I'm using a multi region Toshiba DR-1 DVD recorder, but this problem was also apparent on my Tosh SD220 DVD player. When I play a Region 1 anamorphic disc, my TV does not switch to widescreen automatically when viewed via the component connection to the DVD player. But on the SCART connection it behaves as normal and switches to widescreen as it should! The problem is only on region 1 discs via component - do they have a different method of widescreen switching?? Region 2 discs via component (and Region 0) are fine. Or is it a quirk of my TV (Tosh 32ZP18P). And why only on component, why is it OK on SCART?
