Hi quick question,

It seems that the Apple TV supports up to 160kbps audio as it says on the spec page.

Does this mean that if I had encoded movies with handbrake at 256kbps, it wont work with Apple TV?

Thank you in advance.

Handbrake uses FAAC for its AAC encoding, so if you are encoding to 2-channel AAC, you're only using ~80kbps per channel, or 160kbps total anyways.
