I want to Backup all of my DVD collection to HDD and run them from there through DVD Lobby.

I have backed on up using DVDCrypter. How do I run the the movie with TT from the HDD.

Thanks

If it's not (yet) possible, you could install Zoomplayer and use TTs Sonic filters for the same audi/video quality, and you can then playback any media files you like.

Alternatively, PowerDVD XP and 5 will do that for you.

Thanks Gary,

I have sussed it out. All you have to is subst a drive to the movie directory and start TT and away you go.

That will do for now until I have a go with MainLobby. Had a quick look at ML, seems good but I have no literature and seems a little tricky. Can't believe I said that I program SQL databases in my real life.

Thanks

The SUBST method works as you have discovered, however there are easier ways :) ... have a read of this guide to TT's command-line arugments, you can set up shortcuts or if you have a read you may find how to create registry entries to allow you simply to double-click.

Certainly one of TT's weaknesses compated to PDVD for example is you can't simply File | Open. (

I took a look at ML some time back and decided it was all too much hassle for me :) ... I didn't really need it as I use Alcohol to mount ripped ISO images so with auto-play I simply mount the image and TT gets started automatically. But ML probably is easier than that if you invest the time to learn it.

I need it all to just go after I have set it up. My wife will want to use the system, so the front end needs to be easy for both DVD and Music.

Methinks you need a Mac then ... M$ don't engineer Windows to 'just go'. :D

I use MyHTPC with TT for playing direct from the HD and it's real easy.

Have to agree once fully set up myHTPC is superb. One click on cover art lets you play both Music and DVD's. Looks excellent as well having Album/DVD covers to browse through before choosing which one to play.
