    I have a question about re-encoding in Handbrake. I tried asking in the Handbrake forums, but the people that run that forum never accept my post. Well I encoded several Blurays using a preset that I made and later when I went to watch on my ATV they had the pixel fading issue that was introed with the new version of handbrake, which you can fix by putting :weightp=0 in the options of the video. Anyways, how can I re-encode these without the original MKV's since I deleted them and have no loss in quality and no huge file. I tried using my preset and just bumped the quality to 100% but then I went from a 4GB file to a 20GB file. Any help at all would be appreciated.

    I don't think you can re-encode without noticeable loss in quality--can't say that I've tried but I've read numerous other posts suggesting against it.

    Best suggestion is to just re-rip the blu-rays and start over.

    Yeah I was afraid I was going to have to do that.

    Just re-encode them with the Apple TV preset. Unless you're one of "those" people who sit 3 feet from your TV looking for faults you'll be happy with the result.
