Lexx DVDs Converted Successfully

I converted all four seasons of Lexx using the free and open source ripping tool HandBrake.  The whole process took slightly longer than I expected, but I added a step of backing up all the raw ISO files because I wasn’t sure what settings to use to optimize the quality/compression ratio.  These DVDs were unusual because instead of having dual audio tracks, they contain complete separate copies of each video.  The DVD video title numbers were not consistent throughout the entire collection, so for each disc I needed to make a note of which title went to which episode.  The most time consuming part was the actual ripping process.  My desktop has 6GB memory and an Intel i7 processor, and ripping season 4 (24 episodes) maxed our my CPU and took about 3 hours.
