I am new to Handbreak and AppleTV. When I play the Iron Man DVD on my 52" LCD it shows black bars (pretty large) on top and bottom (not all of my DVD's do this). I could not find a setting on my DVD Player to remove them (I am using a XBOX 360 to play the DVD). When I use Handbreak to rip it and then played the M4V File on my AppleTV it had the same black bars. In the end I use the ZOOM Feature on my TV to play the movie in full screen. Normally I don't like ZOOM but it was "ok" for this viewing. I was hoping that Handbreak would have a feature to remove the blackbars so that it would play in full screen. I left the CROP Setting to AUTO. Anybody else convert Iron Man and what did you do. I am using the GUI Interface on Windows. Most of my other DVD's seem to convert and play in full screen. Maybe they play the same with the DVD as well so Handbreak is really not doing anything to change it.
