You know when you play a wide screen dvd in a standard 4:3 tv. And you get those black bars above and below the video on the screen so you can see the entire of the widescreen in the 4:3 tv?

Well how do you creat this effect on idvd? I tried using the widesscreen function and all it did when I watched the resulting dvd on my tv is to have the video at the full size of the tv and have part of the dvd (both sides) not visible (chopped off).

Am I doing something wrong? Or do I have to just encode the video in 4:3 only mode? That's ok cause I already have it in widescreen from the first time I tried this. I'd just like to know for the future is this what I am asking possible.
QUOTE Thanks
