This is why I said to play the /original/ disc in MythTV and see if it 
works.  If so, the problem is /definitely/ the dodgy rip, likely created 
by the broken/non-compliant disc.  MythTV plays DVDs properly.  I'm 
saying the rip is likely broken more than the broken-by-design (but 
still playable by most players--including, probably, MythTV) disc.
