I have a Panasonic DMR-E85HS DVD/Hard Disk recorder (Tivo-like device) that I am very happy with. There is, of course, one small problem.

I recorded a High Definition Wide Screen (16x9) video on the E85H's hard disk. It plays in perfect 16x9 format when I play it back. It plays in 16x9 format when I burn it to a DVD and play it from the E85H.

When I finalize the DVD-R in the E85H, and play the disk in another player, it shows as a 4x3 image. It is the actual 16x9 image, but it has been squeezed horizontally to fit the 4x3 image. It has two vertical bars on either side on the 4x3 image.

What am I doing wrong?

My other DVD player is a Momitsu. It plays all other DVDs in their correct format. Why wouldn't it play a DVD from the Panasonic TIVO correctly?
