    I copied the film Black Rain from my Sky HD planner to my Sony RDR-HXD910 HDD/DVD recorder and the aspect ratio changed.

    Sky's title page (the blue screen that gives you the film info and length etc) remained full screen, the introductary trailers etc went from full screen to slightly stretched with fairly small black bands at top and bottom, and the film itself went from having smallish bands to very large bands, similar to non-anomorphic 2.35:1 appearances.

    It makes no difference changing the recording mode or copying to HDD rather than DVD. I tried the film The Accused and it went from full screen to slightly stretched. I've been into every menu I can find. I'm using a good QED scart lead between the Sky box and the recorder.

    Is this correct? I'm very grateful for any help.
