So I just set-up a Synology DS1511+ NAS with 15TB storage in RAID 6. I am looking to rip my whole DVD collection (200+ dvds). I would like to put my collection on my NAS and have it available on my home network. I would like to be able to play media for any laptop, ipad, computer, home theater, etc. So, with my limited understanding, I am going to take the following approach: - Get a iMac 27" with 3.4ghz to serve as ripper / encoder / general media manipulation desktop for the office - Get a Boxee Box to interface with NAS and HDMI out to my denon receiver to play in home theater - Use Rip-it to rip all DVDs. Keep a set of raw copies on the NAS that will be highest quality for Boxee Box to play on my 52" HDTV - Encode all dvd's using Handbrake to the highest quality available format for Apple TV / Ipad watching Questions 1. What is the highest quality encoding that Apple TV / Ipad will support? 2. I realize my approach will use a lot of storage due to the duplicate copies, but storage is super cheap and I have a lot of it. However, is there a more elegant approach I can take without sacrificing quality? 3. I have a small blu-ray collection. Is it possible to rip a blue-ray on a Mac? If so, how? This will be a huge project for me, so any advice / guidance would be greatly appreciated.
