That’s an excellent point.
My 1080p means Blu-Ray source run through HandBrake (0.9.5) using the aTV 2 preset, which now that I think about it, scales it down to 720p.
I don’t have a clue if it’ll handle upscale, high-bandwidth 1080p formats. /
So, now I have to encode one using the High Profile preset and see how my 1st Gen Mini handles it.
That’s a good way to pass some time on Saturday.
I had an original aTV hooked up as a media PC in the living room. Chaffed by the limitations of the aTV, I swapped in a Mini that was connected to the Drobo for all the media.
I never had a moments problem with the Mini. Played every format I threw at it.
By far, however, it was ripped DVD’s and BDs from my library and purchased content from iTunes.
I’m going to re-rip Sunshine as a High Profile and see how it handles it.
