Interesting thread.  Most of my DVDs on on my server in 'raw' VOB mode - but
I have found that 2TB fills up pretty quickly!  The few I have done were all
Xvid / AC3, but this thread has motivated me to try H.264/AC3 to compare
with the results I get.  I've got no patience for these 6-step processes
