Hello, I've been using AppleTV mainly as a music server for the year or so that I've owned it, and it works great for streaming uncompressed wav or Apple lossless audio files from the iTunes library on my MacMini. I also enjoy the YouTube functionality from time to time, but have never used the iTunes store to purchase content - I like to rip my own to get the best quality. However, I'm a complete newbie on ripping and streaming my DVD video library in a similar fashion, and would like to get started. I began reading some of the sticky threads here on ripping DVD libraries, and it quickly became apparent that further compression of the ripped DVD files is involved in this process. Is there anyway to rip and stream my DVD files to the Apple TV without any further compression or conversion involved? I'd like to preserve most or all of the video information, and especially, retain the full bitrate 5.1 or PCM audio tracks from my ripped DVD files. Please advise if this is doable at all with the Apple TV, and if not, what the best alternatives might be. Thanks.
