    :lease: Have a Philips widescreen TV and Philips VCR.

    Any ideas why all of a sudden all recorded tapes are playing back in 4:3 format, which requires me to manually change the format of the TV to 16:9 every time!

    TV broadcasts are OK and I have checked SCART leads.

    Thanks

    By any chance are you recording from Sky Digital? I have found that the 16:9 signal isn't recorded, although my Freeview recordings all put the TV in the correct mode.
