I am debating on whether or not to get a blu-ray drive. But for the price a PS3 would be the cheapest plus i could then use it for gaming. My question is it sounds like from what i have read here or there you can rip the disc to the PS3, then copy it to a PC? is that correct? If it is theres my first question. How do you do that, step by step or link to forum/instructions? Second once i am at that point with the movie backup up is there a way to get that to play on another TV that has a XBOX 360 and vice versa, ripped HD DVD movies from 360 drive to play on PS3? Thats where I would use the dandy sly products correct? My overall master plan is to have a movie file server in which I can have either my 360 or PS3 (if i get one) play movies from the server. I do not have a 1080p tv so conversion to 720p for both formats would be ideal. I know you genius's at sly are working on that conversion.
