Hello, I am new to these forums and I had a question.

I received the iPod touch for the holidays, and Ive been using Handbrake to convert some of my movies on DVD to the iPod. Ive found that that program works well, and I would like to do the same thing with some of the TV shows I have on DVD (South Park, Family Guy, etc) RATHER than spend 2 bucks an episode on iTunes for it. My question is if anyone had done this, and if so, how.

Currently for the movies I have on it, I set it to iPod LowRez, with the video setting bitrate at 300 and the audio at 86. That seems to take up as little memory as possible while still having good enough picture quality (I have the 16 GB, so memory isnt THAT big an issue)

Thanks for any help!

You can do that with Handbrake. Put the DVD in Select it in the Sources and choose the Title you want to rip. just like doing a DVD Movie.
