Hello everyone, hope someone can help, I can't seem to find a post anywhere on the net to help me solve my problem.

I am trying to convert an AVI to DVD to watch on tv. Simple I know, I've done it many times but recently I have had a problem with a certain group of AVI's.

The problem is that every month there is a "combat sports ppv fight" which I download the day after. They are always in AVI format and I use toast to burn them and all my other downloaded movies to dvd. I always download movies as ISO's and they come out great for my dvd player and tv. The problem is these fights in AVI format, they are always 624x352 and when I burn them to DVD and try to watch it on my tv, the format shows a little tiny screen in the upper left corner of my tv. This is very annoying as it takes a couple of hours to convert the AVI and also the wasted dvd. When I put the DVD in my mac, the DVD player turns on and it plays fine, but I would like to watch these fights on my big screen with my surround sound.

So, my question is, is there another converter/burn software other than toast that would work for me or is there a setting in toast that I can't seem to find (even though I've gone through it countless times) that will resize these AVI's so I can watch them on my tv??? Thanks to any help.

Doug

Well, at least one of them was.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
