    Backup DVDs to Amazon Fire TV 2 from RN104 NAS

    Q: “ I would like to copy my 300 or so DVDs to my RN104 then be able to watch them on my Amazon Fire TV, both are connected via 100Mbps Ethernet. I have a 104" screen and a Hi-Fi based 5 channel surround system so sound and video quality is most important, I am not fussed about file size as I have loads of storage on the RN104. I'm using a Cambridge Audio 551R as a pre-amplifier which can decode every current surround format so I'd like to keep the highest quality soundtrack available on the DVD, whether that be Dolby Digital or preferably DTS if it's there. I have been test MakeMKV and Handbreak but faild. Many thanks in advance for anyone out there who can help!” -see more 2016 Best 3 DVD Ripping Software

So you can hit on “Settings” to open settings window where you can adjust the video size to 1080p and frame rate to 30 fps.
