Combining 4:3/30p with 16:9/24p

I have clips shot in 16:9/24p and 4:3/30p; I like to make output to 16:9/24p in the final.
I set up new template with 24p widescreen, put the 4:3 clips on the time line, use pan/crop tool to set to 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.
In the preview window, the images look just like of those of 16:9 original, but when i render to mpeg2 widescreen, the images are stretched vertically, that is people look much thinner.
So please advise how to fix the problem, also, what setting should I use to get the best out of the 4:3 clips (some loss are acceptable)



Problem figured: the setting of the player and the monitor result in the stretch. Thanks

FYI, a 30p to 24p conversion is rarely very good. There just aren't enough motion samples in 30p to make a clean conversion.
