[mythtv-users] Certain DVD's start then go back to frontend

My wife has a handful of workout DVD's that start then dump back to
the frontend.  Several briefly show the DVD menu but others have a
black screen before dropping to the front end.  Looking through the
logs with libav,playback,audio option I'm now wondering if it is audio
related.  Here is what I see at the time of the error:

What I'm wondering about is the PCM channels out of bounds and the
id(PCM_DVD) aborting for reason -22.  Many other DVD's work fine and
at these workout ones have issues regardless of being the physical DVD
or a .iso file.

Any suggestions?  Here are my frontend options:
