best settings for lossless (DVD quality)?

Mar 2, 2014 at 9:25 PM
Is there a best setting for getting actual DVD quality? I'm adding my files onto a home server so they can really be as big as they need to be.

I can definitely see the blur on Normal and even High settings. I haven't tried all of the different quality settings yet - thought I'd ask on here first in case someone has already done the work.

I'm not concerned about size. Just digitizing them. The kids' DVDs are getting normal quality, but for my stuff, I'd rather have the actual DVD quality. Thanks

I think that lossless means a 1 to 1 copy of the original.
By the way, the high profile setting is already too good but wait for others here in case they have better options.

even a 1 to 1 would be fine. As long as I can play it over my wifi on my smart TV

What kind of videos do you have, are they streaming, are they from DVDs?

It's always going to re-encode so you can't get the exact quality of the original. If you choose constant quality 18 you should get a picture that's difficult to tell apart from the original.
