I had this issue today. Latest iTunes 7.3.2, and latest SVN version of Handbrake. Used Apple TV preset, no custom settings. Added artwork via iTunes and it displayed in iTunes but would not display in Apple TV. I used QT Pro to export the HB .m4v as an MPEG-4 Movie with video and audio passthru set...

After struggling with Deja Vu for days, I finally got a good backup copy using MTR beta > DVD2OneX2 > HB CLI.

Thanks to all for the advice in this thread.

I had this problem with Eragon. The MTR ripped copy on disk was fine, but the HB .mv4 (Apple TV) dropped the audio at chapter 3. I used MPEG Streamclip to open the MTR rip and fix timecode breaks, then had it export to MPEG-4. It plays fine now on ATV with no audio dropouts. So I'm not sure if it's ...

I just found the fix.

When I import+sync the movie using the default .mp4 extension that HB generates, the movie is listed in the ATV menu 5 times.

If I simply change the file extension of the same file to .m4v and then import+sync, it is only listed once in the menu.

Multiple Listings on ATV Movies Menu

I downloaded the latest version of HB today and tried the ATV preset. I've used it on 2 movies, and for both of them, when they're synced to Apple TV the titles are listed 5 times each in the Movies Menu.

Anyone else experience that? Is there a way to fix that? I never had that problem with MF.

Here is another article which, if true, indicates it is a hardware problem for receivers, not appleTV. But, in any case, where this all leads is anyone guess. http://roughlydrafted.com/RD/RDM.Tech.Q1.07/147048D8-D8B7-45E7-9A97-3CD5B4C2B75A.html That "Ten Myths" article seemed to me to be the best e...

Those times seem crazy. I have a 2.66 ghz quad core Mac Pro with 4 GB RAM and I can rip a movie with H.264 2-pass @ 2000 kbps usually in 1 - 2 hours.

I just tested it again. With a 2 hour movie, it took 1 hour 45 minutes to rip with MediaFork 0.8.0b1.

I've been using the AC3 5 ch audio encoding, and have the Apple TV connected with optical audio. I haven't had any audio dropouts yet, but have spent most of time testing video settings, not audio. Dro: are you using MediaFork 0.8.0b1 and passing-through a Dolby Digital AC3 track (i.e. not extracti...

Yes, if you delete the .mp4 artwork first you can then add any artwork you want and it displays in Apple TV fine. You can do this in iTunes. Of course, any changes you make after syncing will require a resync. I've been testing using "Parsley is Atomically Delicious" to set description, artwork, etc...
