Just be aware that Windows 7 can do some funky things with which decoder it uses and when. Simply installing a new version of Sage7 can cause windows to ignore ffdshow again and switch to using AC3...

Awesome to hear this will be fixed.

In my case, I found the volume forces to 0% every time I enter the sage settings (Possibly just when changing decoders/renderers/sound/etc). Need to remember to...

Foreign Cover Art

Lately, alot of the DVDs I import are getting foreign covers, ranging from italian, to russian, etc.

Well that's not entirely true. My Ion box cost me $200 and at the time when I purchased it, HD extenders are going for $200-$250 on ebay because sage refuses to actually produce them. I'll give you...

I agree, but the reason I don't follow this approach is that disk space is not my limiting factor. The NAS is 4TB with capability of expanding to 6.

The problem is the time it takes to recompress...

This happens to me every so often in Windows 7 (32-bit) as well. Quite annoying. Even if you set the taskbar to hide itself, it still leaves a small row of pixels in front of sage.

No, its an ION chipset so its an integrated card.

From what I have researched, this just seems to be something that windows 7 will do (and will continue to do). This may also affect anyone using a...

Yeah, it really is the oddest thing.

To be clear, these are DVDs I own that I ripped using Ripit on the Mac (which sets the region of the rip to that of the source disk).
