I wish to Rip some of my DVD's both homemade PAL 16:9 720 x 576 TV recorded DVD's via Panasonic HDD/DVD recorder and favourite bought DVD's.
I want to view them on my Western digital live having stored them on my network. I have tried decoding them with Handbrake but when played back via HDMI 1080p appear as 4:3. I guess the widescreen marker that the Panasonic sees (as when it upscales I get 16:9) is not being seen? Handbrake shows the format as 4:3 before ripping how can I get around this?
Thanks for your help

Thread: DVD - Western Digital Live
I am trying to make a .mp4 or mkv which will play as widescreen on my western digital live from DVDS I have recorded from TV (widescreen programs) Handbrake is not seeing the DVD recordings as 16:9 but 4:3 hence encodes them as such which means when played back via HDMI on the WD they appear as 4:3.
Playing back on the DVD recorder via HDMI shows the correct 16:9 ratio.
If I rip a shop purchased DVD Handbrake sees it as 16:9 and all is well.
