Hey everyone! Thank you for those that help keep this board up.
Here is the layout.
1. I want to purchase a DVR that will allow me to save/rip my DVDs straight to the HD for later playback without reinserting the disc.
2. I plan to store around 100+ DVDs so I need the ability to increase my space to an unhealthy amount (around 1.5TB). I imagine 4 drives connected to a single RAID.
3. I need to be able to access all of this from a laptop I can neatly place in my living room with my new television and or remote.
I don't want to have to keep a whole computer out there to make this a reality.
I remember reading this was possible but I need some serious advice on how to make it so. Any suggestions please?
Thank you to all those whom took the time to read even if you're as stumped as I.

The first thing you need to do is build or buy a PC running the Windows Media Center OS. Depending on the quality of sound and video you want to output you would aslo want to look for a decent sound and video card. You should also look into multiple large hard drives. Building the computer yourself would probably be the most cost effective. If you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Hope this helps out somewhat.
I have but I'm honestly not sure what I'm looking for. I know the basics of computers but not Media Center PCs versus DVRs especially. I'm willing to learn through, just need a hand at what I'm trying to do exactly.
