Philips DVP520 - widescreen weirdness

    I recently bought the above player, which I'm using with my Philips 24PW6006 widescreen TV. The player is excellent in every way, except one...

    I have set the player's TV type to 16:9, but it outputs a widescreen signal to the TV even when playing 4:3 DVDs. My previous player, an LG, whilst infererior to the Philips, sent the correct aspect ratio signal to the TV depending on the aspect ratio of the DVD title or disc it was playing.

    I've emailed Philips, but am not really expecting a reply.

    Any ideas if there is a workaround for this, apart from manually switching my TV to 4:3 mode when necessary?

    Thanks in advance.
