What idiot would pay $20 to rip a DVD they already own to their hard drive 
for "easy viewing".

"Hmm. I bought Master and Commander for $17.99, but actually moving to put 
it in the DVD player is SUCH a pain in the ass. I'll call up 
'Rip-em-off-cuz-they-are-stupid AV Tech' and pay them $20 to make it 
magically play without needing the DVD"

And my guess is anyone willing to pay $3000 for a Myth system would likely 
have a $5000 DVD jukebox.

Ok, thats overkill on one point... I'll give you the fact that a lot of AV 
enthsiasts are idiots with too much money to spend, but I cant imagine any 
of them too dumb to do any research or work on their own would NOT say 
"Um... Tivo is $200... yours is $3000... why?"

Just sounds to me like you're salivating to rip off some rich people.
