    Hi
    I am getting a black bar on the right of the screen on some BBC broadcasts, about an inch wide, BBC2 this morning, and sometimes when the studio broadcast goes to local news etc, are the BBC doing something strange, it only happens on BBC channels.

    It's because much locally generated material is actually 15:9, not 16:9. It's a compromise setting between 4:3 and 16:9.

    Are you only getting the black band on the right of your screen and not the left also? If it only appears on the right, it suggests your picture is not centralised on the TV.

    You can check to see how central your picture is by using the programme info panel - which is located dead centre on-screen.
