"And, of course the number of extras etc determine the use of a single layer DVD, but most of my DVD's are the TV series, and they ALL are double layer." A TV series will be double layer, because the studios are trying to squeeze as much on a single disc as possible. As for AnyDVD, I use it mostly for its non decryption attributes. DVD's are much easier to pirate than Blu-Rays but the rule of thumb has always been, if you can see it, then there's a way to copy. I still have some HD DVDs in my collection which I will have to get to soon enough before there's nothing left to play them with. As for time, yes I have a lot more time than I did during my early days on the forum. In 2012 I applied for early retirement with the knowledge that it would reduce my pension, but I have enough so I'm good. Keep in touch!
