    I've ripped Revenge of the Sith to a dvdmedia file and am having trouble encoduing it for Apple TV with the last nightly load of Handbrake. Am I doing something wrong?

    I transcoded Sith a couple of years ago with Handbrake so there shouldn't be a problem with it (unless your rip is bad). When you say you have "trouble", what exactly do you mean? Are you using the Apple TV preset in Handbrake?

    Thanks guys. You were right, my rip was bad. I was using a trial version of MacDVDRipperPro and I went ahead and bought the program (which I like very much). I cleaned the disk and re-ripped Sith and Handbrake encoded it for the AT2 with no problem.

    This is my first time ripping and encoding movies so I wasn't sure if Sith was a known problem disk. Before I re-ripped it, Handbrake would hang up and never finish the encoding. Trial and error but I got it to work. They look great via the ATV2 on my 40" plasma and the 5.1 DD soundtrack sounds great.
