Letterbox composite output from PDW700

I have some HD material that I want to burn on a DVD. How do I output letterboxed composite? "Squeeze" and "Crop" do what they suggest but I don't find a "letterbox" menu choice.

On Sony's product detail page for the 700 http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/product-PDW700/ it says:

Aspect Ratio Control The following conversion is possible in recording mode: Upconversion from SD to HD In the downconversion process from HD to SD, Squeeze / Edge Crop / Letter Box are available. In the upconversion process from SD to HD Squeeze / Edge Crop / Letter Box are available

Thanks!

Hi David,

Letterbox support was added in a software update and has to be enabled in a separate menu. Go to Menu O-29 (the "Select Function" menu) and under "letterbox" select "enable." After you do this it will be added to the list of output choices in the Output 2--> Down Conv menu.

Note that this is not available in 24p, which can only be output in Squeeze or Crop...

Best,

Ian
