[Michael Gissing] "Kevin, 720 x 576 is 4:3SD PAL. I know the numbers aren't perfect but a device designed to take this will display as 4:3. "
720x576 is 4x3 or 16x9, depending of the pixels aspect (4x3 or PAL Anamorphic).

[Kevin Camin] "That's interesting. Sorry I unfortunately don't do much PAL work."
PAL or NTSC, 4x3 or 16x9, is the same when we are displaying on a computer screen (Squared Pixels).
To display the picture properly we have to keep the 4x3 or 16x9 relation in each case.

[Kevin Brower] "Thanks guys It worked by creating a 576 timeline and dropping in 1080 footage. It automatically put on the letterbox bars. I then put it in streamclip and converted it to Mpeg 4 so I could play on my picture frame."
Thats wrong.
Unless your time line has SQUARED PIXELS.
If the pixels are not Squared, QT will keep displaying the picture wrong.
And do you really want letterbox?
Do things well.
Your picture is 16x9, so keep that relation:
1920 x 1080
1280 x 720
1024 x 576
800 x 450
720 x 405
640 x 360
560 x 315
480 x 270
16 x 9
All those sizes will make computers display the picture properly 16x9 whatever the movie is HD, or SD, PAL or NTSC.
When dealing with PAL SD 16x9 (720x576 Anamorphic) the best option is 1024 x 576.
