Pioneer 4280xd & sky HD changing between wide & full modes?

Hopefully the title says it, but basically when watching sky HD on my Pioneer 4280xd it keeps changing between standard wide and standard full causing a black screen for a couple of seconds. Any ideas??

The full setup is

Sky HD -> Onkyo 805 -> Pioneer

Thanks.

This happens on my sky hd box when switching from A hd channel to a standard def channel if sky hd resolution options are set to automatic, is this what you're seeing, I have a Pio 5090 but I don't know if that would be any help with regard to picture mode settings as it's a different model

Could someone post there settings for the 4280xd in respect of changing modes etc. ?
I am not sure what settings you mean. I have auto size at wide-zoom, Sky HD direct to tv and outputting fixed at 1080i. No problems.

I've disabled auto-size, it just happens, seemingly, randomly in the middle of program. So right now watching the hotel program and in the past 30 minutes it was swapped between modes full -> wide -> full causing a black screen for a few seconds 5 times! This could be in the middle of scene, so not even at the adverts or swapping between scenes.
