I would try using a compression program. If you’re using FCP, then use Compressor.
Bring your HD video into the compression program and export it as DVCPro50 PAL (as opposed to regular ol’ DV PAL). DVCPro50 is twice the data rate of regular DV – DVCPro50 is 50Mbps and DV is only 25Mbps, so DVCPro50 will give better results.
Also, try setting up the export to be anamorphic instead of 4:3 letterbox.
