I don't know how to do it:
I have a 4:3 TV set.
I encoding DVD as anamorphic so if someday I buy a 16:9 tv set it will be better for me.
I cant see these movies with a correct AR, doesn't matter how I set my SAP.
Many of them have a world turning around in presentation and I can't see it as a perfect sphere.
I don't know how deal with this issue.
Please help me.

1. Set the 16:9 flag while encoding
2. Set in the DVD Author Appl. 16:9 (letterbox/PanScan) as input Stream AR!!! (many people forget that.

1 - I did it.
2 - I use DVDLab and don't remember that setting. I'll check it later.

Thanks.

DVDLab detects that automatically !

1/ Read one of the vob files with VLC. Tell me if the picture is 4:3 or 16:9.
2/ Read the DVD with PowerDVD. Same question.
3/ Tell me the settings you use in your standalone and is there a difference when you change it on a commercial DVD ?

Just play the video (the vob file for VLC and the complete DVD for power DVD) and look if the picture is displayed as a square (4:3) or a a rectangle (16:9). Both programs detect the 16:9 flag and resize the window automatically. This is to control if your DVD is authored correctly.

Note: I edited your toppic

It seems that you must to select it:



Both programs show my movie as a square, but it is a full screen movie, then I think it is normal, isn't it.
I think my player dont do any change when I change settings as DVDLab was configured to letterbox and not "automatic - set by player"
