    ..else who can help.

    My picture from my Sky box is too high for the TV. I've had a look at the TV's menu options but cannot see how to correct it.

    Please help me, very annoying especially watching footy as I cant see the score properly <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    hmmm... questions getting tougher, eh? Well, unfortunately i don't have sky, i have telewest digital.

    However, i think i know what you mean. The automatic screen modes will try to fill the screen with as much of the picture as possible. Sometimes these 'automatic' modes aren't too smart... I also think sky broadcast in 4:3 rather than 16:9 widescreen so if you force the picture to that then you should see it as God (Murdoch?) intended. The other modes are really artificial zooms and you end up getting things cropped. The button you need is under the flap of the remote control, bottom row, 2nd from the right. Have a play and see if it works.

    Good luck,<br />Simon

    I also had this problem and fixed it by pushing the down direction on the big navigation button in the middle of the remote. There is something in the manual about it but it's not very clear. I have a ITV Digital set up and have Sky Sports 1 and like you couldn't see the score in the box at the top until I tried the above.

    Sorted it chaps !

    I made sure my skybox was set to 16:9 and then changed auto picture format to widescreen and the picture is perfect.

    Thanks for your help.

    Im getting there !
