[QUOTE=twitami;2131358]I am not making any DVDs from them, it is only for ripping to HD for my upcoming super awesome DVD server (once I figure out what the hell I am going to use…Drobo, HP Mediasmart, etc)
Leaning towards the new XBMC for Windows for the software part, it is really slick looking.
Need to decide for sure if I just want to rip to VOB and leave it at that, or some other format.[/QUOTE]
rip to vob if you have space & if you watch on big screen - 500gb will hold about 100 mian movies. that way there’s no hassles with preserving subtitles, coping with out-of sync etc problems that some people experience when altering the format. VOB will stream OK on a good wireless g connection.
any other (compressed) format ccan only make the pircture a little worse, it can never be better than the original, only smaller in fale size, but as hard disc space is so cheap, whay bother ?
