Ripping DVD's main movie without loss of quality


So, after deciding I want to create a Media Centre to view all of my DVD's on, I researched into it and came across Plex. It seems really cool and it's all installed and set up now ready for me to import my DVD's.

Now the issue I have is getting the DVD's from the disk to the Mac!

The process I've TRIED using is
DVD rip in Ripit and then Handbrake to just get the movie file itself, as I don't want all the DVD menu's and the warnings etc.

Ripit works FINE, perfectly infact, exactly as the DVD itself does. However when I look at the verson of the movie after handbrake, EVEN though the quality is exactly the same, the colours are WASHED OUT, and are under contrasted.


Can someone also just please tell me a way of getting:

My hard copy DVD collection onto my computer/mac JUST being the main movie and with NO quality or audio loss, uncompressed if you like.

EDIT - If any help at all, I'm looking to then run this through Plex and play through a 42" tv with 5.1 surround sound in my room. So making sure it's supported in Plex is a good start!

It's doing my head in!
