    Hi,Sorry for posting another question.When I play back a recording,it is displayed in 4:3,not 16:9.Original DVD's are displayed in 16:9.Any ideas please.
    Cheers:)

    I don't connect via HDMI on my EX77 but have you tried altering the "Aspect for 4:3 Video" in the HDMI settings, to see if this makes a difference ? The manual seems to imply this should be set to 16:9 . ( Functions - To Others - Setup - Connection).

    hi, welcome to the forums. i have the ez27 and connected with hdmi cable
    supplied with the unit.for 16:9 set the hdmi output to 576p and you will have
    everything in widescreen. the automatic and 720p/1080p will show 4:3 on
    some programs particually annoying when recording from the epg.
    kind regards trevor.

    Hello Adrian F and trevor g :hiya:

    Followed the advice you both gave,with the following results.

    Adrain F,I set the screen size to 16:9 originally,changed it to 4:3 as you suggested.All recorded programs were shown full screen.But how does this effect programs broadcast in widescreen?.

    trevor g,Changed the output to 576p,with the original screen size of 16:9.The program was full screen.

    This creates a dilemma,both ways solve the problem,but which is the best solution?.

    Thank you both for your kind help,it is appreciated.Cheers,Mike:thumbsup:

    hello again, 576p solved the problem for me.upscaling freeview to720/1080
    will give no benefit over 576.changing the resoluction upwards whether set
    to 16:9 or 4:3 will always result in the black bar on a lot of chanels when
    using hdmi. at 576p the picture is lovely and every chanel in widescreen.
    it works for me. regards trevor
