I would start with the HQ 1080p30 Surround preset and lower the quality a bit to reach a suitable approximate size, see ... ality.html

You might also see if your TV supports either NTFS or ExFAT format for flash drives, to remove the "under 4GB" size limit imposed by FAT32 format on the flash drive.
