    Best program and format for a DVD rip

    Sounds like the Handbrake MKV option will work best for what you want. Typically a full length feather film will turn out to be in the neighborhood of .5 Gig with those settings. Handbrake will allow for 5.1 audio and multiple audio tracks. You can even select which audio tracks you want. Ripit sounds way cool, i'm looking forward to trying it out, but if it is anything like MactheRipper it will give you 4-8 gig file sizes.
  3. You used the uninstaller and it left the application right in the applications folder? i wonder what it actually uninstalled. Or maybe MS just has a different definition of uninstall than the rest of us.

    Boxee, Roku, etc., what I want to do is....

    i bought a mac mini this Fall to use as a media center. Works like a charm. We elected to go with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse rather than the screen sharing, but we also added an app called Mobile Mouse. It allows you to control your mac from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. There are several options out there for remotes of this sort.

    Techs do it too

    A few years ago i was doing a complete backup to an external hard drive. i'd let my schedule laps so this was the first time in about six months that i'd done a complete backup. Not 20 minutes after i finished the drive on my iBook died and needed to be replaced. After that i increased the frequency of my backups considerably.

    Scanner Pro - SOLVED

    EIther the Scanner Pro update over the weekend or the iOS update this week seems to have corrected the issue.

    Scanner Pro - SOLVED

    i've been using Scanner Pro with my iPhone for years no trouble. Since upgrading to the iPhone 4 this summer i've been having trouble getting my computer to connect to it over the home wireless network. Here's the skinny: 1. Scanner Pro is able to send data to my iDisk every time with no issues or loss of data. 2. When connecting my iPhone to the computer with the USB cable i can pull data from scanner pro via iTunes. 3. When trying to connect to scanner pro through finder over the network i get a "cannot connect to server" error. i have tried removing Scanner Pro from my iPhone and putting it back on again. This fixes the connection issue the first time i try to connect over wireless directly to the device, but it only works once then is unable to connect again. Anyone have any ideas on this? Perhaps something i am missing in a setting somewhere? Thanks in advance

    4.2 is here

    i installed yesterday on my iPhone 4 as well. i thought i read in the iTunes update the other week that wireless syncing would be supported, but that doesn't appear to be possible. Too bad since that would be a great feature to have.

    Color in iTunes 10

    i'm surprised no one has posted this yet. Ran across a way to get the color back in the left hand column of iTunes. Source information Download url My wife has been using this for several weeks with no issues. i'm forcing myself to try and get used to the new look of iTunes until December before i go ahead and brake down. Unfortunately it does not fix the fugly volume control.

    Logic Pro and Bootcamp

    i don't have bootcamp running so i can't say for sure, but it does sound like Logic is searching the bootcamp volume for the necessary plugin. i don't quite know how spotlight would be causing the trouble, but just in case here's how you exclude a volume from being indexed. In system preferences go to spotlight->privacy->add or drag the volume (in your case bootcamp) you want to exclude. Hope that helps. Let us know.

    Color in iTunes 10

    That's a very good point about greyed out meaning turned off. One of the biggest hurdles for me when i switched to Logic as my main recording software was the grey look of everything. Took some getting used to because, like you said, you have to look twice to make sure you are clicking the one you want. i could take or leave the new dock icon. Doesn't bother me at all. i'd prefer just a couple of eight notes without the blue circle behind it, but that's just me.

    simple VJ software for Mac?

    i use the setup you are describing on a regular basis. The apple remote is perfect for what you are describing. The range is quite good so you shouldn't need to be very close. i've even gotten it to work form some odd angles from my laptop.

    iPad predictions

    Why did they beta test the new mobile me web interface? i don't think it had anything to do with the iPad. i think it had more to do with using the user base to test the product before it went out to everyone. i agree they are going to push Facetime onto as many devices as they can. i just don't agree that we're going to see it on the iPad by Christmas. It's just too late in the season at this point. i would imagine a rollout early next year.

    simple VJ software for Mac?

    If those are too expensive for your tastes Keynote (and presumably PowerPoint as well) allow you to loop a movie that is inserted into a slide show. You could set each movie on it's own slide then have your assistant switch to the next slide on command.

    iPad predictions

    True, but at the same time Apple has never shown in the past that they are worried about making people wait. How long did the iPhone crowd have to wait for multi-tasking or even cut/copy/paste?

    iPad predictions

    i don't think there will be a press event to announce 4.2 coming out since they have already said it's coming this month way back in September. i'd also be very surprised if Apple comes out with any sort of camera for the iPad by the end of this year. More likely in my opinion is a built in camera in the next generation iPad. i'd be shocked if there wasn't a camera in the next gen given how hard Apple seems to be pushing Facetime.

    i can live with the vertical stoplight, but the volume slider is driving me nuts.

    So, who are you?

    Seems to be a lot of us, yes. i think it's because we don't have to fight with the computer whenever we'd like to make music

    So, who are you?

    Sure why not... i'm 36, living in Michigan (USA), and a musician. Currently i teach general music, and direct some adult performing groups, but i don't get much chance to play my dominant instrument that much. My wife and i are both Apple fans (she longer than me) so it is no trouble convincing her to get gadgets i don't post much on these forums, but i lurk here a lot. i try to chirp in whenever i see some on asking about recording or sound/mic issues.

    Video playback issue

    I think i half solved the issue. i post here in case some one else stumbles on this problem. What was happening was that iTunes remembers the last place you viewed a video. So if you watch video in a new window on a second monitor iTunes will always pop the video window open onto the second monitor even when there is no second monitor attached. My solution was to plug my laptop into the TV at home, and drag the video window back onto my laptop screen. My new question is if there is a way for iTunes to place the video window on the main screen when no second monitor is present rather than hide the window.

    Video playback issue

    Been having this problem for a couple weeks, and haven't managed to find a solution on Apple's support forums. My issue is that video content (TV shows, podcasts, and movies) will not open in a new window. i can watch them in the album artwork or main window. When i try to play a video file the iTunes window will "grey" the buttons as if it is not the active window, but no new window pops open. The audio will play fine. Any ideas?? CORRECTION. After playing around with the F10 key i discover that there IS a video window, but it is below my screen. Almost as if it is trying to play on a second screen that is no plugged in. Selecting the new window has it drop down below my main screen (this is where i usually have my secondary monitors).

    Need Suggestions re Mac/PC Calendar Planning Program

    Sounds like something google docs could handle. i've never used google calendar, but i assume it would integrate into the rest of the suite.

    converting VLC file to mp3 file?

    What format is the VLC file in?
  25. i've never tried multi-tracking with USB, but there shouldn't be any reason it won't work. Depending on the interface, and your processor/RPMs/etc. you may find more latency with USB. This is why i prefer firewire audio interfaces. The interface you linked to should work fine. Within GarageBand there will be settings to assign each of the inputs to a different track, and arm them both for recording. You may need to adjust the system preferences/sound to make sure it is selected as the input. Also you may have to configure GarageBand in the preference pane to select the device as well.
