I think there was a thread here a while ago discussing something along 
these lines.

Do you or anyone else have any links to overviews (or more detailed) of 
what approaches are used?  I'm not interested in circumventing 
copy-protection but if it's a case of 'we'll make this sector bad then 
add DVD code to avoid that sector' and Myth is still hitting that 
sector, I would venture it's a problem of Myth not following the 
instructions on the DVD.  Fixing that is not circumventing 
copy-protection, it's making Myth do what the DVD says it should.

Whether it's an easy fix is another matter :)
