After extensive testing with various BRD's and re-testing the same content over a direct attached USB drive, I've concluded that it's the real hi-def video (30Mbit+) in combination with high bandwith DTS-HD-MA (4500Kbs+) that kills it. If I select the 'normal' DTS soundtrack, it can take a 4500Kbs track, but not much more.
Mike, have you tried a Raspberry Pi 2 with the same Blu-ray discs? This issue is the main thing that's stopping me from buying a Pi, and if the new model solves it, I'd love to know about it.
Also, do you have a list of titles that trigger the problem, or some test files that others could use to reproduce it?
