Y is rendered WMV 4:3 for SD Widescreen?

Hi folks. I converted an m2t from the Fx1e to SD PAL Widescreen. Everything looks ok at 16:9 but when I render to wmv using the default option, it turns out square! Like 4:3. Looks weird. When I rendered to WMV HD-720P its fine. I understand since I'm working on SD, the 720P will not be much better compared to using the m2t. So how do I work around this to get a 16:9 with a standard wmv?

I once had this problem. Seems that in some render setups the "widescreen anamorphic" flag is not correctly set in the wmv file header. I didn't have time to deal with figuring it out, so I rendered to a DV-AVI file and did my wmv encode in Windows Media Encoder, the freeware from Microsoft.
