A bit confused as to what i should do. There is so many topics on the forum and when your not sure what you are doing they all seem to blend into one and get a bit messy. I have heaps of movies on my iMac which i watch via Apple TV2. Once i have watched them i want to remove...not delete...but remove either onto an external hard drive or compress a few movies and burn on a dvd. The dvd's i have a DVD-R 16x/4.7GB/120min. Which program would allow me to compress a few movies and then burn on a dvd. I have new external hard drive, never been used. If i start to transfer movies across to the external hard drive, will i still be able to access and play directly via apple tv2 or do i need to transfer back across to the iMac before i can watch again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
