    I have a TV series that I've recorded myself & Encoded with Handbrake, Tagged with MetaX. It has the cnIDs & HD Tags set properly.
    In iTunes, when I choose the 'SD' version it plays the smaller one (480x272) & when I choose 'Default' or 'HD' it plays the larger one (576x320). So I know the HD tags are on the right files.
    The problem is that when it syncs to my iPod it syncs the one set to play by default (HD) in iTunes, or the one selected for the individual file to play by default. So when I play it in iTunes I have to change the version first or play the low-res one.

    Since I created the smaller sized one only for use on my iPod (It's 165MB compared to 256MB & my iPod Nano 3G only holds 4GB) I would like to know if there's a way to get iTunes to sync the lower resolution one to my iPod without re-encoding the larger one to something my iPod can't play?
