Yesterday we mentioned AVA Media RipNet – today we have a bit more information to share.



RipNet is a innovative system that links your Media Centre optical drive to your Home Server, to provide a network based ripping service.
If your Home Server has the AVA Media disc ripping Add In already, and you also have a Media Centre or PC running Win7 Home Premium, you can now select to play the disks, as normal, on the PC or automatically rip them to your Home Server. The ripping process is as simple as insert the disc, wait and when it is ejected the process is complete.
There are two parts to the system, a new Home Server Add In, and a Media Centre (Win7 Home Premium) Add In.

* Due to legality in several countries, AVA Media does not backup copy protected DVD, HD-DVD or Blu-ray titles. Users in countries that allow circumventing CSS and AACS copy protections when backing up their movies can install SlySoft AnyDVD or AnyDVD HD to remove these copy protections.  An option is available for the installation of AnyDVD, should you, the user, choose to use it.

  1. I'm looking forward to more info, this looks like a repackaged My Movies 3. Can you explain the difference ?

  2. Not really something new yes the plugin is into WHS.

    I have been using Starwind iscsi target on my pc at home, created a link to the optical drive, install the iscsi initiator on the WHS and running platinum dvd ripper to copy the files directly into my films shares.

    Works fine for me, then again the cost of the starwind s/w compared to this a huge but I have a home ESX lab so starwind is a requirement for me.
