    Hi,
    The Z3 & Z4 use a Scart to VGA socket adapter to allow scart devices to be connected. I'm curious to know if the Scart pin 8 switching signal is implemented through this too. In other words, do the Z3 & Z4 do automatic 4:3/16:9 format switching?

    I've asked Sanyo and got a reply written in 'Japlish' which suggests that it works, but I wondered if it does in practice?

    Cheers

    As only the colour and sync lines get passed through then the answer has to be no.

    But then as I always use manual format switching as a matter of course it's never really bothered me.

    Regards
