    So I was cleaning my office this weekend, and I found a hard drive that has some video files on it... I am a HUGE Boston Red Sox fan, and in 2004 I had a Windows PC with a TV tuner card, and I recorded all 4 World Series games.

    So what I want to do is get them into iTunes to play on my ATV3. I took a quick second to look at one video, and the quality is ok, but of course it's in SD. So all I want to do is get it into iTunes. What method would be the best, while not loosing any quality of the video? I do have Handbrake so I can transcode it with that if I have to.

    Thanks!!

    yup use handbreak or another free video converter and make it h.264/mpeg-4 using a mp4 or m4v file type

    Could I just use a preset? And if so, which one?

    Even though I am an IT guy, I'm not too hip on video decoding/transcoding.

    Thanks!!
