    It depends on your drive speed and CPU speed. I use DVD Decrypter

    Wait, huh?

    By hard drive, you mean a computer, right? (window's media center, etc)

    I use dvd decrypter with autogk since it's easy that way.

    He has an external HDD that can be plugged directly into a TV. He will rip the files from the disc and transfer them to the HDD with his PC, and they watch them on it.

    What is this tv in question? I've never heard of TV sets doing this (maybe dvd players).

    I hope it supports xvid/divx and h.264 content.

    Other way around, the HDD does all the decoding and outputs video to the TV
