Vegas to DVD Architect, output in 4.3

Ok,
I have filmed in 4.3 using a Sony PD170, captured in 4.3,edited in 4.3 and rendered out to mpeg2 in 4.3.
I need to make a DVD in 4.3 in DVD Architect. I have made my Vob files, burnt to disk, but for some reason my dvd player and other dvd players are stretching this out as 16.9?

I have forgot how to do this as i shoot in 16.9 and all my DVD's are widescreen.
Can someone push me in the right direction? i think i need to tell DVD Architect to flag this as a 4.3 disk but have a total blank as how to do it.

Regards
Simon

Check your Properties screen in DVDA.
Odds are that you have it set to Widescreen as the default.

Thanks Mike,
Everytime i post a question i find the problem.
DVD is fine and in the correct aspect, 4.3 but the problem lies in that both tv's i have tried are on the widescreen setting and you have to set the tv menu to 4.3 not leave it on 16.9, this has fixed the stretching.
I wonder how many poeple look at the dvd aspect ratio and change it on the tv?

Cheers
Simon

Simon, my guess is a lot.
Until the "world" standardizes on 16:9 as a format (yeah, right!!), we'll continue to run into issues like this.
Kinda like the stretched look that I see everywhere because the viewer doesn't like the black bars on the side of their fancy new HDTV :-(
