I don't think there's anything aside from the obvious size/bitrate
differences that differentiates the 5/9 GB versions of these disks-- I
can probably try to assemble a selection of HD-DVD and Blu ray samples
in the 100 MB range that represent various PIDs, codecs, and encoding
options if that would be of any help.  I did patch my play-of-choice's
DTS parser with kostya's changes and find that playing the DTS core
from DTS-HD MA is indeed working, so I apologize for my earlier noise
about that not working.

The primary non-encryption issue at the moment with blu ray appears to
then be the TS demuxer, which does not recognize most of the blu ray
pids.  I just patch my local copy to recognize them as the various
patches fielded on the list in the past have not been considered
acceptable.  I got the impression then that the TS demuxer needed
from-scratch rewriting rather than continuing to add codecs.
