Vertical lines losses?

Hi,

I have noticed some vertical lines losses from the video I captured using the PAL XL1s.
Its like the image has been cropped off from the left and right.

Its pretty obvious when I play it back compared to a video from a vcd where it'll fills up the entire screen horrizontally where mine does not.
This is seen from the computer monitor though, is something wrong with my xl1s? or is the programme that i use to capture the video that is having the problem?

I have been reading posts from there actually. But the problem discussed is about the pixel loss at the bottom. Mine's not only at the bottom but at the 2 sides (left and right as well)

But when I convert the files to mpeg files, the loss in vertical lines becomes less noticeable .
I'll read the thread you point to again though.
Just wondering whether we are talking bout the same problem.
Thanks for replying Chris..
