I am using the latest Handbrake release, and it has Apple TV pre-set. Is this the best possible quality rip for apple tv? I havent played the one rip I made on the tv (46" samsung). I did quickly scanned through it on my computer and it was far from "dvd quality". I was hoping there was a way to bump up the picture, file size and time are not factors.

Thank You

I too use Handbrake to rip to my ATV. I find that on my Sony HDTV it's fine, I have taken the default ATV settings and created my own profile with the 2 pass setting enabled.

2-pass encoding is a must. You will get major artifacts in action scenes without it. I also bump the average bitrate up to 2000kbps.

Using these settings in Handbrake and using the Apple Tv presets in Visual hub I'm getting little horizontal lines in the picture. They are small but visual enough to bother me.

Any ideas?

Mostly this happens when going from a video_ts to a Apple tv friendly format.

I would actually try lowering the average bitrate down to 2000 kbps in HandBrake. That is my default.
