Re: Trying to answer the original question on this thread

I have been trying out some settings so I thought I would add some more to this thread incase anyone finds it helpful. Firstly, my setup is simple an ATV connected to my HDTV (37" plasma which supports 1080i and 720p but not 1080p). ...which means it's 720p, so use that setting, not 1080i. "Supporti...

Not sure if this will work?

I thought you needed a .m4v file for Apple TV, but this gives you an .mp4 file.

Anamorphic on Apple TV

Thanks again jbrjake. I checked out your instructions but they do seem to require a basic level of understanding which is currently beyond me. I have tried the alternative of opening the anamorphic file from 0.8.0b1 and changing the aspect ratio in QT. This doesn't seem to work. QT will only save th...

Thanks Rodney

I think you must mean the link for "Subversion Repository. I followed that and it's way beyond me to work out what to do with all those files so I guess I'd better just wait for the next release. Thanks anyway.

Probably a stupid question but...

...where can you download the source from 'cos I can't find any links to it on the website? Which compiler do you use? Is this something a relative novice (not compiled anything for 10 years, and even then it was a DOS programme to control a robot, which I guess is quite different to this :? ) can d...

jbrjake, Thanks for that great reply, like the other guy said, it answers so many questions in the one place. You mentioned about compiling the latest build which should handle the anamorphic issue. Am I right in thinking that only registered developers have access to the source code to do this? Wou...

Trying to answer the original question on this thread

It seems a bit like this thread has gone on a bit of a tangent mainly relating to 5.1 surround etc. I'm a bt of a noob TBH and I would realy like some advice on how to setup Handbrake in a way that suits an Apple TV setup. Firstly, my setup is simple an ATV connected to my HDTV (37" plasma which sup...

I had the exact same problem...

I thought Scart RGB was the same as component but it isn't. I decided to bite the bullet and convinced the Mrs. that we need a HDTV. Got a Panasonnic TH37PX70 37" plasma and I have to say I don't regret it. The Apple TV is great by the way. Both the synching and streaming work flawlessly and even he...
