Just a quick question as I'm confused and you guys always seem to have helpful advice. My video library is in several formats and I want to consolidate it all so I don't have to keep converting videos. I have a video iPod (that I rarely watch video on but the option would be nice) I have a HD Dell monitor (which I watch a lot of my movies on) I have a projector (in the living room, Standard Deff but we use it often) ...my video library is stored on an external drive, which is linked to my Airport Base station. I currently stream from that to my mac, when I want to watch a movie downstairs on the projector I have to burn to disk or stream to the PC in the living room (which is about dead) So... I was planning on buying the Apple TV and so here's my question What is the best format and resolution to convert my movies and stuff into so I can play it through my apple TV but not lose too much quality (also I'd like to get the best resolution possible...but I don't know if I can then sync these to my ipod) ...I don't want to have to have a video library, and ipod video library and an apple tv video library any advice?
