Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR
I have an Insignia dvd/vcr combo (not sure of the model - don't have instruction book handy) and am having trouble getting it to properly record onto a dvd from my Canon camcorder. The camcorder is set to record a wide screen image. When I plug the camcorder directly into my standard tv, the image comes out in letter box like I'd expect. My camcorder is set to display it's widescreen image in a letterbox format on standard tv's.
However, when I plug the camera into the Insignia dvd/vcr, the widescreen image is streched vertically so everything and everyone is too tall and skinny (my wife likes the effect, actually). The image recorded on the dvd looks the same - all streched out. The dvd/vcr is also set to display widesreen images in a letterbox format on my tv, and when playing rented or purchased dvd's, the do display in letterbox. It just seems to be a problem with how my widescreen camcorder image is translating through my dvd/vcr.
