i have been using windows dvd maker to burn movies. and in the program there is an option to set the dvd to 4:3 or 16:9. i have a widescreen tv, so naturally, i have been setting it to 16:9 format. the problem is that when i play it, it looks squished on the tv, and there are two black bars on the left and right sides of the picture. any ideas??[/QUOTE]
Widescreen format there are two blank black bars on the top and bottom of the movie not the sides. So I don’t know what kinda software and if your using pal or nstc format. Could be a setting problem.
