Copies play back in letterbox format?

    Just copied AI-Artificial Intelligence and Blade 2 using DVD Shrink and
    Nero. The originals played back on TV full screen but the copies play back
    in letterbox format with gaps top and bottom. Picture and sound quality
    otherwise good. Copying main movie only, should I be copying more than that
    or am I doing something else wrong? I'm new to DVD burning having just
    bought one.

    Thanks for the reply, that explains it. Comparing originals and copies a
    bit closer see that with originals the TV can be switched between 16:9 and
    CINEMA modes, it defaulted to CINEMA unless set otherwise, whilst with the
    copies it can't. It's not a big issue since I am more than happy with the
    results of my first attempts at copying DVD's but out of curiosity I would
    like to know if and how I can retain this aspect ratio switching feature in
    copied DVD's. I know copying the whole DVD rather than just the main movie
    will probably do it but that will result in quality loss. Will experiment a
    bit to find the best trade-off between quality and content.
