What are you doing with blu-ray movies?

Are guys just storing them on hard drives? Thinking of starting to get rips of blurays and storing them on a hard drive....

Have plenty of space. I only rip the movie. Are you going to stream them or are you going to use a media pc? Best if you use a media pc because not all file types are streamable yet.

Right now I'm streaming them to ps3. I don't have a fancy receiver, so I convert the HD audio into DTS and Dolby. Some disk use the VC-1 format which you can not stream right now. That's my problem. I don't have $$ right now to make a media pc.

AnyDVD HD and tsMuxeR 1.10.6 for decrypting and ripping.

I have about 2tb storage between whats in the computer and a single external drive. My computer is currently hooked up to the tv via 35' HDMI as a 2nd monitor. Eventually I will build a dedicated HTPC. Im thinking of stopping on dvds and starting to get blurays off the net

The rips I have is the movie itself with no compression at all. Only thing I do is rip the DTS/Dolby out of the HD audio since I don't have an up to date receiver. They range between 14gigs to 43 gigs, depending lenth of movie and what types of audio. I have some regular DVD's that aren't on BR, but when it does go to it, I get it.
