Okay so I have probably 60 dvd's that I want to convert to digital copies that will some day be fed to my xbox 360 the media center extender or through some other HTPC product. I want to retain as much quality as possible and the surround sound audio. How do I go about doing this? What is the best codec to encode. What if they will be played on a 1080p tv. Should I upconvert them(is this even possible)? Should I just buy HD space and save them in raw format(VIDEO_TS?). How would you convert your dvd disc collection to digital. How do you decide which codec to go with? I want something that wont get oudated and require me to rip the dvd again to keep it up to par.
