DVD Zoomed-in issue. Overscan?

Hi all,
I have spent some time attempting to create high quality DVDs from HD FLV files using AME and Encore. But although I have followed every help guide, read the support literature and used logical sense, approx 10 pixels are missing vertically and approx 20 horizontally when I play it on a DVD player(I have tried 2 players/TVs with same result)(like a slightly zoomed-in effect).
In Encore and WMP, it plays perfectly fine.

This is the transcoded file:

More info:
The first DVD player(Panasonic) is quite versitile with regards to settings. I use the component(R/G/B) output(576p) and the HDTV(Samsung) recognises it as 720 x 576p. I have tried different aspect ratio settings on both TVs and DVD players and the best/closest settings are:
DVD Players: 16:9 (1.0x zoom)
TVs: 16:9

NOTES:
- Curiously, I have two video-loop-buttons "(%)" in the Main Menu, and in those, the same slightly zoomed-in effect occurs on the video, even while previewing in Encore, but I think that is because I used a 1280x720 thumbnail of the original HD video. Just thought I'd mention that.
- I used "Scale to Fill" during rendering, because of black lines on the sides.
- This issue is very recognisable due to the logo in the top left of the screen being 1/3rd missing.
- I am in the UK(i.e. PAL). But I wonder if a NTSC render would resolve this? Is this the kind of effect using wrong TV standards would cause?


Thanks for any help,
Marc
