    With the DivX QuickTime codec installed, iMovie will accept [DivX-encoded] avi files without conversion.

    You could check out iSquint. How great does the quality need to be?

    I think iSquint has a TV setting. Don't know how it would translate as I only convert movies for my iPod. If you've tried it, how has it turned out?
