Ok, given that I would otherwise need an SDI modded DVD player, how hard would it be to create a good DVD player into my HTPC? Any recommendations on components or other challenges? I'd probably like only one DVD drive in the unit and that would be a DVD recordable drive. Any suggestions on brand, model, cost, etc.? What am I losing doing it this way versus just getting a modded RP56 or AV30?

When you say "build it in," you mean simply buy a DVD drive? I've seen people build weird stuff into a PC case (like an N64) so I'm not quite sure what you are getting at.


Basically just decide on which standard you want to follow. Almost any DVD drive will play a simple movie.

yes exactly buy a DVD drive. Just wondering what the differences, if any are in the hardware you get in an internal DVD drive versus a standalone (which I'd have to have SDI modded).
