    I'm getting a bit frustrated trying to find info about what rip settings will work (and work well) with the Apple TV. I'd really appreciate anyone with an Apple TV (I haven't got mine yet) taking a few moments to see whether the settings below will play...

    Original DVD is full-frame 4:3 (non-anamorphic) PAL TV show ("Yes, Minister", if you're interested). I am using MediaFork to rip.

    File Format: AVC/H.264 Video/AAC Audio
    Framerate: Same as source
    Encoder: x264 (h.264 Main)
    2-Pass encoding
    Average bitrate: 1500 kbps
    De-interlace: On
    Source: 720 x 576
    Output: 704 x 544 (this is the default size MediaFork produces for this particular DVD)

    Sample rate: 44.1 Hz
    Bitrate: 160 kbps

    Will this work? Please tell me. Please. Please.

    And will it look good? Should I have gone for a higher average bitrate?

    That'll look nice through the ATV. But I'm holding off ripping my DVD collection until 5.1, chapter indexing and subtitles are available for Handbreak/Mediafork.

    Subtitles aren't supported by :apple:TV. How would you turn them on?

    I do wish handbrake would support chapter indexes though...
