Iíve been seriously considering adding a Crestron ADMS-G2 to my system (I Currently Have Crestron Control & Digital Media) but I canít seem to find the answer to a very important question to me. Iíve phone my local dealer and he told me they just havenít installed enough of them to know the answer. He recommended that I phone Crestron Support and pick their brain. I did that and the guy I talked too played coy and read me what was in the instruction manual (Which I had already read).
Basically my question is can the ADMS-G2 Play full uncompressed Blu-Rayís & DVDís and allow Navigation through the Menu Structures? If so what is the workflow or best way to convert those disks? Obviously it canít play .ISO formats but can it play a Folder Structure format for Blu-Rayís & DVDís? It says it will play a .M2TS file but Iím not sure if that means it will play that file only and you have to strip that file out of the Stream Folder or if that means it will play those files in the BDMV Fold Structure.
If it canít decipher the Blu-Ray & DVD Folder Structures what is the recommended method to get the full uncompressed ďMovie OnlyĒ portion of the Blu-Ray & DVD Discs? I see it can handle .MKV formats is that what most are doing?
My preference is to have an exact copy of the discís if possible as I donít mind the added cost of the extra space it requires and that way you have the bonus material and everything else. But I just canít seem to find anyone that can tell me the possibilities/limitations/requirements.
Speaking from Media Player Functionality OnlyÖ If I have to rip and convert I guess I wonder why I would put in a $2,500 Ė $5,000 machine that essentially a $100 Apple TV can do.
