Just a note that the Linuxtv.org pages have been updated and more 
information added. There is some new information regarging CSS 
there as well (check the header file for IOCTLs). Disc keys appear 
to be 2048 bytes and Title Keys 2064 bytes. Not 40 bits (5 bytes)!

This could be explaining why everyone seems to be having trouble 
with the CSS code that was released. It simply isn't grabbing the 
right data (or right amount of it).

Anyway: http://linuxtv.org

You are a little bit wrong. Title keys are 5 Bytes, the disc keys for
'standalone' drives is 2064 Bytes.

I wonder why noone discovered the size of the disckey before, because
Andrew Veliath's dvd ioctl patches have the following source line
inside:

       memcpy (s->disckey.value, &buf[4], 2048);


But one thing to think about: Even if a size of 10 bytes for the disc
key was wrong, this 10 bytes should have been the same every time. So
i assume there is another error in the disc key readout.

There are a couple of small errors in the code, I got it reporting
consistent disk keys last night. I'll post the updated code to the LiViD
list.
