    Handbrake will make this easy if you just ensure you sourse is 1080. However, I'm not sure you really want to do this. On such a small display, you can't see the difference in 1080 or 720 at typical viewing distance. It's a waste of storage, IMO, plus all you transfer times go up.

    I download a lot of .mkv files that are 1080p and I convert using perian and apple QuickTime pro. I export as a .mp4 but as a pass through so the video is untouched and the audio is converted from dts to acc. The image on the retina is remarkable because you aren't recompressing the video.

    Should it take 2-3 hours to convert a movie? I've used DVD Fab and now the trial version of Brorsoft. Both take forever.

    It depends on what you are asking it to do. It can be any where from a bit-perfect copy put in an MKV wrapper from optical media (short, but large files) to a full-blown multi-pass transcode in high profile (long, but small files). Generally, other than bit-perfect copies (which take lots of space when coming off a blu-ray), high-quality transcodes (which compress the content coming off optical media) take a really long time...longer on slower computers, too.

    I tried a 2nd blueray movie today, and it took almost 2.5 hours. Desktop PC has plenty of grunt, cpu is i7 2600K @5ghz with a 580GTX and 16gb dd3 memory, with 2x SSD drives raided + 2gb WD black series Data drive, so certainly not slow.

    Normally standard dvd film rips take around 20mins depending on size & rip settings for a 2hr film and usually are about 1gb in size and look good on the iPad. Having now ripped 2 bluray films, although obviously image quality is better on the iPad3 I really don't think I shall be doing any more. I just don't think the extra quality achieved justifies the extra time to rip blurays and also the 3 or 4 times increase in file size.

    If it's a film I intend to put on the iPad I'm tending more these days to check the films aspect ratio figures on the rear of the DVD boxes before buying, as the iPad is 4x3 aspect some of these modern day releases which are often on 2.40 aspect are really going to be difficult to convert without having large black bars top/bottom, yes you can open them up, or lose the aspect ratio in conversion to get something fuller. Standard widescreen 1.78 and old 4/3 films are obviously not a problem, but these 2.40 aspect releases do mean you'll likely have the bars top/bottom.
