    Tried to get as much info into the title

    Basically that's it. I'm using AVCHD to convert a 1080p MP4 clip to blu-ray format and the conversion initially works fine. If I play the blu-ray disk structure in VLC, it plays fine as well - black bars on the top and bottom and the correct aspect ratio.

    I then burn it to a BD-R using imgburn and when I put it in my blu-ray player and play it the picture is basically panned and scanned and looks horribly stretched. the black bars are gone !

    it's really starting to frustrate me and i've wasted 3 blank bluray discs already so any help would be most welcome, thankyou.

    I guess you know that multiavchd hasn't been updated for a long time now....so I would look for other blu-ray converters/authoring solutions.

    Try also play the blu-ray on your computer with powerdvd or tmt and see how it looks like. Not just vlc.

    i didn't know multiavchd hasn't been updated, no. the screen format on the BR player is "original" and the aspect ratio is set to "letter box"

    tv type is 16:9

    cinema conversion is "auto"

    (this is a sony model..)

    all of the other screen settings are set to auto

    Problem solved

    In the transcode option, there's a resize and uncrop dropbox. The uncrop dropbox was always 1920x1080 but the resize box was 1920x900 (no change). I changed that to 1920x800 instead of the one with (no change) and re-transcoded it and it worked!

    burnt the film to a BD-R and played it on my TV and it worked fine - aspect ratio was bang on

    AVCHDCoder will do it for you automatically no matter what the original was. Set and forget. Simple to use.
