Still Time to Enter the AVA Media RipNet for Windows Home Server Giveaway

Yep, it’s time for another one of our UWHS giveaways – this time we have two Ripnet + AVA CD/DVD licence packs to giveaway – and you still have a few days left to enter.


Here is how Tranquil describe RipNet:

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.

And here is how they describe the AVA Media CD/DVD ripping software:

Your music can be copied either to lossless music formats such as Windows Media Audio Lossless or FLAC, and/or to highly compressed Windows Media Audio or MP3 files, or a combination, allowing you to store a primary format for in-house playback, and a secondary format for mobile devices.

Your Video disks can be copied to either VIDEO_TS formats for DVD’s, ISO format for DVD or Blu-ray, or a Media Centre Extender compatible MPEG-2 format for DVD’s, or you can copy both to a VIDEO_TS format as well as an MPEG-2 format for DVD’s, allowing the full VIDEO_TS structure to be played on the main Media Centre, and the MPEG-2 file on your Media Centre Extender.

The Movie Monitor will automatically identify movie folders in your Windows Home Server’s video libraries, and add high quality meta-data to the titles, making the meta-data available to several numerous Media Centre software products, as well as storing a folder image for the movie folders when browsing the folders with Windows Explorer.

The data is be stored directly in the movie folder as an XML file, front and back cover image files, as well as a folder.jpg file, making the data openly available to any program that supports them, including My Movies, Media Centres DVD library, using the “DVD library Connector etc.

We reviewed RipNet back in September.

So, what do you have to do to win one of the two packs then?
