I have done this in the past (on a mac though) it's just a pain when  
I think I should be able to simply put the DVD in the mythbox and  
go.  And the myth DVD ripper is faster than my mac version.

Do you mean to suggest that there is a standard procedure of  
downloading a movie if I already own the DVD?  I'm not aware of  
anything like that, I could certainly go that route.

I don't mean/want to start a whole DRM descussion, I thought if I  
owned the DVD it was the same as me ripping a CD of music that I  
own.  Maybe that's "illegal" too.
My apologies if I've entered a forbidden topic.
