    Can anyone suggest a codec for playing BluRay discs through Windows Media Center?

    If you want to play the full disc then you need player software, not just a codec.

    (Blu-rays can use three different encoding systems for the video -VC-1, H264 and MPEG2 - and they can use PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby True HD, DTS HD MA or DTS HD HR for their audio. They carry all of this in a modified MPEG2 transport stream - m2ts - file)

    Most people here use either PowerDVD or Total Media Theater - both of which have Media Center-friendly interfaces - for Blu-ray replay.
