Does anyone know of a program that I can use to convert all my AVI files to Mpeg4 so I can watch on my Apple TV?

This is the problem with "AVI" -- it's a container, not a format. Files inside it could (literally) be in any combination of a huge range of video and audio codecs, which is why some AVI files play nicely and some don't.
So I guess the answer is "no" -- but VisualHub hasn't let me down yet. Handbrake (with VLC) should also be able to handle nearly everything. What programs have you tried, so we don't spend pages and pages suggesting the couple of dozen programs out there that do this?

There has been reports about HB not supporting .avi files anymore. They stopped it in 0.9.3 and the same time they stopped supporting ripping.
On saying that though Handbrake still converts .avi ?? Why ?? Not sure but the latest version will still do it. And to top it off HB is one if not the cleanest and best converter i have played with....
Have no problems setting my cues up and then set the Toggle preset at ATV
