    I bought a recon Alba (don't laugh,i only paid £19.50 for it)DVD recorder off Ebay,it's just to back up some stuff on my Sky+.

    If i connect it between the Sky+ box and the TV,the white colours become very bright,also,the picture switches from widescreen to 4:3,in the setup,i put 16:9.

    If i connect it to the Sky+ box where i had my old VHS recorder,the colours are o.k,but the picture still changes to 4:3.

    Any thoughts how i get get it to stay in widescreen?

    I do have the coaxial cables plugged in,if that makes a difference?

    In the Sky setup menu is it all set to 16:9?

    Yes,it is.

    I think i may have sorted the problem though,i went into my TV menu,and messed around with the AV connection settings,i changed something to do with the Digital input/ EXT input/output ? i am not quite sure how i did it,but it seems O.K now?
