Default Toshiba HD-A3 & homegrown dvds

Although my A-3 seems to do a great job with HD-DVDs, with some commercial standard dvds and (so far) all my home burned dvds, the video will not fill the screen of my 16:9 HDTV. Instead it shows a wide-screen but pillar / letter boxed picture.

I burn my dvds on a Panasonic E-85 from HD channels on a Dish Network 622 HD receiver via S-Video. These dvds look great (as good as regular commercial dvds) and anamorphically fill my tv fine when played from either the recorder or a regular dvd player, so I don't understand what the problem is on the A-3. Has anyone else had this problem?

As yet I have not done a firmware upgrade on the A-3. Does anyone know what HD-A3-1100U.ISO does?

Try playing in the menu of your TV. I would go through and find anything about aspect ratio and change it around to see if you can get it to fill the screen.

The tv has about half a dozen options for aspect ratio changes that can be done with the arrow keys on the remote - they're just not available over a digital (DVI) connection.
