    Hey guys. Thats my problem.

    My camera is only capable of shooting in default PAL size (not widescreen). In order to get 16x9 dimentions I cut the whole movie in Final Cut Pro. Now I burn DVD with the ready video. The iDVD theme looks ok (4x3), but video is stretched to fill the entire screen on 4x3 TV so that everything looks tall.

    While playing this DVD on computer after menu window becomes wider and it plays 16x9 video just fine.

    I tried changing picture format on my DVD player to 16x9 but it didnt help. The video was still stretched.

    Any advice?
