Looking for one with really good quality. Looking to start using my PC as an HTPC, and need to rip my movies to my HDD. That, and my 250GB HDD has never been anywhere near full, and I need to make it feel properly used

I used that for a while and I didn't think it was high enough quality for me. Is there one that can give me decent picture at full screen? (1600 x 1200)

Well I know of nothing for free that does A1 quality but a key for DVDfab express is only 20 bux and that is what I use for good quality burning.

... just ripping a DVD to your HDD using Shrink, decrypter or FABdecrypter leaves you with a 100% representation of the original DVD on the HDD... no loss whats so ever... are you looking to convert DVD's to a smaller file (avi etc.)?

with no loss, you would get a 4 or 8 gigabyte file depending upon how old the dvd is.....

you want loss or your gonna fill you your HDD VERY VERY fast....

Well is there a way to make it not pixelated when I expand to full screen? Like AA ors omething of the like? Even with lossless ripping, the quality qwas still sub par. I pretty much just watch anime, so it doesn't have to be amazing quality, but it's still all blocky and poopy...

DVD resolution is 720x480 so you cannot expect your output to be higher than that. When you blow up the image it will be blocky. I know the scalers I work with at work do a good job of fixing this problem but they cost $15,000. You still will usually see blocking in the black areas even with this device.

Looky here

This might help to get good quality... but lets face it... once you compress it is never the same again...

You can use a AV receiver with 1080P upscaling on all inputs. The one from Onkyo used one of the highest quality consumer upscalers available: the Reon HQV:

Now, in order to take advantage of this fabulous piece of equipment, you will need a 1080P capable TV.

Personally shot DVD? Is that code for pr0nz?

And thanks for all of the help, guys. I'll probably end up using these programs you guys have selected.
