I did a pretty thorough search and couldnt find the specifics I was looking for. I have a ton of Bluray rips on my iMac. 100% of them came from Netflix blurays that I ripped with MakeMKV then converted to m4v with Handbrake (h.264 full 1080p) to help conserve space. The m4v files look absolutely perfect. I stream them to my Mini connected to my HDTV no problems. This solution has been working perfectly for me until my wife mentioned wanting to watch movies upstairs where I dont have a media renderer like the Mini or a PS3. So I searched online and found the Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Media Player. The concept seems nice, it claims to support a bunch of formats up to 720p/1080i. MPEG-1, -2, -4, DivX, Xvid. In comes my issue. I dropped a bunch of my bluray rips on there and none of them played. I remembered that the box said 720p or 1080i so I converted a couple to 720p h.264 but they still didnt work. So I tried to convert one with the MPEG video encoder, the file plays but it looks hideous! Am I doing something wrong here? I tried multiple settings with the mpeg encoder and they all look like crap. I mean no where even close to HD. Can anyone tell me if my issue is with the MPEG encoder or am I just missing a setting that should clean these up? Anyone have any recommended settings for something like this? Thanks in advance for the assistance!
