    I have a Loewe Aconda 32” Widescreen TV connected up to a PACE Sky+ box. The Sky+ is connected to the TV by SCART. When I’m watching a widescreen channel I get the TV switching between Widescreen and Zoom every couple of minutes. It tends to switch and then switch back perhaps a couple of times and then settle again. I have the Sky+ box set for 16:9 display and all SCART controls set on in the TV and SKY+ box. Can you suggest anything?

    Your TV is probably set up to auto-zoom when it detects a picture with black borders around it. If you check in your TV manual you may find it has a mode that means"keep it at 4:3 unless you get a specific signal on the SCART socket signal pins". On my venerable Panasonic set these are called "Panasonic Auto" and "4:3".
