    I am converting videos to play on a Philips DVP3560 DVD Player bottom 1/2" to 3/4" of the the video is cut off how do I fix this?? I am converting these videos to mpeg2 avi and vob 720x480 4:3 or 16:9 with Freemake playing the video on a 18 to 20 yr old 19" tv. What do I need to do so a smaller part of the video at the bottom is not cut off??

    Sounds like overscan issue. What happens if you play the converted and original videos on a computer using VLC?

    Definitely Overscan. Everything you've ever seen on that TV has lost part of the picture. Maybe sometime you'll get a digital TV and no longer have the problem.

    You could put a black border around the film but that loses resolution and is a bad idea, in my opinion. I hope you didn't burn subtitles too close to the bottom so they're cut off as well.

    Adjusting the vertical alignment on the TV might help too.
