and as I posted earlier, this will never work... for bluray playback
you need to use a mounted disk, not the device disk

and from everything you have mentioned so far, none of it points to a
myth issue. MythTV needs to know where you bluray disk is mounted, if
you can't provide a static path to that mounted disk, that doesn't
change with every new disk: that's your issue.

if you configured myth to play bluray from /mnt/bluray, this is where
you have to mount the BD disk to.

you could achieve this quite easily with udev rules..
