HandBrake can through error messages and give you no options (blank) in the Title drop-down because it cannot get past the Content Scramble System (CSS).  Or the resulting video is all garbled.

The best solution I have found is to install XBMC somewhere (doesn’t have to be on the same machine) and copy the libdvdcss-2.dll file out of the XBMC\system\players\dvdplayer folder and into the Handbrake installation folder.

Update: Easiest to just copy the libdvdcss-2.dll from here: http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.11/win64/libdvdcss-2.dll 
Rename it to libdvdcss.dll and copy it to the HandBrake installation folder.

That seems to allow HandBrake to read and rip the disk properly.

I have just compiled the steps that worked for me here all in one page (with screen shots).

The first thing you are going to need is the Cisco RNG200 bin file.  That can be downloaded here or here.

That file needs to be saved in your C:\Program Files\Sling Media\SlingPlayer\SBAV folder.

Goto Setup Assistant on your Slingbox.  And Select Configure Video Sources.

Setup-Asst

Select your Connection and Choose Cable Box.

Cable-Box

Select Comcast as the manufacture and Other for the model.

Comcast-Other

Make sure the Lineup is correct, and hit next.  And now you will have to select your code to be able to control your DC50X DTA.  In the Select Code box, select Custom and type in C2000.  Then hit the Power button to test.  Remember that the DC50X does not turn off, this will not turn off the box.  But it will upload the RNG200 bin file.  If you get an error message, make sure you have saved the RNG200 bin file in the correct place.

Code

Now just finish up the Setup Assistant, and you will be good.

Why would you want to, you ask? Because FLAC is a Lossless Format. So your music sounds much better.

First you will need the FLAC Codec (Here)

Then you will need a ripper, I use Audiograbber (Here)

Then you will need the Codec to play (Here)

To “Timeshift” pandora radio, you need Pandora’s Jar. It can be a bit complicated to get started, until now.

Here are the Windows installers to get Pandora’s Jar working.

This may work on other Motorola Phones as well.

1) Change the extention of the mp3 you want to use to .mid

2) Copy the .mid to your memory card

3) Make a playlist.

4)Mark the playlist(highlight it and press 0) and the song(s) you want to be stored on the phone’s memory.

5)Highlight the playlist and press the menu button and select “copy marked files” and let it load

Now switch storage devices and use your new ringers as you please.
As far as I can tell, you can delete the playlist now. You just needed that to allow you to copy.
