Aaaahh, that's a problem then. I guess i could look at non-iso
though?

Yep, that's what i thought!

As i'll only be serving up to stereo (non-surround) outputs with
this (i'll use the actual dvd's for my projector) maybe i can find
some software that will rip in some format i can playback - but down
size the audio and strip other languages etc?

Thanks
