And here are the test case steps as a quickstart guide for the latter
(I have also tsMuxer and K3b screen shots that may be added):

1. Source HDV input video file:

2. Copy MPEG-2 video and transcode MP2 audio to Blu-ray LPCM and remux 
to mts
     ffmpeg -i  hdv01.m2t -c:v copy -c:a pcm_bluray -mpegts_m2ts_mode 1 

3. Use tsMuxer to remux the mts file and create a Blu-ray ISO file with 
Blu-ray video standard UDF 2.50

Input file: /home/terje/Videoklipp/hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray.mts

     selected: * Blu-ray ISO
     File name: /home/terje/Videoklipp/hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray.iso

Start Muxing
It takes just 5 sec to remux and finish the blu-ray iso ready for burning

Verify file sizes
du -sh hdv01*
2,0G    hdv01.m2t
2,2G    hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray.mts
2,2G    hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray.iso

4. Burn the ISO to BD-RE disc K3b/Cdrecord:

K3b: Tools menu > Burn CD-image (!)
- Type of image file is not recognizable. Do you want to burn it anyway?
   Yes (repeated twice)
   Select image to burn: /tmp/hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray.udfs
- Type of image file is not recognizable. Do you want to burn it anyway?
   Yes (repeated twice)

   Burn medium (found): Complete data BD-R
   Verify image type: Auto recognize
   Select burning Speed: 2x (for BD50-RE DL)
   Select Burning program: cdrecord
   Velg navn på plate (hovedbilde, evt. prosjekt): hdv01_m2t_pcm_bluray

5. Verify the burned disc safe compliance with Blu-ray video standard 
UDF 2.5
