I am going to buy a blu ray burner (finally decided on the Pioneer BDR-2207; if anyone knows a reason I shouldn’t get this one, please speak up!) and I plan to use it to backup my blu ray movies.
Is it possible to rip a Blu Ray movie to the hdd and then burn it to a regular (or a dual layer) dvd? If so, will the resulting movie look about the same when viewing? (My Dad wants to borrow my Star Wars (which I only own in Blu Ray, and would rather not loan out), if I rip it to a dvd, will Dad really notice a difference in playback quality?)
