    Howdy people,

    PLease can anyone help?

    Using iDVD within iLife 09, can anyone tell me what setting to play with so that when I play a my DVD on my widescreen TV (through a DVD player) IT DOES NOT CHOP OFF THE EDGES OF MY MOVIE!

    Can you be more descriptive? Chop off - is the footage looking like a square in the center of the screen (4:3)? Does it look widescreen but the edges (or the tops and bottoms) are cut off? Is the footage widescreen? If it's widescreen, did you tick the 16:9 setting in iDVD? Have you checked the footage prior to importing into iDVD to make sure it looks right?

    Also note that if you watched your burned DVD on a TV you always lose some information on the edges (Safe Areas).
    This however depends on the television you have (CRT or LCD/TFT/Plasma etc).
