Sorry yes I want to follow DVD restrictions, but I'm just curious how to handle things like widescreen DVD's?  So if my source is 16:9 when using the DVD target it will get changed and will not look right.  Maybe the better way to say it is how to preserve aspect ratio when converting to DVD target?

Thanks again for your help,
