Okay, to start off with I was one of those people who couldn't figure out why discs with source material of 16:9 burned at 16:9 was showing up on regular TVs as full screen. I reburned the same source at 4:3 and got the same result. The ProCare tutor at the Apple Store told me it would be letterboxed on a 4:3 TV (I have a widescreen set but friends who will be borrowing it do not).
Finally with the help of this thread ...
http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=430920&tstart=30
... I was got it figured out and set the dvd player I was testing it on to 4:3 Letterbox. All is fine.
Now this leads me to my question (finally). There seems to be no difference between the discs I burned at 4:3 and 16:9. Is there? Am I missing something? If I am making discs of 16:9 source material that will be played a little on 16:9 TV but probably mostly 4:3 TVs what aspect ratio should I be burning at??
Thanx all

If anything, I would expect the TVs to appear
different when playing either aspect ratio.
But they don't. That is why I am asking if there is a difference I am missing.
Originally I burned at 16:9 ratio because the Procare tutor at the Apple Store said it would appear letterboxed on a 4:3 TV. Looked okay on my 16:9 but on the 4:3 it was full screen with the sides clipped.
I figured I had messed up. So I reburned it at 4:3 ratio. It looked just the same as the 16:9 on my 16:9 TV. It also looked just the same on the 4:3 TV set as the previous 16:9 burn did.
At this point I was really lost. Thankfully I found the thread I linked up top in my first post that said that the dvd player of the 4:3 TV had to be set on letterbox. Man was I relieved.
I reset the dvd player at work connected to the 4:3 TV. Presto - it worked. They were in letterbox. But in the brief amount of time I watched the two different burns, they looked the same.
Both TVs (the widescreen and reg) did not appear different when play either aspect ratio. That is why I was wondering if I was missing something.
Apparently not.
I will go ahead and take the original advice and just burn at whatever aspect ratio my original source material is.
