Hi, I have all the rippers and burning app's that anyone would need -including; MTR, FFmpegX, Handbrake, DivX converter & Toast 9.

Disregarding time and effort, as I'm prepared to put in both, what is the best end format for display on both a 720p (26") LCD screen and a 1080p (50")?
Please also note the aTV is hacked to the limit and can do almost anything!
If one conversion is best, say .mp4, then great.
-please also advise best settings for audio and video if possible
If one conversion is needed for each, what are they?
-please also advise best settings for audio and video if possible

I neither have the space for the hardcopies (DVDs) or the full-size files (Video_TS Folders) and therefore want to compress my collection without losing too much quality.

Thanks,

I use the Apple TV reset in Handbrake, and select 2-pass encoding. The results are pretty darned good on my 32-incher.
