> I like being able to use DVD menus and skip from chapter to chapter, so I've just switched to xine and it's working great for DVDs. My next question is whether MythTV can rip DVDs preserving DVD menus and chapters. I've done this in Windows using a little program which makes perfect or compressed rips, then Cyberlink PowerDVD can play these directly from hard disk. I've been looking around but don't see how this is done in MythTV.
> Best regards,
This was on the list a while back.
It will make a perfect copy to the HD of the entire DVD.
I found you need to open the DVD with xine first to unlock it and
then you can copy it.
