Sorry if this has been asked and answered a million times before, but....

I'm looking to rip all my HD-DVDs to my PC and then be able to stream them across my wireless home network to my TV. This way I won't have to swap discs in my EP30 all the time!

Does anyone know what equipment/software I would need or that you'd recommend in order to be able to do this?

Thanks in advance. :)

You can easily convert a HD-DVD to an MKV file leaving the original video intact if you follow the manual conversion guide here.

You wont be able to stream them wireless, the speed just isnt there. I would strongly suggest setting up a wired ethernet network.

If you convert the video down to lower resolutions, smaller file size by using x264 in MKV then they may work over wireless.

As for a player hooked up to the TV the new WDTV Live will do the job.
