After editing the video with iMovie 6 (as Widescreen DV) and exporting as an Apple TV file
That is not an option available in my version of iMovie 6. Can you elaborate on exactly which format you are choosing?

your picture shows a 4:3, letter-boxed video, in a 16:9 wide-screen project ...
if your telly allows it, just hit 'zoom' - boom! full-screen, wide-screen
I assume, the original material is no 'real' wide-screen = anamorph 4:3.
so, it came in as 4:3 plus bars top/bottom
a 4:3 in a 'wide-screen' project gets another pair of bars, to make it fit: l/r ...
=> the resulting, real 16:9 wide-screen versions looks like yours ........

When creating a new project, I follow these steps:
From iMovie 6.0.3 opening window: Create New Project->Video format-->DV Widescreen
Both projects were shot with the same camera.
After using iMovie to edit the video I export it in .DV format. Then I use Quicktime to create an Apple TV version.
I checked the Inspector info in Quicktime for each video. They are different but I'm not sure why:
CURRENT PROJECT: Format DV, 720x480 (640x480). Normal Size: 640x480
PREVIOUS PROJECT: Format DV, 720x480 (853x480). Normal Size: 853x480

I should also mention that the aspect ratio issue is within the iMovie project, not just when converting to Apple TV. I have the project for the CURRENT project (that is giving me trouble) but unfortunately not the PREVIOUS one (that is ok).
