      losing 16:9

      Have just started getting on certain sky channels the screen size automatically changes. For instance, I could be watching sky one @ screen size of 16:9, and switch to channel five and size changes to 4:3, I can go back to sky one and screen goes back to 16:9. This always happens on channel 5 and lots of others. Also i could be watching a program @ 16:9, and when the adverts are on it goes to 4:3 and back to 16:9 when the program comes back on. Extremely annoying. Any help you could direct my way will be greatly received.

      You may have a TV that automatically sets the screen ratio:

      My Panasonic TV has this. Most of the time it is ok but occasionally it jumps between other sizes depending on the programme etc. If your TV has this function then it should let you set it permanently to 16:9.

      This is the way your TV is meant to work! The screen is keeping the correct aspect ratio for the material.

      If you really don't care about keeping the correct aspect ratio then theres probably a menu to turn off signalling. Alternatively you could switch to using the VCR scart output from the STB, which doesnt have the aspect ratio signalling on pin 8.
      There is no p in Thomson.
