    I just got an iPhone and i am using it instead on my iPod touch. I record my tv shows on my DVR and transfer them to my Mac laptop without a problem. Whats the best way to get these shows on my iPhone? I cant drag the .avi files to iTunes, i tried using handbrake and it is fine but takes to long to convert them to an itunes compatible format.

    Is there a better way?

    Thanks in advance.

    Usually no. The conversion from avi to anything depends on the power of your computer. Unfortunately, it could take a while. Your better bet is to try and see if there is a way to record onto your DVR and transfer to something more compatible with iTunes right away. I don't know whether this is possible but it's worth looking into.
