I did and it didn't help it. xvinfo gives me output so I think xv is the 
way to go. A p700 should easily play dvds as I did play them on slower 
systems. Maybe some kernel options not activated? I'm pretty clueless 
atm :-(
And my girlfriend is going to switch back to windows if she can't watch 
DVDs... aaaarrrrg ;-)
