Letterbox Issue

I'm a new user who is having trouble getting 16:9 full screen (not letterboxed) output on DVDs burned with Architect.

The source video was shot on a Sony HDR FX 1000 in HD, downcoverted to DV during capture in Vegas 9.0. Properties settings were MainConcept MPEG-2, NTSC widescreen 16:9. Properties in Architect match those of Vegas. The DVDs burned with these settings show up as letterboxed 16:9. By changing the setting to 16:9 in the "Preview" tab in "Preferences" I'm able to get a full screen view of the project but upon burning, the output is always letterboxed.

Sony tech support has been unable to resolve the problem. Has anyone had a similar experience, and what is the solution?

Geof, thanks for taking the time to reply but I'm not sure what you mean by "wrong letterbox". Can you please elaborate?

Many thanks...
