M2t files show wrong aspect ratio in Bridge CS5

Time:November 30

We're using Bridge CS5 version 4.02.1 running on a Vista 64bit machine.  Our m2t files appear in Bridge as a 4:3 aspect ratio, when they should show 16:9.  They import correctly into PProCS5.  Our MOV files show correctly in both Bridge & PPro.  Why do the m2t files show incorrectly in Bridge?  According to Adobe Updates, all of our products are current.

For future referernce: in order to view anamorphic/non-square material correctly the Preview window of Compressor 3, you need to (counterintuitively) uncheck the Square pixels toggle (available in the center drop-down).
However, that said, if you're transcoding to ProRes422, make sure you've adjusted the Frame Size setting in the Geometry pane of the Inspector. By default, the ProRes422 preset converts material to 100% of source but, since ProRes is a square pixel codec (and HDV is not) that won't work for you. So, adjust the Frame Size value to 1902x1080 and your transcodes should be all good...
