I noticed that if I convert a 2.7 aspect ration wide screen movie that DivXtoDVD (when set to automatic) will chop off the ends and convert to a 1.8 ratio (16:9). Is there a way to maintain the original aspect ratio?
what version are you using? the latest (1.99.23)? try forcing the aspect ration you want and see if the result is any different, you could also post you log file here.
Apparently you can only select 4:3 or 16:9 as those are DVD standards.
