Thanks for your reply Foxy...
I obviously check my mkv rips after ripping but usually just by clicking through about 4-5 points in the film, via VLC.
Are you saying after 15 mins approx, of continuous playback the audio will stop?
Becuase clicking beyond the 15 mins mark, (say I click at 10, 30, 60 and 90) when testing I get audio at every step?
The graphics on the Lenovo system i mentioned above are integrated Intel, so built-in.
Do you still think they'll be okay for ripped HD playback / streaming from a NAS?
The audio mutes after fifteen to twenty minutes of continous playback, checking various points for a few minutes at a time won't show up the Cinavia issue, not all discs are protected by Cinavia but its been implemented on players and discs including many PC software players and media servers since mid 2012,it first became a requirement to get a B licence in Feb 2012, Wikipedia can give you more info on it.
The good news is that if you can buy a system that pre-dates Feb 2012 ( sometimes a few months later than this ) and the media server/PC software player/BD drive has not had a firmware update then it cannot read the Cinavia code on the disc and thus the protection does not kick in, the bad news is that newer discs can require a firmware update to play them thus Cinavia is updated onto the player/media server/software player at the same time as everything else is updated.
I think the system would be fine even though its integrated graphics, you will just run into some issues with Cinavia.
