Help with rendering issue please

Hi there. We are using Vegas Pro 8 and a combination of both SD and HD footage that we are editing.

All editing is done viewing on a LCD monitor and then when rendered down to PAL DVD the issue becomes visible.

On the PC screen everything looks great, once rendered however the SD footage is great, but the HD footage seems to suffer far more. It is more noticeable in footage that is fairly bright. This footage was taken in the Australian outback so the light can be quite harsh at times. In certain pieces of footage when rendered and played back on a standard CRT TV screen the picture seem to shimmer, more so in the brighter shots. This is not evident at all on the LCD monitor when editing. It is also not evident on either monitor from the SD video.

I am going to take the DVD to a store tomorrow and have them play it for me on a HD LCD / Plasma screen to see if it does the same thing. Maybe out old CRT TV is on the blink, maybe its something else.

If anyone has any suggestions / ideas I would be most appreciative to hear them. As I stated the issue only seems to be with the HD footage. It is being rendered to mpeg2 using primarily the settings that I have read through other posts on this forum.

Thanks for reading and hopefully someone has seem this before, or its just our old TV that doesnt want to play.
