So i've decided to rip my dvds to the appletv but I am having a problem with my encodes and I think it might just be that I am using the wrong settings. I use MTR to rip the main feature then encoding using handbrake with appletv settings (slightly tweaked) I keep framerate same as source (29.97), x264 with 2 pass encoding at 2500 bitrate. For audio I use DTS 5.1 and select 6 channel discrete. One of the problems I am having is the video has a lot of lines during fast action scenes. It looks like some sort of interlace problem. Do I need to deinterlace this video? Im not sure how to tell which of my dvds need to be deinteraced and which do not. The other issue is with the audio. I have a pioneer elite receiver thats connected to the appletv using optical digital connection but my receiver says it is only receiving a stereo signal. Movies I have rented are coming through fine with 5.1. Anyway, Im thinking I dont have some settings right for the encode and I did do a search but I couldnt find the answers I needed. Also, my apple tv is modded but the only thing i've added was perian to play back divx and xvid. Any help would be appreciated. thanks to all!
