The hdd/dvd recorder is the hub of my system to which a second dvd/divx player is connected AND a sky box as well. This is so i can utilise all the functions of the hdd . Now the sky box is connected up via the vcr scart socket to the av2 socket on the rear of hdd/dvd recorder and i can watch sky no problem bar one , normally widescreen programmes would auto switch my widescreen tv to 16:9 mode ( via pin 8 ? ) ,but connected through the hdd/dvd recorder it won't ? I assume it has something to do with RGB input sockets ( i think ) correct me if i'm wrong . Thing is it's a pain to be manually switching the tv over to 16:9 mode whenever i want to watch a widescreen programme and back again when i don't where it used to automatically do so. Any thoughts as to how i can gain back my auto 16:9 switching ? Thanks.
