Just purchased Toast 14. I am authoring DVDs, source video is 1280 x 720 .mp4 files. The display is correct when played back on my Mac or PC, but severely cropped when played back on a DVD player connected to a wide screen TV.
I am using automatic aspect ratio setting and burning DVD at best quality. I have tried all combinations of aspect ratio settings, automatic, standard and widescreen with the same result.
I have tried a few different DVD players, they all recognize and play the DVDs, but all crop the display. I have adjusted the display settings on the DVD players and the TV as mentioned on this forum but that does not solve the issue. All the DVD players I am using are at least 6 years old...could this be the issue? I read the post about changing the IFO settings but am not sure if this will solve my issue. I'm hoping there is an easier solution/answer to this issue.
I am authoring a set of 30 DVDs which will be distributed to a an audience with a variety of types of players, so I'm attempting to make the playback as user friendly as possible. I recently made the switch from iDVD where I did not experience this issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I see that this topic has been addressed in the past few months and am hoping there is a solution or clear answer.
