Ok, I am building my system up now. thinking about the design and getting stuff in order.
Got a few questions (with more to come I am sure).
What is the best way to rip my DVD's ? I have DVDFab6, and can rip the full movie with almost no compression. I want to have full 5.1 sound and full resolution. Do you then convert it to another file format for size sake ?
I am projecting onto a 120" screen so VQ is important.
Is there anything available to upconvert my files to 1080p via HDMI ?
I use MakeMKV as it is fast and makes the MKV file at full resolution...no loss in quality. Of course the file takes up disc space...but you did say "full resolution". I prefer MKV format to the DVD folder format, because I dont have to navigate DVD menus, etc. The problem of course is being able to do fast forward and rewind is clunky....but honestly I don't use it that much to kill me and I am hopeful that as things mature this funcationality will improve (after all MKV is THE container of choice! ;) )
