How to get the BEST!! Video quality
Okay I am going through my first trial run of a HTPC. I have Mythbuntu 10.04 installed on a HP slimline. The HP slimline has a 1 TB Western Digital drive and a Nvidia GT430 card. So far I am loving this machine even though this is not going to be my final HTPC it may retire to a frontend.
So here is my issue I am wanting to transfer all of my DVDs to the HTPC so I can browse them. My first thought was to use K9copy and make .iso files of the DVDs so I could keep all of the features but the quality seems to somehow deteriorate and the files are huge! So then I tried handbrake with 2-pass decomb and deblocking this takes 4+ hours to do and the files ends up nicely sized at about 2 gigs but the quality was even worse than the k9copy .iso.
I need some advice on how to get the absolute best! quality DVD rip possible. I want to have chapters still available on the video but other than that I do not care what has to happen... amount of time video size.
