    HI there,
    I need some help please.

    I am using ImTOO DVD Ripper Ultimate 6 to rip TV Episodes from DVD to Xvid to play on my XBOX 360 through Media Center, they appear to play ok but the video is not as good as if I have downloaded them elsewhere at the same size.
    I like my avi's in Xvid and a 45-46 min episode around 350MB
    Settings I am using are:

    Video Codec: Xvid
    Video Size: 512x384
    Bitrate: 905k
    Frame Rate: 25fps
    Zoom: Letterbox
    Aspect Ratio: Auto

    I used another program called 123 DVD Converter and that was great but that took 30 mins to rip a episode and the sizes of my avi files ranged from 230MB - 430MB for a 46 min episode, ImTOO DVD Ripper takes only 10 - 15 mins to rip a episode.

    I am playing the avi files on a 32" LCD TV with full screen enabled on the XBOX 360

    Can some one please give me some advice on the best settings to use?
    I't seems to look ok on the PC in a small window of Media Player but when I full screen it I think it is when the quality changes.

    Cheers
    Clayton

    First of all, lose the Letterbox thing. Normal aspect ratio is 16:9 with most series these days.

    What should I replace Letterbox with? Medium, Pan & Scan or Full (Keep aspect ratio)?
    The series are Murder, She Wrote from 1984 which is 4:3 I think
    Also how would I keep the audio in sync? it's just a tad out.
