Help encoding hdv footage in Cleaner XL 1.5 for web delivery!

I need help encoding hdv footage in Cleaner XL1.5 for web delivery! I am a fairly experienced editor who upgraded to hdv recently, using Premiere Pro 1.5.1 and Aspect HD to edit my hdv footage filmed with a Sony FX-1 1080i camera. This footage will only be used online, so I normally deinterlace as I export an edited movie from Premiere Pro and end up with a big CF AVI file ready to encode into web ready formats for the end users. Now I import that into Cleaner XL 1.5 ( just like I used to import the edited DV AVI of standard def movies) with the intention of batch encoding the movie into three different formats as dictated by my customer- WMV, Real and Quicktime at both full frame size and half frame size (Six different outputs in total).

Now the wmv files turn out fine using the NTSC Progressive 16 x 9 template- (progressive because remember I already deinterlaced the footage, and of course these movies are 16x9 frame size) . But I can't get Cleaner XL to encode to Quicktime at all (it gives me an error #223 I believe ) and the Real files come out distorted as if they were in 4x3 aspect ratio. I believe that the 1.33 pixel aspect ratio in the CF AVI file is screwing up the encodes to Real and Qucktime in Cleanner XL 1.5. I was able to mess with the settings in Real to trick the program and get the final output to look okay as if it is widescreen, but the Quicktime files I can do nothing with to make Cleaner XL work.

I have hundreds of dollars invested in Cleaner XL which I liked up to this point so I do not really want to try a different batch encoder, nor do I want to switch to Mac, nor do I want to output from within Premiere half a dozen times separately nor any other solutions that require me to just give up and spend a lot of money doing this a completely different workflow. Can anyone help?
