  1. Anyway to backup mt DVDs to my NAS?

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Recently, I replaced my busted Buffalo LinkStation NAS drive with a dual-disk Synology NAS. I have 200+ DVDs that want to backup to my NAS. If possible, I hope it will suffer a litter loss or without lossless.
  2. HTPC (playing/external straming ripped DVDs)

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Hello All, my father has enlisted me with the task of building/buying a HTPC for his living room. First I'll list his setup, & then I'll describe what we're after. Martin Logan 5.1 (Velodyne subwoofer) McCormack Sound Processing unit (no surround sound circuitry) 2 Fosgate Amps 55" 1080P...
  3. Paramount, Redbox keep DVDs and Blu-ray discs in kiosks the same day they go on sale

    Testing
    It looks like not all of the remaining Hollywood studios are putting the 30-day brakes on providing movies to Redbox, as Paramount has concluded after a ten month study that it has "minimal" effect on DVD sales. Dennis Maguire, President of Paramount Home Entertainment says the the company is...
  4. Copying clips from copywrite protected DVDs

    AV Home Theater
    Is it legal to copy clips from DVDs you have purchased? What programs can you use to do so? I have " CyberLink DVD Suite Deluxe " but it won't copy from it because the DVD is protected.
  5. Where to catalog your DVDs online (or off)

    AV Home Theater
    Until the end of 2008, I had been using DVDSpot to keep track of my growing DVD collection. Unfortunately for whatever reason despite a large dedicated user base, they decided to close the site (see dead link in my sig :( ). Since then I have looked at other options, but nothing has really...
  6. What Receiver Mode Do You Watch DVDs with Mono Soundtracks In?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    When I run DVDs with "2.0 MONO" soundtracks on them, I have my Onkyo 605 set to default all two channel signals to PRO LOGIC II MOVIE mode which then sends the 2.0 track all to the center channel -- but the other DSP modes on this receiver I have been playing around with when watching discs with...
  7. Stellar quality DVDs

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    I should join the big picture world very soon :bigsmile: but I am still old fashioned with SD DVD material. I have been informed that PQ will not be that good with less than stellar SD DVD movies. Let's make a list: - All Pixar movies - LOTR - STAR WARS What else?:bigsmile:
  8. DVDs won't play in some players

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I have an interesting situation that I hope someone can shed some light on. I own a Toshiba dvd player and about 90 dvds. I have 18 dvds that will not play in my player. I know these are good dvds because they play perfectly in a friend's Sony player, but they will not play in my player. There...
  9. Another Issue Has Popped Up: Non-Anamorphic DVDs on the Panny '10A...

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Here is something ELSE I noted regarding the behavior of the Panasonic '10A Blu-ray player.... Why is it that certain NON ANAMORPHIC DVDs in my collection are automatically detected by this machine, and stretched -- automatically -- to fill the screen better, while some are ignored? In other...

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    While anyone who has been following my threads will know, I have been severely dissapointed with my Panny's upconversion abilities on standard DVD; but while I continue to find reasons to support it and give it the benefit of the doubt, I have come up with this insight... The outdoor, brightly...

  12. Can blue ray or HD dvd players older old DVDs

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Sorry, This is likely a lame question to most of you. My DVD player is dead. SO I will be replacing it. Will it be necessary to purchase two dvd players or is the HD and Blue Ray player backward compatible.
  13. What's with collector's edition DVDs

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Why do manufacturers still state that a DVD is a deluxe ultra platinum limited edition collectors box set or something else to that matter. We all know they pressed a few hundred thousand of them and 5 years from now they'll be worthless. Do people actual buy them thinking that they're...
  14. HD-A2 and home-authored DVDs

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    The other day, I burned a DVD using Ulead Movie Studio and then tried to play it on my HD-A2 but there was no sound. As it turned out, I had to change the setting on the A2 for PCM audio instead of bitstream to get audio. I never had to do that with my previous DVD player. So, I'm wondering if...

  16. Martial Arts/Hong Kong Action Fans: the Dragon Dynasty DVDs are the real deal!

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    For fans of Hong Kong action and martial arts pics, it has been torturous sitting through (or skipping) one subpar Region 1 DVD release after another. These classic movies have been hacked up in the editing room, horribly dubbed, and basically given totally indifferent attention to quality and...
