DVD being played too big?
I'm not really sure if this is an appropriate question for these, but I'll give it a shot.
I'm trying to burn a DVD video. It burns just fine, but when I pop it in my DVD player the picture is too big, height-wise, for my TV. The bottom and top are getting cut off. I've tried every possible video setting on my DVD player, but nothing fixes it.
Can anyone give me a hand?

The software you are using is burning the disks at too low a resolution for tv playback. The
cutoffs of the top and bottom are the end result. Look for any type of NTSC or PAL settings in the options menu of the software you are using to burn disks. That has a direct bearing
on what you see. Also refer to the software's help files if not the online support. The screen
size seen is primarily controled by how the software writes to disk.

This sounds like it's due to "overscan".
CRT displays meant for TV viewing will typically be calibrated so that about 10% of the picture will extend beyond the visible area of the CRT. This is to prevent black areas around the edges of the CRT, which consumers will typically find disturbing when watching TV/movies.
With computer video, important information is often placed in the periphery of the picture (e.g. the start button at the bottom, scroll bars on the right side, etc). CRT's meant for computer use are typically calibrated to slightly underscan so you see the entire picture. When watching TV/movies on a computer, you will also see the entire picture.
Are you creating your own videos? Generally you want to keep any important information (like text) away from the edges of the screen so they don't get cut off when viewed on a TV.
