    I want to get an external Blu-ray drive for my 2009 Mac mini HTPC running 10.6.8 because it's a cheaper solution than a standalone BD player.

    I know that I will need third-party software to actually play BD video, but are there any problems getting 10.6.8 to recognise BD drives in the first place, or are they plug and play like any other USB optical drive?

    They work fine, you just need to download some other software to do anything with them.
