I hope this is the right place to post this Recently, my wife decided that all of her old VHS tapes were taking up too much room and she wanted to burn them all to DVD and get rid of the tapes. So I bought a Sylvania VHS/DVD-R unit so that she could attach them to her 27" TV in the den and copy the tapes to her heart's content. So she is merrily converting tapes this weekend and I happen to notice that Two mules for Sister Sarah is coming up on TCM so I set the TiVo to record it for me. Later in the day she notices that this is on and suggests trying to record it to DVD on the burner. So she connects the cable directly to the Sylvania and burns the movie to DVD. She plays it back in the den on the 27" TV and it looks great So last night I ask her about the DVD and suggest we watch it on the 16x9 TV in the living room. So we load it up and I set the Phillips TV to Widescreen for the letterboxed version of the film and we play the DVD back. But - no matter what I set the TV to, its still 4:3 letterboxed...So I play back the copy that TiVO recorded and it works fine. A nice letterboxed presentation on the 16:9 set with no vertical lines on the edges with the set set to widescreen mode. Switch back to the DVD copy and its still 4:3 - and no matter WHAT screen setting I use on the 16:9 set, its always 4:3 off that DVD. Can anyone tell me why this is? TIA!
