    Hi.
    I just made my first Apple purchase at lunch today...an Apple TV. A good friend of mine recommended it to me and has for months now. I finally bought one today because of our nice tax return and my recent purchase of a new Panasonic Plasma.

    My buddy has his movies very nice and neat with artwork, description, rating, etc. He uses MetaX which is for Mac only. I do not have a mac (yet) so I am wondering if there are good programs like this for windows. I searched for about an hour total and didn't really find anything other than some Mac programs.

    As far as Take 2, it looks as though we will have 5.1 sound once it is release, however, I don't believe there is anything that can support converting to 5.1 for apple TV currently? At least in Windows?

    Lastly, I have some mkv files and I know most users use VisualHub for Mac, but what can be used in Windows to convert to Apple TV format?

    Thanks for your time.

    I tried that last night and couldn't get the artwork tab to show up. Not sure what I was doing wrong. Also, everything was greyed out too when I opened up an mp4?

    Any answers to the other questions? Anyone?

    I use atomicparsley (the dos command line) and it works well.

    Unfortunately most of the links there no longer work or at least didn't last night for Windows.
    Hopefully will have more time tonight to mess with this. I refuse to use a CLI tool. :D
