Hello everyone! (first post- been reading for about 2 years now but finally joined) I would like to thank everyone in advance for answering these probably obvious questions. I am very familiar with apple hardware, but want to ensure that this setup will work perfectly. I am installing an server (mac pro) in our house to stream media to Apple TV's. I am planning on ripping dvd's into handbrake using an unknown (for now) preset, then using itunes on the "server" to stream (not sync) to apple tv. I have a few questions. A: What is a good preset in handbrake to use for quality that is identical to the dvd, but does not eat up space unnecessarily for quality that a person couldn't notice? B: On a mac pro, can one rip 2 dvds at once from both drives (using two copies of handbrake) and still experience flawless rips? C: Say I have a typical hour and a half movie. I rip it with whatever settings I decide on (probably very high). How long will it take to import using a mac pro (3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM) while another, similar movie is being ripped from another drive? D: Will streaming, say, the movie from the above question to an apple TV over an "n" network experience any stuttering, quality loss, or skipping? If the mac pro is dedicated to serving movies, will I ever notice skipping, loss, ect? I know this may sound like overkill, being paranoid, ect, but I want to ensure this system will work well before I drop the cash. Please do not comment about "you could do this so much cheaper blah blah". We have spent many months researching and have specific reasons for not putting 1TB drives in the mac pro, ect. Our System (proposed) Mac Pro, 3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, 320GB/500GB (in raid 1), Fibre Channel Apple Xserve RAID 2.2 TB (expanded down the road) in RAID 5 5 Apple TV (40GB) 2 Mac Mini (1.83, 160GB) with Eyetv 250 Thanks for any answers in advance!
