    My plasma does not switch to widescreen on component inputs from a Toshiba DVD player.

    Should it??

    My Panasonic DVD writer does do the correct switching and that is connected on Scart 1 (RGB)

    The old Toshiba RP switched ok on component input so is this feature only available on some type of sets??

    Widescreen switching via the scart is controlled by the voltage of pin 8 in the scart cable (+12v 4:3, +5v 16:9).

    The only way your Plasma can switch aspect ratio via component is if it uses Line 23 WSS. However it is unlikely that either your DVD player or Plasma supports this (check the specs).
