Have you tried disposing of the plist for iDvd yet? It’s located in your Home folder (the one that looks like a house) > Library > Preferences >

Make sure to quit iDvd prior to disposing of the plist. This procedure will not harm your mac nor the app. Lastly I’d like you to Restart your mac and try iDvd one more time. Post back if you need further help.

Does your iDVD 7.0 Burned DVD have interlacing, pixelation, or image quality issues?

It could be due to the upscaling that it is doing when being asked to display a higher than native resolution.  For a brief explanation you can read this Apple Knowledge base article.
