Using PD 14 on Windows 10 I burn a DVD using Cyberlink Burn from a Produced .mpg video Edited & Produced in 4:3 format. The result on a 16:9 TV is that the video is stretched top/bottom. The .mpg video plays correctly on the pc. No settings have been altered on the Panasonic BlueRay Player and other dvd's are correctly sized.

I recall this problem occurring before but cannot find my notes about settings ... sorry, its some time since I used the programme. I have searched for specific comment but without success. Should I burn the 4:3 .mpg in 16.9 to obtain the correct shape? Or given it is a Panasonic DVD Player then perhaps I should use AVCHD Produce and burn this ... I recall that Panasonic can accept AVCHD.

Bit confused and hope someone can straighten me out.

I have burned discs both as 4:3 and as 4:3 in a 16:9 frame, permanently creating pillar boxes. I prefer 4:3 au natural.
If the TV does not recognise it as expected you have to use the TV clicker/remote to alter the viewing aspect. I don't think it's a PD issue, it's a TV issue. I will happily allow myself to be corrected but I believe I am right. My website http://bgillcyberstudio.com/index.html LINKS TO PDTOOTS & hundreds of other valuable resources!

Thanks Barry ... I will use up some more discs to see if I can solve it. Strange really because all of my past DVD's have played correctly, though I seem to recall about a year ago I had difficulty after I had upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 ut that might have been a compatibility issue with PD14/W10 at that time.

Go to Create Disc/2D Disc and post a screenshot of the full page. It is possible that someone may see a change in setting that may help since you said that “Strange really because all of my past DVD's have played correctly”.

In between posts I have solved it! My initial attempts had Burn Settings with no Menu preference and, for reasons that I cannot fathom out, wrong scaling occurred. My last test settings included a Menu Preference (Travel) and scale at 16:9 (for the 4;3 Edit) and was OK. I am shortly going to change my early generation i7 laptop with a current i7 version and will revisit this issue to see if it was perhaps some 'clash' between a W7/W10 upgrade and PD14.

Thanks to both of you for taking time out to assist. Much appreciated. CYa Ron (W10/i5gen8/Nvidia)
