IMO the best bet at burning will be with one of the upcoming HD DVD burners. No need to worry about standalones not playing BDMV content or not playing BD-R at all; if you didn't hear about that, do some research - newer BD players are crippled when it comes to playing back recorded discs due to piracy concerns. The HD DVD burners will be cheaper, too - and you can transcode everything that was on Blu-Ray to HD DVD with the right software! All standalone HD DVD players will play your content without issue, which is far from the case with the mess of DRM we see on Blu-Ray. Not to mention you won't have to worry about security concerns with executables w/ BD+ Advanced Countermeasure.

This drive was announced earlier in the year, and was delayed - but is now apparently on track for release this fall:
We're all in it together.
