I have reproduced this using (2) authoring products so I am thinking the issue is with the video rather than the software. The (2) products I have used are: Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 Sonic RecordNow! 5 I have burned (2) video formats, WMV and MPEG-1, that have the same properties: Resolution: 320x240 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 The result is the outer 1/2" to 1" is cutoff when playing on a TV but the same video plays fine on a computer monitor. I have changed various settings with both products but no changes addressed the issue. I also have Windows Media Encoder and WinAVI Video Converter but do not see any options that would apply. Any help anyone can provide would be appreciated.
