Does anyone know what settings to use in compressor 3 to get 720p 24pn video to display widescreen on a 16:9 TV but Letterbox on a 4:3 TV. I've tried several settings and either get 4:3 anamorphic squeeze or 4:3 side crop which cuts off my graphics.
Generally speaking a 4:3 TV will add the letterboxing for you if it's capable of dealing with the signal (some will do this automatically, some will need switching soem setups will require that the DVD player will be set to output suitable for 4:3 sets); very old TVs won't be able to do this.
Just use a 16:9 setting in compressor.

Thanks for the info. When I use the 16:9 setting in compressor and then playback the file from the media server that our files run from on air. The image displays squeezed (anamorphic). Could this be a decoding problem from the media server?
