On my Windows XP with MiKTeX it is not working having only ttf, only otf 
or both together.
With otf I get >Th \"A<, and with ttf >Th Th<

Isn't a problem that the font is in multiple files: Re, Bd, BI, It, C_Re
Shouldn't they be called by something like:
\fontspec[SmallCapsFont=Linux Libertine O Capitals,BoldFont=Linus 
Libertine O Bold,....]{Linux Libertine O}
