Hmmm, but a 4:3 recording plays back with the same vertical height as
the 16:9, just with a black border all around. I thought this meant it
is really a 16:9 with black added left and right.

That would be great. I am only putting one show on the DVD at the
current time though.

Well actually, the first one I tried, starts in 16:9. So maybe it isn't
detecting it correctly for me.
Also, in the log I see this from dvdauthor
WARN: attempt to update aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9; skipping
