    I love 0.9.2 and heard some complaining about the newest version.

    I found a good set up for tv shows like the Simpsons and do not want to go through a re adjustment after finding the the best settings for my iphone via iPod-high Rez setting at 1500 Kbps with Deinterlace set to SLOW with 5th Gen iPod support.

    It's taken me about 6 different tv show settings + encodes to choose from and lots of trial and error to find the best one.

    I do not want to go through this again. Everything is different and I'm confused by the new settings.

    Any advice would help allot.
    :confused:

    The new version is absolutely worth it. There is a new universal preset that is fabulous.

    Ok. I will give it a go. I'm just worried that I'm going to get lost again and end up doing hours of trial and errors to find my favs again.

    Please give more opinion on this topic if you all can. :)

    I'll try and help you make a decision.

    Pros-
    Same great interface
    Faster (slightly)
    much better looking encodes (shout-out to Cav's settings)
    Less buggy
    Free (I still cannot believe this one)
    Cons-
    Ummmm
    OK-here's one. Some developers (you know who you are) get testy when an activity log isn't included (can't blame them, though)

    It's like better tasting beer that costs less. Enough said?
