That aside, I bought the disk, and I am not distributing it.  I just 
want to play it.  Linux is my PVR, and Myth is what I want to use.
I am looking for solutions or things to try, as many other will want to 
do this as Blu-Ray drives come down in price. Since when do we have to 
even get into licensing and "own" etc.... in this forum.  This is all 
pretty grey in Myth.
