I have an Infrant (now Netgear) NV+ NAS that I want to leverage to easily access my library of DVD's in multiple rooms. I have DLNA set up and I can see some .tivo files I put in the Video folder on the NAS so I know the playback part is technically working. Now I need the "source" part. I've read this forum and there are posts talking about putting all the content on the TiVo and that's _not_ what I want to do. I have a TiVo HD and a Pioneer DVD series 2 unit. Yes, I know it can play DVD's but and all the DVD's are stored elsewhere in the house and the kids routinely lose what that I want to watch. Yadda yadda yadda. I'm not trying to conserve space, I have a ton of space. What I want to do is rip my DVD's and get the media onto the NAS as simply as possible. The only caveat is that I'm on a Mac and most software talk I read here is PC. But by what I read, it seems that keeping the MPEG-2 files from the DVD and somehow joining all the relevant segments of the main program into one MPEG file is what I'm after. Is this right? Once I do that, saying I'm not chasing bitrate reduction as well, will the files stream over a home LAN? I have a Gigabit NAS & switch, the slowest point will be the TiVo's ethernet. I tried viewing one of my .tivo files and it played for about 10 seconds before my playback caught up to the downloading of the file and I had to wait. Ugh. Is this what I'm going to have to do with the movies? Or do I have to wait a half hour before I even start watching? If that's the case, It's not even worth the bother. So I ask here before I've spent countless hours banging my head against the wall, to see if what I want to do is possible. Thanks!
