    Look in the manual - usuall in the menu settings? Also, some Virgin channels do this I believe if he has TV from them (I also used to get it on Sky) :confused:

    It's not mentioned in the manual and aspect ratio switching is nothing to do with the cable/Sky box.

    My 7 year old widescreen CRT has an option to turn off automatic aspect ratio switching so surely this HD Wharfedale has the option somewhere too?

    Have you tried the Wharfedale website for that model? Looked at the troubleshooting section in the manual? Searched through all settings menus?

    The only thing this TV has to do with Wharfedale is the name.

    I believe its just an Alba TV with "Wharfedale" stuck on the front.

    There's no information about TV's on their website and the manual mentions nothing about automatic aspect ratio switching.

    Sounds like it is rather basic and not very good, so perhaps you are stuck with it - I assume you can manually adjust the screen ratio from 4:3 to 16:9

    Is the set new / within warranty? If so, take it back and say it is bust...
