Hello everyone, I have just ordered a ATV2 for my parent. I have loads of 1080p movies of about 10GB each, all of them are MKV's. Now I have installed handbrake to convert files so I can put them in iTunes. Handbrake seems to be a nice program but I am not sure what the best Apple tv settings are. The is a ATV2 preset, however, at the botom it says: "Picture size: Source: 1920x816, Output: 1280x544, Anamorphic: 1280x544 Loose, etc" I thought the apple tv could output 720p? so why do only 544 in the preset? What is the best setting for keeping the highest possible quality of the movie for playing on the Apple TV? Another problem is the file has no meta-data on it, so it probably won't have cover art, genre, etc... Now I found another program called MetaZ. I found out it works nicely together with handbrake. You can send the file directly to metaZ after it is completed converting. Now the problems/questions are: 1) I will have to convert all my movies, which will take ages (i only have core i5 MBA) 2) I will have to add the metadata manually, which will take ages too... 3) What are the best settings in handbrake when converting movies to apple tv format if you don't want to loose much quality But the is more. I know you can jailbreak the Apple TV, my parent however are not sure about it yet whether to do it or not. I know all the nice add-ons when jailbreaking the apple tv, like plex, XBMC (with Icefilms) and other stuff. Now I have been using plex for quite a while on my mac and I really love it. So maybe I will install this for my parents and create a plex server on their iMac. However I read about some problems with the audio when using plex? Any of you having problems with 1080p MKV. AC3.DTS movies? Thanks for any comments on this!
