720 X 480 should fill a standard def screen. When you play the piece on your pc does it still have the bars as well? if yes, then it was probably rendered with the bars intact. If no then you may want to check your display to see if it has a setting that will stretch it to fill the screen. You should only need to do this if you have a HD (widescreen) display.
I rendered my Fox intro at 720 X 480.
When I play it on my HT screen, it fills the whole screen which is 7' wide. It does this because, on my projector I have it set to "normal" which will fill my entire screen. If I would set it to "native" it would only display it at the actual resolution leaving the black bars on the sides.
Hope this explains it a little.
In a nut shell, 720 X 480 will fill a standard screen. With HD, you will need to do something to make it fill your screen.
Otherwise, re-render at the higher resolution...
