    Had the Macbook for a few months now and Apple TV for a year or so...just upgraded to iMovie 09 and thought I would put a few of my 720P video files together to make a holiday video. All went well until it came to outputting to my Apple TV in a format it likes? I seem to be able to out .mov, but for reasons unknown Apple have decided the ATV won't support this...slowly understanding that the whole "Apple" family of gadgets may well not be as compatible and wonderful as they first appeared...any help would be appreciated.

    The Apple TV does support the .mov container. More than likely you are running into the resolution/framerate limits of the Apple TV. It does 720p, but only at 24fps. Try importing your 720p video into iMovie at 540p.
