    Just wondering what you guys thought... I am waiting to encode my episodes of Lost, 24, Heroes, ect that are big with audio and sound effects. But I don't want to encode these until either VisualHub is able to export .mp4 or MetaX can tag .mov's, but either way, I am waiting to encode these episodes with 5.1. Yet, I have a ton of The Office episodes to encode, along with Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm. These are mostly dialogue, so I don't know if retaining the 5.1 in them is even worth it. I just want to start encoding ASAP and was wondering would it be beneficiary to wait until I can keep the 5.1 with The Office or should I just do it now with the regular Apple TV preset, not 5.1

    I think it would be best to hold off on encoding till both teams release a stable application.
