    that's what i'm doing, and the quality of my old, edited hi 8 videos look fine, but only about 2 minutes of the qt reference get translated over to the mp4 format. all the footage is in the qt reference (about 20 minutes) but the finished file is only about 2 minutes. I'm new to the apple tv2, so if i'm missing something obvious, forgive me.

    Reference files are meant to be played back on the same system, ie the same computer. I don't think that they can be used for streaming to another device.

    I think if you save to a self-contained movie, you'll be fine.

    I'm not sure what apps you are using, and which are creating the reference file. Avid, iFlicks, Roadmovie, etc....

    I read a post from the iFlicks creator that the reference movie only works for playback in iTunes but will not stream to the AppleTV 2.

    You should resave the ref movie in QuickTime, HandBrake and all the others app that uses ffmpeg to read a mov file can't read reference file with multiple references.
