    Sorry if it;s been asked before. I have 2 x original ATV's and 1 x ATV2 - either in living room or kids bedrooms

    Anyways - when using handbrake to burn my DVD collection should I use ATV2 or ATV setting so I get best picture on both ATV and ATV2?

    Thanks and apologies for being lazy - quick search didn't really show me much

    files converted using the TV2 preset won't work on TV1.

    use the TV1 preset if you want to view the files on both.

    If you want the file to play on both the ATV and the ATV2 then use the ATV preset. Because the ATV2 preset uses CABAC which the original ATV wont play.

    Edit:- Just beat me Jolly Giant:D
