I'm recording gameplay of my Wii with the Hauppauge HD PVR with ArcSoft Capture Module but the recording shows black bars on the sides, and I don't want it to. I'm thinking it's the input resolution (set to 720x480) but I can't change it. When I record on my PS3 I never have black bars.

Anyone here know how to fix this? Or am I forever stuck with those black bars on the sides?

Here's a pic of what I mean:

What inputs are you using on the HD-PVR - component? Don't forget that the Wii does not output HD - I think the best it can do is 480p so that may be why you are getting the bars.

You could try using an s-video connection. The quality will be slightly lower however.

You may also try setting your Wii to "widescreen" mode in the settings.

I couldn't see the attached image (blocked at my office) but I know if I connect my Wii to my widescreen TV and forget to set the setting to widescreen, I get a 4:3 image with black bars on either side.
