I think you can setup any media player to play DVDs, since (I believe) 
MythTV has a setting somewhere that just asks you what media player to 
use plus which flags to pass.  And IIRC the default is just MPlayer + 
all the nice little arguments.

And if you can get LIRC or xev + remote to work with xine, you should be 
good to go.

I'll have to try it out. :)
