So in my infinite wisdom, i have decided i want to rip all my 500 DVDs (open up some shelf space), and store them digitally. I would need to to be as good of quality as possible, but readable by a Jailbroken AppleTV (Newest model). The tricky part is, my wife travels for work, and wants to be able to grab so 10 movies at a time, bring them onto her Macbook Pro, and watch them in whatever format they are in. I am thinking about storing them either on my current PC HD (I have a 2TB drive, only using 400MB of it), or getting a small 2TB Ethernet enabled Ext HD (Yeah, i know i wont be able to store all 500 on one drive). The apple TV is going to be hardwired connected to a Panny 65GT30 display.
SO my question is, what is the best way to rip, in which format so that I can meet the 2 requirements above?
