I recorded a program from DirectTV.  The program is wide screen but when I capture it using the Roxio video capture USB and the yellow, red and white RCA jacks it captures in standard (4:3).  I'm running Windows 8 and Roxio Creator NXT Pro.  Is the problem the capture USB?  The RCA jacks? Or NXT Pro?


Thanks for the help.

The video capture device is for low definition only so it is like VHS tapes which were 4 by 3 - long before high definition and 16 by 9.


Talk to DirectTV about putting the video on your computer.  It should already be digital so you do not need an analog to digital converter.  The USB device is an analog to digital recorder.
