I used ffmpeg to prepare an mpeg file, source has 16:9 aspect ratio,
into DVD format, then used dvdauthor to create a file structure as per a
dvdauthor -o DVD 1.mpg
dvdauthor -T -o DVD
then I burned the file structure to a DVD using K3B in video DVD mode.
The resulting disc plays in a standalone DVD player, but shows full
screen on the normal TV that its plugged into, just showing a 4:3 aspect
ratio, and missing the left and right hand sides..
In MythTV the DVD disc plays in 16:9 (with black bands above and below
on my PC monitor). I want it to play this way on a normal TV and DVD
player too, i.e. to play letterboxed like most commercial DVDs do on
that same equipment.
Can anyone suggest what I need to change?
