Been in the process of ripping and encoding my DVD collection to the Mini for about a month now. Have been using Handbrake only to do the entire process so far, and usually can only get about 3 a day after work. Today decided to try Rip It to pre-rip a bunch and the queue them up in Handbrake so I can leave it running. The Rip It part has gone really well as I ripped 15 DVD's in a row in a matter of hours. But now have started the encoding part, and Handbrake is crawling! When I was using Handbrake for the entire process I was averaging around 30 fps. But now I have all rips queued up and the first is doing around 10 fps! What's the deal? I figured it would be faster encoding from HD instead of DVD. Also tried to encode Hunt for Red October and it says "Suspected RCE Region 1". Is there any way to remove the region from ripped file? Hopefully someone has been through this before and can help me out.
