    Is it possible to extract DVDs to your HDD, and then burn multiple DVDs with full Video_TS quality (preferably but not necessarily including the DVD menus) to a single Blu-Ray disc, such that a standalone Blu-Ray player would be able to play all the content?

    well, if you are able to pull the MPEG2 streams and AC3 audio out of the .vob files, then you could potentially author a new disc (you'd have to create a menu) containing all of the movies. The problem would be extracting those streams. The only way to do that right now would be to rip with MacTheRipper and then re-encode with MPEGstreamclip. I don't know of any utilities that will extract the audio and video from a .vob without re-encoding everything.

    There is definitely no way to keep the menus.

    BD is just a disc format. It doesn't necessarily mean hi-def. That's just what it's main use has been. Studios could release entire seasons in SD on one BD. That'd be sweet.
