I have a philips 36 pw308. running through a telewest cable box

I have the cable box set on widescreen and the TV on Auto format. generally this is fine. but I notice when I watch football and sky news for example, that the score/graphics are only half in view ant the top of the screen. I don't like to put the TV on widescreen as people look fat!

I am sure it used to display the whole picture in auto format including the footy score on the top left. There is no way to manual adjust the format by a few lines is there?

Any ideas on what I can do?

You may have inadvertently switched on the subtitle view feature; press the down arrow on the remote (4-way key) and it should solve this for you although if you are stretching a 4:3 picture you should expect to lose a little off the top and bottom. Hope this helps ;)

Keep it in 4:3 if it's a 4:3 broadcast.

That way you'll see everything and in the correct proportions.

Doh! Thanks very much I had overlooked this. By the way, although I tweak the screen view with the 4 way control. It does not remember the setting when the TV is switched off and on.

A trip to the service menu adjusting the settings for "Superzoom" will fix this permanently. Do a search for "Philips Service Menu" on the forum and it should come up with some useful threads ;)
