So is MoviX2 the be all and end all DVD player? fraid knot, but its not MoviX2 fault, but Mplayer. When researching this an issue, it appears MPlayer never wanted to be the best DVD player for Linux it just has the ability to play DVDs, there appear to be many other specific DVD players for Linux, I just need to find them and mix them into a CD based distro.
Oh and festival has gone weird, I tried to create a siteinit.scm file as per the online help to increase the volume but it stopped working so I removed the file and ... it still did not work, but gave unpredictable failures :(
Before I did any quietening of the PC, we could not leave it on over night because the noise was to much. After the the Zalman Flower and the Quiet PSU the PC could be left on but the door must be kept shut, now the PC can be left on WITH the door OPEN all night !!
The above was written sometime ago, I have been very lazy expect some serious catch up !
