I went bluray with my latest myth setup and I use makemkv, which creates mkv for
dvd or bluray and work prefect with mythtv. Just make sure you have vdpau
capable card to support the decoding.

Looking for help from those using Blu-Ray drives:
I have upgraded my BE with a new MB which has no IDE ports; therefore, my DVD
ROM/burner is no longer of any use. I am considering replacing it with a
Blu-Ray burner but am hesitant to spend the extra dollars if I can only use it
for DVDs. I know there has been a lot of activity in 0.24 and pre-0.25 to
support BD but my question is:
Will I be able to play rented Blu-Ray disks through MythTV?
If not, (besides backups) what benefit would I receive by spending the extra
money on a BD burner vs a DVD burner?
