I was going to install an Asus BD drive into my new HTPC but got to thinking (oh, no!
) if it would make more sense to install it in my server, which is where I'll be storing my ripped movies anyway. I still have a Sony BD (stand alone) that I can keep in the TV room if I'd like to just play a disc. How have you folks approached this? My plan is to just rip any new title to the server when I buy it, then store the disc away. Thanks!
I guess it's a matter of what ever is more convenient for you. My BD drive is in my server which is located in my basement. Kinda a pain having to run up and down the stairs when I'm ripping movies but hey, thats what kids are for!! (Actually, my HTPC doesn't have a drive slot so it was the way I had to go anyway...)
