    I've just tried to help someone with their Pioneer 434 and Sky+ box that is too big for the display. The Sky+ box is connected to the Pioneer media box via a half decent fully wired SCART lead in 'RGB' mode. Selecting PAL/composite made a slight difference, but still the display was too long to fit the screen. The Pioneer was indicating 625 Interlaced. All the zoom modes were tried plus any screen size/position settings all having no effect.

    I don't have any previous experience of Sky+ or the Pioneer, but I think all the combinations were exhausted. Maybe there are some hidden settings somewhere, especially in the Sky box? It was said that the two Sky installers when installing the Sky+ box they could not decide what screen size to use. Maybe it will be worth getting Sky back?

    DVD via component was 100% as confirmed on an Avia test pattern.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    You can choose 16:9 or 4:3 in the Sky+ setup.

    Is the SKY box on Input 1 of the Media Receiver?

    Guys, thanks for the replies. We tried all the settings we could see in the Sky+ box, an Amstrad unit. 16:9, 4:3 made no difference. Im not 100% sure what input Sky was on in the media box, but I think it was AV1.

    -Ian
