I'd probably keep HD material to the dimensions of the screen tbh, but you wouldn't upscale DVD. It's all about getting the right balance between resolution and compression.

Ah it seems you can use High Profile settings on the iPad, I found this makes for significantly smaller file sizes compared to Normal.

Just as a test I transferred a 4.5GB video file (very sharp picture) into a 720 pixel wide file that ended up at 1GB

Viewed it on my 24" widescreen monitor afterwards, and ok, if you flipped between on and the other you could see the original was a bit sharper and a little less colour banding/blocking in some plain areas, but on a 10" screen, I'd imagine it would be hard to spot the difference.

Hopefully can go down less than 1GB per movie and it still look good on the iPads display.

Arghhhhh !!!!

For god's sake Apple, if you are going to ban apps that allow people to sync by WiFi rather than plugging a piece of wire into their portable WiFi devices you make, at least create your own software to do the job for your loyal customers.

I have DVD's converted to MP4 that I watch on a 50" plasma that are less than 1GB in size. Granted, I'm not holding my TV up to my nose.

I thought it was announced that OS4 will have wireless syncing?

If you really want wireless syncing then just jailbreak and get it that way. Jailbreaking is pretty much a 5 min process these days.

How about Gold & diamond Shiny Shiny Shiny Shiny?
