What is HD DVD?
I am familiar with DVD, which is SD and I am familiar with BRD, which is HD.
Your export from TM700 will be limited because it uses a non-supported format, not even Panasonics latest BRD players support that format. Your only choices are to convert/encode to BRD or DVD acceptable formats, like 1080i for BRD or 480 for DVD (NTSC).
Thanks for your quick reply. Because I'm so new at this, I'm apt to get all all kinds of terminolgy scrambled. I thought HD DVD meant you did not get the letterbox and SD meant you get a top/bottom/left/right box. If I encode to widescreen (720x480) on a DVD and I'm trying to get the best quality should I ever get that letterbox surrounding? If not I'm doing something else wrong.

Letterbox or pillarbox surroundings are caused by a mismatch between the DVD format and the TV you play it back on. Widescreen DVD will play perfectly on a widescreen TV.
