    Just had Sky+ installed, and it's not appearing to tell the telly to switch between 16:9 and 4:3 broadcasts. The replaced NTL did this just fine, and I assumed that Sky+ would too. Is anything up?

    Check that scart control is set to on.

    Services -> Picture Settings - > Scart Control.

    Yep, the scart control is set on, but the TV still doesn't switch ratios. Turning the scart control off seems to have the same effect as changing from RGB to PAL, ie make the picture crappy. Is this right?

    Yes that happens on mine also.

    Can you check the scarts are connected properly? Make sure that it's the TV out from the Sky+ box that goes to your TV. The VCR out does not autoswitch and it is easy to get them mixed up by accident.
