Unhappy Pink Floyd Endless River - Audio BluRay won't play

I am a hardcore Pink Floyd fan, and I am the proud owner of of the deluxe BluRay version of their new album, "The Endless River", Just released today (11/10) in hi-def 96Khz 24-bit 5.1 sound.
Alas, I cannot find any software on any of my 3 HTPC machines that will play it!
I've tried:
CyberLink PowerDVD version 13, fully licensed professional version
CyberLink Power Starter BluRay Disc Suite
XBMC 13.2 Gotham
VLC 2.1.5
Media-Player Classic with k_lite codec pack
Windows Media Center - Win 7
Windows Media Center - Win 8.1
SPlayer (latest)
AllPlayer v 6.0 (latest)
NVidia Player
AnyDVD HD, Fully Licensed version 5.1, about 3 years old
AnyDVD HD, version 7.5 trialware
DVD Fab, version 8, fully licensed professional version
NeroVision, version 9, fully licensed professional version
PotPlayer v. 1.6
NONE of them work!
But I took it to my sister's house and tried it in her el-cheapo bottom-of-line LG player from Walmart and it worked fine!

The main files on the disc are in the \BDMV\STREAM folder and are in .m2ts format, typical. I'm sure I'm missing a codec, but on all 3 machines and with all this software installed? I checked one of the m2ts files in GSpot, but GSpot hasn't been updated since 2007 so it didn't recognize it. The only clues I have is an error message in PotPlayer:
+ majortype: MEDIATYPE_Stream {E436EB83-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}
+ subtype: MEDIASUBTYPE_MPEG2_TRANSPORT {E06D8023-DB46-11CF-B4D1-00805F6CBBEA}

I googled both of those GUIDs hoping that would lead me to a codec, but no luck.

It sounds like the software players need some kind of update to play this BD.
