I'm all for further jukebox development, but FWIW, be prepared to rip your media disc by disc. Maybe it's just my unit, but I had nothing but trouble with my Sony VGP-XL1B and now it just collects dust. I found it to be much more efficient to just put 4 dvd drives in my core. Even if you get around all the timeout issues, unattended ripping is flawed because lmce only decrypts CSS, not ARccOS or RipGuard. Unfortunately, discs encrypted with anything other than CSS do not get skipped; they just cause the ripping process to choke.
On the other hand, if you already know or are willing to spend the time investigating what encryption scheme each of your dvds uses, you could throw all the CSS dvds in the jukebox and rip the rest manually.
