    I posted this question before but it never was resolved. I am trying to rip some dvds so I can use them on my apple tv as well as my ipod

    now I use the following settings in handbreak

    - 2 pass encoding
    - turbo first pass
    -insert ipod atom

    the movie rips to my hd and i drop it in my movies section of my it works fine..until i try to put it on my apple tv or on my ipod...any ideas?

    You have to convert it to a MP4 file format - using Codecs MPGEG-4 Video / AAC Audio.

    Are you not getting video or audio... or both?

    I hear no mention of iPod hi red setting?
    Give that a shot and tell us if there are any problems left?

    If an iPod can play it, then the atv can play it. That does not go both ways though.
