Thanks for the response.
I'm afraid there's no adjustments available as you suggest.
I have noticed this viewable area issue on other TV's I've tried as well.
Strange cos the problem doesn't exist with commercial DVD's only the ones I've created using iMovie.

Good point, Matt.
However, the TV I'm currently using is new (about 2 months old) and I cannot beleive that all TV's behave in this manner. The same DVD viewed on other widescreen TV's present the same degree of slight cut off anyway.
I've tried different DVD players too.. same thing.
Also tried palying about with the TV aspect ratios.
Anyway, the image area viewed on TV's is larger than when viewed on my Macs.
I guess I'll have to live with this one.

You could play around with image size with QuickTime Pro. You'd place a slighting smaller version of your video over a normal size black background.
But that could get a bit tedious and not be worth the effort.
QuickTime Pro costs a few bucks but it a useful tool to have arouind.

Mmmm... that does sound tedious, Matt.
I have got QT Pro.
I guess I'm surprised that this oddity is unique my movies and wondered if anyone else out there had a similar experience?
Many thanks for your time Matt.
