It was Surfs Up. And let me correct myself. When I said it didn't
play, I wasn't entirely accurate. If you let it play through all of
the previews, it would work fine. But if you tried to skip past them
in order to get to the main menu, it would drop you back to the myth
menu. I was sure it was a Arccos style copy protection mechanism until
I ripped it with myth and it ripped fine (no ddrescue necessary). The
ripped ISO exhibits the same problem while skipping. Checked the logs
and saw the libdvdnav error
