  • Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005


Consider the following scenario:

  • You record a TV program on a Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005-based computer.
  • The TV program is broadcast by a Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial (DVB-T) television station.
  • The TV program broadcast uses a widescreen (16 x 9) display width.
  • In Media Center, you select Create CD/DVD to burn the TV program to a DVD. You select Video DVD as the disk format.

In this scenario, when you play the recorded DVB-T TV program from the DVD in Media Center, the video is distorted. For example, the video appears to be squashed. Black bars appear on either side of the screen.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
