Converted Video Doesn't use entire TV Screen

Question

I'm new here so I apologize if this question has been asked here already. I have a DVD that I am trying to convert using popcorn 4. When I convert it using the Apple TV setting the video only uses a some space in the middle of my TV and not the entire screen. How can I change the settings to get the video to display the whole screen. I have a wide screen TV and all the apple videos I have rented work without a problem. If anybody has a suggestion I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Cheers,

 

RB

Ok, tried the default best setting and indeed it does take up the full TV screen space. However, the quality of the video is not good at all. I tried converting the same video with custom settings that matched the "Best" setting except I bumped up the bit rate and the problem I originally posted about still happens. It doesn't make any sense. I'm trying to convert a animated movie if that makes any difference.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers.

You'll need to do some experimenting. Note that there is a Preview button in the window where you choose your AppleTV setting. In the custom settings window note that the default resolution is no longer 720x480. Choose custom within the resolution to enter 720x480. Also click the Video Options button and choose multi-pass encoding. Animation is difficult to maintain quality with compressed video formats.
