Auto picture format issue


Standard Member
Hi knowledgeable people out there.

Can someone confirm whether the SKY+ box includes picture formatting information within its signal.

The reason I ask is that my Tv is capable of switching from 4:3 to 16:9 format & vice versa depending on the programme broadcast however it only seems to work on the TV internal freeview system & not Sky+ through the AV link.

I have checked all set ups on both my TV & sky box - the TV set up is the same as a friend of mine but he has a HD box & this works for him.

Could the HD box include the picture format info whereas the Sky+ does not????

thanks for the advice - however unfortunately this has not (as yet) yielded success.

any further suggestions would be welcomed or I may admit defeat as this has been annoying me for ages.
