OK, I tried this program last night, but accidently checked the widescreen box and that was a mistake as the freakin' thing is now streched out.

This program converts and burns to DVD-R all in one shot (with a few processes of course though). The mpg file's aspect when viewed in Winamp shows as 352x240, so I'm guessing when I burn it again I need to pick an aspect ratio closest to that for my 32" TV (regular screen, HDTV). I only have two more chances on the trial version of this program. Any suggestions before I try it again tonight? Thanks.
EDIT: I used the trial version of Apollo MPEG To DVD Burner and it worked! It gives you 3 times to try it out, then you have to pay. I screwed up the first one, but the second worked.
Um, I just looked and I actually have WinDVD Creator within my copy of WinDVD I got free with something a while back. Oh well, I'll try it for my fourth mpg to DVD-R whenever that will be.
