    Hi

    I am considering getting the ATV but was wondering what the PQ is like when used with a projector.
    My pj has a native 720p which looks like the most the ATV outputs.
    I assume that to run ripped dvd's I will loose some picture quality but how much?

    Cheers EJ

    Your apple TV is restricted to outputting 720p anyway, so yes your right in that regard

    I use Handbrake (On both my Mac and PC ) to convert DVD's to my AppleTV using the AppleTV preset. Haven't noticed significant difference in the quality but this is being fed into 42" Plasma Monitor.

    There is a significant Guide to Apple TV thread in the Mac subforum.
