    Anyone encounter the following issue?

    I used eyetv 250 plus to record a HD show (about 50 mins), used handbrake to convert to apple tv format (eyetv's conversion tool is horrible, adds a lot of 'stutter' and slight lag sometimes), then tried synching my apple tv - and I get the error:

    "..." was not copied to the Apple TV "..." because it cannot be played on this Apple TV.

    :(

    Btw...

    BTW - the show DOES play successfully in iTunes after conversion.

    make sure that the picture size is compatible with the atv's maximum res. the atv preset was created *before* HB could scan HD sources, so you will have to scale it down.

    Ah - gotcha - do you know what ATV max res is off your head?
