I'm wondering if there are any codecs I need to download/buy to get the best possible picture/audio.


Right now I rip all my HD media to my HTPC.  I am using Shark 007 codecs and bitstreaming the audio to my receiver.


I see a lot of people buying OPPO BD players because they have better picture.  Is there something I need to do to my HTPC to get the best PQ out there?


I don't want a stand alone player.


When I rip the blurays, I do not do any compression.  A lof of my movies are 20-30gb (some even larger).

The best CODEC pack I've worked with is Shark007.  You can google it, but it's here:
