Change capture setting in Onlocation

I've finally upgraded my pc so that I can capture using Onlocation without crashing.
But when I capture and import into Premiere Pro the size of the video is smaller than the normal captured video from the tape.  And when I stretch the Onlocation video, the video becomes out of shape.
Is there a setting within Onlocation that I can use to prevent this from happening or is it an import issue with PPro.

Could you please first check your importing settings
Importing OnLocation clips with the Adobe Premiere Pro Media Browser
Open the Media Browser, and navigate to the folder that contains the OnLocation project file.
Choose the correct format in the “View as” drop-down list.
The Media Browser displays thumbnails of the clips and associated metadata.

Maybe a video will help

I tried it in CS5 at home and I used the HD option.  When I got to the other location, it has CS4, It didn't give me the option for HD; therefore, I used 16:X and added the letterbox sytle to my  capture setting stlye.
Thanks for your help.  Now if you could direct me on editing with SoundBooth, that would be helpful...

Thankyou!
ah Soundbooth,I have tried it and found it quite complex.
Audacity free open source and my inbuilt audio tools with my video editors work quite well.

I like Lynda.com, this site is really amazing has tuturials for just about all the mainstream software not free though
http://www.lynda.com/Soundbooth-training-tutorials/309-0.html
 the place for free is Youtube.
Youtube has a dedicated channel for just about every mainstream software as well.
Even includes Lynda.com

Your welcome.
I thought using Soundbooth would've help me with the problem that me and a couple of my friends have when it comes down to editing "MultiCam".  PrePro only using one sound track, resulting in inconstant audio.  But your rite - for what it's worth, going through all the trouble of exporting, editing audio, attempting to sync multi-tracks of audio, and then importing back to PrePro, well lets just say its a bit much.  
I already a member Lynda.  I am using it to tech myself CSS.  But I'll try some of your stuff and see what happens.
Thanks again...

This shouldnt be too difficult
Had I known what you were tasked with, hindsight ;)
A mono signal to make stereo
you could adjust the pan during play, Then record it during this play.. Audacity is such a tool, it could record ( what you hear) of the PrePro sound track playing with a pan to the right to make like a lower stereo
Or drop the track below
Stereo tracks from mono<< btw you can do exactly this in Audacity

How to Pan in Soundbooth
http://smallbusiness.chron.com/pan-soundbooth-44810.html
for audacity to record this you need to enable the stereo mix
If you need help on this ask a new question here's some guides but you could google them..

I'm not quite following you.  But before we go any further, I will e-mail once I get a chance to set down and setup the sequence of events.  I say that because we've change the topic of this thread.  If admin doesn't break up our conversation, we should be fine.
To clear up a little bit of my illegible chain of thought, or lack there of, I want to be clear. Especially since you seem to have the knowledge that I am seeking.
Often when I do multi-track in PPro I have multiple tracks of audio (the tracks on the bottom of the timeline). If I export to Encore (or use Dynamic Link), it only uses the main (#1) audio track.  As a result, I have to cut and paste(or insert) every time I want to use audio from track other then #1.  As you can see, this would be after syncing the video. If' I doing a 3 hour timeline and you multiply that my 3 cams... - well you get the idea.  
As far as using stereo to mono, I will have to do some experimenting with that.  I just thought there was and easier way.  Maybe PPro CC might have option to edit the audio as well as the video and use the mixer like they have in Encore.
Hopefully, in the next few days I can work on this; additionally, I will contact you concerning my progress.

Note: I know I'm not the only person that has had this problem.  Feel a little awkward not having found a solution yet.

We can talk as long we need  JZeig it's your post and there are no rules on time limits.
If it helps your first problem no worries here.
well I'm sorry to say linking these tracks to Encore has shifted it again encore is out of my experience.
But a base understanding of multi tracks I might be able to help.
Are you saving your multitrack first export it as a completed audio project
what format are the multiple tracks all the same?
Is that where you have the original video clip? in Encore?
If Encore is not seeing the multi track it has to be in the saving format

often when I do multi-track in PPro I have multiple tracks of audio (the tracks on the bottom of the timeline). If I export to Encore (or use Dynamic Link), it only uses the main (#1) audio track.

Youtube video may help you as I cant show you
