Novice question about HMDI Music Serv. Ap.

I am currently using a Pioneer DV-58AV Universal Player.
Love listening to Multi-Channel High Rez. SACD/DVD-Audio
Downmixes via Disk. Would like to go Music Server Ap.
with these Multi-Channel Disks. Manual says that DV-58AV
HMDI will carry DSD, Multi-Channel SACD/DVD-Audio Digital
Files. Has anyone ever tried HDMI from DVD Player to rip copies to PC/Music Server of said Multi-Channel Disks?
Is there any kind of HDMI adapter or Input installation for
PC/Music Servers? How would the sound quality compare with
USB, or other means of connection in same application?
Would you be better off with a Universal DVD Player with a
USB Output?

AFAIK, there is no easy way to rip mch SACD, either as DSD or as PCM. I, also, do not believe that there are servers (for the consumer) that will handle lossless mch, although some are said to handle mch flac, if you can play that format.

Believe me, I have been looking into this for a while. If anyone comes up with a solution, I am on it.
