Hi I have lots of TV box sets in both blu-ray and DVDs. Also have lots of movies in those formats and plan to purchase more. I decided I want to make digital copies of them but have a few questions as this will be a new project for me that I plan to work on over time. My first question what is the cheapest external bluray drive to buy? What is the best software to use I know about MakeMKV and Handbrake. Please tell me what settings to use, I plan to put these files on a server with plex (maybe a Mac Mini) and would like the best settings for being played on a 45"-55" TV. I won't be using an Apple TV. Also would like to keep file size decent but keep quality intact. I have a Macbook Pro Retina 15" Mid 2014 base model and iMac 21" Mid 2011 base model with 12gb ram. Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions, it will be greatly appreciated.
