    I've been having problems syncing up a movie (Star Wars V). On the desktop it plays perfectly, but through the appletv the audio plays at ~10X speed (so after about 15 minutes there's no audio and poor Luke is hanging around on Hoth without making a sound.

    I used the 0.9.2 handbrake to encode, and when viewing the movie, the audio track selected was 4.1 sound (a little odd), so I suspect it's not properly decrypted (same issue can happen whether it's straight from the DVD or ripped - anydvd in the background).

    All the other movies are fine. Any ideas?

    Empire is a special case. If you pull it back into handbrake and take a look at the audio, you'll see that it shows up as Dolby Digital 4.0 instead of 5.1.

    The solution- that works- is to process the rip through DVD2OneX2 first and then send it through Handbrake. This will work.
