Hi,

Ive been using handbrake for several years now to convert my dvd's & downloads to MV4 to watch on my Apple TV 1 without a problem.
For some unknown reason, anything new I convert now will not play on my ATV even though it shows up in iTunes.

I have messed about and tried several things & the only thing that seems to work is...........
1/ convert film & place into iTunes (it will play in iTunes but not on ATV)
2/ Reset ATV to factory settings
3/ Spend an hour updating then it will show up.

This has happened with the last 10-12 films & I,m not doing anything different.
Can anybody help.

Regards,

Jeff

I was using the free download but could not get the video info from that
so I bought the programme from the app store..... That seamed to work.

Cheers, Jeff
