No, the original m2ts with the analyze/probe options gives
    Stream #0:0[0x1011]: Video: h264 (High) (HDMV / 0x564D4448), yuv420p, 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 23.98 fps, 23.98 tbr, 90k tbn, 47.95 tbc

So is it possible to use the -colormatrix and other color options 
as input options?  Is that what I should be doing?  Incidentally, 
those don’t seem to be in the documentation at all.

pass has been working for me - maybe they fixed that in x265 v. 1.8?
