I have some Mini DV camcorder tapes that I captured and edited using Vegas Movie Sudio Platinum 9. I would like to encode them for viewing on my 46 inch TV 1080i using a WDTV Live Media Player with a hard drive connected, no need to make a DVD.

What format and settings would give me the best quality in Vegas?

These tapes were made in the 4:3 format. These will be viewed on a 16:9 TV, should I encode them in 4:3 or 16:9?
