This information is certainly available out there, but I didn't find it back when I was working on solving it, so I wrote up my notes as a little guide.
The goal: Take Blu-Ray discs and archive them to my file server, then stream them to the PS3 in full HD.
Limitations: This guide goes over AVC encoded discs, not VC-1 or MPEG2
The process: I'm using Cars, an AVC encoded blu-ray disc.
Cars is an AACS protected Blu-Ray title from Disney. The following
guide is what can be done to rip the film onto a file server, then
serve the video to a Playstation 3.
a. AnyDVD HD from Slysoft, to remove AACS protection
b. TsRemux v.0.0.20
Step 1: Rip the disc.
I used a Phillips SPD7000P Blu-Ray drive with AnyDVD HD. Right click
the AnyDVD HD icon, and select rip video to disk. I let it do its
thing, and it ripped all 38.5 gigs off the disc.
Step 2: Locate the movie.
Looking at the raw video data, in CARS_USA/BDMV/STREAM/, I picked out
the largest video file. 00060.m2ts, 28.5GB.
Step 3: Re-mux the video.
Open up TsRemux. Load up 0060.m2ts, and set an output file
name of your choice. I chose something descriptive -
"Cars avc lpcm.m2ts".
A box will be populated with the elementary
streams found on the ripped data. Choose "AVC Video Stream #17"
and "Dolby Digital Audio Stream #1". Choose "M2TS" as the output
format. Keep other options as their defaults. Press the "Remux"
button, and let it go.
Optionally, you can select the "Lossless PCM Audio Stream # 0" instead
of the Dolby Digital audio track for lossless audio glory, but it
will cost you about 6GB of size in the end file (27GB vs. 21.3GB).
Step 4: Load it in TwonkyMedia.
I used TwonkyMedia 4.4.4, installed in a VMWare client on my file
server, but it can be run on most modern Windows machines. I
shared a network directory where I had the file and set up other
configuration options in Twonky.
You can certainly use other programs to serve the media, or copy it
to the playstation 3 itself. In my case, I use my file server as
a media server.
Step 5: Find other content.
In the Cars case, there are a couple of other interesting files in
there for the kids - the shorts. 00036.m2ts is "Matar and the Ghost
Light", 00037.m2ts is "One Man Band", a pixar short, 00038.m2ts is
the "Epilogue", and 00052.m2ts is "Bounding Cars", a Cars-oriented
version of an old Pixar short.
This other content is all in either AVC or mpeg2 format with a single
audio track which will stream to the PS3 without any remuxing, as
the main film needed.

shouldn't this be in some sort of ripping section?? this section is for conversion to AVI/MP4/MKV/WMV...
Moving to Blu-ray to Blu-ray Forum.
