Avi on tv

posted in File Types

I have a strange problem. Whenever I have a movie in avi format and convert it to dvd, I have one of two results:

*The movie plays fine on the tv as it should
*The movie plays widescreen but acts as if it doesnt know its an HDTV and I have the black boxes on either side of the video

Any suggestions? I’ve checked the aspect ratios/sizes and it seems irrelevant; in fact some of the ones that play small have better resolutions.

I’ve used Winavi to convert, sometimes some cutting with DVD Shrink and roxio to burn. reply

burn your avi files to dvd to play on your tv reply


I think the most problem is you did not choose the ratio option. There are two stands for tv, that are 16:9 and 4:3, please choose the correct one. reply
