I own a CRT TV. Currently, I can only DVD-record in 4:3. Any HDTV broadcasts I receive have the black bars on top and bottom (when connected via RCA cable).

What I'd like to be able to do is record HDTV broadcasts without the black bars on top/bottom (i.e. stretched out vertically) to a rewritable disc, then import the MPEG-2 video content into the computer, switch the aspect ratio to 16:9 and author the content as a DVD. I'm wondering if a product like this would help me out with such a task:

I have seen mixed reviews for this product, so I wonder if anybody here has tried it:

Thanks in advance for your assistance. smile.gif
