Thanks to all the contributors for all the comments. So far I have 
installed MediaPlayer and that seems to work fine, so I'll probably 
stick to that for now. Although Matt, I am also going to be getting into 
MythTV shortly so if you pick up any good info, don't keep it to 
yourself ;-)

As an aside, if anyone is interested I'm going to put up a note here 
"just for fun" about how to get Beryl (The compiz fork) running on LFS. 
It does look great once it is running and I doubt now I'll ever go back 
to a plain old 2D desktop environment!
