    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
