    Hi,

    I just wasted an hour discovering that my new Quintro+ doesn't seem to properly support SCART widescreen switching. If I plug my Sky digibox (with SCART control turned on) into it then my TV always thinks that Sky is showing a widescreen broadcast. When I plug the same SCART lead directly into the TV then the TV happily recognises the difference between widescreen and non-widescreen channels.

    Is this a known problem? Having spent just £60 on it, I'm disappointed if it is :(

    According to B-Tech it's because my Viera doesn't accept a standard voltage on the widescreen switching pin. Back it goes to QED...

    Can anyone recommend a comparable SCART switcher that will work?
