I'm in the process of converting over all my DVD collection to play on my Apple TV. But I want to do the conversions so that they have the best quality I can get out of them including the 5.1 surround sound. I looked at Handbrake and had nothing but problems with which I think has something to do with me using Snow Leopard. I was using iSkysoft DVD Ripper for Mac but discovered that the 6 ch audio option wasn't really true 5.1 audio so I tried iSkysoft's iMedia Convert which doesn't do anything different. So I'm now looking at iFunia DVD to Apple TV Converter and it does have a 5.1 audio option and it does say "multi" beside the audio channels in the get info from iTunes of the movie that was converted but it doesn't sync with my Apple TV. I get a error when I try to sync it that say's "Movie Name" was not copied to the Apple TV "Apple TV" because it cannot be played on this Apple TV. So does the Apple TV still not support true 5.1 Surround Sound even to this date? One thing I should point out that will lead into another question is that I don't currently have my home theater connected with my Apple TV but plan to in the future. Does the Apple TV need to be connected to a home theater with 5.1 surround sound in order for it to recognize and sync with a movie from iTunes 9 with 5.1 surround sound? Help if you may.
