When i have tried to burn dvd's in iDVD it comes out unable to show the full 16:9 image on my TV. It cuts off either end of the image and displays it in 4:3. How do I solve this problem?

When you are creating the iDVD project are you selecting 16:9 (vs. 4:3)? It's a button selector at the bottom of the create project window that opens when you create a new project. Also, some of the older themes will default to 4:3 aspect ratio, so be sure to make sure they aren't "forcing" the media to 4:3.

Also, both your DVD player and your monitor can have display settings that crop 16x9 to 4x3, so check those.
