Question Apple TV 3 Handbrake Audio


I got my parents an Apple TV 3 for Christmas. I am converting a couple movies to digital format for them on a hard drive.

I noticed the default in handbrake is Dolby Pro Logic II and not Dolby Surround. Is there a reason for this? Currently they don't have surround set up but I know are eventually upgrading. I would like true surround if I could get it. My questions are.

1. If I choose dolby surround is that supported on apple tvs.
2. If they don't have surround for now will both dolby surround and dolby pro logic II settings play correctly over stereo.
3. If I just add an extra audio track of surround is it smart enough to use it when available?
4. What if they put these movies on iPad. I have heard the surround track won't play properly. Is that true?

Thanks so much. I tried searching but I just can't find exactly what I want
