myopinion: Does that law apply to DVD's that he's made himself, via recording from TV?
myopinion: He would like a device that would plug directly into a TV via HDMI or component and playback. Can a NAS do that? Also he needs an easy way to get those DVD's onto the device.
myopinion: I have a mate who has made a collection of around 150 music DVD's. Some of them over 10 years old are starting to fail and he has started making new copies. However what he would like to do is put them all onto one portable device so that he can play them anywhere, home, bach etc. Can anyone recommend a DVD recorder that can hold 150 DVD's and play them back to his TV? It would require at least a 1TB drive? Is this the best solution?
Having the NAS plus the device is good because then you can access your files from any other PC in the house.
