Waht does exactly mean "main profile"? Because this could probably explain many issues I was having with PS3MS so far...
The profile is like a subset of features within the H.264 spec:
I got it wrong though, Bravia and PS3 will play High profile, but only up to Level 4.1.

It looks good for the packaging but I think the problem is that at this stage, the sort of customers who try to get this working and read forums like this are one tiny fraction of a percent, so Sony don't invest much effort in getting it right. Plus, they don't want to make it too easy for people to watch pirated content of course. Then again, did any person on the planet use a twin tape deck for "dubbing"?

Maybe one day. Perhaps Sony owners are less likely to risk bricking their TVs and so no one wants to take the first investigative steps.
I notice that despite their legal obligation under the GPL to publish the source code that they have derived from open source projects, the source from the 5500 series is conspicuously absent:
