I've never actually used that DVD jukebox specifically, but note that
once you get to real SCSI devices, there is a standardised media
changer command set that is part of the SCSI-3 spec (SMC/SMC-2/SMC-3)
 and any modern media changer I've seen supports it, and linux, or
at least the "mtx" command (zd variant, but that's the one you always
get these days) in turn supports sending those commands just fine.
You'd need to check with the manufacturer, but I'd say that it would be
unlikely they'd use something other than the standard.
