You would have to transcode the audio portion of the dvd rip to mp3, I just 
tried a standard rip (with AC3 audio) and that does not work (video is equal or 
below 720x480 and does work, but ac3 audio is way out of sync), you can do an 
audio only trancode and things will work pretty well.   You would need a wired 
network setup for dvd as their bitrates are getting close to the limit of the mvpmc.

I have my backend dhcp the mvpmc (by mac address-it ignores everyone else), my 
dd-wrt dhcp's everything else.  I believe others have setup things to go through 
the dd-wrt but I have had issues with the second dhcp server handling just the 
mvpmc on the backend.
