Windows 7: Sony Vegas Video 7 aspect ratio help

Sony Vegas Video 7 aspect ratio help

It seems even if I specify a 16:9 resolution to render in, I am seeing borders.

I hit Render As.. then Custom. But there is.. a drop down box next to Aspect Ratio ? With a lot of numbers/decimals and such that I cannot understand at the moment.. which do I want ?

I'm using .mpg format because my Playstation 2 is kind of limited.. I'm not sure if I should try the other .mpg format ? I don't wish to add borders no more

I will render each project into AVI format. I will put together each AVI file into one Vegas project and render that one project into Mainconcept MPEG-2 format so I can create a DVD in DVDA.

I hope it helps.
