Jessica LawheedDVDSP DVDs only cropped or squished in certain players

Hello All,

I have been searching the forums for this particular problem, but everyone else seems to have goofed on the HD thing or have title safe issues etc...

I am burning DVDs that work fine on some players and weird on others. I've learned that HDMI connected players will play better than those connected via component cables, but if we're submitting to festivals, I'd like to know that the film will play well regardless of what they're playing it on.

My workflow went from FCP straight to compressor with DVD BEST 150 min parameters, then those two files into DVDSP. I have burned 3 DVD's so far. 2 16:9 pan-scan, SD with a simple menu, one with lossless checked and one with it unchecked. Both of these work fine on Xbox/PS3 (both of which are connected via HDMI), but when put in my DVD player which is connected via component cables are severely cropped. The TV I am watching this on is widescreen HD tv.

Here is my build:

The other I burned 16:9 Letterbox, same simple menu, lossless checked. Again, in HDMI connected player it's fantastic, in component, it's squished- the letter box (duh) puts letter boxing on my 16:9 movie playing on my 16:9 TV. This was a trial since the other two didn't work.

Here is my build for that:

Please help me to know what I need to do to get it to look right on my regular DVD player. If there is more specs you need, let me know what they are. Perhaps I'm just not searching the proper way to find the answer to this question, but I can't avoid not posting anymore.

Thanks,
Jessica
