Encoding for AppleTV

I've been encoding some old 720x576/1.25 AVIs in order to get them on my AppleTV. This has taken a few attempts - here's what I've learnt (I'm using Handbrake):
- max resolution is 1280x720
- max framerate is 24fps
- max bit rate is 5Mb/s
I'm using the H.264 codec and am using Handbrake's 'decomb' filter to remove the interlace artifacts. They show up in the ATV as HD content and actually look pretty good.
