Hi

I use easy Media Creator 10, mainly "my DVD".

My main use is to convert AVI files downloaded from the internet to DVD files burned onto a DVD disk so I can watch on my normal TV.

The trouble is that I have an old style TV, not widescreen.

Whan I view the DVD the sound and picture quality is excellent.  However, the picture is very small.  Sometimes I get a relatively thin part of the screen around the picture not being used, thats annoying enough, but mostly I have a very large proportion of the screen not being used, giving the impression you are looking through a letterbox.

Is there any way you can copy the files so they show in a standard TV size?

Many Thanks

Ian

The main problem with that is that if you expand it to a standard 4:3 screen size, then the characters and buildings on the screen will all be short and very chubby and thus it would give you the impression that all of them need liposuction for their birthday. You can only change that aspect rate if the support is already there in the AVI file.

Sorry, but that's the extent of it. Sad
