Well, I finished transcoding the first episode in Battlestar galactica season 4.5 to 720p, and it is gorgeous. 5.1 too. All in a 1.3 GB m4v.

it's a BD reader, CD/DVD burner. It was an external that i took apart and installed internally in my Mac Pro when i got it. i think it was about $170 from newegg.

So you rip the BD onto your mac, then what? You just keep it there to watch later, or do you plan to get a BD burner and burn it later?

edit: just saw on newegg LG BD burner for $149.00 (internal)

they were not resized at all, so that should be pretty close, i guess.

Firstly, because I had already purchased many blurays without much hope of being able to rip them any time soon. Also, this way I can create 1080p versions when Appletv is finally able to play them. And I just like having the discs with extended episodes, deleted scenes, etc.

I don't think there's a definite answer. I believe the hackers that make Boxee say it might be possible.
