    Is there a easy way im not seeing to add your blurays on bluray.com? I dont wanna click on individual one on all the movies.
    Just type the movie in the search bar. Hover over it, then the little pop-up on the left click add to collection. It takes no time at all.

    Has anyone tried streaming blu ray rips over network before? I'm thinking of storing mine on a NAS server which pulls about 100 megabytes over wired connections. From what I've researched blu rays are about 40mbps (bits not bytes, I think?)
    I'm using this http://wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=330 as the media receiver, plays just about any codec / container

    If you were looking for one I'd highly recommend anything from the Netgear ReadyNAS line, from personal experience, stay away from western digital's network storage. Maybe there are better solutions for a pure media server for just music and video but if you want something inexpensive to do network backups / centralising media to stream around the house I've found this to be a great solution

    100 Mbps should cover you. For some reason it doesn't cover me, but that's because i have a shitty switch that claims 100Mbps but doesn't deliver.

    I steam blu-rays over the network all the time, I keep them on my HTPC and watch them on my desktop (when i cbf going to the ht room)
    theres no special requirements at all just about any router and hard drive combo should handle it jus tfine.

    Do you access the files from a homegroup or mapped network drive or does the HTPC run as a media server? I'm kind of tempted to do this with an old laptop

    Jaws coming to Blu-Ray

    If i had the money, i would spend my entire life restoring films that wouldn't get this treatment and had a limited audience/appeal.

    Rusty, you once posted a link to a site where we can see which movies they currently restore. Could you post the link?

    I buy a lot of my blu-rays either on sale, from Ebay, or get them as gifts. Just a few weeks ago, the Blockbuster nearby closed and in their last few days, they priced their blu-rays at 6 for $20.

    Pawn shots are pretty decent for blu-rays. One place my wife and I went to had them for about $6-7 a piece.

    According to blu-ray.com, I have 110 blu-rays right now. I have a few more than that due to the site not listing a few of the ones I own, but even then it is only around 117 blu-rays.

    I got Ghostbusters for $5. Amazon has Terminator 2 for $5 also. The Skynet Edition is pretty cool but it takes forever to load sometimes.

    I dont care what the general meaning of FP about blue-ray is, I am in no way planning to replace my DVD collection with Blue-rays. I haven't even replaced all my VCRs yet.

    My Blu Ray collection is a whopping 6 movies, 7 when my 2001 Blu Ray gets here today.

    Well then you are missing out, and if you don't replace you VCR's, do you just have a stack of broken VCR's? with the one good one that actually play VHS tapes? sounds like my Cousin.

    I've been trying to replace my dvds with blu-rays as much as I can.
    It took a while for my wife to want to switch completely over to blu-ray as well, but now she won't even consider buying a dvd unless it is a gift for someone who doesn't have a blu-ray player, or is a movie she really wants that isn't on blu-ray yet.

    Sweet Jesus, you have VCR's? Like, those things that rewind those big bulky tapes with the terrible audio and video. Even if you don't want to upgrade to Blu-Ray, DVD's are pretty affordable. Hell, I've found Blu-ray's that aren't even that expensive.

    I have around 1000 DVDs myself. I'd usually put away some money for movies, so if there was one I wanted to watch I bough it.

    I have 8 Blu-ray's and will continue buying. Finally started to replace my DVD collection.

    Damn that came off badly, I have around 400 DVD's, many of whom are now on blue ray. I dont even know the number for the VCRs. When I begin replacing a format they come out with a new one. Its tedious.

    VCRs can contain hillariously bad kung fu movies sometimes. I usually find them at dollar stores and Garage sales.

    Shes a dvd collector. She was the manager of Blockbuster, Suncoast, Fye. So they didnt cost much with discount. And Wal-Mart and Best Buy always have good deals.

    because i think 720p was originally called HD. things higher than 1080 will probably have a new name too (this is really all just marketing shit)

    So (in theory), the larger the 1080p screen is, the lower quality it is up close. Like if Imax screens used 1080p the pixels would be as large the light bulb in a medium sized flashlight.
