vlc spdif out and adding a frontend
I just finished installing mythdora 5 and I am doing some final tweaks to get the system configured to my needs. This is the first time I use a myth distro, I normally install Fedora and add mythtv myself. So far I do really like mythdora :)
First thing I noticed was that VLC is used for playing videos, I normally use mplayer. Most videos I have do contain a DTS of Dolby Digital track but now VLC just plays stereo although I selected the spdif output in the VLC gui. How can I change this?
I want to add my my xbox (old one) as a frontend, what is the proper way to do this with mythdora? Normally I would have to do some mysql hacking....
BTW it seems that the mysql root user does not have a password set, I thinks this should be done by the installer.
