      Sky+ Bug?

      Discovered something interesting!

      If I set a programme to "Copy", the Sky+ box then letterboxes all widescreen channels.

      4:3 channels such as SS News are fine but S News and N24 etc all go letterboxed with about 2/3rd of a screen of picture and 1/6th of black bars each above and below the picture.

      I have to unplug to get it working properly.

      I have a v2 box with the smaller HD.

      Bug or box on the way out??

      Cheers,

      Henry

      I think the new software has introduced a general bug re letterboxing.

      When my box goes into auto standby for more than a day, then when I switch it back on its in LB not true WS. If you go into Services and picture settings (without touching or changinging anything) then it corrects itself, it;s the only way I have found to correct it wothout re-booting).

      I email Sky about this some time ago and they replied that it is a bug, which they are working on??
      Workaround being not to use the copy function, just playback the recordings you want to burn.
