    Anybody here know the best GUI settings for Handbrake/Tivo Premiere?

    I have several recordings that I am working with. I started by editing them with Video Redo to strip out some unwanted content. The output files are basic Mpeg files.

    I would like to use Handbrake to convert these mpeg files to .264 Mp4 files.

    After I convert them to .264, then I would like to transfer them back onto the Premiere and play them.

    I have tested this a bit. The h.264 output video files play smooth and good on the Tivo premiere. The sound also works just fine.

    However...... there seems to be some sort of issue with the frame size. That is, when I load the .264 files onto the Premiere, some unwanted black bars are showing up on the sides. What can I do to make the black bars go away? I want the video to fill up the whole screen.

    FYI...... the source files that I am working with are standard def. The original frame size is 528x480.

    Thanks!
