    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.

    I have many of my audio files at 256k and they play fine on my ATV by streaming or sync'ing.
