DVD recorder is Panasonic DMR-EZ47V. Commercially available films on DVDs work correctly on 4:3 or 16:9 TVs. If I make a recording to DVD with the panasonic settings on 4:3 then for widescreen material, black bars are permanently saved onto the recording top and bottom of the screen. This dislpays correctly on 4:3 TVs, but not on 16:9 TVs where the extra black bars are not needed. The picture is distorted, being very wide and not tall enough. If I make a recording to DVD with the panasonic settings on 16:9 then widescreen material displays correctly on widescreen TVs. On 4:3 TVs the picture completely fills the screen and is distorted. People very tall and thin as the widescreen picture is squashed into a 4:3 screen. I have tried +RW and -RW. Do I need to make two copies of everything, one for 4:3 and one for 16:9 TVs.
