    Why am I getting black bars on the sides of my widescreen assets?


      I am importing video, shot and edited 1920x1080p23.976, into Encore.  The goal is to burn a DVD from this asset.  I've tried exporting the project (from Premiere CS5.5) in every format on the list, and no matter what when I import it into Encore it show up in the monitor with narrow black bars on the sides.  The assets are correctly being formatted for 16:9 (non-square pixels), but the video is just not filling the screen.  This seems like it should be a simple thing, why can't I get this?
