    I've ripped all my DVDs into my iTunes library using Handbrake. Before I got my iPhone I ripped them all at a higher quality that was compatible with my AppleTV. Since then I've started ripping them in a format that is compatible with both my AppleTV and my iPhone.

    In the previous version of iTunes, when I wanted to sync my iPhone, the movies that were originally coded for the AppleTV and could not be played on the iPhone would be grayed out, so I knew not to try syncing them to the iPhone. Now with iTunes 9, none of the movies are grayed out. They all appear as if they could sync, but when I try and sync them I get an error saying some movies could not be played and have not been synced.

    Anyone know of a way to have those that can't be played on the iPhone (or an iPod for that matter) to show up grayed out again, like in the old version?

    I have this problem. For me, though, it's the kick in the pants that I need to finally go back and run my non-iphone compliant movies through VisualHub and make them iPhone friendly.

    Guess what I'm doing this weekend...
