Sorry, forgot that bit. Yeah I had it set to auto rather than locking it to 29.97. I did try a different disk with it set manually and deinterlace after posting that, and frankly the degradation in quality (increase in stairstepping) from the deinterlacing makes it a questionable tradeoff for gettin...

The reason why I didn't bother with using the deinterlace filter is that it does not appear to deinterlace the episodes correctly (nor does Apple's DVD player software handle it elegantly).

Clean formatting for iTV playback is a better description

I think it's fairly obvious that what is desired here is single click ripping into a format that will preserve as much as possible and still play back through the iTV. For my personal use, what I would like to see is the AC3 or DTS soundtrack preserved (or converted, depending on which is supported ...
