Screen Aspect ratio

Just a quick one

Have just been watching the rugby (France v italy) before going to the pub to watch the England game

How come rather than fill my entire screen it came up in 4:3 with black bars vertically either side

I took it out of the onboard digital tuner and in analogue it filled the whole screen?

Similar i tried the digifusion PVr and again it filled the whole screen

Checked my settings in the menu on the plasma and it was set up at 16:9

so tried them all to no avail

Am i missing something:confused:

cause it comes from france as 4.3 if you go to picture settings in sky change to 4.3 than it fills the screen

Those french really need to catch up with the rest of europe on the aspect ratios dont they. LOL:D
