Video Aspect Ratio Problem

I'm having problems with the aspect ratio of dvd's I've made in standalone dvd plavers. I've transcoded some widescreen .avi's I have to .mpg's with mencoder retaining their scale and aspect ratio and such. Then I create my dvd with qdvdauthor no problem.The dvd's play fine in all their letterbox glory in Xine and Mplayer. When I play the dvd's in a standalone dvd player they display at 4:3. Meaning that the ends get cut off, and all I get is the middle bit without the benifit of pan and scan. what do I have to do to get my videos to letterbox in my standalone player?

Au contraire, please do give us the details -- it might save someone else the same pain.
