I don't quite understand why this should be an issue.  BD-Rs just use UDF,
do they not?  He's asking if you can archive onto Blurays with mytharchive,
which shouldn't be an issue (albeit you can only play it on another mythtv
system).  If you're just recording the data+metadata to the BD-R, then
what's the problem?
