It's my understanding that Anydvd is about the best software to rip BluRay to hard drive files. Do you agree or do you recommend other programs instead of it or in addition to it? Once I've ripped the files to hard drive, what methods can be used to play them out to an HDTV over an HDMI cable? I've been told that playing the files on a pc/laptop with a software player and setting up the video hardware to output over an hdmi connector rather than out to the monitor screen is the easiest and pretty much always works fine. Is that true? What software player(s) do you recommend to play BluRay files that have been ripped to a hard drive? What programs do you recommend that would let me edit BluRay files on a hard drive to remove fbi warnings and other junk, make playback start at the main title or else the main menu, etc? In the DVD world, I've been using IfoEdit and basically am wondering what the BluRay equivalent to it is.
