    When i watch ITV news the picture on my sammy H5 fills the screen top and bottom but has black bars on the sides the left hand black bar is smaller than the right hand one making the picture look slighty off to the left I cant see anyway to fix this anyone got any idea why this happpens. So far i only notice this with ITV news. TV is through Telewest digital.

    Thanks

    This is just the way ITV news is being broadcast at the moment, I've seen it too. It's probably coming out at 14x9 hence the two black bars and even if you set the Samsungs picture mode to 16x9 it will stretch the image out but will still leave a small bar on the right hand side.

    Not as bad as when ITV2 were broadcasting the Champions league,
    dont know how they got away with it.

    I found that changing to 4.3 from 16.9 on my Sky+ box gets rid of the side bars on my 28"crt, would that work the same on a Plasma?

    no...you'll get the side bars on a plasma unless you use teh 'just' setting which sort of stretches the 4:3 image to fit the screen

    You still get a black bar on the righthand side during the ITV news. I think it's something to do with the some news, particularly local news, being recorded in 4:3 and then broadcast as 14:9.
