Default TMPGenc problem not keeping aspect ratio

I have the latest version of TMPGens and it is not keeping the aspect ratio of the source.

I ripped it with smartripper and prepared it for TMPGenc with dvd2avi. I start the wizard in TMPGenc, chose SVCD NTSC, browse for the Video and audio source. In "expert setting for source" I keep "Non-Interlace", "Bottom field first (field B)" and change aspect ratio to "16:9 525 Line (NTSC)" because the original DVD is widescreen. Then in "Other Settings" under "Filter Setting", I unlock the aspect ratio only to change it to "16:9 display" because of the source that is widescreen. I don't start encoding immediately, under "Preview options" in the "Option" menu I change it to "Do not fix preview size" so I can see exactly how the resulting file will look like.

The problem is this. When I do this the resulting ratio is changed. It is stretched vertically. After doing a bunch of test I found out that by only unlocking the aspect ratio in the "Other settings" with out changing any other setting at all, it is stretched still vertically. I still see the black bars on top and bottom but they are very little.
If I don't unlock the aspect ratio (that keeps it to the default of 4:3) the black bars are there and much bigger, almost like the original but I find that it is still stretched a bit.

In the Advanced tab, what ever "Video arrange Method" I use, Full screen, Full screen(keep aspect ratio) or full screen(keep aspect ratio2) it does not make any difference.

Instead of fretting about how it looks on your PC's monitor, burn your SVCD on a R/W CD and play it back on your standalone DVD player (via television). You may be pleasantly surprised...
