Cropped DVD image?

Hello everyone.

I downloaded a file from a video camera and burned it onto DVD. The image on the DVD is cropped on all four sides when I play it on my TV! What’s weird is that when I play the DVD on my computer (with VLC media player) the proportions are perfect.

How can I burn this without it being cropped on a TV?

Corollary: How can I preview a burned DVD on my computer that will present itself the way it would on a TV?

Thanks for any replies.

What did you burn with, and what settings did you use. There should have been settings to select the appropriate output size for TV.
