Playing DVDs Best Practice?

I searched the forms a bit but didn’t find a best practice for someone follow if they wanted to get their DVD collection onto the aTV. If I missed the post or document I apologize.

Here is what I want to do. Put all my DVDs on a my NAS and access the NAS from the aTV? I saw some docs about connecting to a NAS but didn’t see anything about the preferred method of r_ipping the DVDs. I have plenty of disk space on the NAS, I have 1GB local LAN, WIN XP PCs, and I’m low on time (2 Kids). I’d like to copy the DVDs once and shove the DVDs in a box in my basement and forget about them or maybe even toss them.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
