there appears to be two options:
use Dan Isaacs's method. The process is explained by looking at the following post: http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b5b2fb/45
or encode the timeline with encoder in progressive mode and make sure you select the same aspect ratio as the project.
Are you saying buying an upconverting SD or Blu-Ray player is the best way because the units upconvert standard DVD video resolution to HDTV-compliant 720p, 1080i or 1080p?
I'm saying buy a Blu-ray player already and keep it High Def throughout. No down conversion, no up conversion. Just HDTV all the way, baby.
I mean, you spend a few grand on an HD camera, another few grand on an HDTV, it makes no sense not to spend a couple hundred on a Blu-ray player. Trying to make DVDs in this case is just silly, especially now that the format war has ended and there is only one HD disk format.
As long as everybody to whom you give or sell the disks has a bluRay player, you're probably right. The idea of paying probably $15 for a Bluray injet printable disk in volume is what I dislike. About 30 of those and you have the cost of a player.
Why not burn your BluRay project to a regular DVD, or film in widescreen SD.

Given that Shaun specifically asked about playback on an HDTV, something a business making copies for multiple clients probably wouldn't know, I assumed in this case the final product was for personal use, not for wide distribution. In which case, just get the Blu-ray and be done with it.
Change your encoding to CBR and give it the highest bitrate you can. Or if you would rather use VBR raise the minimum to something a lot higher than the default. If it's 1.5Mbs for example, change it to something like 5Mbs.
