afonte posted a topic in Disk Storage / Music Library StorageHi all, I realize that this is not in relation to CD's or strictly audio but I think this may be the best place to find help. My husband owns 800 DVDs. For a long time he's wanted to find a way to rip them into some sort of hard drive to have easy accessibility to it from his devices. I am sure this question must have been posted previously in regards to DVDs. What I am looking for is the following: - Fastest external hardware to rip DVDs and Blu Ray. If it can handle multiple disks, even better. - Fastest way to convert these files to playback for media manager. - Recommended media manager (external hard drive + system) We currently have an iTV, would we be able to use that connected to a hard drive? Total novice and I would love to figure this out for my husband so I can give it to him as a Christmas gift. Thank you in advance.
I'm a new beginner at this, but usually a quick lerner. I'm thinking about trying to build a music server. At the moment I'm just looking for possible (high resolution compatible) hardware. If I start a build, it is important that the music server will have either 'S/PIDF coaxial out' or 'AES/EBU (AES3?) XLR out'. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction for hardware with 'S/PDIF coaxial out' or 'AES/EBU XLR out'? Or is there a really good reason why most people build music server with USB out? If software is the problem, I think I might have that covered. I just got a friend who is a programing wizard interested in high resolution digital audio. So if there is hardware with 'digital coaxial out' or 'digital XLR out' that could be usable with some coding, that might be even better. Thanks /Filip
