I plan on connecting my MBP to my TV using DVI out and optical out. Note that I haven't actually tried to hook anything up yet- this is all speculative.

So I was ripping DVDs with Handbrake using the Apple TV settings, but then I heard that most receivers don't handle AAC format. I know that there's a hidden AC3 stream that handbrake includes. Will my receiver be able use this stream easily? or do I need to change some settings?

Also I considered just ripping everything as MKV's with AC3 audio- then in QTP saving those files at .MOV files. Is there really any drawback to doing this? Just seems like it would be a better choice for me - since I'm not using the Apple TV.

Also is there anything else I should keep in mind? Thanks
