Shooting 1280x720p -> SD-DVD (PAL)

So, we're finally in the HD ocean, shooting 720/50P with our HPX500.
Codec is DVCProHD. The sequence setting is 960x720-50P.

The ref movie is 1248x702 - how come??

SD DVD is no more than 720x576. We're using BitVice, and I'm told they have a great downscaler (as does Purifier from the same company).

But what about the frame rate?? Will the .m2v be 720x576@50P ? Is this compliant with the DVD standard?

Now - you won't believe this...

It looks like QuickTime player crops off my video...???

Found a post in a forum that suggested opening the movie in QT 7. And sure, now the movie properties are 1280x720...

Can I trust QT7 that my movie really is 1280x720@50P ? Or is there any other Mac software that can display stream info?

[Niklas Wikman] "is there any other Mac software that can display stream info?"

There is a program I use (on Mac) called VideoSpec. It's not perfect (e.g. it can't always determine field order) but I use it with Compressor to develop a consensus on the specs of a given piece of video.
