but we can, this works well with DVDs). I like the option off adding the drives to the shares.

    So what i think would be great:

    - remove eject and "play DVD" buttons from myVideos
    - remove eject button from myMusic
    - the user has to add the desired drive(s) to his shares
    - when he selects a drive in MP and hits ok a dialogbox appears which asks him:
    "Play CD /DVD"
    "Eject Drive"

    I think this would be really nice. :) But this is just my humble opinion.

    Keep up the great work!

    And when we are talking about DVD playback, if i'm not mistaken MediaPortal plays DVD's from harddisk like normal videofiles (.ifo) and not like DVD's.
