Hi, this is a great start and I see where I need to make the change, the only problem is that the disk image that gets saved out of iDVD is a locked UDF disk image. How do I lock it while maintaining the ability to be able to burn this as a readable disc for my DVD player? I do have Toast if need be.
So I'm part of the way there…

I think I figured it out.
- Download myDVDedit from http://www.mydvdedit.com/index.php?pg=downloads
- From iDVD save the VIDEO_TS folder (or copy it from your disc/disk image) to your computer.
- Open the VIDEO_TS folder in myDVDedit
- Use myDVDedit and change all of the VTS files to use an 16:9 auto Letterbox aspect ratio in the IFO section
- Save VIDEO_TS from myDVDedit
- Load up Toast and burn a new DVD from your VIDEO_TS folder.
I'll test this at home and let you know if it worked on my DVD player.

Well I can see the left and rights of the image now… but the problem is my Panasonic DVD player is adding the letterbox to my Samsung 16:9 TV. So now everything and everyone is too short. Changing the aspect ratio on my TV (for both versions of my DVD don't work either). I guess I have another coaster?
So it looks like for at least my combination, 16:9 auto Letterbox isn't the right setting either.
Maybe just 16:9?

At this point I believe it's your DVD player. I have never encountered this problem. Instinctively I would say that your DVD Player is not accepting your TV as 16:9.
Are you sure that you set the IFOs for ALL the parts to 16:9 letterbox? Does it happen with both the menu and main video?
Try to force 16:9 (without letterboxing) in myDVDedit. Maybe that will tell us what it is your DVD player does.
