I have also read that there is some issues with Sagems boxes where by the picture gets squished is there any truth in this.
Is that somthing similar to when you watch DVD's and the set up is for wide screen. It will automaticaly go to the 16:9 setting.People try to watch a 4:3 broadcast filling a 16:9 widescreen and , of course, the picture has to be stretched to achieve this - hence the "squished" picture

So if you set the setting of the Freeview box or TV setting to the standard ratio 4:3 that should fix the problem.
Some freeview boxes will not pass the RF loop signal from input to output unless the box is left either on or at least on standby.
Take note of this if you are daisy chaining a freeview signal from the aerial thru the STB to DVD/VCR combi to TV.
Agree totally. For example, my DVD recorder uses .68W when in standby according to the book. Thats a bit less than half a kWh a month or, in cost terms, less than 4p at the rates I pay for electricity. There are much more effective ways of saving money and the climate.Believe me this matter is not a cause for concern
